Architecturally-designed, Triangle Wood was built in 1933 in the Arts and Crafts butterfly style. The secluded woodland setting in about 33 acres provides first class privacy, yet excellent facilities are within easy reach. The main house provides good family accommodation with the flexibility of further accommodation in the two cottages.
Entering the main house through the circular entrance hall, the ground floor includes a sitting room, garden room, kitchen/breakfast room, dining room and utility room. Of particular note is the open red-brick fireplace in the sitting room; the triple aspect garden room and the corner fireplace with wood-burning stove in the dining room which also has an oak floor.
The irregular-shaped kitchen/breakfast room includes the original cast-iron cooking range as well as a built-in oven, ceramic hob and a range of kitchen units. The rear hall provides useful access to the utility room.
