Kennet House is an individual house built in 1872 in the Gothic style and still retains many of its period features.
The entrance hall is beautifully light and airy off which is the sitting room which has an impressive fireplace and chimney breast, a south-facing balcony and links round in an L-shape to a study area. A stone staircase leads down to the kitchen/dining room which has been converted by the current owners from the original cellar and incorporates a number of hand made, free standing kitchen units as well as a two oven Aga and a central island with hob. Through an arch is a dining area with a Clearview wood burning stove. There are stone flag floors throughout the lower level, a large storage cupboard and a shower room. The back door leads out to the garden.
A broad wooden staircase leads up to the first floor where there are three bedrooms and a good sized bathroom. A further staircase leads up to the tower room previously used as a home office which has dramatic views to all points of the compass and over the surrounding countryside.
The south-facing garden at Kennet House is spectacular with many fine views and a labyrinth of paths intertwining through the various split level terraces which are overflowing with a wonderful array of specimen plants and shrubs. There are numerous hidden terraces, a pond and a summer house. The garden is totally private and a true passion of the owner who has invested so much time creating a tranquil paradise.
To the front of the operty there is a gravelled drive with off-road prking and established borders.
The house and garden are a fascinating combination of Gothic originality with thoroughly usable, contemporary living space.
Adjacent to the back door a store room has been converted to a utility and store room. There is a spiral staircase in the folly tower which leads up to the street and a further store room or potting shed. Beyond the store room is a summer house with shutters.
