About this property

  • 15 The Green is a delightful and characterful family home. The oldest part of the house is believed to date from 1650, with later additions in the late 1990's. The front door, with stained glass and leaded light panels, opens to the original hallway with its chequerboard quarry tiled floor and fireplace. The main reception rooms interconnect with glazed doors, ensuring natural light filters through to all rooms. The lovely family/garden room, kitchen/breakfast room are open plan, making for a wonderfully large family room with a south westerly aspect overlooking the garden. There is an Aga, separate gas hob and electric oven. Wooden base units sit beneath granite tiled worktops with a bespoke stainless steel sink unit. The utility room is situated just beyond. The dining room has two sets of glazed French doors with Heritage roof windows and is accessed directly off the kitchen.

    The drawing room with its inglenook fireplace and beamed ceiling is atmospheric and architecturally in complete contrast to the rooms to the rear. The square bay with its leaded light windows is one of four featured at the front, and oldest part of the house.

    From the hall, the sitting room leads on to the study with a connecting door to the downstairs bathroom, with a freestanding cast iron bath. This is also accessed directly from the hall. These rooms present the opportunity to create separate living accommodation should it be required.

    On the first floor, the principal bedroom has an en suite shower room and fitted cupboards and wardrobes. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. A second staircase rises to a fourth bedroom in the attic.

    There is a large front lawn with an ancient yew tree, gravelled parking area and a double garage. The rear garden is completely enclosed by mature hedging and features a wonderful variety of trees and shrubs, a well stocked pond, greenhouse, vegetable garden and rose covered pergola. A gravelled terrace spans the width of the garden room and overlooks a magnificent copper beech tree.

    In all approximately one acre.
