SUMMARY
A rare opportunity to acquire a delightful Rothschild home set in the picturesque village of Mentmore. The property offers spacious and versatile accommodation and large gardens, ideal for the growing family.


DESCRIPTION
A very attractive and highly desirable three/four bedroom semi-detached property situated on Mentmore village green with lovely country views to both front and rear. The southerly facing gardens are an undoubted feature with a large raised terrace and steps down to a large fully enclosed private garden.

Accommodation 
Set over three floors, the accommodation is light and airy throughout and filled with the charm and character one expects from a Rothschild property. The current owners have significantly improved the property during their time here, with a superb extension to the rear creating a wonderful open plan kitchen/dining/family room with bi-folding doors which open straight onto a timber decked sun terrace, overlooking the garden. The family area provides sofa space to sit in front of the log burner and solid Oak flooring which continues through the dining area where there is ample space for a large family dining table under an atrium roof light. The kitchen is fitted with a range of units and granite work surfaces, a gas/electric range cooker and plenty of space for an American style fridge freezer and other appliances. A large bay window looks onto the rear garden with a charming window seat. At the front of the house is a cosy lounge with a cast iron Victorian fireplace and bay window. Upstairs on the first floor is a large landing area with a feature exposed brick wall and plenty of fitted wardrobes. A staircase rises to the attic room which offers ideal use as a study or spare bedroom with additional under eaves storage . There are three further good size bedrooms and a large family bath and shower room.

Gardens 
The front garden is mainly laid to lawn, with pretty flower beds, behind a privet hedge and the original brick pathway leading to the front door. A side gate provides access to the rear. The rear garden is certainly a feature of this property, offering something for everyone. The southerly aspect is ideal for sun worshippers, and those with ‘green fingers’ will be delighted by the variety of shrubs and plants, some of which are quite rare. A large timber sun terrace extends almost seamlessly from the kitchen/dining/family room through bi-folding doors and provides excellent entertaining space as it gently steps down to another paved patio area. A large lawn is bordered and enclosed by mature hedging with an old brick pathway which leads through a timber pergola, to a smaller hidden garden with an attractive circular brick sun terrace, ideal if you just want to get away from it all or for children’s ‘hide and seek’ games. There are timber sheds and a compost area along with apple and pear trees.
