The Property

A two bedroom detached home with large pool room sitting upon a generous garden plot of approximately a quarter of an acre (estimated), to the periphery of the popular village of Elm.
Believed to be constructed in the 18th century, and originally two former lock keepers cottages – now combined into one dwelling, this secluded home concealed on all sides behind a tall border of trees and hedging, commands a high level of privacy. A tall pair of wrought iron gates mark the boundary for the property, and open to reveal a gravelled driveway sweeping to the front of the house.
Inside and the accommodation is arranged over two levels, and briefly comprises entrance hall with utility area, fitted kitchen, dining room with working fire place, an impressively sized sitting room with wood burner, two bedrooms, bathroom and a large landing area which could perhaps lend itself – with a little imagination, to being a further bedroom.
Attached to the rear of the cottage is a surprise! A pool room with circular swimming pool, changing room, hot tub and a bar – making for an ideal area in which to entertain guests.
A range of out buildings and brick stores attached to the property offer a surprisingly large amount of storage options – and include work-room, wooden work shed with double glazing, wood store and a selection of timber framed animal cages/runs.

A combination of wrought iron and timber frame with polycarbonate sides and roof upon a brick base – with a full height brick elevation to the West end. Circular heated swimming pool (15ft in diameter and 4ft depth) with polished chrome ladder and grab rails - the pool was relined and overhauled in 2015.
To one corner is a conveniently placed changing room (7'10 x 5'08). Also within the pool room is a bar area, styled in a 'tropical' fashion. A hot tub is also located within the pool room ensuring a space ideal for recreation and entertainment. Sliding door leading to rear garden.

Front Garden
Tall wrought iron gates allow both vehicular and pedestrian access to the lengthy gravelled drive which sweeps to a spacious parking area to the front of the property, allowing for the accommodation of several vehicles. A large lawn area is also to the front of the property and enclosed on all sides by a tall ever green hedging and trees which combine to offer a high degree of privacy. A tall lockable gate to the north side of the property allows direct access to the rear garden. To the South West end of the house can be found a convenient outside WC ( 5'7 x 3' ), and an impressively sized workshop ( 14'2 x 7'10 ) which benefits from a recently renewed roof.

Rear Garden
Being completely enclosed by a combination of tall established hedging and timber fencing, the rear garden has been design for the safe containment of animals, with an extensive array of pens constructed from timber frame and steel mesh – these could perhaps be adapted for many different species – and which encircle a paved patio area with planting.
A metal log store (7'08 x 9'04) and timber shed (16'02 x 11'09)– formerly a car port – sit to the North side of the house.
