A fascinating property dating back to 1785 but predominantly Victorian with the added benefit of a coach house and large, walled gardens. Set in a total plot of c.0.8 acres the property is neither Listed nor in a Conservation area and offers huge potential. The large rooms and period features are redolent of a different era: At one time the property was owned by the Duchy of Cornwall and occupied by its agent and the Duke of Windsor, then the Prince of Wales, is said to have stayed here when visiting his estates locally. There are many fascinating features throughout the property and historically there has been planning permission to erect a detached house within the grounds although this has since lapsed.

Accommodation
The solid wood front door with attractive stained glass to either side opens into an impressive entrance hall with a gracious staircase to the first floor and an original tiled floor. To the left is a double aspect drawing room with a large bay window with built in seat and an open fire with attractive cornicing. From the hall there is a former butler's pantry which has been used more recently as an office and access into a dining room with a large mullioned window overlooking the rear garden and a large walk-in cupboard. Adjacent is a the dining kitchen with a range of hand-made wooden wall and base units with a large window overlooking the garden. An oil fired Stanley range cooker also provides central heating and hot water. There is plenty of room for a table and chairs in this room and a window overlooks the rear garden. Off the kitchen is a cloakroom and door into the garden, a pantry and a utility area with plumbing for washing machine and a door into the inner courtyard. On the first floor there is an impressive landing with an amazing light well over the stairs with stained glass. Further stairs lead to the attic and there is a linen cupboard. Off the landing there are three double bedrooms (two of which have a double aspect and the principal bedroom retains an open fireplace). There are also a cloakroom and a bathroom with a separate shower on this floor. On the top floor there is a good sized landing/study area leading into an attic bedroom with double aspect.

Outside
The property is approached via a driveway (shared with one other property) which leads to a private area of hardstanding with access to a wooden garage. There is a densely planted area of shrubbery to the front. Off the driveway is a gate leading into a courtyard with the detached, two storey Coach House and a fuel/garden store. This area would easily split away from the main house and garden (subject to the necessary permission). To the rear of the property there is a south-facing garden.
