THE PROPERTY

Whilst a date plaque on the gated entrance has an inscription of 1796, records suggest the age of the present house dates from the early Nineteenth Century. Being of classical Georgian design with symmetrical facade this beautiful old house has been meticulously modernised and extended over the last decade and now offers immaculately decorated accommodation with well-chosen Farrow and Ball paint colours. Fine period detail has been preserved and embellished, typical of its age, including the elegant turning staircase in the main hall and a well-proportioned drawing room with floor to ceiling sash windows with shutters, a handsome cut Portland stone fireplace with a wood burning stove and deep ceiling cornice. The dining room is of similar size, also having a stone fireplace with open grate, ceiling cornice and identical floor to ceiling windows enjoying lovely southerly outlooks over the garden. There is a good sized family snug with wood burning stove and a study. The beautiful fitted kitchen with Charles Rennie Makintosh cabinets, all set upon a limestone floor and has bi-fold doors which lead out onto the walled terraced garden. The turning staircase leads to the first floor landing with a stained glass skylight and leads to the principal bedroom with an original fireplace, cupboards and en suite bathroom; a guest bedroom with a good range of fitted cupboards and double aspect and a central nursery / bedroom with Juliet balcony. The family bathroom is particularly spacious and well fitted with Travertine floor, bath and a shower. There are two further bedrooms found to the rear of the property off a higher landing complete with shower room.
