About this property

  • Holmbush is an intriguing Grade II listed character home set within extensive gardens with a southerly aspect and an outlook over countryside beyond.

    The origins of the main house date back to the 18th/19th century, typified by the tile hung façade, pretty lattice porch with octagonal posts, timber lintel-sash windows and pretty fireplaces.

    Internally, the property is well presented with a lovely outlook to all sides, lots of natural light and many character features.

    The country-style kitchen opens through to the dining room with a huge brick inglenook fireplace creating family space, whilst the drawing room is more formal.

    The delightful Victorian sitting room links directly through to an impressive converted barn featuring a huge vaulted principal room which takes you even further back in time to the 16th century. This versatile space now provides substantial additional accommodation, including a fifth bedroom, office and gym which could be adapted to suit individual requirements.

    A major feature is the established garden which was part of the National Gardens Scheme for many years and wraps around the house to provide a good level of privacy to all sides. The manicured lawns are fringed by deep borders filled with a plethora of interesting specimen trees and shrubs with rose covered arbours adding structure and a wild flower meadow lies to the rear boundary.

    The property is approached via a gravel driveway to the front, with ample parking and turning space.
