A substantial late Victorian village house with a fine garden and distant views
Mulberry is a very impressive late Victorian house, restored over the last eleven years to provide up-to-date and well presented family accommodation.
The sense of space and scale can be felt straight away and this lovely home feels very comfortable. The front door opens into a fine reception hall with stairs, a wood burning stove and library shelving and there are a number of special rooms to admire whilst walking around.
These include the formal drawing room and dining room, with their grand proportions and fireplaces, but also the large conservatory, accessed off the drawing room. Finally, the amazing top floor studio room, which is so unlike expected attic space, benefits from space and good light, overlooking the garden bellow and enjoying stunning distant views. Lots of period features have been retained throughout and the bespoke kitchen is imaginatively designed and well-equipped. Most of the bedrooms have bathrooms or shower rooms, individually thought through and nicely finished.
Outside, the rear garden is a further delight, being part-walled on one side and laid out in defined areas and landscaped with terracing and lawn, a wild flower meadow and a formal planted garden, with the vegetable garden and working areas beyond this screened-off by trellising.
Mature trees, plants and rhododendrons mark the borders, with interspersed feature trees, including a fine Ginko Biloba and magnolia, adding nicely to the overall picture.

For me, perhaps the perfect village house, which is close to the centre, offering high ceilings and generous proportions, complete with all the right rooms and tastefully presented throughout. Also, there is good parking, lovely views and a beautiful landscaped garden. Really hard to fault.Robert Jacobs
