About this property

  • The Copper Beech is an attractive character home understood to have been built in the 1890's and has been maintained and improved by the current owners.

    The bespoke kitchen/breakfast rooms was designed by Aspect Kitchens and has been beautifully fitted with cabinetry in a traditional style, built-in appliances and a two door gas fired AGA. There is ample space for dining and entertaining and access to outside. There are three well-proportioned reception rooms and a study. These spaces are all wonderfully light and enjoy garden views, two of the receptions have the benefit of fireplaces. A utility room, walk-in larder and cloakroom complete the downstairs accommodation.

    The lower ground floor has been cleverly converted and is a versatile space currently presented as a library and a cinema room.

    On the first floor is a generous arrangement of accommodation. The double aspect principal bedroom has been fitted with built-in wardrobes and has French doors opening to its own balcony overlooking the garden. There are three further bedrooms, two with en suites and an additional family bathroom with elongated bath and shower with Hand Grohe fittings.

    The house sits well within its plot and the gardens are immaculately presented having been designed and landscaped by the current owners. Of particular note is the impressive Copper Beech tree, planted about 120 years ago when the house was originally built. The south facing rear garden has several pleasant seating areas, a large area of level lawn and framed by mature trees and hedging. The garden has a commissioned lighting system for the paths, gates and beech tree.

    An alternative working space is the superb home office in the garden with broadband and electric heating. A double garage with electric doors has an adjoining garden room and a large storage area above.
