Upton House is an imposing 7 bedroom detached Victorian residence dating from 1885 constructed of brick elevations surmounted by a twin gabled rosemary tiled roof. Believed to have been commissioned by a silk merchant, the property is lavishly appointed and exudes period charm and character throughout.

The accommodation extends to approximately 4,320 Sq Ft and retains a wealth of original features having been sympathetically refurbished by the current owners. Period features such as deep skirting's and architraves, ornate cornicing and ceiling mouldings, panelled doors, sash windows, beautiful fireplaces and Victorian tiling now seamlessly combine with modern convenience.

The versatile accommodation has been extended in recent years to provide a spacious open plan dining kitchen; a layout which is now perfectly suited for modern family living, entertaining on a grand scale or running a bed and breakfast business.

To the ground floor there is a magnificent reception hall which leads to the three generously proportioned formal reception rooms. The morning room links the downstairs w.c., demi cellar and the modern dining kitchen to the rest of the house, allowing this part of the property to benefit from a degree of separation if required. A large utility/laundry room, downstairs shower room and utility room are accessed off the kitchen and complete the ground floor accommodation.

To the first floor there is an impressive galleried landing, 4 double bedrooms, a modern shower room, main bathroom and separate w.c., both with Victorian tiling. To the second floor there are a further 3 bedrooms, an en suite shower room, shared bathroom and a linen/storage cupboard.

An 'in and out' driveway provides extensive off road parking and leads to the detached 368 Sq Ft double garage. The property occupies a generous 0.7 acre plot which enjoys a southerly aspect to the rear. A large patio area adjoins the rear of the property and surrounds the heated outdoor swimming pool. The mature rear gardens benefit from a good degree of seclusion and are mainly laid to lawn.
