    About this property

    • Set back from the road, in a secluded position behind a wonderful front garden and mature hedging. Ashlea is a stand alone property in an enviable plot of about 0.40 acres. Dating back to around the 18th century with later Victorian additions, the most notable feature of the property is the front façade with its striking window surrounds and decorative porch.

      A property of particularly good proportions and presented in immaculate condition, the accommodation is arranged over two floors extending to over 2,245 square feet. The ground floor has a well appointed bespoke Newcastle kitchen, with quality integrated appliances. Opening onto a stunning Oak Leaf solid wood orangery, with underfloor heating, creating a beautiful bright space to dine or relax. The property benefits from a spacious dining room and drawing room with working Baxi fireplace. Additional accommodation includes a library, downstairs WC and utility room.

      The well balanced upstairs accommodation comprises four double bedrooms, served by two house bathrooms, all with views across the manicured gardens.

      The owners have clearly spent a lot of time creating a garden to enjoy and relax in, to the front there is a central lawn surrounded by mature boarders and at the rear the substantial lawn is dotted with fruit trees, surrounded by a large hedge providing a great deal of privacy.

      Just off from the gravelled drive there are three stables which could be utilised for a number of purposes but are currently used as an artists studio and storage. There are also two garages in addition to plenty of off street parking on the drive.
