With outstanding gardens and a paddock/meadow, totalling about 4 acres. Situated in an idyllic setting and providing the perfect blend of town and country.
Pulling off Hockett Lane into the front garden at Hockett End, the driveway sweeps past the garage and front door and leads to an Oak-framed car port and further parking area. An attractive landscaped frontage leads to the front door.
The ground floor entrance hallway is welcoming and of a good size, with doors to the formal reception room, study, cloakroom and kitchen. There are two formal rooms being a drawing room and dining room, with a study/office conveniently located at the front of the property overlooking the driveway. Through a large kitchen/breakfast room is a fabulous vaulted square family room with panoramic windows to the rear overlooking the rear garden. There is also a morning room, a spacious utility room and boot room with side-entrance door and internal access to the integral double garage.
To the upper floors are five spacious bedrooms and four bathrooms. The first floor has a master bedroom which is a good size with a range of fitted wardrobes and a large en suite bath and shower room. There are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. A wide sweeping staircase with atrium window curves up to the second floor from the spacious landing, providing access to two further large double bedrooms each having en suite facilities. The views from the first and second floor, and the atrium window on the first floor hallway, all look out over the lovely gardens and stunning wild flower meadow beyond.
The property sits within formal grounds of about an acre, being enclosed by an attractive Beech hedge. Within the formal gardens are numerous patios, mature borders, decorative and fruit trees and a rose covered pergola leading to the swimming pool. The pool has a view back to the handsome rear elevations of the house. A detached pool house provides room for garden furniture and houses the pool plant room, behind which is the garden machine room and shed.
A path leads from the formal garden through a gate in the hedge to the fenced tennis court, situated in a private location with lovely views to the south and west and surrounded by a beautiful wild flower meadow in the summertime. A post-and-rail fence separates the tennis court from the meadow. The meadow adjoins woodland to the west with open farmland to the south and has a separate access back to Hockett Lane ideal for horse boxes and trailers.
