About this property
A substantial, four-bedroom, rural home with an edge of village location, sitting on a plot in excess of one-acre with swimming pool, tennis court and countryside views.
Enter the property via a large porch, with ample coat hanging & storage space, leading into a large entrance hall providing a versatile open plan space, with one of the rear sections currently being used as a study area. There is a WC and a cloakroom off, doors to the ground floor accommodation and an eye-catching T-shaped staircase.
The breakfast kitchen has a wonderful vaulted ceiling with exposed wooden trusses and looks out onto a rear walled garden through two bow windows with a stable door opening out onto the patio. There is a central island, a great range of floor standing and wall mounted units, a double Belfast sink with mixer tap, integrated dishwasher, an oil-fired AGA, electric oven with four ring gas hob and extractor over and a Smeg tall fridge freezer. There is also a mezzanine gallery located over the kitchen offering space for a study or seating area.
The substantial formal sitting room has three large windows providing plenty of light and floor to ceiling glazed French doors opening out to the rear walled garden. There are exposed beams to the ceiling, a multi fuel burning stove and views out to the main garden. There is a second reception room of a generous size that is currently being used as a study but could be used as a sitting room or playroom. This room, also with windows on two sides is very light with built in cabinetry providing ample storage.
The ground floor is completed by a useful pantry with ample built in storage and a separate utility/boot room housing the oil-fired central heating boiler, providing space for white goods, a secondary sink and a door out to the side.
The wooden staircase rises and splits left and right up to the first-floor galleried landing giving a real sense of occasion with windows looking out over the garden.
The first-floor accommodation comprises four double bedrooms, the two largest bedrooms sitting to the front of the property enjoying views over the garden and countryside beyond. The two marginally smaller bedrooms sit to the rear of the property also with views over the garden. Bedroom three provides the access to the mezzanine level looking over the kitchen and all four bedrooms are served by both a family bathroom and a separate shower room with a large walk-in shower.
To the outside the property is approached via a large circular, gravelled driveway providing ample parking and leading to a large hardstanding area with further parking in front of the double garage and workshop. The double garage and workshop space have the foundations to be converted into an office/granny annexe etc. There is an expansive garden mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and plantings sitting to the south and west of the property, along with a walled garden with a patio adjacent to the Living kitchen, and a fenced vegetable patch with a greenhouse. The property also benefits from a newly re-surfaced tennis court and a heated swimming pool.
This fantastic family home sits in its own private grounds offering generous accommodation and is a property that must be viewed to be appreciated.
