The Dene is a lovingly extended and restored family home enjoying extreme peace and tranquillity and situated in a quiet hamlet and surrounded by dense woodland. Offering versatile living with the benefit of an annexe, which provides live/work or income potential, a great deal of attention has been lavished on the property.
Constructed circa 1840 from rendered and stone elevations, the present owners have installed double glazed casement windows throughout and many modern enhancements have been added improving the living experience. Standing within established gardens which enjoy a south easterly orientation and situated next to a shallow brook, there are level lawns, large split level sun terraces which span the rear elevation and a garage/workshop which also offers further opportunity.
The Dene comprises two storey accommodation with the ability to incorporate the annexe should one wish and has been designed with low maintenance in mind. There are hard floors throughout with underfloor heating and a subtle palette. The reception hall is the central axis with a rising staircase to the first floor and there is a split level sitting/dining room, the former includes a wood burning stove with a tiled hearth and the latter, which is a single storey extension has a triple aspect and the benefit of doors opening on to the terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room is the central hub, large with high ceilings with traditional beams and incorporating a range cooker fuelled by LPG gas and there is a twin bowl Belfast sink, space for a fridge freezer and an integrated dishwasher. The focal points are French doors opening on to the terrace and a further wood burning stove. Located off the first floor landing there are three good sized bedrooms served by the family bathroom with shower and roll-top bath. The annexe offers good income prospects and as previously stated could be incorporated on the ground floor. There is an open plan kitchen/living/diner with a wood burning stove and above a bedroom and comprehensive shower room.
The surrounding woodland provides excellent cycling, mountain biking and walking opportunities and therefore income can easily be generated from the annexe. The property is approached via a gated drive with a large area of parking and access to the garage which has its own independent office or workshop. The gardens lie to the rear and side of the property with terraces, a pond, an orchard and a few outbuildings. The curtilage is fenced and with random stone walls and borders the picturesque brook.
If you want to live a quiet outdoor life in a haven for birds, butterflies and bees, this is the ideal home for youRichard Brooks
