Jollyboys has been the subject of a careful programme of restoration culminating in an attractive listed period house, re-imagined for 21st century living and exemplified by a high quality kitchen, bathrooms and lovely colour schemes throughout. The main hallway includes a former fireplace and exposed timbers, complemented by an oak floor. The main living room has oak floors and a principal feature is the fireplace with log burner. Adjoining the kitchen is a cosy sitting room with exposed timbers and log burner and to the rear of the house, overlooking the gardens, is a good sized home office with fitted shelving. Pride of places goes to the beautifully appointed kitchen/family room fitted by Humphrey Munson and finished in period colours with two sets of bi-fold doors opening onto the gardens providing lovely views beyond over open farmland. Adjoining the kitchen is a utility room with a door out to the front driveway and adjacent from the drive is a thatched roof office/gym.
On the first floor there are five generous bedrooms, the principal bedroom having an extensive range of fitted wardrobes complemented by exposed timbers and a highly appointed en suite bath/shower room. The second bedroom, which is an extension to the original property, has far-reaching views to the rear, vaulted ceilings and en suite shower room. The remaining three bedrooms are serviced by a family bathroom.
The grounds are accessed through electric double gates into a substantial driveway providing secure parking. There is a small copse, lawns and an adjoining enclosed hard-surface tennis court. Adjacent to the tennis court is a vegetable plot with a detached useful garden store.
The gardens to the rear include a traditional summer house, terracing behind the kitchen ideal for al fresco dining with an an extensive area of lawns retained by mature beds and hedging which sit adjacent to a lovely swathe of open farmland providing far-reaching views.
