    • Elmstead is an impressive family home dating from the late 1800s retaining many character features and has implemented planning permission in place to extend to one side creating a kitchen/breakfast/family room. The principal accommodation is well-proportioned and is arranged to benefit from the southerly views over the rear garden. These established gardens provide a high degree of privacy and in total the plot amounts to about 1.32 acres.

      The principal reception rooms provide attractive areas for formal and family living and all have views over the south facing garden. The drawing room is triple aspect and has parquet flooring and an impressive open stone fireplace, together with a full height bay window with doors to the rear terrace. The dining room has a square bay window and the snug has a door to the rear terrace and a fireplace with a wood burning stove.
