Spacious family home on the edge of a popular village, with a lovely rural outlook.
Dating from 1959, Meridian House is a large detached family home named after the Greenwich Meridian line which is understood to pass directly through the property. Situated in a leafy residential road on the edge of the popular village of Newick, the house offers just over 3,000 square feet of spacious accommodation, ideally arranged so that the main reception rooms and four bedrooms benefit from lovely views over the gardens and grounds to the rural landscape beyond.
The floor plan gives an excellent overview of the full extent and layout of the property. On the ground floor, the rooms are centred around an impressive reception hall from which an imperial staircase rises to the first floor. There are two formal reception rooms including a generous triple-aspect drawing room with carved stone fireplace, and a dining room with brick fireplace. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden units and black granite worktops, a central island, number of integrated appliances and a Falcon range oven; there is space for a breakfast table. A cloakroom with additional space for a washing machine and a useful boot room/rear hall complete the ground floor accommodation.
There are four bedrooms on the first floor, lying off a spacious first floor landing and study area. Bedroom one has an en suite bathroom with suite including a bath and separate shower cubicle; bedrooms two to four are served by two further bathrooms and a separate WC.
Meridian House is accessed from Lower Station Road via a right of way over a newly-laid tarmacadam driveway, which leads to a private parking area ahead of the house and on to the open-fronted car port.
To the west of the house and car port is a split level lawned garden, edged by trees and shrubs; there is a further area of lawn extending away from the house to the south, bounded by post and rail fencing. The remainder of the grounds comprise one fenced field, which lies to the south and west of the formal gardens. In all, about 1.2 acres.
Meridian House has a right of way over the driveway belonging to Dudley House, and contributes 50% towards the cost of its upkeep.
