Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A wonderful village property dating from circa 1750 set in beautifully landscaped gardens extending to approximately 0.85 acres.
Much of the period character has been preserved, cleverly combined with sophisticated contemporary styling. There is an elegant annexe created by the conversion of an adjoining barn plus a one-bedroom apartment. There is considerable flexibility as to how the space is used as the annexe and apartment connect directly to the main house, making it perfect for multi generation living or for staff/rental unit.
The sitting room located at the front of the house is elegant and bright. The lovely open fireplace with marble surround is the focal point of the room. There is built in book shelving and a large sash window overlooks the front garden and floods the room with light.
The conservatory is a beautiful room which does now require renovation. There are French doors opening onto the garden and double glass panelled doors that flow through to the drawing room.
The drawing room is unique in character with a vaulted ceiling and exposed A frame roof timbers. There is a fireplace housing a wood burning stove and the dual aspect combined with the glass panelled double doors makes the space light and bright.
The orangery has a wood effect floor and a door opens out to the garden and courtyard. There is a lovely glass topped well feature adding yet further character and underfloor heating. There is a door to the large utility room and another to an inner hallway, boot room and guest cloak room, WC.
The kitchen is fitted with a range of bespoke painted base and wall units with Corian work surfaces and up-stands incorporating a Belfast sink. There are a range of Miele integrated appliances. There is a large breakfast island providing additional work space and storage under. The kitchen has the benefit of a good sized, walk-in pantry which further leads down to the cellar.
Completing the ground floor accommodation is the study/home office located at the front of the house.
The master bedroom suite is entered from the landing area into one of its two dressing rooms. A door leads to the second and larger, of the two dressing rooms with an extensive range of fitted wardrobes and the space flows on to the luxurious en suite bathroom. There is a roll top, claw foot bath, a vanity unit with Corian counter top set with double wash hand basins and a separate shower.
The self-contained apartment consists of a living room with a well fitted kitchenette with oven, a washer/dryer and an electric hob. The double bedroom has the benefit of an en suite shower room. It has its own entrance so could be used for staff accommodation or as a rental unit.
A stylish annexe has been created by the present owners for a family member and the accommodation consists of an entrance hall, kitchen, sitting room, WC, bedroom and en suite shower room.
The drive leads into a courtyard with parking for several vehicles. There is a double garage and a workshop that could be converted into a gym subject to the appropriate local authority consents.
There are mature gardens to three sides of the house. To the front there are sweeping lawns with flower and herbaceous borders running along the garden wall and providing year around colour and interest. An archway leads to a more sheltered and private walled garden, where there are some lovely trees and heavily stocked flower borders.
Adjoining the vegetable garden is a more formal area with manicured privet bushes and the heated outdoor swimming pool in a sheltered area adjoining the house. The pool is heated by an air source heat pump for maximum efficiency. The pool can also be heated by an oil fired boiler.
