Full description

East Bonhard is a superb rural property in an excellent, secluded yet accessible location. The house, which is the focal point of the property was converted and extended from former agricultural buildings some 25 years ago by the current owners. It enjoys extensive accommodation, arranged over ground and first floors, extending to some 3,553 sq ft and together with its outbuildings and land, forms a lovely small residential estate.

The property is approached initially by a shared driveway, which then swings into a private, gravelled drive adjacent to the house. The principal accommodation is accessed off the main hall. This includes a sitting room with a gas fireplace, a drawing room with lovely views out over the garden, and a cloakroom. Also off the main hall is a formal dining room, which is conveniently next to the kitchen. The kitchen has an excellent range of wall and floor units, which incorporate a Belfast sink, and have timber work surfaces. There is a substantial gas stove and LPG-fired range with electric ovens below. There is an integrated dishwasher and a free-standing fridge freezer, which is included in the sale. Double doors lead from the kitchen into a conservatory, which overlooks the garden and enjoys afternoon and evening sun. The ground floor enjoys excellent ancillary space. This includes a large utility room with a range of floor units incorporating a stainless steel sink, and with space and plumbing for a washing machine. A door from here leads out into the driveway and a further door leads into a tack room. This goes directly into the principal storage shed and has a flat on the first floor above with a single bedroom, small sitting room and shower room.

On the first floor, the property benefits from a master bedroom with an en suite shower room and ample storage space behind mirrored wardrobes. The views to the south and east are exceptional. There are 2 further double bedrooms with en suite shower rooms and a further double bedroom, which is currently used as an office. This is served by a recently refurbished family bathroom, which has a bath, basin and WC.

East Bonhard is approached from the main road by a shared, tarmacked driveway which leads into a gravelled driveway adjacent to the house. The grounds extend to approximately 5.04 acres and have a wonderful mix of formal garden and land ideal for either equestrian use or for pedigree stock. The formal garden lies to the west of the house. Immediately to the west of the house is a patio, ideal for outside entertaining. This is surrounded by a lawn with shrub beds and mature trees providing privacy and shelter. The principal formal garden lies to the west of this and has a pond as a focal point. This is surrounded by some water-loving species, an acer, willows and other mature trees. The pond is fed by a small stream, which has a Japanese-style bridge, adjacent to which is a large summerhouse. There are 2 paddocks included in the sale, one which lies to the north and one to the south.

To the south of the house is an implement store. The principal outbuildings lie to the east of the house and adjoin. These include a large storage shed with a garage door and a workshop. This links into the tack room and has a separate door into the stable block. This has 5 loose boxes and access out into the drive.
