    About this property

    • Overshot was designed by the celebrated architects, Godfrey Samuel and Valentine Harding in 1937, founding members of the Tecton Group. Listed Grade II, it is a good example of Modern Movement architecture. The principal rooms face south with views over the garden towards Bagley Wood, and the feeling of light and space is further enhanced by large windows throughout. With a practical and flexible layout arranged over two floors, it will appeal to families of all ages. The entrance hall runs along the north side and faces the large driveway. The welcoming drawing room leads to the dining room and has access to the south facing loggia. The kitchen and pantry were combined to create a single room in the 1970's, and in 2013 a new kitchen was instilled, which still maintained the original fitted cupboards and tiling. Beyond the kitchen are the original staff quarters, now occupied by a snug, separate WC, and doors to the garden and garage. Also on the ground is a boot room, store and useful shower room.

      The principal bedroom opens to a balcony with views over the rear garden and woodland beyond. The four further bedrooms are well proportioned, several have fitted wardrobes, and there are two bathrooms and a shower room. The ‘library', just beyond the shower room, offers immense flexibility immense flexibility and could be used as an artist's studio, games room or home office.

      The property is approached via a gravelled driveway providing ample parking and leading to the double garage. To the rear of the house is an attractive south facing terrace with steps leading down to a large lawn interspersed with mature trees.
