The exact age of Abbeywood House is unknown, but the original farmhouse probably dates back several hundred years. The house has in recent years been cleverly extended and restored and now provides a characterful and comfortable home with particularly good reception space. The entrance hall with cloaks cupboard leads into a dining room being well proportioned and having ceiling cornice and a cut stone period style mantel piece and fitted with Clearview wood burning stove. A door from the dining room goes through into the garden room, which has recessed cupboards and display shelves and double doors leading out into the garden. A further door leads into the drawing room, which is light having two windows, a fireplace and corniced ceiling. A spacious study lies beyond with excellent cupboards and bookshelves or could provide a further bedroom having an en suite shower room and a door out into the garden. The kitchen provides a focal point of the house, being well fitted with range of shaker style bespoke cupboards with black granite work surfaces and centred round a black four oven oil fired AGA with high mantelpiece surround. There is a high vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers, providing a good sense of space, windows enjoying lovely outlooks over the gardens and French doors leading out onto the terrace. There is a rear hall with utility room with good cupboards and a cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin. An attractive staircase leads to a double landing with handrails and balustrade leading to the principal bedroom, being particularly light, having two windows facing west with lovely views, good range of cupboards providing good hanging space and shelves and door through to a particularly spacious en suite bathroom with bath, shower and twin pedestal wash hand basins with recessed mirror fronted shelved cupboards over. There are three further bedrooms, including a single and two doubles and a family bathroom.
