Guide Price Of £1,000,000

A most impressive and substantial Arts and Crafts style home in grounds of approx. 1 acre, with immense versatility and offering the potential to provide a self contained annexe, or the opportunity to run a business from home.

Built in 1905, Oakhayes is a most impressive substantial family home with extremely well-proportioned rooms, bursting with original features echoing that of its early 20th century origins, and has been lovingly improved and maintained by the current owners thus preserving its Arts and Crafts elegance and charm.
Ideally located a short distance from the town itself, it enjoys an elevated position affording a great deal of privacy in grounds extending to around an acre.
The accommodation itself is set over 3 floors, with two staircases, making it extremely versatile and offering great space for a growing family, multi- generational living or indeed the possibility to run a business from home.

The main entrance opens into very generous and inviting reception hall, a room in its own right, with a working fireplace, stained glassed windows, parquet flooring, and wide original galleried staircase climbing to the first floor, with doors leading off to all reception rooms. Undoubtedly a major feature of this property is that of the drawing room which has an original working fireplace, hand crafted mouldings to both the walls and ceiling, an impressive bay window and French doors leading to a sunny terrace; a perfect room for meeting and greeting your guests. The property boasts many Arts and Crafts style features such as the original built-in glazed wooden crockery cupboards in the butler's pantry and the servants bell. The sitting room, dining room and kitchen breakfast rooms all are inter connecting through part stained glass arched doors which can be opened up when entertaining, and all benefit from being south facing.

This is a truly stunning example of an Arts and Crafts family home, in a desirable and accessible location.

The property is approached via a private driveway where there is ample parking, turning circle and double garage with electric door. The gardens and grounds extend to approx. 1 acre and were professionally landscaped in accordance with drawings at the time of the original build. An attractive south facing terrace with trailing Jasmine canopy leads from the sitting room making this one of many sunny spots in which to enjoy alfresco dining. Beyond this, a boxed hedge lined pathway with steps lead to a lower garden area surrounded by ornamental low maintenance trees and shrubs which follows on to a level lawn, ideal for children to play. From the Kitchen/breakfast room, you can access another sunny paved terrace, with fish pond, which leads to the BBQ hut, summer house and heated outdoor swimming pool surrounded by palm trees, a great spot for afternoon sun. There are also a range of mature trees, and hedging which surround the gardens which offer a good degree of privacy.
