Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Substantial character property set within beautiful acreage on the edge of Great Warley.


A striking 6 bedroom Victorian house set at the end of a private drive in mature grounds of about 2.4 acres. Constructed of gault brick under a slate roof, the house has classic elevations and has been constructed so that the principal reception rooms are orientated to take advantage of the views over the property's grounds and gardens. The property has been beautifully decorated throughout in neutral tones and the accommodation is grand in proportion retaining many original features associated with its period including high ceilings and ornate fireplaces. The property enjoys a warm feel with a wealth of natural light coming from the tall sash windows.

Although partly attached the property feels exceptionally private and has an imposing entrance which provides a welcoming reception space with a turning staircase rising to the first floor and a hatch with stairs descending to the cellar. To the front of the house is a formal dining room offering views to the side and a beautiful fireplace being a focal point of the room. The principal reception room is positioned to the southern corner of the house and is a charming room with a large bay providing views and light, and access to the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is at the heart of the house and has been fitted with a Clive Christian kitchen comprising light-coloured units, a range of appliances including an AGA. An informal dining space is located to the rear of the room which also leads to a utility room. Concluding the ground floor accommodation is a cloakroom and a further reception space providing an ideal television room or a space for home working.

To the first floor there are four bedrooms, the principal benefiting from a walk-in dressing room, the second with en suite facilities, in addition to the two main bathrooms. To the second floor there are two further bedrooms providing an ideal teenage or guest level.

The Croft is discreetly positioned at the end of a long private gated drive. The grounds and gardens are predominately to the north and east of the house providing areas of lawn and mature woodland. The gardens have been thoughtfully planted enjoying all year round colour, areas of interest and a good deal of natural seclusion. To the front the boundary is a substantial brick-built outbuilding currently being used for storage purposes but offering excellent potential for supplementary accommodation, subject to the necessary planning consents. To the rear of the house, accessed from the kitchen, is a private raised terrace seating area providing an ideal area for relaxation and al fresco dining.
