Rare opportunity in a fabulous location on the lower slopes of The Edge at the head of a 0.4 mile private drive, set in approximately 1 acre.
Originally a Victorian farmhouse, Daniel Hill was largely rebuilt and extended in the 1970s to create a family home in one of the area's most sought after locations.
Set at the head of this long single-track driveway, meandering through countryside and bordered by a lake, the property stands alongside a large two storey barn which is ripe for conversion into whatever buyer's needs dictate, subject of course to suitable planning permission being obtained. Currently it offers great storage on the ground floor with staircase access to good party rooms on the first floor. An open fronted garage lies alongside and a walled garden to the rear.
The main house includes a spacious boot room porch opening into a large hall with a feature curved wall and a cloakroom and a separate w.c. The triple aspect dining/sitting room has an oriel bay window, an exposed brick wall and the second reception room has a fireplace with a slate hearth and a French window opening to the side. The kitchen features a dual aspect, oak door cupboards and laminate flooring. A door leads off to the hall with a pantry and another door leads to the dining/sitting room.
A turning staircase, with a half cellar store beneath, leads up to a half landing then the main landing off which there are three double bedrooms including the principal bedroom with fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom with a corner bath and an over bath shower. The house bathroom also has an over bath shower and there is a separate washroom with a w.c.
The staircase continues up to the second floor where there are two further double bedrooms with access on both sides to large under-eaves storage areas.
The barn stands separately on the far side of the front courtyard area and includes an adjoining open fronted garage, fantastic storage space to the ground floor with a staircase leading up to the first floor with two large rooms linked by a gallery walk-way.
There is a former pig sty adjoining the garage and to the rear an outside dual seat privy. At the rear of the barn is a super walled vegetable garden, now lawned, with a greenhouse. The gardens extend well to the rear with many specimen trees and shrubs and are a haven for birds and wildlife.
The central heating boiler is currently not working and probably requires replacement. The sewerage system may not meet current regulations and could require upgrading.
The owners of this property are responsible for maintenance of the driveway and cattle grids over which the local farmer has a right of way for access to his fields.
Services: Mains water and electricity are connected.
