An early Edwardian five double bedroom detached property in a private position, in landscaped gardens and paddocks of approximately 2.1 acres.
The property has been sympathetically refurbished and extended and has versatile accommodation over two floors as well as a large attic. The reception hall leads to three principal reception rooms. The kitchen/breakfast room is the hub of the house, and there is a utility room, a shower room and a garden room which could be used as a study. A staircase from this area leads to Bedroom five. This bedroom, with the garden room, utility room and shower room could be adapted into a self-contained annexe/guest wing. There are four double bedrooms off the main landing. The master bedroom has an en suite shower room and there is a family bathroom. The gated gravel driveway provides parking and access to the oak framed car port and garage which has featherboard elevations under a pitched slate roof. The car port has parking for two cars and the single garage has twin timber doors and power connected.
The drawing room has a marble fireplace with an open grate and a tiled surround and hearth, and a custom-built dresser style unit with bookshelves. The dining room has a traditional fireplace housing a log burning stove. Both rooms have moulded covings and picture rails. The family room has a quarry tiled floor, a fireplace recess housing a log burning stove, and a range of original built-in cupboards with stripped doors.
Kitchen/Breakfast Room and Garden Room
The kitchen/breakfast room has a bespoke range of oak Shaker style units, including a central island unit, with granite work surfaces. Appliances include a dishwasher and an extractor hood, and there is space for a range cooker and a fridge/freezer. Travertine flooring continues into a breakfast area which has bi-fold doors to the side. The garden room has a part vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers, a range of bespoke cupboards, oak flooring and glazed doors to the garden.
At the front and side of the house there are well maintained lawn areas with well stocked borders and mature trees. At the rear is a paved courtyard, lawned areas, a pergola with climbing bushes, a variety of mature trees and an ornamental pond. There is a recently constructed timber garden machinery store and a vegetable garden with a greenhouse and compost area. Twin five bar gates lead to the paddock which is fully enclosed by post and wire fencing.
