A fine detached Grade II listed Georgian family home with its principle facade being added at around 1810, providing a substantial and handsome property set in its delightful and mature gardens. The main door leads into a pretty glass roofed entrance vestibule with light flooding onto the mosaic tile floor. A welcoming reception hall provides access to the principal rooms on the ground floor and a staircase leads to the first floor accommodation. Immediately apparent are the grand proportions, period detailing, and light spaces. Although the property works tremendously well as one flowing family house, the present owners have used it as two parts, which works
equally well. Indeed, prior to the present owners’ occupation, the property was a successful guest house. The drawing room has a jet master fireplace framed either side by arched recesses with shelving and low level cupboards. A large bay
window with window seats over looks the garden and it’s french windows lead out to the gardens at the side of the property. Across the hall, the elegant dining room boasts an open fireplace and a double aspect with a large bay window, a hidden door leads through to the kitchen. Across the heart of the house is the large kitchen/breakfast/family room. The kitchen has a gas fired, four oven Aga, a built-in Neff microwave oven, grill and 2 gas rings and opens through to a more informal dining area and sitting room, again with an open fireplace
creating a great family area measuring 46 feet 9 inches in length. The sitting room has a stable door leading out to the garden into a paved terrace and outdoor entertaining area, facing south and opening onto the gardens. Beyond the sitting room, a private and quiet room provides a study with built in book shelves. At the rear of the property are store rooms, walk in larder, utility and laundry room, as well as doors to the gardens at the rear and access to the self contained guest annexe, currently known as The Folly; which has a good double bedroom and en suite bathroom. The first floor has a large landing area providing access to three principle bedrooms, two having en suite facilities. Currently, there is also a kitchen on this floor, which was previously a bathroom, and
could easily be reverted to such as all the plumbing is in place for this. A doorway leads through to a further three bedrooms and a bathroom, a staircase leads up to the second floor, where there are two more double bedrooms and a shower room. The gardens are a particular feature of the property. Numerous trees surround the grounds to include; Yew Trees, a vintage Mulberry Tree,
Copper Beech, Persian Iron Wood, Magnolias, Judas Tree and a most beautiful red Acer crowns the centre of the garden, which when the sun catches it in the late afternoon glows a magnificent deep red. The gardens surround the property, predominately to the front, sides and either side of the gravel driveway that leads to the front gates. A tennis court is positioned behind the house, over looking the gardens and having a separate access.
