About this property

  • This delightful period home dates back to the late 1920's and is full of character and charm. The property has been extended over the years and now provides charming family accommodation set in beautiful gardens backing on to woodland at the rear.

    The accommodation is arranged over two floors, with wood flooring extending throughout most of the ground floor. The reception hall, featuring a characterful elm open staircase to the first floor, flows into a lovely family room. A formal double- aspect dining room lies adjacent with a feature open fireplace and French doors to the garden. Wide double doors lead through to the elegant sitting room, with a triple-aspect giving delightful garden views. There is a further decorative open fireplace and French doors give access to the garden terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room, with its terracotta tiled flooring, forms the heart of the home, with an excellent range of farmhouse style units complemented by granite worktops and a large gas Aga. An island unit gives useful breakfast bar seating while a wonderful walk-in pantry is perfect for additional storage. There is ample space for a table and a door gives access to the garden. Just off the kitchen is a good sized utility room and boiler room. The garden room to the rear overlooks the beautiful rear garden and offers further reception space with a dual-aspect and two sets of French doors. A spiral staircase leads to a bedroom and adjacent bathroom, ideal for guests or teenage children.

    Accessed from the main staircase, the first floor accommodates a further five bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom overlooks the garden, with two sets of fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. Two further bedrooms have built-in cupboards and one benefits from a lovely balcony giving garden views. The remaining bedroom lies to the front and is currently used as a study.

    Outside
    A gravelled driveway provides off street parking and to the front is an area of lawn with a garden path to the front door. The rear garden is a real highlight, wrapping around the property to the side and with an extensive area of lawn and gated access to the woodland beyond. Several patio areas adjoin the house providing ideal relaxation and outdoor dining space. High hedging and mature trees on the boundaries provide screening and a good deal of privacy.
