Impressive and well presented prime village house overlooking the cricket green.
Littlewick House is a wonderful detached substantial prime village house adjoining the village cricket green and nearby church. The house has impressive reception rooms with splendid ¾ height oak panelling throughout the hall and dining room. The sitting room, drawing room and dining room enjoy handsome open stone fireplaces, the dining room being a very atmospheric room with wall panelling, internal windows and oak floor. The layout of the ground floor rooms is very practical for both formal entertaining and informal family living. The kitchen/breakfast room benefit from oak wall and floor units, granite worktops, an electric Aga, a comprehensive range of appliances and an adjoining utility room with access to a larder with slate shelves. The kitchen/breakfast room also adjoins a morning room with stone flooring and French doors onto the south-facing garden terrace and swimming pool area.
On the first floor the excellent family accommodation comprises 7 bedrooms and 6 bath/shower rooms, 5 of which are en suite, together with a separate WC and bathroom, and the benefit of a secondary staircase. A number of the principal bedrooms have south-facing views over the cricket green.
The cellar (accessed from outside the house) houses 2 oil fired boilers for central heating and domestic hot water together with pool filtration equipment and wine store.
Littlewick House is a cherished family home, well presented throughout, and is of great appeal.
Approached through electrically operated iron gates, the gravel drive sits to the front of the house with a delightful formal garden around it enclosed by mature shrubbery borders and yew hedging. Beyond the turning circle to the north is a lovely informal garden/orchard with two magnificent copper beech trees and mature foliage on the boundaries for privacy. On the east side of the house is an expansive lawn surrounded by handsome brick paths which lead to a log cabin/store and a brick outhouse/gym (with light, power and TV). The lawns are very well kept with mature herbaceous borders around them and an established silver birch tree.
The games room with a studio above is situated close to the house and beside the detached double garage, where there is a pedestrian gate onto the village green. To the south of the house lies a wall enclosed garden with an attractive kidney shaped swimming pool and hot tub. A combination of stone and brick terracing provides great character and pleasant hard landscaping.
