Property description

An elegant four-bedroom detached house with period features and high-quality fittings and fixtures throughout. Boasting two garages, a gated driveway and a three-tiered garden, Bywell House also has the potential to create a home office (or ground floor fifth bedroom) with bathroom from the current utility room/bathroom to the rear. The property is situated in an exceptional semi-rural location in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. The property also has the benefit of being chain-free.

The front door opens into a wide bright L-shaped hallway with fabulous slate heated flooring and two interior glazed storm doors. From the hall, there is access to the living room, dining room and kitchen and a doorway to the rear hall which in turn leads to a large utility/bathroom and a door to the garden. The living room is an exceptional, generous sized room with high ceilings, decorative cornicing and two large sash windows with deep recessed window seats overlooking the garden. A new Charnwood multi-fuel burner has recently been installed on a pale grey slate hearth, with two tall arched decorative lighted alcoves on either side. The slate flooring continues from the hall into the dining room and kitchen. The kitchen is a stylish blend of white and steel contemporary units with solid wood worktops and free-standing wooden storage furniture. There is a Belfast sink, free-standing electric range cooker and a walk-in larder with a window and a door to an under stairs storage cupboard- the larder presently houses a fridge/freezer but could be utilised to provide more storage and shelving space if needed.
The rear hall leads to a large utility/bathroom which is the only room requiring updating. Full planning permission has been granted to modernise this room, allowing the space to be separated into two rooms with skylight windows in a new slate roof. Although originally plans are in place to create a downstairs bathroom and utility/workroom, the rooms could be also be used as a fifth bedroom/home office or artist's studio with private en-suite or utility/cloakroom. The current owner has clarified with the planning office that the current doorway to this space (off the rear hall) could be retained without changing the plans, providing its' own private entrance from the garden, as well as access from the main hall of the house.
Stairs from the hallway lead to the first floor where there are four light and airy bedrooms all with sash windows facing to the front of the house with partial views over the countryside. The en-suite to the master bedroom has been given a period feel with an enviable Vitale roll top bath with claw feet with an Edwardian style wash basin and wc from Ideal Standard Classic Waverley range. On the first floor there is also a newly fitted shower room with a Bristan Edwardian style 1901 thermostatic shower in chrome finish.

OUTSIDE: The garden is arranged on three levels, the lowest level providing a secluded patio area screened by a large, well planted flower bed and ornamental trees, which provides a mass of colour and interest from early in the Spring until Autumn. The top garden is a generous size and has recently been cleared and levelled providing a large area which could either be turfed as a play area for children or cultivated as an area for growing vegetables or used for the planting of fruit trees. There are also two single garages and a gated driveway providing private parking. There is also parking in the lane directly outside the house.
