Property description

Presenter-led video tour available, please visit the ‘video’ tab. Set back on Sandy Lane amongst idyllic, rural surroundings we find this truly remarkable and unique detached family home. Dawn Chorus is a real ‘statement home’ boasting stunning red-brick architecture within an extensive and equally as impressive plot.

Boarded by mature trees and nestled away behind a gated entrance Dawn Chorus enjoys tranquil surroundings and a private setting. The grounds measure up at just under an acre and boast equestrian facilities, landscaped gardens, a cobbled courtyard, a private driveway, outbuildings and stables which have approved plans in place to further develop – but more on that later. The ‘wrap-around’ nature of the gardens at Dawn Chorus provide an opportunity to capitalise on every point of the compass making the most of any opportunity to relax, be active or entertain outdoors. As well as really enhancing the curb appeal, the cobbled driveway adds to the character of the landscape (making for a great first impression) but also offers as much private parking as the new homeowners are likely to require. Over the years the existing homeowners are proud to have loved, raised and cared for show-winning horses who have made good use of the equestrian facilities which it has to be said, are impeccably well maintained. The paddock is sure to be a welcomed acquisition to anybody with an interest in caring for horses, or perhaps starting a new business. However, the current homeowners are happy to discuss the possibility of selling Dawn Chorus excluding the equestrian facilities if the new potential owners would so prefer.

Home to our clients for some thirty-five years, it’s clear to see from the moment you enter the property just how loved and well looked after the property has been over that period of time. The great first impression given externally only continues internally, as Dawn Chorus greets you with beautiful features and period detail. Stunning stained-glass windows surround the home which work brilliantly with the ‘Victorian-style’ tyles by the properties dedicated vestibule entrance. The first reception room, the family lounge, can be found on the right-hand side of the hallway. With a beautiful feature fire enclosed within a fireplace, intricate coving and a bay window; the family lounge feels every inch as regal as you would hope. The double-glazed bay faces the landscaped gardens to the front of the property, to the bottom of which we find a summer-house. Beyond the family lounge we find a second reception room of an equally impressive size. With yet another feature fire, this time sat in-front of a bespoke panelled wall this versatile space feels warm and welcoming. The second reception room is currently being used as a snug come dining space by our clients but it could serve a variety of uses in alignment with the requirements of the buyers. The family kitchen is located at the rear aspect of the home and really capitalises on natural light thanks to the large bay window, within which is custom-built dining space. The kitchen offers ample storage and base/wall units made of solid oak. An exposed brickwork chimney breast provides the most incredible focal point and surrounds a stainless-steel oven with has hob. A utility space can be found opposite the kitchen.

The extensive accommodation within this property is offered over three floors. On the first floor, we find three of the five bedrooms. Two well proportioned, double bedrooms with ample storage sit side by side facing opposing sides of the home. In truth, either one of these bedrooms are large enough in size to be declared the ‘master room’. A smaller bedroom can be found at the end of the first-floor landing. All three of these bedrooms are served by a contemporary bathroom suite which has been installed by the current owners in recent years. The bathroom is part tiled with a walk-in shower, vanity unit and ‘supersize’ bathtub. Whilst finished to a modern standard, the bathroom still boasts beautiful coving, an original arch and of course, stained-glass windows representing the perfect mix between contemporary design and tradition. Beside the bathroom, a secondary staircase leads the way to the top floor of Dawn Chorus, besides which the property offers a dedicated W/C.

Both bedrooms offered on the top floor, as we’ve come to expect from this property, are a great size. Both large enough to host a double bed as well as eaves storage and enough square footage for free-standing storge. An impressive sky-light floods the top floor with natural light in the day time, and star-light of an evening.

It was mentioned earlier on that the property has stables and outbuildings with permission in place for further development. Agreed plans suggest that the current stable (within it’s existing structure) could be converted into a self-contained dwelling. Plans suggest a large double bedroom to the rear, a lounge/snug to the front and the generous space left over would easily accommodate communal space, a kitchenette and bathroom. Beyond the stables, Dawn Chorus offers outbuildings for additional storage, a work-shop & a substantial garage for yet further parking.

What the agent says…

For me, Dawn Chorus represents incredible value but also presents incredible potential. The grounds of the property genuinely do offer something for the whole family, and internally the property is incredibly warm, welcoming and what I can only describe as being ‘homely’.

Within the video feature we made for Dawn Chorus, I really tried to highlight just what a great property this is, but in truth this home is one that has to be seen to be truly appreciated. My clients have proudly raised a family (and a couple of horses) here over some three decades; but it’s clear to see that the home has had as much love invested into it as the rest of the family. Flawlessly well maintained, and a property that any family would be lucky to call home. A unique opportunity with the potential to further develop.

If you are interested in viewing Dawn Chorus for yourself then please contact our offices on the number provided quoting reference BM0005 when you do so.
