About this property

  • Mygunya is a substantial detached property, originally constructed in 1948, with later additions, and enjoys a superb location on the periphery of this attractive village, and benefits from far reaching views over open farmland. The property is ideal for enlargement and extension(subject to planning) and could allow a new owner to create an imposing country residence, as it is centrally located within the width of the plot.

    The property benefits from attractive features throughout associated with this period, such as large bay windows to the front, high ceilings, picture rails, deep moulded skirting boards and detailed architraving. An appealing solid oak door with arched top, is set within a decorative reveal, and opens to the reception hall which has parquet flooring, a solid oak staircase rising to the landing and doors to the principal reception rooms.

    The drawing room is situated to the front elevation of the property, it is a well-proportioned room and has an attractive red brick fireplace with tiled hearth. The dining room is situated adjacent to the drawing room, at the front of the house and has the same attractive period features, and an oak serving hatch that comes from the kitchen. In addition there are sliding patio doors to the side elevation.

    The kitchen/breakfast room is particularly impressive, positioned to the rear with views over the grounds, and runs the entire width of the original house with sliding doors to an extensive terrace, and as such is readily suited to large scale family entertaining. It is extensively fitted with a range of cream fronted units, with granite work surfaces, and a range of Neff integral appliances. There is solid oak flooring, further storage cupboards and a spacious breakfast area. A glass door accesses a particularly impressive conservatory, which has parquet flooring and French doors to a large west facing terrace.

    A door to the rear lobby leads to a large cloak/shower room, beyond which is an immensely practical boot/utility room, which could be used for a variety or purposes. Beyond this is a series of rooms comprising a study/bedroom/ shower room and kitchen/dining room which could make a perfect annexe or home office if desired.

    The first floor is equally appealing, with a spacious galleried landing

    The principal and guest bedrooms are situated to the front of the property and have the aforementioned period detailing, built in wardrobes and both are of a generous size overlooking farmland to the front. The guest bedroom also has a well-appointed shower room. The two remaining bedrooms are situated to the rear, and overlook the grounds, and are served by a family bathroom.

    The property is approached via iron gates, leading to a large carriage drive which is flanked by mature hedging and a semi-circular lawn bordered by lavender. There is an attached double garage which can be accessed from the drive, with further extensive areas of hard standing, which access further storage buildings, to include an L-shaped cart lodge with tiled roof, and adjoining storage building.

    The grounds are particularly impressive, and are distinctly segregated by mature hedging, terraces, lawn and trees. Immediately to the rear is a full width terrace with ornamental pond providing a focal point on the westerly aspect, which is adjacent to the conservatory. The boundaries are all defined by mixed hedging and mature trees, which provide a high degree of privacy and dappled shade when required.

    Large areas of lawn are interspersed with a variety of shrubs and roses, beyond which is a delightful pond, with irises and other wetland plants, which abuts a small spinney which is planted with a variety of impressive native tree species. The remainder of the grounds comprise further areas of lawn, a former fenced grass tennis court, which would benefit from some improvement and densely planted mature trees.
