Ashdown enjoys a peaceful position bordering onto open countryside and offers a rare opportunity to acquire a quality detached house with potential for further enlargement, subject to obtaining the relevant planning consents. The house dates back to 1976 and a particular feature of the property are the large mature grounds which offer both privacy and protection and can only be fully appreciated on viewing. A glazed front door with matching side lights opens into the central reception hall with herringbone wood floor and oak staircase gently rising to the first floor galleried landing. The sitting room runs the width of the house with bay window overlooking the front garden and french doors overlooking and opening onto the rear terrace. The stone fireplace houses the wood burner and double doors open to reveal the dining room which in turn opens into the conservatory with delightful views across the rear garden. The kitchen / breakfast room boasts fitted base and eye level units with tiled floor and laminate work surfaces with inset double bowl sink. The two oven gas fired AGA has pride of place and other appliances include an integrated fridge and free standing dishwasher. Adjoining is the utility / boot room which in turn provides access to the study and the cloakroom lies off the hall. The master bedroom lies on the front of the house with built in wardrobes and dressing area along with en suite shower room. Four further double bedrooms lie on this floor, three with fitted wardrobes and all benefitting from the rural views. The family bathroom with oval corner bath and separate Myra shower cubicle lies at the end of the landing with airing cupboard adjoining and a loft hatch revels a retractable ladder providing access to large part boarded loft which could easily lend itself for conversion if required. OUTSIDE The front garden is mainly enclosed by mature laurel hedging with central tarmac drive offering extensive off road parking and access to the detached double garage with electric up and over door. To the rear of the garage are two outbuildings divided into four rooms with covered passage way and currently utilised as a gardener's WC, pool plant room, wood store and garden store. The rear garden can be accessed from either side of the house and running along the rear elevation is a paved seating terrace with stone steps leading up to the lawn and part tiled and rendered heated swimming pool with paved edging. The south facing rear garden is enclosed by mature hedgerows with lawn gently rising away from the house and offering access to the productive orchard with apple varieties including Lord Darby, Spartan and Bramley along with Victoria plum tree, pear tree and greengage. Beyond is a kitchen garden enclosed behind rabbit fencing with cultivated beds. Whilst the northern boundary of the garden is marked by mature hedgerow and close bordered fencing, the property owns the grass strip running on the other side which also is designated as a public footpath providing direct access onto a network of footpaths.
