Full description

Sowerbys are delighted to offer the market this attractive country family home set in two acres of stunning gardens. Ellingham House combines original features from the Georgian, Regency and Victorian periods as the home has been substantially extended over the years. A truly superb example of a traditional English home that has been upgraded by the current owners. With flexible and generous accommodation throughout and tucked away within this delightful village of Ellingham the property makes a great family home. The property consists of entrance porch, reception hall, study, drawing room, dining room, garden room, family room, kitchen, workshop and cloakroom. On the first floor there is a further master bedroom, four further double bedrooms, family bathroom, separate shower room and another cloakroom. The outside consists of long gravelled driveway, parking areas to front and side of property, traditional English walled garden, meadow, tennis lawn, family garden, woodshed, garage, stabling and a further enclosed floral garden and sun terrace. 

ENTRANCE PORCH With dual aspect glazing overlooking the rather grand driveway and meadow and tiled flooring. Second door leading to the entrance hall. 

ENTRANCE HALL 16' x 12' 2" (4.88m x 3.71m) The entrance hall or additional reception room enjoys a Georgian sash window to the front aspect overlooking the front gardens. The centre piece of the room is the large cast iron log burner with brick and wood surround. With fitted carpet flooring and original period doors the room is bursting with character. Access to the right storage wing. 

STUDY 12' 2" x 9' 9" (3.71m x 2.97m) To the left of the entrance hall there is an ample study or home office with all the necessary points. Window to the front aspect and feature brick fireplace, carpet flooring and access to the left storage wing.

From the entrance hall enter the first of the extensions completed in the regency period and instantly you will notice the lovely high ceilings and increased feeling of space. Leading off the hallway there is the sitting room, known as the "blue room" and the family room.

SITTING ROOM 17' 1" x 14' 7" (5.21m x 4.44m) The "blue room" offers delightful views over what was the tennis lawn and provides a fantastic formal area to host guests away from the other family areas of the home. With the original period ceiling high sash windows complete with shutters and large fireplace the room really has a grand feel to it, enhanced by the decorative coving and lower level panelling. 

FAMILY ROOM 14' 9" x 13' 11" (4.5m x 4.24m) The family room is smaller and feels more intimate. With another log burner, carpet flooring and window to the side aspect. The room is the perfect place to relax with the family, curl up and watch a film. Indeed on a summer evening you can open the doors into the garden room and enjoy those longer nights. 

DINING ROOM 14' 11" x 11' 11" (4.55m x 3.63m) The formal dining room is a large and light space with tiled flooring, open cast iron fire place with surround and window to the side aspect. The room has been tastefully decorated and leads from the second hallway into the kitchen. 

KITCHEN 16' 4" x 10' 1" (4.98m x 3.07m) The kitchen has been recently modernised bringing it up to date with modern family living. Tiled flooring throughout, french doors to the enclosed floral garden and sun terrace and window to the side aspect. With a range of fixed wall and base level units, double rangemaster, tiled splashbacks, washing machine and fridge freezer. Back door leading to rear garden, parking area and garage.

OUTSIDE The outside space at Ellinghm House is stunning and really has it all. As you pull up to the property you are greeted by a long and grand entrance driveway with large areas of lawn and walled gardens to the left and an unspoilt natural meadow or grazing land to the right. To the side aspect of the property there is the former tennis lawn surrounded by a mature treeline providing an absolutely private space to enjoy. Towards the back of the property we have another family garden laid to lawn, wood shed, garage, and some former stabling currently used for additional storage. There is a further gravelled parking area and fully enclosed floral garden leading from the garden room with additional sun terrace. Totalling two acres it really is a special place and offers so much to garden lovers and families alike.
