As soon as one steps into the impressive entrance hallway, the feeling of heritage and tradition is evident with a stunning dark wood carved staircase, original mosaic floor tiling and leaded light windows leading from the vestibule. The walls are covered with lincrusta wallpaper and also in situ are the original internal doors and casings. The property benefits from two equally impressive and grand reception rooms at the front of the home one currently used as the sitting room and the other as the dining room. Both rooms feature high ceiling with original panelling, ornate ceiling coving, large sash windows and impressive Victorian fireplaces. Leading from the hallway is a handy ground floor cloakroom and a larder, one of the features that are now reappearing in modern homes, and ideal to store the kitchen items. There is an ample sized morning room featuring views over the rear gardens, original Parquet flooring and a large built-in store cupboard and desk. The ground floor is completed with a traditional kitchen, fitted with wall and base units, stone flagged flooring, the original range cooker and a Belfast sink. The ground floor also has a traditional conservatory, the perfect addition to a home with such lovely garden views and beyond. The first floor offers an incredible five bedrooms (one currently and affectionately known as the library) and the family bathroom. The largest bedrooms are positioned at the front of the home, one below the turreted roof, and both are of an excellent size. Both offer high ceilings, tiled fire surrounds, and large windows with bedroom two offering a bay situated below the turret. The three additional bedrooms are positioned to the side and rear of the home as is the bathroom including a cast iron bath and separate w.c.
Externally, the property rests in an idyllic location, with driveway parking and mature planting, whilst there is a super sized rear garden which leads down to the edge of the Mere, an ideal spot to enjoy the tranquility of such a unique location, safely protected by wrought iron railings, being mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs to the perimeter. There are two additional brick external stores, ideal for housing the garden equipment. This amazing home does require some love and attention to modernise it but could we believe be one of the most landmark homes in this location.
We would highly recommend a prompt inspection of this fabulous home to avoid disappointment.
