Description

Wheelwrights is a Grade II Listed village house of immense charm and character, dating in part from the late 16th century with 20th century additions. Situated on the edge of the village, the property is well positioned off a private lane and enjoys beautiful gardens with views to the south over neighbouring farmland. English Heritage documents that Wheelwrights was purchased in 1937 by a Mr Hampton, who employed Blundon Shadbolt, a notable architect at the time, to renovate, extend and alter the house and that his ambitious and extraordinary designs 'resulted in a truly delightful and bewildering result.'

Points of note include; An abundance of exposed timbers and beams, some casement windows with leaded light panes and deep sills, wonderful inglenook fireplaces to the drawing and dining rooms, oak flooring and internal doors.
Three charming reception rooms comprise a most impressive double height drawing room of generous proportions with Minstrel's gallery, low level deep bay window to the south west affording a lovely garden outlook and fine inglenook fireplace with beehive canopy, a sitting room with study area and wood burning stove and a formal dining room which features a rendered inglenook fireplace with curved bressumer over.
The kitchen/breakfast room has terracotta floor tiles and is equipped with a comprehensive range of cupboards with tiled work surfaces. Appliances include an oil fired two oven Aga, electric single oven and four ring electric hob. There is space for a dishwasher.
Off the kitchen there is a north east facing pantry with ample shelving and a boot room with access to a WC, bin store and stairs to the cellar.
A utility room provides space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge/freezer.
A staircase leads from the drawing room to a landing, off which lies the principal bedroom, enjoying lovely views and benefiting from a good range of fitted cupboards and a separate bathroom.
The balance of the first floor is approached via a separate turned staircase which leads to a galleried landing overlooking the drawing room and a Minstrel' gallery which is currently used as a study.
Two further bedrooms with pretty fireplaces are served by a bathroom with roll top bath and separate WC. A further staircase leads to the attic floor where attractive bedroom 4 enjoys a lovely outlook.
There is a further bathroom fitted with white sanitary ware. Wheelwrights is approached via a five bar gate, a driveway continues around the back of the garage building and culminates in a parking area to the front of the house.
The secluded gardens are a lovely feature of the property, with a southerly facing loggia enhanced with beautiful wisteria, and lawns planted with a variety of shrubs, together with a rose garden and pretty summerhouse. The lawns continue round to the west of the house to a former vegetable garden. Outbuildings comprise an old pump house, a detached double garage with adjoining workshop and an oil tank store.
