Tenure: Freehold

A most impressive Victorian home of great style and character with delightful gardens.
1 Oaklands forms the western part of this fine and imposing late 19th Century country house which has been converted into two large dwellings. The property is offered for sale in excellent decorative order and there are many period features evident throughout, with some original doors, windows and traditional fireplaces including the wonderful open fire in the drawing room. The accommodation is most impressive being arranged over three floors with a general sense of space, style and excellent proportions emphasised by the impressive high ceilings so typical of the classic Victorian house. Some of the noteworthy highlights of the accommodation include an inviting reception hall with wood strip flooring and fireplace. The drawing room is a magnificent room of great proportions and a substantial bay window and lovely open fireplace. The dining room on the western side of the house is equally impressive being a very bright and open room with a wood-burning stove and patio doors directly out to the garden. There is potential to create a larger kitchen/family room subject to the usual planning consents. The master bedroom on the first floor has a recently refitted en-suite shower room - the proportion of the room is excellent with a fine substantial bay window that gives a superb outlook over the gardens. The bathroom is luxuriously appointed with a four-piece suite having also been refitted in recent years, and enjoys underfloor heating.

Outside, the grounds are a prime feature of the property having been well kept over many years providing a high degree of seclusion. The gardens are divided into two by a post and rail fence with the initial section nearest the property having a pebble driveway leading to the double garage. The remainder is laid to lawn with established shrubs and two enticing and comfortable seating areas. The second part of the garden extends to the west with numerous specimen trees and is predominantly laid to lawn based around a natural pond. In all the grounds extend to about 1.33 acres.
