Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming and thoroughly individual five bedroom detached residence, dating back to 1901, with the more recent addition of a superb, self-contained one bedroom annexe, set within three acres of grounds, with extensive outbuildings in an exceptionally secluded rural setting.

The Hollies was formerly a wood cutters cottage, however the property was significantly extended during the 1980’s and now offers characterful and well-appointed accommodation with a quirky, three-storey, split level layout.

The main house has four bedrooms and a family shower room on the top floor, all accessed via a spacious galleried landing with an open office area. Two of the bedrooms have ample built-in eaves storage, whilst spectacular views over the surrounding countryside.

On the ground floor, there is an impressive, dual aspect open plan living and dining room with exposed brickwork and beams. The living area has a beautiful fireplace with a wood burning stove, whilst the dining area looks out over the gardens through a pretty set of arched, leaded French doors.

A half flight of steps lead down to a wonderful open plan, farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room. This has been fitted with an excellent range of traditionally styled wall and floor units, set around a mix of granite and granite effect work surfaces, a Belfast sink, a range cooker and a ceramic tiled floor. The kitchen is complemented by a large utility room with an attractive Victorian-style chequered tiled floor.

A half staircase leads to a splendid dual aspect master bedroom and family bathroom. The bathroom has been fitted with a traditionally styled white suite, including a free-standing rolled top, claw foot bath and Victorian-style tiling. The master bedroom has a cast iron fireplace, a walk-in wardrobe and a set of leaded French doors which open onto a private sun terrace with far reaching views over the grounds.


The annexe is contained within the main house, yet enjoys its own private access via a set of stable doors, providing a perfect balance between independent and collective living. It has a large, dual aspect sitting room, a well equipped kitchen, a pleasant bathroom with a modern white suite and a dual aspect double bedroom.


The Hollies is set within a generous and secluded plot of approximately three acres, which back onto beautiful, ancient woodland. The property has extensive parking, including a large, gravelled parking area beyond the house, a parking space in front of the studio and a tarmac driveway which leads to a huge barn and workshop.

The grounds are mainly laid to lawn and planted with a variety of mature trees, with well stocked beds and borders interspersed throughout. There is a large, paved patio and barbeque area adjacent to the house, ideal for outdoor entertaining. There is a useful studio and a charming summerhouse overlooking a pond, which would make a superb home office or teenage den.

The grounds enjoy an exceptional degree of privacy and are ideal for anyone looking for privacy and seclusion.
