About this property

  • Closing date for best and final offers: 4.30pm Wednesday 2 December.

    Set in a superb elevated position in just under an acre of gardens, Wyncrest is a delightful detached home situated in a semi-rural location in the popular village of Danehill. The house is understood to date from the 1930s with some later additions and, whilst being a well presented and clearly comfortable family home, offers a buyer plenty of scope for further modernisation and improvement.

    Extending to just over 2,400 square feet, the layout and full extent of the house can be seen on the floor plan. Of particular note are the two main reception rooms, conservatory and bedrooms one and two, all of which are situated on the southern side of the house, their windows framing glorious views over the garden and countryside beyond.

    Wyncrest is accessed day-to-day by a door opening directly into a welcoming kitchen and breakfast room, which is fitted with a range of bespoke oak units, granite worktops and a number of integrated appliances, and has a useful walk in larder cupboard. The original front door offers a more formal entrance for visitors, opening to a hall/boot room off which lies a cloakroom and a deep utility cupboard with a butler sink and space for laundry appliances. There are two main reception rooms: a formal dining room, and a large sitting room with an open fireplace and French doors opening to the garden; the custom-built conservatory was added in 2008 and has underfloor heating and auto-opening ceiling windows. A study with fitted bookshelving completes the ground floor.

    There are four bedrooms on the first floor, including a lovely principle suite with bedroom open to a dressing area with freestanding bath, and an en suite shower room. Bedroom two is an ideal guest room, enjoying the lovely views and having a large en suite bathroom. A family bathroom serves the remaining two bedrooms.

    Wyncrest is approached from the lane via a long, gated driveway which winds up the western edge of the garden to the office/studio, garaging and the house beyond.
    The detached office/studio offers excellent opportunity to create a large home-working space; there is an adjacent double garage with electronically operated roller door. To the north of the house is an additional parking space and secondary gated access to Tanyard Lane.

    The gardens are a delightful feature of the property, lying mainly to the south west and sloping gently away from the house, enhancing the views beyond. Adjoining the house is a paved terrace from which steps descend to sweeping lawns dotted with flower borders, planted with mature shrubs including some spectacular acers. There is a rockery and ornamental pond, and at the southern end of the garden a productive kitchen garden and small orchard.

    Useful garden outbuildings include a greenhouse, timber shed, cactus house, potting shed and heated dog kennel.

    In all, about 0.76 of an acre.
