Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Beechwood House is an extremely elegant family home, displaying all the traditional period features including lofty ceilings, large sash windows, original picture rails and deep skirting boards. Constructed in the late 1800’s, the property is light and airy with well proportioned rooms. Having been well maintained throughout and extended in a contemporary style it makes for a versatile, comfortable and easy living space. The property is entered through a partly glazed front door under an original fanlight above. The pale stone floor of the hallway which leads from the front to the rear of the house provides the perfect welcome and gives access to a rear cloakroom and has a door which leads downstairs to a large cellar. An original door has been preserved at the rear of the hallway providing views of the garden. The hallway has underfloor heating. The heart of this home is the dual aspect kitchen/dining/family room. The rear wall of this room is fully glazed with French doors to the south facing terrace and gardens beyond. It has been fitted by Plain English with handmade Shaker style units. A large central island with a solid granite worktop includes a butler sink, fitted dishwasher and wicker basket storage units. A Falcon gas cooker providing two ovens and five gas rings sits between two Iroko work tops with cupboards above and below. There is a Miele American style fridge freezer and wine cooler. The working end of the kitchen has an original oak floor which leads into the dining area with a beautiful heated limestone floor which continues throughout the large utility room, downstairs wet room and rear entrance hall. The large utility room has built in cupboards, butler sink and Iroko work top/drainer with washing machine and tumble dryer below. A well appointed wet room is also located adjacent to the rear vaulted and fully glazed entrance hall. The elegant twin aspect sitting room has a solid oak floor and large bay window with window seat looking onto the garden. There is a cast iron open fire housed in the original marble fire surround and hearth. Large original panelled sliding doors can be used to separate the sitting room into two rooms if required. A partly glazed door leads to a conservatory/garden room with access to the terrace. The first-floor landing is over two levels and flooded with light from the Velux window above. The property has 5 bedrooms; 3 to the front elevation, 2 of which have fitted wardrobes, and a further 2 bedrooms to the rear elevation overlooking the garden, one of which is the master suite. This retains the original floorboards, two fitted wardrobes and a window seat with storage. The spacious en suite bathroom, also with original floorboards, has a cast iron Victorian roll top bath and storage cupboards to both sides. There is a high level wc and traditional pedestal wash hand basin. In addition, there is large family bathroom and a further shower room.

Outside there is a large gravel driveway to the front of the property with comfortable parking for up to 5/6 cars. A brick wall and pleached hornbeam trees stretch along the front of the property. There is a well stocked front border and a further small flowerbed to the side elevation below a mature wisteria trained on the east elevation. A covered arched area with oak pillars leads to the cellar steps and additional external doorway. This area is currently used to store logs and bicycles. A large south facing paved sun terrace runs along the back of the house, ideal for outdoor entertaining, and incorporates a clematis and grapevine covered arbour where the barbecue is located. This area spills onto a walled garden of approx. 0.38 of an acre, mainly laid to lawn and bordered on all sides by well stocked flower beds and box hedging. A pathway to the left-hand boundary leads to the pool house. This is brick built and measures 36’ x 18’ with pool heating and dehumidifier. The swimming pool has roman end integral steps and measures approx. 27’ x 13’. At the far end of the driveway is a timber framed secure double garage (18’3 x 15’9) with a separate single door at the rear providing access to the main garden. Two additional characterful and self-contained studio apartments are accessed via a gate from the driveway. Each apartment is bright and airy with a number of Velux windows and conventional windows overlooking a small, terraced area. Both apartments feature air conditioning, spacious modern shower rooms, fully equipped kitchens, central heating and large living/bedroom areas with granite topped breakfast bars. There is a lockable adjoining door between both apartments allowing both to be used as one unit or two as required. Both studios share an additional heated utility room, with stainless steel sink, cupboards and washer/dryer.
