THE PROPERTY

SOLD BY JACKSON-STOPS........... A FINE FAMILY HOME WITH CONSIDERABLE OUTBUILDINGS SET IN ABOUT 5.7 ACRES IN A WONDERFUL SEMI-RURAL LOCATION .............. Little Shellwood is an attractive early 20th century family home, occupying a delightful position and having far-reaching views over its own grounds and the surrounding countryside. Little Shellwood has been in the same family ownership for many years and is now offered to the market for the first time in 65 years, consisting of the main residence, which is now in need of some modernisation, a separate two-storey cottage and an excellent range of outbuildings - including several substantial barns. The property offers bright, spacious and versatile accommodation, as can be identified by the floorplan and briefly comprises; entrance hall, three receptions rooms and a fitted kitchen/ breakfast room. The current owners extended the property to the side in the early 1970s to provide a garden room, which enjoys a super outlook to the garden and flows directly onto the sun terrace. There is also an inner hall and cloakroom. To the first floor, the two principle bedrooms are located to the front of the house and are of good proportions, with the master bedroom enjoying an en-suite, whilst there is a further third bedroom, family bathroom and separate WC. To the second floor, there is an additional bedroom. Little Shellwood is approached by a five bar gate leading from Clayhill Road with a long driveway, which passes the house and tennis courts and culminates in extensive parking and turning. The gardens are a wonderful feature of the property, having been well-maintained over many years and offering a great degree of privacy and seclusion with mature trees and hedging and well-stocked borders. Situated a short distance from the house there is a two-storey detached cottage, which is presented in good order and offers excellent scope for either dependent relatives or the possibility to let out and create a useful income, as our clients have done over a number of years. The cottage has a fitted kitchen, sitting room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The second part of this building forms ground and first floor offices and a utility room. There is a wide array of outbuildings as can been seen from the floorplan, they briefly comprise a pole barn, long barn, ideal for the car enthusiasts, a substantial steel frame barn with a workshop to the rear, a detached office and a series of five single garages, which are now in rather poor condition. There is a paddock of about 3 acres to the south of the property within close proximity of the aforementioned pole barn - this could present an opportunity for redevelopment, subject to the usual planning consents.
