Delightful Edwardian house with a large garden.
This delightful Edwardian house is believed to date back to 1911 and combines a perfect blend of character features and modern finishes. The property has been extended and updated in recent years to provide a lovely family home with the benefit of a wonderful mature rear garden.
A covered front door opens into the reception hall with stairs to the first floor, storage and a cloakroom. To the front of the house is a charming morning room, with a bay window overlooking the frontage and a decorative period fireplace. Double doors lead into the dining room which features a stunning Edwardian fireplace with surround. The kitchen and adjacent sitting room are the hub of the house, with a roof lantern flooding the space with natural light. The kitchen itself is part vaulted and enjoys a comprehensive range of Shaker style units complemented by Silestone worktops. The quarry tiled flooring extends into the sitting room which is of excellent proportions and perfect for family life. The room features a freestanding wood-burning stove, built-in storage, and corner bi-fold doors open on to the garden and terrace bringing the outside in. Just off the sitting room is a guest bedroom, with an en suite shower, but is a flexible space and would be ideal as a family/play room. An inner hallway gives further built-in shelving and storage together with a utility area, with space for appliances, which is cleverly concealed with shuttered doors.
The first floor cottage style accommodation has three bedrooms, served by a family bathroom, and a characterful study. The bedroom to the front has a range of fitted wardrobes, stripped floorboards and a decorative fireplace. The two remaining bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes, enjoy lovely views over the garden.
Apple Trees is set back from the road with a gravelled driveway to the front and high hedging providing screening. The property enjoys an attractive frontage with a fine apple tree, and a beautiful wisteria clads the front of the house. Gated side access leads to the rear garden which is delightful, and a real feature of the property. A terrace, adjoining the sitting room, gives the perfect spot for outside entertaining. The garden is beautifully tended with an expanse of lawn and well stocked beds and borders providing colour and interest. There are a variety of trees including an ornamental weeping pear and apple trees. Towards the rear of the garden is a York stone patio, and beyond this a large kitchen garden area with raised planters. The garden enjoys a good deal of privacy, enclosed with fencing, mature shrubs and trees and benefits from three storage sheds.
