    About this property

    • The house, which was originally built in 1905 of brick beneath a tiled roof, has been considerably improved and modernised over recent years by the existing owners to provide a family house of the highest quality and specification. This has been achieved whilst retaining the classical features of a property of this era and enhancing them with the finest quality fixtures and fittings and exemplary workmanship.

      The accommodation, which extends to approximately 3,758 sq ft, is approached through a generous reception hall which creates a dramatic first impression with the views through to the garden beyond the drawing and dining rooms. Oak flooring runs throughout these areas, and the high ceilings and large cornicings add to the classical effect. The large drawing room with its bay window overlooking the garden and St Giles Hill is a tremendous feature, and this in turn opens to the dining room. A door from these rooms leads out to the side garden, and there is also access to the elegant orangery. The kitchen/breakfast room, which measures some 34'9” x 21'5” is equally impressive and beautifully fitted with a range of units with granite surfaces over and superb stone flooring. Doors from the breakfast room lead out to a small terrace, ideal for al fresco dining. Other notable rooms include the excellent study, which could be utilised as a separate sitting room, and the small sewing room which could make a very good office. On the first floor there are four good bedrooms including a principal bedroom suite with adjoining bath and shower room, guest suite with adjoining shower room, two further bedrooms and a family shower room. The roof space can be accessed from the large landing, and it may be possible subject to the necessary planning consents and approvals to create further accommodation in this area.

      Outside the property is approached over a driveway with metal gates leading to a large parking and turning area. The gardens, which lie predominantly to the western side of the house, are laid mainly to lawn, and to the southern side of the property there are terraced areas providing superb space for external dining and entertaining. The gardens themselves have been beautifully stocked and maintained with a variety of specimen shrubs and trees.
