Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Substantial refurbished village house in over an acre.


21 Stocks Lane is a substantial modern village house presented to a high standard which underwent a comprehensive programme of extension and refurbishment between 2014-16.

The light and spacious accommodation which extends to approximately 3,261 sq ft, flows well around an impressive central vaulted reception hall with a galleried landing above. The hallway leads through to a dining and sitting area spanning the rear of the house, with wood burning stove to one end and three sets of bi-folding doors leading out into the garden. From here there is a study/library with built-in desks and book shelving along opposite walls and a cloakroom. The main sitting room has a Jetmaster fireplace and wide windows to the front together with access to the sitting/dining area. To the left of the hallway is a play room/family room with built-in storage units.

The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of white painted units with a large central island topped with granite work surfaces. There is a space for an American style refrigerator and a number of integrated appliances including space for a range style cooker. Adjacent to the kitchen is a well-equipped utility room and, from the side door in the kitchen there is access to the annexe/office building to one side of the house.

At first floor level there are five bedrooms including a bright main bedroom with Juliet balconies overlooking the garden and views beyond, dressing area with built-in cupboards, a further useful eaves store room and a re-fitted en suite shower room. On the other side of the galleried landing a guest bedroom with views over the garden and an en suite bathroom. There are three other bedrooms and two family bathrooms in addition.

The refurbishment included the replacement of all of the windows with Fintons factory finished hardwood double glazed high performance units and high quality joinery and fittings have been incorporated throughout including bespoke built in cabinetry to the family/playroom and the study/library.

The separate annexe/office building is attached to the double garage and includes a small kitchenette area and w.c, a main room with glazed doors leading in to a further office or “garden room” with French doors to the garden. Above the main room, accessed via open tread stairs is a further “mezzanine” level. The space lends itself to use as a self-contained office or with minor alterations a useful self-contained annexe (subject to any necessary consents).

A shingled driveway to the front leads into a wide parking area with a level lawn to one side and planting surrounding leading up to the double garage. To the rear is a deep paved terrace along the rear elevation of the house and beyond this are level lawns and a deep herbaceous border to one side. The garden is large, laid mainly to grass with well-stocked borders and features a planted orchard, vegetable garden, pond, shed and a summerhouse to one end with views over the surrounding countryside.

In all about 1.12 acres.
