Impressive 4,753 sq ft family house in gardens of nearly an acre with plans drawn up but not submitted for a second house in the grounds.
Long Meadow is a substantial five double bedroomed detached family house which has undergone a number of important upgrades over recent years yet still offers the opportunity to move to the next level.
The house is set at the head of a long driveway and sweeps through the 0.93 acre gardens up to the house and sizeable garage. Such are the generous gardens, our clients have had plans drawn up which are available from our offices for a separate 4000 sq ft plus house to be constructed whilst retaining a manageable garden to the existing property.
With a sunny south facing aspect to the front, the property offers well planned and commodious accommodation over two floors.
The recessed arched and tiled entrance porch opens into a lobby area with the main hall off to the right. With English oak flooring and staircase leading up to the landing. A cloakroom and WC lie off to the left and a study/home office, again with English oak flooring lies beyond.
The three principal reception rooms all have English Oak floors and are arranged around the hall. These include a dining room with double French doors opening to the gardens, a large dual aspect lounge with a large fireplace recess housing a stone fireplace with an AGA wood-burner and double French doors open to a private terrace area. An opening leads off the lounge to the music room which has double French doors to the gardens and double doors back to the reception hall.
The utility/boot room has a French door to the rear garden, a door to the kitchen, granite surfaces and plumbing for a washer & dryer.
The large dual aspect dining kitchen adjoins a sizeable family room and could be readily combined to create a super living dining kitchen if required. Currently appointed with a gas AGA, AEG appliances including coffee machine, steam oven, conventional oven and microwave. Granite surfaces and a prep sink in an island with an induction hob, barbecue with a pop up extractor.
The adjoining family room opens off and has a triple aspect and French doors to the side and an American oak floor.
The landing has an oak balustrade and the five bedrooms lead off. The principal suite makes up the entire west wing of the house with a large dressing room and an en suite bathroom in Travertine marble with a separate bath and shower. The bedroom area has plenty of space for a sofa or chaise longue and the four remaining bedrooms are all good doubles, two have en suite shower rooms and the house bathroom serves the third and fourth bedrooms.
The large garage is over 32 ft in length and has external access to the first floor room via a rear entrance with a staircase off a hall with a gardeners WC and shower room. There are twin electric doors and a Belfast sink. On the first floor there is one large room with two Velux windows and access to under eaves storage cupboards. The garage building has a separate boiler and heating system.
The grounds extend to 0.93 acre in total and include a narrower section fronting Sand Lane through which the driveway sweeps to the garaging and the main house. To the left of the driveway is a wide lawn area for which our clients have had plans drawn for a second house although planning permission has not been sought. Copies of the plans are available at our office.
The gardens are very private and include extensive paved terrace area, screened areas with mature conifer hedges and a formal garden area to the front of the house. The property faces south and the majority of the gardens enjoy this sunny aspect.

Great sized family house in a secluded setting with the bonus of a potential plot in the garden if planning permission can be achieved.Mark HoldenProperty agent
