A HANDSOME EXTENDED VICTORIAN RESIDENCE AMID MATURE GARDENS & GROUNDS LOCATED IN A CONVENIENT SEMI RURAL LOCATION

DESCRIPTION
Durrant Green House is a substantial property, dating from the Victorian era and subsequently extended to provide expansive, bright and airy family living space. The property has traditional brick and tile hung elevations and the frontage is particularly attractive, being symmetrical with bay windows and an arched central entrance porch.

Internally, a number of original features are on display including a range of pretty period fireplaces, deep skirting boards and panelled doors. There is a combination of timber framed bay, sash and casement windows along with double glazed windows in the extension. Above are lofty ceilings, and much of the accommodation is double aspect, taking advantage of high levels of natural light and garden views.

The elegant reception rooms and kitchen provide ideal space for large families and entertaining. The dining room and conservatory lead directly from from the kitchen, perfect for summer parties. A cosy oil fired Rayburn range and terracotta tiled floor tiles make the kitchen particularly inviting and there is plenty of space for informal dining and generous storage space. The adjacent utility room is very spacious and has masses of further fitted cabinets. There is potential for the creation of a completely self contained annexe within the west wing (subject to planning). On the ground floor this currently comprises a study and reception room with en suite shower room. Upstairs are five double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master benefits from extensive fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room and the remaining bedrooms all have integral or fitted wardrobes and wash hand basins.

The property sits centrally within the grounds and features some magnificent mature trees and established hedging. There are beds and borders filled with flowering shrubs creating colourful displays throughout the seasons. The pond is overhung with Willow trees, creating a delightful focal point and encouraging a host of wildlife visitors to the gardens. Ample space for parking is provided on the gravel driveway and there is also a brick built double garage.
