About this property

  • Set back from a peaceful tree-lined private road, number 1 The Cloisters is one of three properties arranged around a courtyard. The property forms one side of this unique and picturesque building with the former groom's house opposite and adjoins what used to be the stables, with its elevated clockface and Belvedere Tower. The house is approached via a shared gravel driveway with ample parking and a detached double garage.

    The house was converted for residential use in the 1930s and retains many character features including stone mullioned, arched and porthole windows, high ceilings and generously proportioned rooms.

    The entrance to this beautifully presented home is from the courtyard. The welcoming hall leads to a spacious double aspect living room with a sandstone fireplace and wood burner and French doors leading down to the terrace and garden beyond. At the front of the property is a charming family room with parquet flooring which is currently used as a study. Turning right off the hall Is the large dual aspect open plan kitchen/ dining room. It is delightfully light and has an excellent range of wall and floor units providing ample storage with the added bonus of a pantry. The adjoining utility room has further storage and space for appliances and has a separate cloakroom. On the first floor there are four bedrooms all with fitted wardrobes, three of which are spacious doubles. The dual aspect master bedroom also has an en suite bathroom with underfloor heating. Completing the first floor is the family shower room also with underfloor heating.

    The tranquil and sheltered south-west facing rear garden features well stocked and tended beds with a variety of plants, shrubs and specimen tress as well as an ornamental pond. Beyond the garage in the corner of the garden is a paved area with a shed and a compost area.
