Accommodation

This imposing period family home has tremendous appeal, offering wonderfully spacious character accommodation with expansive gardens at the rear approaching nearly 0.75 acres, together with ancillary buildings that offer great annexe potential. This successful conversion has been carried out by our clients who have created a truly fabulous home; good use of light and space has retained its sense of volume and openness and great attention has being paid to sourcing the best materials and high-specificiation fittings. The property is principally accessed from the rear elevation with a large gravelled driveway sweeping behind the house. A spacious reception hallway provides access to all ground floor accommodation and boasts a wealth of character with exposed timber beams, flagstone flooring and oak staircase ascending to the galleried landing whilst still enjoying the modern benefits of underfloor heating throughout.

Accommodation Continued

A wonderful central sitting room features a wide inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove mounted on a flagstone hearth and original bread oven to one side. Doorways at each end lead to a well proportioned study, also usable as a secondary entrance hallway with door to the front elevation. An impressive kitchen/family room is a true focal point for the property, having been fitted with an attractive handmade kitchen with oak worktops over and incorporating space for a central family sized table. This room would make a great entertaining space, also having doors opening to the patio area, overlooking the garden. The substantial ground floor accommodation is completed by a walk-in larder, traditional white suite cloakroom and utility room. From the long first floor landing there is access to all bedrooms and family bathroom. The bathroom has been fitted with a traditional white suite including freestanding roll edge bath. All bedrooms are considered large double rooms, three having adjoining en-suite bathrooms and the two largest enjoying high vaulted ceilings with some exposed timbers.

Outbuildings

A number of stone built outbuildings are a particular selling point for the property, currently separated as a garden store, workshop, potting shed and large studio. The studio is complete with power and lighting and is currently utilised by our client as a gym/playroom. This offers great potential to run a business from home or the possibility of conversion when coupled with the adjoining outbuildings.

Garden

The property sits within a superb sized plot of c0.75 acres, taking in sun throughout the day and consisting mostly of expansive lawned garden and a large paved patio extending from the rear elevation. Mature trees surrounding the perimeter of the property giving great seclusion from neighbours. A spacious gravelled driveway is accessed from the side of the house and sweeps behind the property, providing parking for multiple vehicles and access to an open fronted car port.
