Tenure: Freehold

A neatly mown lawn and large, colourful Hydrangea sets the scene as you approach this impressive home. A gravel drive provides additional parking in front of the detached garage located to the side of the property. Built in the mid nineteenth century, this property retains many of the original features. High, vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and lovely window seats come together to create a spacious home that is full of character. Steps lead up to the entrance door beneath a storm porch whilst a lovely fig tree provides a little shade.

A decoratively tiled floor of the hall leads to a wooden staircase, storage cupboards beneath, with banisters in the gothic style, rising to the first floor and continues to the other accommodation on the spacious ground floor. There are two, spacious double bedrooms, both with large casement windows and window seats providing plenty of light. Large chimney breasts create innovative wardrobe areas, the disused fireplaces provide additional storage, and the wooden floorboards are a delight. A third, smaller double bedroom also has many of the same features. Opposite the third bedroom is a spacious WC, with a tiled-slate floor, a modern WC with hidden cistern and a hand basin. This large room has plenty of space for the future installation of a bath and shower if required.

To the first floor, there is a split-level family bathroom, a kitchen/dining room, a sitting room, a study and a fourth bedroom. The kitchen/dining room is fabulous room, with a twelve foot high vaulted ceiling and large window, feels extremely light and airy and has plenty of space for a dining table and seating to cater for the largest of families. Exposed beams and a large, brick fireplace fitted with a wood burning stove, tiled hearth and substantial wooden surround and mantel, make wonderful features. The kitchen contains all of the essentials, with a variety of base units and matching eye-level cabinets, a sink and drainer below one of the windows, a dishwasher and an oven and hob with extract hood above. A separate larder provides ample storage for the groceries. The sitting room feels warm and comfortable, and with two windows, natural light pours in. Exposed beams contrast nicely against the white ceiling and make a nice feature. An area to the rear of the kitchen is used as a study by the current owners, an excellent use of space and this leads into the fourth bedroom. Another double, this room has a useful mezzanine storage area above and has a lovely feature window with seat beneath.

What the owner loves most - "The character of the property and all the space and being reverse level having such lovely views"

Bear in mind - "Although semi-detached you don't realise that you have neighbours and with such a large garden you just don't hear anyone"

OUTSIDE Outside, there is an area of lawn to the front and a path leads between the garage and the entrance door to the extensive rear garden. A large lawn stretches into the distance, interspersed with conifers, cherry trees, bamboo, mature shrubs and bushes. There is an area of hard standing, perfect for a picnic or enjoying the peace and quiet in this spacious and wonderful garden. There is also a raised bed for growing the vegetables, a timber child's playhouse and a large shed for storing the garden furniture and lawn mower.
