Electric gated driveway & parking, garden store under bridge access, gardens and paddock and river frontage. In all about 2.34 Acres (sts) THE PROPERTY Willow House is a substantial home, which has undergone significant enlargement and improvement from the original cottage that was once on the site. The accommodation is exceptionally versatile and has worked very well for a multi-generational extended family. A spacious entrance hall affords access to the two reception rooms for the main house and a superb kitchen/dining/living room. The kitchen offers a good range of base and wall mounted units with breakfast bar, work surfaces, inset electric hob with extractor fan above, sink and integrated larder fridge and dishwasher. French doors open to the garden and an anti-room to the side affords space and plumbing for automatic appliances. There is a well proportioned family sitting room and a snug/study through which access is gained to the former games room. This games room has been superbly converted into a ground floor annexe with separate access from the garden via French doors into the kitchen/living/dining room. There is also a bedroom that leads off this room with en-suite shower room. This accommodation is considered ideal for extended families that want to live together but wish to retain their independence. An easy rising staircase leads up to the five bedrooms with the master bedroom having an en-suite bath/shower room. There is also a separate family bath/shower room. OUTSIDE Willow House is approached via an electric gated tree-lined drive giving access to a large parking and turning area for several cars. The former garage has been skilfully converted into a detached self contained annexe with Kitchen, Sitting Room, Bedroom and Shower Room all with independent under floor gas fired underfloor heating. This therefor further improved the versatility of the accommodation available. The rear garden, which can be accessed via a pedestrian gate at the side of the property, features a large expanse of lawn with good-sized patio areas ideal for barbecues and al-fresco dining. There are a number of mature trees and shrubs; with the grounds extending down to the River Lark. A former Victorian railway bridge gives access below Rushbrooke Lane to the paddock on the other side which also benefits from river frontage and was purchased by the current owners from the Rothchild family (who retain a 50% clawback clause on the uplift value on the land they sold should planning permission be granted for development in due course) when they owned The Rushbrook Estate, which farms the land around the property. A right of access was also granted from the paddock onto the lane in the case of emergencies, for access to horses.
