Yopa proudly presents this perfectly maintained and deceptively large house, boasting an array of desirable features and enchanting cottage garden to the rear. Nestled in a chocolate box hamlet location, this beautiful family home is a rare find. Built around the turn of the 19th century, and set well back from the road with a large drive and front garden, other noteworthy highlights include large reception rooms, a farmhouse size kitchen, five very spacious bedrooms, study, en suite to master and the original village well positioned in a welcoming and well kept private back garden. To truly grasp the spaciousness and high quality accommodation offered, an internal viewing is simply a must.
Located in the heart of the idyllic Staffordshire hamlet of Haunton, this beautiful house will capture the hearts of all viewers. With the main part of the house dating back to the early 1900's and set well back from the road, it has an impressive front aspect which includes a large front lawn with spectacular fir and pear trees. The driveway to the side of the lawn is block-paved with a decorative pattern, providing off road parking for seven cars, plus two extra spaces in the garage. There is also a hard standing area to the right of the house which provides a further parking space for two additional vehicles.
Viewers will enter the home via a wide porch that has an abundance of space for guests to remove coats and shoes and there is also a low-level cupboard containing the meters to the right. The entrance porch to the left of the staircase leads to a hallway with doors off to a study, well-proportioned utility room, guest WC with wash basin and the breakfast room. The utility room includes a Belfast sink, wall and floor mounted cupboards, separate plumbing space for a washing machine and tumble dryer, an exit door to the side of the property and an additional storage room situated within the utility room itself. To the right of the hallway is a door to a magnificent lounge.
The large rectangular shaped lounge provides plenty of options to position furniture around the stunning brick chimney breast with multi-fuel (log) burner fireplace. The lounge also benefits from a dual aspect, with three large windows providing natural light and unrivalled views across the front garden. It is worth noting that all windows in this home are double glazed and that there are radiators throughout. A door to the rear of the lounge accesses an equally impressive dining room. As shown in the photos, the current owners have positioned a six-seater dining table in the centre of the room whereas a table three-times the size could comfortably fit. This room could also be used as a second reception room. To the rear of the room are sliding patio doors out to the garden and there is a door to the left to access the kitchen.
The kitchen, like the previous two rooms, is a fantastic size with units mounted to all three back walls. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, four-ring electric hob, overhead extractor fan, low-level fridge and separate freezer, chest-height double oven and a sink with waste disposal and draining board. To the front of the kitchen is a lovely breakfast room / kitchen diner that is also accessed from the hallway (as mentioned above). There is also a useful understairs lobby for cloaks, but the main feature of the breakfast room is the stunning original cast-iron range cooker that is still in working order. From the kitchen there is an exit to the side patio via a handy boot room.
Moving upstairs, branching off the landing are four very generously sized double bedrooms, a floor to ceiling storage cupboard and family bathroom. The master bedroom is located on the left side of the house and comprises a marvellous wide-open space with two windows and its own en-suite shower room. The shower room features a wash hand basin, toilet, double-sized cubicle, airing cupboard and under floor heating. Accessed to the left of the landing, bedrooms two and three both overlook the rear garden. Full of character, they each benefit from dormer windows and are versatile in layout, allowing for open space to walk around large beds and wardrobes.
The fourth bedroom on the first floor is light and airy with attractive views over the front garden. Smaller in size than the other bedrooms, it is still large enough to be considered a master bedroom in many of today’s homes. The family bathroom has been cleverly designed by positioning a bathtub and wash basin within recesses. A further large recess above the stairwell means the bathroom features a tall shower cubicle and there is also a toilet as expected.
From the landing there is a second staircase leading up to the attic conversion. This third storey (second floor) comprises a small landing with two walk-in storage rooms which make good use of the eaves and access to the fifth double bedroom. Flooded with natural light from a large window, this delightful room with its original ceiling beams, offers beautiful views of the local area.
Finishing our tour outside, this gorgeous house comes with an equally attractive rear garden, which exudes a timeless charm of its own. There is a large flagstone patio which spans the entire width of the rear of the house and leads down the side to the rear of the garage. Situated in the centre of the garden is the original village well. This unusual feature is surrounded by block paving which leads to a path towards a very pretty pergola covered in vine leaves and flowers. To either side of the lawns the borders are well stocked with country cottage perennial flowers and shrubs. Two separate patio areas provide the perfect spot to relax and the hard standing area located to the right of the property is accessed via a gate to the side of the rear garden.
This truly lovely house offers an idyllic living experience. Its well-appointed rooms, character and overall style provides a unique blend of comfort and charm. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore this exceptional property first-hand.
