    About this property

    • Oakwood is a beautifully presented period property built in the 1920's and has been in the same ownership for over forty years. The accommodation is arranged over three floors and is equally suited to both relaxed and formal entertaining. The property benefits from wonderful mature landscaped gardens together with outbuildings, including a detached spacious two bedroom self contained annexe.

      A covered porch opens into a welcoming reception hall with tiled flooring and a decorative handmade Italian wrought iron staircase to the first floor. Of particular note, is the beautiful oak flooring in many of the rooms. The sitting room is impressive being dual aspect and featuring a beautiful Victorian Italian marble fireplace with an open fire. The room also enjoys French doors from a large bay window opening on to the garden and terrace. A formal dining room, overlooking the frontage, features panelled walls and decorative coving. Located to the rear with a wide bay window giving lovely views over the rear garden is the kitchen/breakfast room, equipped with an excellent range of units complemented by deep granite worktops. The breakfast area has plenty of room for a table. A stable door opens into a delightful enclosed porch area, with a cloakroom and door access to the front and rear gardens, and gives the ideal spot for relaxed seating. Linking to this area is a large room, giving a useful flexible space, ideal as a playroom, with a store room to the rear.

      On the first floor the principal bedroom overlooks the garden and offers a fitted wardrobe together with a generous en suite bathroom with a freestanding roll top bath. There are two further bedrooms, one with built in wardrobes, both served by a family bathroom with a jacuzzi bath, and a separate night cloakroom. On the second floor are two bedrooms served by an adjacent shower room, and would be ideal accommodation for an au pair or teenager.

      Annexe
      To the rear of the garden is a significant annexe with a very large sitting room, which also features a wood burner. There are two bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchen area. This is a fantastic addition to the house and would be perfect for staff accommodation or for entertaining.

      Oakwood sits well in its own grounds with wonderful gardens to the front and rear. The house is approached through electric gates on to a wide gravelled driveway with ample parking and a double car port. The property enjoys an impressive frontage with a large area of lawn incorporating a variety of oak trees and the grounds are well screened with an excellent variety of evergreen planting. There are two large storage sheds to the front and a terrace area nestles in the far corner giving the perfect spot to relax. Gated side access leads to the rear garden, backing on to open fields, which is mainly laid to lawn with well stocked beds and borders with a wonderful variety of plants and trees including rhododendrons and olive trees. An extensive terrace adjoins the rear of the house which is ideal for entertaining and summer dining.
