NO ONWARD CHAIN.

Introduction - Delightfully positioned close to the Welsh border, this spacious family home was created from the former Victorian stable block to Combe House. With substantial extensions it is now a comfortable house with well proportioned rooms including 3-4 reception rooms, kitchen / breakfast room, utility, four double bedrooms, 1 ensuite, 2 bathrooms and a games room with kitchen and shower (this could be used as a separate self contained annexe or would make an ideal roomy office space). It stands in particularly attractive, mature gardens and grounds divided into individual areas including a tennis court and swimming pool. There is a parcel of land that is in a private position away from the house that has the potential for a separate access into it allowing for a plot (subject to planning).

Property Description - Wapley House has a lovely light and airy ambience with numerous large picture widows starting with a porch which has a double glazed door with side panels and cloakroom with a two piece white suite. The spacious entrance hall had arched double doors and dual aspect windows (previous owners have used this as a dining room). A glazed bevelled edge door to the drawing room, which enjoys a stone fireplace with inset woodburner, ceiling rose, recessed arched display shelves and a picture window to the front, an arch and steps flow smoothly into the dining room ensuring these are excellent rooms for entertaining especially as they link via patio doors to the rear garden. The study has dual aspect windows, oak shelves and cupboard and a stud partition wall to the kitchen / dining room (and perhaps could be made into one room). The kitchen has cream units with Corian work surfaces, an induction hob, double oven and dual aspect windows. A useful utility adjoins that is fitted with a range of full height storage cupboards, space and plumbing for several appliances and a Belfast sink.

The games room is linked from the utility via a porch with PVCu doors to front and rear gardens and is ideally suited to be used as an annexe. This large square room is a former garage and has an electric fire, radiator, dual aspect windows and links to the conservatory, a three piece shower room (is conveniently located close to the outdoor pool) plus a kitchen with window to rear, cupboards and cooker. The conservatory has a radiator, French doors to the garden and is glazed to three aspects.

The landing has an oak and glass gallery and enjoys lovely views. The main bedroom has triple aspect windows all enjoying wonderful views plus a range of wardrobes and a four piece white ensuite bath and shower room. Bedroom 2 has a window to rear, a sink set in vanity unit and a range of fitted wardrobes. Two further bedrooms have lovely picture windows, and there is both a shower room and a separate family bathroom.

Double Garage And Carport - A timber constructed double garage measuring 5.99m x 5.40m with two sets of double doors and a pedestrian door to the rear. An adjoining car port measures 2.99m x 5.40m.

2.5 Acres Gardens And Grounds - The property has extensive beautifully landscaped gardens extending to 2.5 acres approached via an impressive private driveway edged with mature trees, shrubs and a wealth of bulbs. The garaging is on the left hand side just before the drive opens up in front of the house in a gravelled circle with an ornamental lawn in the centre. To the immediate front, side and rear of the property are the more formal garden areas including a patio area enclosed by the stone wall boundary. The outdoor heated swimming pool is flanked by a patio and is an excellent space for entertaining and alfresco dining. Additional garden areas include a children's play area, lawns, vegetable and fruit garden. The garden is beautifully maintained by the current owners who have planted a great number of specimen trees to include Quince, Forsythia, Laburnum, Flowering Cherry, Buddleia's and a whole range of other species.
