Spacious period property with charm and character, set in over 3 acres and positioned in a delightful semi-rural location
Laughton House is an interesting period property, believed to date from the early nineteenth century and originally built as a Methodist chapel and minister's house. The property has charming brick and partially tiled elevations under a tiled roof, and offers substantial and flexible accommodation, arranged over two floors and extending to just under 4,000 square foot.
There are many lovely features throughout the property, including sash and casement wood framed windows, some wooden floors and high ceilings. The floorplans give an excellent overview of the full extent and layout of the rooms; of particular note is the spectacular 36 foot vaulted drawing room/ dining room, which has an impressive open fireplace and three sets of French doors to the spacious west facing terrace. The farmhouse-style kitchen/breakfast room is ideally suited for day to day life, with a central island, good range of wood cabinets under dark granite surfaces, and space for table and chairs.
There is a further sitting room, a triple aspect study and a gym/playroom, which could also be used as a fifth bedroom.
The master bedroom suite forms the first floor of the north wing of the house, and comprises: bedroom, seating area, dressing area with ample fitted wardrobes and storage, and spacious bathroom with contemporary fittings.
A ground floor guest bedroom, with direct access to the garden, lies off the sitting room and is served by an en suite bathroom.
There are two further bedrooms (one with a dressing room and study) and a bathroom situated on the first floor in the southern wing.
Laughton House is approached via an pair of electronically operated gates which open to the gravelled parking area ahead of the house.
To the south and north of the house lie the formal gardens, which have been formerly landscaped to provide distinct areas of interest including a pergola walk way, seating area, parterre, orchard and pond.
To the west lies the paddock, which is enclosed by post and rail fencing, and has a greenhouse and direct vehicular access to the lane. In all, about 3.2 acres.
