Full description


A handsome period home of red brick elevations beneath a pantile roof with kneelered gables, Ivy House offers extensive 3 storey accommodation extending to almost 3200 ft, and is situated in the highly desirable conservation village of Bulcote.
Architecturally the property has a great deal to offer, from dogtooth gables and pretty sash windows flanked by painted shutters, to heavily beamed ceilings, and a grand inglenook fireplace in the lounge. Historically, the property is believed to date back to at least the early 1700s, with subsequent extensions to the rear in Victorian times.
The accommodation is well proportioned and offers buyers a versatile and flexible layout that will no doubt appeal to families, with plenty of space to the ground floor and 5 good sized bedrooms arranged over the 1st and 2nd floors. To the ground floor is the lounge, dining room, and sitting room, a spacious family sized kitchen, fitted with a range of bespoke pine units with butchers block work tops, and stable door to the secret courtyard garden outside. The breakfast room sits adjacent to the kitchen and has glazed French doors providing a gorgeous vista over the rear garden, and also leads to a useful cloakroom with storage, a ground floor WC, and a further room with plenty of storage, a versatile space which has worked well for the current owners as a utility room, a work room, or a family room.
The 5 bedrooms include the master bedroom with a large en-suite bathroom fitted with a traditional style suite with slipper bath, whilst the other 4 bedrooms share the main family bathroom with both bath and separate shower cubicle. Also found on the 1st floor is a particularly large room extending to approximately 23 x 16, used by the current owners as a family games room but suiting a whole range of possible uses from home work space, to further bedrooms.
The gardens are of particular note, extending to approximately 0.41 acres and offering a high level of privacy, in part due to a number of majestic and mature trees which provide a high level of screening. A sweeping driveway opens out into a wide parking area for numerous cars, extensive lawns, and a bright and colourful herbaceous border. With access from the kitchen only, there is a 'secret' courtyard garden with water feature. A two storey brick and pantile stable block is currently used for storage with open fronted garaging to the side, but offers great potential for development*
