A handsome and well-appointed village property.
Weston House is entered through a portico covered porch and into a welcoming reception hall with a detailed fire surround and oak floorboards. A discreet lift is positioned in the corner which serves the first floor. An inner hallway provides access into the beautiful and elegant drawing room, with shuttered sash windows, a door leading onto the gardens, an inglenook fireplace with a gas wood burning stove, oak floor boards and exposed beams. The room is double aspect with high ceilings allowing the feeling of light and space.
The dining room is accessed off the drawing room which has parquet flooring, a wood burning stove with a marble fire surround and sliding doors leading into the wonderful open plan kitchen breakfast and garden room. The ground floor flows beautifully offering a great space for entertaining and for a family.
The kitchen has a number of fitted units along with a central island with an integrated fridge and dishwasher, butlers sink, a two oven AGA and granite worktops. There is an extremely useful pantry off the kitchen, which is fitted with shelving and has quarry tile flooring. There is also a laundry room with a fitted sink and drying space and a door leading outside onto the courtyard.
The garden room was fitted in 2008 and is oak framed with large glazed windows. It enjoys views over the garden and fields beyond with double doors leading outside onto a wonderful terrace. It offers further reception space and adds a very sociable aspect to the house. There is a cloakroom and a back staircase plus an office/gym with hot tub and French windows, a study/snug which has separate access and could potentially be used as ancillary accommodation with two double bedrooms on this side of the house.
The first floor has a spacious principal bedroom with a dressing area and en suite bathroom with a separate bath and shower. Bedroom two is a double room with the lift from the ground floor and an en suite shower room. There are a further two double bedrooms and a separate family bathroom.
Weston House is approached via a gated gravel driveway which extends along the front and side of the house with allocated parking areas. The gardens are mainly to the front and side of the house and are mostly laid to lawn with mature hedging and a mixture of flower and herbaceous borders. To the rear of the house is a garden storage area with two sheds and a paved walkway to the sheltered courtyard, which is perfect for alfresco dining during the summer months. From the courtyard and looking up, the original bell is still present which used to call the farmworkers in from the fields.
