Little Coombe is a most distinguished and elegant property dating from the 1920ís, of brick construction with half-timbered upper elevations under a tiled roof with lead light windows throughout. It provides excellent family accommodation.

Many of the elegant period features have been retained and in 1975 when bought by the present vendorsí family the house was the subject of a comprehensive refurbishment programme with no expense spared including an abundant use of very fine oak joinery. It is in effect a time warp of the era with magnificent examples of pink and avocado bathrooms and a sublime melamine kitchen. The sitting room features a concealed bar with a concertinaed door which rotates into the room. The only alteration since 1975 is a most attractive Peter Edmondson hard wood conservatory with fully fitted blinds and two electric fans. The property has however been well maintained.

Of particular merit is the welcoming reception hall featuring an elegant staircase with all rooms leading off. The drawing room benefits from a most attractive inglenook style fireplace with brick hearth and display niches. In addition is a dining room, sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room and rear hall with various domestic offices and storerooms including a sauna.

On the first floor there are five large bedrooms all with a variety of fitted cupboards reminiscent of the 1970ís and a dressing room/ 6th bedroom.

Under the drawing room is a blocked off cellar and there is a very large attic.

The property now provides a wonderful opportunity for total refurbishment and possible enlargement subject to the usual consents.

EPC rating 'D'
