    About this property

    • Geddesden is understood to date from the 1950's and occupies a delightful setting, benefiting from approximately five acres of attractive gardens and grounds with a substantial pond, tennis court (in need of repair) and a selection of outbuildings, including a lodge with ancillary potential, garaging, stables, an office, greenhouse and store rooms.

      The light and airy internal accommodation offers the potential for some updating and, is mainly arranged over the ground floor with a first floor bedroom having direct access to a substantial loft area. In all it amounts to almost 3,000 sq ft with many of the rooms having an easterly aspect with outlook to the delightful gardens, grounds and pond.

      The approach to the front of the house is via a pretty and well screened courtyard where the front door opens to a light reception/entrance hall with turned wooden staircase leading up to the fourth bedroom. Sliding doors open to the gardens and double doors lead through to the very well proportioned split level reception space, incorporating a dual aspect sitting room enjoying a lovely outlook to both the pond, gardens and courtyard.

      Steps lead down to the separate dining area and link through to the kitchen/breakfast room with cupboards, central island and various appliances including a four ring gas hob, wall mounted oven and integral dishwasher. Adjoining the kitchen is the utility room with further storage and space for an American-style fridge/freezer.

      Also situated off the kitchen is the conservatory with French doors opening to the wide terraces. Located to the south of the reception/entrance hall is the principal bedroom suite with en suite shower room and dressing room with fitted cupboards. There are two further bedrooms which are served by an en suite shower room and family bathroom.

      Geddesden is accessed via an electric gate and shared drive, owned by the property. The expansive gardens and grounds provide a delightful setting extending to the north, east and south of the house. Lawned and wooded areas are under planted with spring bulbs and there is a wide variety of mature trees, a pond with waterfall feature, clipped yew hedging and ornate gates. A separate gate off the drive leads to the lodge with ancillary potential, four stables and tack room.
