THE PROPERTY

A FABULOUS FAMILY HOME, WITH ONE BEDROOM ANNEXE/HOLIDAY LET ON THE EDGE OF THE VILLAGE. The East wing of an impressive late Victorian/early Edwardian country house constructed of mellow, red Broadmayne brick under a clay tiled roof, with clay hung tiles. Throughout the house windows, services, bathrooms and kitchens have been modernised and updated. This lovely family home of many years has been lovingly restored, extended and improved and is presented to market in immaculate condition. With high ceilings, light, bright and bursting with character the extensive work has been carried out to preserve the original features yet create a superb modern family home. On entering the house through the robust oak front door there is a lovely hall with a wooden floor and a fireplace bearing the initials of the family who previously owned the house. Accessed through the hall are the principal rooms of the house including the wonderful grand dining room with its sturdy beams and impressive fireplace. The study lies on the south side of the house overlooking the garden together with the large sitting room with its formal area on one side and a more informal, stone flagged area with a log burner in a pretty inglenook. One of the highlights of the property is the vast kitchen, dining and seating area in the new extension projecting south into the garden. Measuring just under 800 square feet (74 sq/m) this a fantastic living space which also has a large walk in pantry with butler sink. On the first and second floors are a collection of bedrooms of various sizes together with bath and shower rooms. There is a first floor sitting room with a small balcony used as a relaxing area and reading room. On the east side is a one bedroom cottage currently used as a holiday let and providing an income but would make ideal additional accommodation. OUTSIDE Access to the drive is shared. East wing has a separate area providing ample parking for both the main house and the cottage. The garden sweeps down from the house to the south and turns from formal garden to a wonderful Bluebell Wood extending to the horizon and far boundary. On the east side is a further large area of garden currently under utilised but with great potential and also located here is a large store. There is the possibility of planning for a further dwelling or annexe on the east side subject to the necessary consents.
