THE PROPERTY

An exceptional family house with very well proportioned and light rooms, with separate two storey Coach House offering huge potential to convert (STPP), in an outstanding part of the countryside. First glimpses of Chattan Hall are most impressive with its very pretty faade under a pitched tiled roof. Formerly the principal part of a Victorian mansion, the property is believed to date back to the mid 1860s. On first entering the property there is a real sense of light and space with a beautiful entrance hall with high ceilings, and many other rooms in the house worth a special mention. The drawing room for example is a truly magnificent room, with typical Victorian architectural features including high ceilings, ornate cornicing and fantastic floor to ceiling windows bringing in an abundance of natural light and taking full advantage of the views over the delightful gardens. Despite its historical origins the property is not listed, and has recently undergone a fastidious program of works to create a superb family home with a real juxtaposition of old and new and exemplify family living. Owing to the fantastic rural position adjoining open fields, the property enjoys far reaching views across the Axe Valley. The family kitchen is also worth a special mention with pretty tiled flooring and incorporating a number of wall and base units and a breakfast bar. Alongside the kitchen is the formal dining room with high ceilings and a huge amount of natural light, ideal for entertaining on a large scale. A very clever addition to the rear of the property is the glorious conservatory which offers a very useful extra entertaining and family space and it is a room that can be utilised very happily all year round. The principal bedrooms are situated on the first floor including the truly magnificent master bedroom suite completing with a dressing room and en suite bathroom, two further bedrooms, a family bathroom and shower rooms. Although the property suits most family needs as it is there is still scope for any family to extend with a large boarded attic space providing the perfect opportunity should additional accommodation within the main house be required. Alongside the property is a two storey Coach House, see floor plan, which offers huge potential for a family to convert this as ancillary accommodation, either for an elderly relative or a perfect extra income stream. Previous Planning Permission has been achieved for the conversion of the Coach House. A particular feature of this property are the glorious and very well nurtured gardens amounting to approximately 2.1 acres which surround this wonderful property and incorporate a large sun terrace with two gravity fed water features with formal fountains, ideal for al fresco dining, relaxing and entertaining. There is also a very successful vegetable garden, fruit trees and well stocked flower beds which flourish at different times of the year. There is an abundance of smooth lawns which offer the perfect setting for lawned sports and garden parties alike. There is ample parking on a sweeping gravelled private driveway. All in all this is a magnificent family home in a wonderful part of the world.
