Ashcroft, an impressive former Victorian vicarage is a handsome and spacious stone-built period home built in 1857. The property sits in an elevated position in a substantial plot of around 1.59 acres in all with perfectly manicured and landscaped gardens with a separate grazing paddock. Ashcroft has been completely renovated, extended and redecorated to offer beautifully presented accommodation which has been tastefully decorated and furnished to complement the period style and features of the property, whilst ensuring the property also benefits from modern requirements such as immaculate bedrooms with high quality en-suite facilities, fixtures and fittings. This exceptional family home will appeal to a number of buyers with differing requirements. The two apartments have been designed as holiday lets providing the possibility of an additional income stream but also offer scope for use as ancillary accommodation depending on individual needs.
The attractive front door is partially glazed with beautiful stained glass detail and opens into the entrance vestibule with period tiling to the floor which leads onwards to the reception hallway and the principal reception rooms with a central staircase to the upper floor, stairs to the basement and a downstairs shower room.
The first of the reception rooms is the drawing room, a room of generous proportions with original decorative cornicing to the ceiling and a feature gas fire with attractive surround. A large bay window with original wooden shutters to the sides boasts fabulous countryside views with a southerly aspect. The sitting room sits to the rear elevation; another room of good size offering a stripped and varnished wooden floor with a feature gas fire and marble surround.
Fully glazed double doors lead into the dining room with a light and airy feel offering two bay windows to the side affording lovely views of the gardens and countryside and a fireplace with an impressive dressed stone arch with gas stove.
To the rear of the property is the spacious kitchen and breakfast room with a fine selection of wall and floor units with complementary granite work surfaces. There is a three oven AGA with a two oven electric AGA Companion with gas hob attached, set into an attractive inglenook complemented with recessed lighting. Integral appliances include a dishwasher and there is space for an American style fridge freezer along with ample room for a dining table and chairs. French doors to the rear give access to the enclosed private courtyard with workshop and tool store. A rear hallway from the kitchen offers a useful utility room with further storage and laundry solutions, linen cupboard and housing the boiler, whilst a home office with fitted cabinetry is also located off. From the reception hallway a staircase leads to the basement and a room which is currently used as a downstairs bedroom with an en-suite shower room. This could lend itself to a host of other uses depending on individual needs.
An elegant carved staircase rises to the first floor with an arched picture window at half landing level flooding the space with natural light and leading to the welcoming bedroom accommodation. There are six spacious bedrooms and all are beautifully presented with decorative colour palettes reminiscent of the original period. The principal suite is particularly impressive, comprising a large bedroom with a dual aspect and private balcony along with an adjoining room, currently used as a smaller bedroom, which would make an ideal dressing room. Adjacent is the luxurious bathroom with freestanding roll top bath, walk-in shower, wash hand basin, heated towel rail and WC. Five further bedrooms are served by high quality en-suite facilities. Some enjoy balcony access and the majority benefit from a southerly aspect with lovely countryside views.
Two apartments are available, both with an open plan sitting room, dining room and kitchen with a fully fitted kitchen and all the necessary appliances for modern day living. The ground floor apartment has one bedroom and an adjacent shower room, whilst the upper apartment offers two bedrooms with en-suite facilities. Depending on individual needs they could offer further ancillary accommodation or they are ideally placed for a semi-rural business and/or lifestyle opportunity which would appeal to a number of buyers.
Entering through double gates a large driveway leads to the rear and front of the property with two electric car charging points and parking for a substantial number of vehicles. The large double garage sits to the front of the property and offers remote controlled doors with an additional integral garage door to the rear courtyard, an upper mezzanine level along with power and lighting. Well-manicured and landscaped gardens surround the property and offer a mixture of lawned areas, mature shrubs and trees and an abundance of perennial plantings. There are various areas to sit and relax and lovely views are afforded from various locations with the added benefit of peace, tranquility and privacy. An additional grazing paddock of around 0.8 acres sits to the front of the property.
