    About this property

    • A rare opportunity to purchase an impressive grade II listed detached family house by Charles Ashbee the noted architect, designer and leader of the Arts and Crafts movement built in 1907.

      Set back from the road and with a double vehicular entrance Byways has been sympathetically modernized, restored and extended by the current owners whilst preserving its original design features. Byways provides well balanced accommodation with the reception rooms enjoying southerly, easterly and westerly aspects and views across mature gardens. The drawing room, with music room off, is particularly impressive with deep square bay windows, double aspect and open fireplace. The extension successfully adds to the character of the property, enhancing its sense of space and light with a spacious breakfast/sitting room and kitchen with vaulted ceiling and double French doors to a private terrace. A well-appointed kitchen has Miele appliances including ovens, microwave, hob, extractor and dish washer. With under floor heating the extension lends itself to entertaining and family living.

      On the first floor are four bedrooms (one with en suite shower room), family bathroom and study. The second floor provides two further bedrooms and a bathroom.

      It is believed the gardens were laid out by Ashbee and are still preserved in the original style with lawns, deep borders and a separate kitchen garden with greenhouse and potting shed.
