    About this property

    • 2 Oldlands Hall forms part of a handsome country house, believed to date from 1875, in a country estate setting benefitting from far-reaching views to the south. Number 2 is stylishly presented with contemporary fixtures and fittings and accommodation arranged over three floors. The property retains many period features including high ceilings, deep skirting boards, expansive sash windows, decorative cornices and a beautifully decorative ceiling in the drawing room and has been renovated and refurbished to an exceptionally high standard.

      There is a further entrance hall with Italian stone tiled flooring which continues into the drawing room.

      The kitchen has a sash window to the side overlooking the private garden. Also implemented in the kitchen are a range of bespoke fitted base and wall-mounted units under granite work surfaces and integrated appliances including two electric ovens, a dishwasher, a fridge/freezer and a ceramic hob.

      The utility area off the entrance hall has cupboards under a wooden worktop providing space and plumbing for a washing machine and the boiler.

      The dual-aspect drawing room comprises a decorative ceiling, a handsome stone fireplace and a bay window with an outlook to the rear private terrace and the countryside beyond.

      The wooden stairs lead up to the first floor landing with engineered wood flooring which continues into the bathroom and master bedroom.

      The stylish bathroom is situated off the landing featuring a modern free-standing bath; and the master bedroom is found beyond, commanding far-reaching views across the grounds to the countryside beyond through a bay window. Fitted wardrobes occupy one wall.

      White wooden stairs lead up to the second bedroom with a casement window to the rear which overlooks the fantastic views to the south. An en suite shower room with access to a small balcony to the front of the property completes the accommodation.

      Outside
      The property is approached over a shared estate drive with two entrances which leads to the main house where there is a large turning circle around a central lawn. To the rear of the house is an area of York stone terrace which enjoys views across the communal grounds and the countryside beyond.

      To the side of the house is a private area of level lawn with a further area of private grounds beyond and the detached double garage located within.
