About this property

  • The accommodation is set across the main house, a detached indoor swimming pool complex, two garages and several smaller outbuildings. In total (including glasshouses) there is nearly 5,000 sqft of accommodation.

    The house is approached by a gated driveway providing access to a double garage and a separate single garage. A path leads down to the house. To the ground floor is a welcoming entrance hallway and doors to the two principle reception rooms – a large drawing room and a good size dining room. The kitchen is very spacious with a central island separating it from a good family room with a door to the garden. Further accommodation is by way of a utility room and cloakroom. To the first floor are four double bedrooms and two bathrooms, with the main bedroom having a dressing room.

    Detached from the house is a sizeable indoor swimming pool with shower room and changing room. There are two garages, the larger of which is a double and has a useful workshop to the rear. A timber outbuilding/chalet makes for a useful summer room, and there are two glasshouses and a shed.

    The gardens surround the property and in total the plot is about 1.1 acres, with three accesses from Church Road.

    The property makes a lovely character family home, but subject to obtaining planning consent it could provide a starting point for a major alteration/extension project or possibly a plot for a new house.
