Full description

Holywell House is the most imposing, grand and handsome house with its bold features and enchanting fairy tale turrets to the front façade. The accommodation is extensive and flexible and besides making a wonderful family house with its 5/6 bedrooms, it could also be a B&B or with the necessary Planning, converted into 4 large flats. It has an adjoining but separately accessed one-bedroom annexe which currently is rented to provide an income. The gardens of c. 0.6 acre are a true delight and the property is well placed to access the county and beyond.

Hallway  
One of the most striking aspects of the property is its handsome wide hallway that runs from the front door to the rear lobby with the rooms radiating off it. It has many period features - cornicing, a dado rail and ornate archway and the porch, built in 1911 has the original stain glass windows of foliage and a beautiful fanlight. Similarly, the rear lobby has part stained glass doors and steps lead to the side of the property near the garage and close to the annexe. A double door to the front opens onto a raised paved area with steps down to the magnificent formal gardens.

Sitting Room

Dining Room  
18' 4'' x 13' 6'' (5.58m x 4.11m)
The dining room overlooks the formal gardens to the front of the property and is conveniently placed adjacent to the kitchen and as such could be amalgamated to form a large kitchen/dining room with lovely views from the large triple bay window. A wonderfully carved wooden fire surround forms a focal point to the room.

Small Sitting Room/Downstairs Bedroom  
13' 9'' max x 13' 3'' (4.19m x 4.04m)

This could be reinstated and the bathroom converted to a cloakroom that would be accessed off the hallway. The views from here are also lovely overlooking the area of formal lawn. There are extensive fitted cupboards and electrically operated blinds.

Ensuite Bathroom/Cloakroom  
As the small sitting room is currently being used as a bedroom, this opens onto a beautifully fitted downstairs bathroom. This could be sealed and a separate access reopened from the hallway to provide downstairs cloakroom facilities.

Opening from the hallway is a downstairs cloakroom/wet room with tiled floor and walls, WC, washbasin inset in a vanity unit, shower, curtain rail and heated towel rail.
