The property forms a stylish and spacious family house with well-proportioned rooms with good ceiling heights that make for light and elegant rooms. This is a fabulous example of a property of this age. There is a two-storey turret to the rear of the property which extends up from the family room to the main bedroom. __________ GROUND FLOOR The property can be accessed informally from the front through an enclosed porch/boot room which leads through to kitchen/dining room, or via the formal hall entrance leading to a spacious entrance hall, with staircase rising to the first floor. To the right of the entrance hall there is a long narrow cloakroom with wash hand basin and door opening into a WC. The sitting room is a grand and sophisticated living space with ornate cornicing and fine ceiling rose. This room features a fireplace with wood burning stove and enjoys an outlook across the rear terrace with fabulous views over the formal garden beyond. A set of French doors open out to the adjoining garden room, which in turn benefits from two sets of French doors opening out to the southwest facing terrace. There is also access to the study from the garden room. An inner hallway provides access to the family room and the kitchen/dining room which offers double aspect views with the addition of 2 large skylight windows. Furthermore, there is a butler sink, gas range cooker, pantry, and an integrated fridge-freezer, microwave, and dishwasher. The substantial kitchen features bespoke and hand painted cabinetry with granite work surfaces. The central island is a focal point, incorporating a breakfast bar, and additional undermounted cabinets under an oak worktop. Double doors open through to the family room. The notable focal point in this room is the glazed turret, which affords wonderful views over the garden. The spacious utility room features built-in cabinets, butler sink and space for freestanding appliances. A door leads out to the southwest terrace to the rear of the property. The boiler room and a separate WC adjoin the utility room and there is a large walk-in storeroom with door opening out to the rear terrace. __________ FIRST FLOOR The light and spacious first floor landing offers access to the boarded loft space via retractable ladder. The main bedroom suite features a glazed turret overlooking the rear garden.
