Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A substantial detached family residence set within c.3 acres of beautiful gardens in a select small community on the fringes of this former estate, offering versatile spacious accommodation over two floors with the potential for dual family occupation or a self-contained annexe cottage.

The exact date of build is unknown but there are many original features such as a feature inglenook fireplace, exposed timbers and the linen fold front door rumoured to have come from Westminster Abbey. Formerly part of the Wonham Estate, the property is nestled on the fringes of this quiet community, offering fantastic privacy and beautiful valley views.

The accommodation is presented over two floors with many unique features. A spacious reception hall with circular stone pillars welcomes you into the older part of the property with access to the Sitting Room, Drawing room and Sun Room, from which to enjoy the valley views. The formal Sitting/Dining room was an addition built, we believe, in the 1980's and is a lovely light and airy room with Minster stone fireplace and French doors leading to the front terrace.

The gardens are of particular note with some rare trees such as American Red Oak and Atlantic Cedar. A private drive leads from the lane with large parking area and access to the garage and car port. The remaining garden is predominantly laid to lawn with a lightly planted woodland area giving shade for those hot summer months with adjacent well stocked beds incorporating numerous plants and shrubs, providing a haven for butterflies and bees.
