About this property

  • Description
    Mile House is a delightful detached house which has been extended over the years and now offers flexible family accommodation which is beautifully presented throughout. If needed there is the possibility to divide the property to provide a separate annexe for staff or family members as there are two staircases.

    The drawing room is a lovely triple aspect room with an open brick fireplace with a copper canopy. The kitchen/dining room is at the heart of the home and opens to a large family room. It is well appointed with limestone flooring with underfloor heating and painted wall and floor units arranged around a central island providing a prep area and breakfast bar. There is a 3 oven range cooker with an extractor over and integrated appliances include dishwasher, fridge, freezer and microwave/combination oven. Both rooms have double doors to the south facing garden terrace providing the perfect place to enjoy outdoor dining overlooking the mature garden and to the woodland beyond. Doors also open to the terrace from the garden room which in turn is accessed via double doors from the sitting/TV room. This charming room has a fireplace housing an electric wood burning stove, bookshelves and a cupboard. Off this is the library which overlooks the front garden and has three walls of bookshelves, a feature fireplace and stairs to the first floor.

    To the first floor the light and spacious master bedroom has doors opening to a balcony, fitted wardrobes and en suite bathroom as well as a walk-in wardrobe. There are four further double bedrooms and a family bathroom and shower room.

    Mile House is accessed from the road via electric solid timber gates, with entryphone system, opening to a large gravel parking area to the front of the detached double garage with store room to one side. The lovely gardens wrap around the house and are laid mainly to lawn with mature flowerbeds and borders planted with a variety of shrubs and hedging. The garden opens out to an area of woodland giving the perfect backdrop to the pretty garden. There is a south facing terrace, accessed from the kitchen, family and garden room for al fresco dining and to enjoy the lovely surroundings.

    Beyond the fenced garden is a further area of woodland with a footpath leading to the valley beyond and there is a separate area of wood which runs along the opposite side of the road which also belongs to the property. In all about 1.5 acres.
