Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Discreetly hidden behind a high hedge is this delightful period residence with its origins in the Georgian era. It has been extended over the years and recently refurbished to the highest standard providing everything needed for modern day living while still including period features. It is approached either via a gate in the hedge or you can drive through electronic double gates onto a large gravel frontage where you can park a number of vehicles and adjacent to the double garage. Beyond the driveway is the modest garden surrounded by the tall hedging. It is primarily laid to lawn interspersed with trees and shrubs and a vine covered walkway leading to the large terrace and the house with its mellow brickwork, multipane sash windows, Palladian style porch entrance and front door.

You will be awestruck by the stunning entrance hall with its carved wood fireplace, bespoke engineered oak flooring that flows through all the ground floor reception rooms and archways to the very large lounge/dining room. As well as the large lounge area there is a glazed door to the drawing room with its marble fireplace and a fascinating two-way fire through to the dining area. There is also a small antechamber off the drawing room with french doors to a side terrace.

The superb contemporary kitchen/breakfast room has porcelain floor tiling, a trendy log burner and a central island including a solid wood topped breakfast bar. This light and bright room has two sets of french doors to the terrace, views over the garden and skylights providing additional natural light. There are very high quality units housing top-of-the-range appliances and also a utility room, cloakroom and boot cupboard on the ground floor.

At the top of the wide wood staircase you find an impressive landing that was part of the historical ballroom for the Old Rectory and leads to the attractive and modern family bathroom as well as to the four double bedrooms. These include the main bedroom with an ultra modern bathroom and a walk in dressing room and a guest room with an en-suite shower and fitted wardrobes
