A substantial Edwardian family home with versatile accommodation in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty enjoying wonderful established gardens and grounds.
The Beeches is an elegant and substantial south facing family home within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and enjoying fine rural views and a stunning established garden. The impressive reception hall sets the tone throughout with its generous proportions and is perfect for welcoming guests, it has a beautiful feature fireplace, tall ceilings and parquet flooring. To the left, and clearly the heart of the home is the wonderful open plan kitchen, dining and sitting room which seamlessly flows outside onto the terrace. This double aspect room is wonderfully appointed with the kitchen benefiting from a range of wall, base and drawer units, Aga, integrated electric oven and microwave and an induction hob. Adjacent to the kitchen is a useful utility room with plumbing and a pantry. The open plan dinning/sitting room is perfect for family life and entertaining with ample space for a dining table and a seating area. There is an open feature fireplace and double doors which open into the fabulous garden room where there are delightful views over the garden.
The Drawing room is of particular interest with delightful proportions, a striking open fire with Minster stone surround and hearth and two sets of double doors out onto the terrace. Further accommodation on the ground floor includes a study, separate cloakroom and WC.
On the first floor and accessed by a splendid staircase with a stained glass window are four bedrooms (two en suites) a shower room and separate WC. Three of the four bedrooms have spectacular views over the gardens with a special note on the principle bedroom with a superb en suite bathroom. Further stairs lead to the second floor where it is currently arranged as a self-contained apartment with a kitchen, sitting room/sixth bedroom, a further double bedroom and a bathroom.
Outside, the grounds and garden are a particular feature of The Beeches with a delightful countryside backdrop. The sun terrace, which is directly outside the south elevation runs the entire length of the property and is a superb area for alfresco dining. The garden itself is mostly laid to lawn and has an extensive range of established shrubs, trees and borders. The lawn gently slopes to a pond where there is an abundance of wildlife. Outbuildings include a detached double garage with store room, a range of stables/workshop and single garage within a courtyard.
