Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Anneth Lowen is a Grade II Listed character property originally dating back we understand to the 1700's. Back in the mid-19th century it was substantially extended and today comprises of a large village residence which offers highly flexible elegant accommodation of four bedrooms. Over the 28 years or so it has been in the same ownership, with the property having been lovingly cared for by being re-roofed and updated including the installation of a luxury kitchen and en-suite to the master bedroom. Externally, the property has a delightful south facing enclosed level front garden, a rear courtyard with a double detached garage with storage above and an elevated rear lawned garden. Polyphant is a most attractive village which enjoys convenient access to the A30 dual carriageway and we have no hesitation in recommending this property to the discerning purchaser who wishes to live in comfort and beautiful surroundings.

INTERIOR
Beyond the attractive stone and Victorian facade lies the spacious accommodation which is served by an open porch. This provides access to the imposing entrance hallway with original tiled floor and a most impressive wide sweeping staircase and balustrade which ascends to the first floor. The two main reception rooms consist of the lounge which is often washed with sunlight, having a picture rail, ceiling rose and an original marble fire surround. Within the fire surround is a reclaimed tiled inset adding to the period splendour of the focal point. Either side of the chimney breast are extensive fitted bookcases and cupboards. The formal dining room also has a marble fire surround with reclaimed tiled inset and room for a large table and in the corner a useful study area. Like the lounge a pleasant aspect over the south facing front garden can be enjoyed and this room really comes into its own at Christmas and occasions of large family gatherings. Moving through to the older part of the property which we understand dates back to the mid 1700's is the farmhouse style kitchen. This lovely substantial room has three window openings to the rear. The kitchen area is equipped with a luxury range of units encompassing both wall, glass display cabinets and cream base units with inset a Belfast sink with mixer taps over. There are polished solid worksurfaces with a drainer built within and further display recess shelving. One of the main feature points of the room is the former fireplace which incorporates a wooden lintel with clome oven recess and inset at present a free standing Range style oven with gas hob which may be available by separate negotiation. Included in the sale there is an extractor fan with lighting. The room has rustic slate flooring, exposed beams and inset modern downlighting. The dining area has a door accessing the utility room which has both a stable door leading out to the rear courtyard and door into the useful ground floor shower room which has a mains shower within a double cubicle and is fully tiled.

On the first floor the elegant landing is a place to sit and admire the pleasant aspect over the historic village green. The front section of the house houses the two largest bedrooms including the master bedroom suite which has an en-suite shower room/WC which was added some yearsago. There is also a double wardrobe and a further attractive fire surround. Bedroom two which also enjoys the south facing aspect, again has a feature fire surround and is a large double bedroom. The older rear section of the first floor consists of a further two double bedrooms, both of which have feature fireplaces of original Polyphant stone. Between both rooms is the family bathroom/WC which has a matching three piece suite and is fully tiled.

Anneth Lowen has many modern comforts including oil fired central heating with at the rear the external windows being sealed unit double glazed. The property flows very well and it is clear to see how it would attract a variety of purchasers from large families to those perhaps looking to accommodate extended family at regular intervals.

EXTERIOR
The front of Anneth Lowen is accessed via a pedestrian gate which opens into the level south facing front gardens which are a real feature. There is a block paved seating area with a centralised path lined with lavender. There is a pleasant outlook on to the village green and a useful shed designed to fit the hot tub. A further attractive thatched covered seating area which faces due west is the perfect place to capture the sunshine at the end of a long summer's day. Access can be gained around to both sides of the property with the rear courtyard having vehicular access via double gates and again is blocked paved. The detached garage is a substantial building with two separate bays with both concertina and traditional double opening doors. The second garage bay has a workshop area at the rear and has power and light and access at the back. On the first floor accessed from the rear is a useful storage room above. Adjacent to the garage is an attractive wood store which is positioned in front of the secluded oil tank. The gardens at the rear are partly elevated by a few stone steps which are flanked by colourful shrubs, bushes and perennials. The garden is predominately laid to lawn with many mature shrubs, bushes and perennials.

There is a centralised pond, useful garden shed and room for a large summerhouse. For the keen gardener an area will be found, which has previously been used to grow fine produce, making the most of the good quality enriched soil. Immediately around the outside of the residence is outside lighting and a water tap.
