Property Description

Full description

IN BUYING THE DENE YOU ARE ACQUIRING A HOME OF CONSIDERABLE HISTORICAL IMPORTANCE, AS IT IS A FINE EXAMPLE OF AN ARTS AND CRAFTS PROEPRTY. BUILT AT THE TURN OF THE 20TH CENTURY THE PROPERTY EXEMPLIFIES WHAT THE FOUNDING FATHERS OF THE ARTS AND CRAFTS MOVEMENT WANTED FROM PROPERTY DESIGN. John Ruskin's philosophy on the relationship of design was based on art, society and labour. William Morris put this into practise placing great value on work, the joy of craftsmanship and the beauty of materials. No where better are these principles to be found than in the impressive reception hall with a stunning oak staircase, oak wall and ceiling panelling and the design of the internal doors. Once you enter the three principal reception rooms you are immediately aware of the importance orientation with natural light steaming through the large and wide bay windows. The oak wall and ceiling panelling features in all three rooms as do impressive open fireplaces. Such is the quality of the panelling and other timber work it looks it was installed recently rather than over a hundred years ago. From the period charm of the main living space, all having stunning views of the grounds, you enter the more contemporary part of the property which includes a Snug and modern dining kitchen with a 4 oven Aga, and a generous range of units, granite work tops and integrated appliances. Off the rear hall you have a study, cloakroom/wc and access to the cellars. The elegant panelled staircase which has lights on all its newel posts gives access to the first and second floors. At first floor level you have a master suite with a dressing room and en-suite bathroom, a guest with suite an en-suite shower room, bedroom three and large house bathroom. On the second floor you alight at the top of the stairs into a tower which is glazed on three sides offering wonderful views, two further bedrooms, shower room and store. Standing in magnificent grounds which extend to over two acres and adjoin a stream and farmland. EPC Rating F
