About this property

  • West House provides the perfect combination of old charm and up to date facilities. Indeed the property is beautifully presented with a high degree of appointment throughout. On entering the property there is an immediate impression of style and quality carefully blended with the character of a Georgian period property. Equally the well-proportioned nature of the ground floor gives a sense of light and space. Indeed the light and natural flow is further enhanced by large sash windows and doors to the garden from the kitchen and front door. The reception rooms and kitchen are particularly attractive rooms which offer flexible accommodation. Both the living room and drawing room are fairly equal size and both benefit from double sash windows. The hand painted kitchen is superbly fitted with an excellent range of wall and floor cupboards. There is also the latest state of the art electric Aga and integrated dishwasher. The room is also home to a stunning original fireplace which makes for a lovely feature. Off the reception hall is a useful and well fitted utility room and a cloakroom. The hall/study gives access to the first floor which includes two large bedrooms and two bathrooms. This includes the luxurious master bedroom suite which is an outstanding light and airy room. On the second floor there are three further double bedrooms and a bathroom all of which are well appointed and highly practical. The present owners have imaginatively improved the garden with a comprehensive scheme of planting. The main lawned areas are on both the west and east side of the house. A glazed door leads directly from the kitchen to a flagstone terrace with a seating area The further garden to the west side has a number of well planted trees as well as a vegetable patch. The property is approached over a shared driveway which leads to the double garage and private parking area. From here a pathway leads up to the front door.

One of my favourite things about this house is the amount of natural light which floods through into each room.
