A beautifully refurbished family home with annexe potential and secluded grounds situated in a prime location in this sought after village * Cranbrook School catchment area * Pelham is a substantial property thoughtfully extended and sympathetically renovated to create a beautifully presented family home. The accommodation is generously proportioned with many of the rooms being double or triple aspect taking advantage of high levels of natural light and affording outlooks over the garden, orchards and countryside. There are oak internal doors and low maintenance double glazed windows throughout. The interior is bright and airy with décor in a range of neutral tones. The bespoke kitchen is by JM Interiors and provides stylish contemporary cabinets with leathered granite worktops and a host of creative storage solutions. There are beautiful natural stone floor tiles with under floor heating in the kitchen/breakfast room. The house retains its original integrity, with a charming vintage 1950's ''English Rose' aluminium fitted cabinets in the utility room, feature archways and classic parquet flooring. This is complemented by new oak joinery installed by traditional local craftsmen. The breakfast room, drawing room and reception hall all benefit from French doors to the terrace, creating ideal space for entertaining and socialising. The mature gardens and grounds are a particular feature of the property, well screened by mature hedges and established trees they provide a secluded setting. A terrace overlooking the gardens from the kitchen creates the ideal spot for al fresco dining, and there is a second wide terrace accessed from the drawing room, creating an alternative spot to enjoy the outlook. The expansive lawn is interspersed with well filled beds and borders creating colour and interest throughout the seasons. In addition there is a productive kitchen garden and greenhouse. The property is approached through electric gates to a substantial parking and turning area providing space for numerous vehicles adjacent to the garage. The detached brick and tile hung garage currently has a useful play/store room above but benefits from planning permission for extension to create a self contained annexe. This creates opportunities for a number of uses and would be ideally placed to be considered for Airbnb (see Agent's notes).
