Full Details

Originally built, we believe, in 1887 the current owners have substantially extended the property with much thought and consideration to its history. They’ve combined this with a beautifully designed interior that highlights the individuality of the property, with flexible accommodation over four levels, double glazing throughout, charming fireplaces with log burners, wood floors and exposed beams, cottage-style wood doors and latches, luxurious bathrooms, an impressive Country-style kitchen and surrounded by its own landscaped gardens.

Sitting central in its gardens, there are two entrances into the property. The first is through a pedestrian iron gate within a brick wall with wood fence panels above, with paved steps leading up to the front door with a porch above, bordered by a laurel hedge and pebbled area for pots. The second access is via the gravel driveway, which provides off-road parking for two to three cars and leads to the double garage with twin up-and-over doors. As you enter through a wooden pedestrian gate on the left, you are guided down a few steps onto a grey gravelled pathway around both sides of the property.

Upon entering this superb home, the main reception hall leads into the delightful living room on the right with a wood floor, arches over the windows and central to the room is the log burner that sits in a brick-built fireplace on a raised tiled hearth, with a wood mantel above. Up a short wood staircase is the outstanding kitchen/dining room with a tiled floor and French doors out onto the terrace from the dining area, which also features a brick-built open fireplace with a raised hearth and wood mantel above.

The kitchen has a range of Country-style wall, drawer and base units with solid oak work surfaces and tiled upstands above, a range of appliances including an electric oven with a charming brick feature above, an induction hob with extractor hood above, space for a fridge/freezer, a one-and-a-half Porcelain sink unit with chrome mixer tap, two walk-in larder cupboards and exposed beams. An inner hallway takes you to the downstairs cloakroom with a low-level WC and wash hand basin, as well as the utility room, which has a one-and-a-half sink unit with mixers taps, based units with solid oak work surfaces, plumbing and space for a washing machine, a single cupboard with the gas boiler, tiled floor and a part glazed door to the outside.

Also off the inner hallway is the fabulous L-shaped triple-aspect lounge with a wood floor, a contemporary electric fire which sits on a raised tiled hearth and three sets of French doors leading out onto the terrace and into the gardens.

Wood stairs with turned balustrade take you to the first-floor landing with access to the loft, five bedrooms, shower room and family bathroom. All of the bedrooms have gorgeous wood floors, four are double-aspect, two have fitted wardrobes with sliding doors and one has a walk-in wardrobe, while the main bedroom has a beautiful fireplace with floor-to-ceiling brick surround. The shower room has a tiled floor with a pedestal wash hand basin with a mirror and light above, and an independent shower cubicle with a folding glass door.

The impressive luxury bathroom with a tiled floor has a white suite comprising a fabulous corner bath with mixer tap and handheld shower, a low-level WC, a heated towel rail and pedestal wash hand basin with a mirror above which has a delightful decorative surround.

The gardens are an outstanding feature and extend to the front and side of the property. Grey gravelled pathways are set around the edge of the manicured lawns bordered by timber sleepers and screen fencing. An extensive raised flagstone entertaining terrace is accessed from the kitchen/dining room and the lounge, offering ample space for entertaining and family gatherings. There is a further raised decking area that captures the sun, making it perfect for relaxing in the summer sun with a glass of wine. The detached double garage has power, light, a window and side access door from the paved path for easy entry. In front of the garage is a gravelled driveway that provides parking for two to three cars.
