About this property

  • 5 Echo Pit Road is a detached 1920's house set in 0.45 acres of well maintained gardens inspired by Gertrude Jekyll, with many fine features of its period, including high ceilings, large windows, fireplaces, and a charming 16' reception hall. The two well-proportioned reception rooms on the ground floor provide space, character and practicality in equal measure. There is also a kitchen/breakfast with a sliding door leading to the garden and a WC.

    On the first floor, are four bedrooms, three of which are doubles and a family bathroom. The principal rooms of the property all have views across the wonderfully landscaped gardens. Outside, there is a sweeping driveway leading to an outbuilding consisting of a garage, car port and a shed. There remains potential to extend the house (subject to the necessary consents).
