Meadow House is a beautiful Georgian house with a most attractive Victorian addition, constructed of brick under a tiled roof to the front and slate roof to the back.
Internally the property has been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard with many fine original features which have been retained and enhanced such as high ceilings, moulded covings, fabulous new double glazed sash windows with brass ironmongery, wrought iron latches to the doors, a secret door, wooden floorboards and two truly magnificent fireplaces.
The entrance porch opens into the spacious and
welcoming hall with a wide winding staircase to the upper floors. The two reception rooms are beautifully proportioned: the drawing room features an open fireplace with marble hearth, carved wooden surround and mantle whilst the sitting room has a large inglenook fireplace with an oak beam and slate hearth.
The oak framed orangery is absolutely stunning with floor to ceiling windows to one side and doors leading to the rear patio. Currently the orangery is divided into two rooms: study and dining room, however these could be combined to create one large entertaining area. The floor is laid with Travertine tiles and has the benefit of under floor heating.
A long hallway links the orangery with the kitchen and off of this is the utility room with its integrated washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge freezer. The secret door leads from a store cupboard to the sitting room.
The beautifully appointed kitchen/ breakfast room has an extensive range of hand-painted cupboards including display units, oil fired four oven Aga, ceramic double sink and an island unit incorporating a wine cooler. A door and steps lead down to the useful basement/playroom which benefits from an external window.
On the first landing there are two delightful bedrooms overlooking the rear garden and a bathroom. Another set of stairs lead to the master bedroom which has a dressing room
and ensuite bathroom, a further bedroom with an ensuite shower room.
Continue up the wide staircase to two further bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite bathroom. There are plentiful eaves storage cupboards on the landing and in one of the bedrooms.
