Full description

An exceptional detached 5 bedroom property that has been improved and extended to create a fantastic family home with generous south facing gardens of 0.4 acre with 2 garages and parking. EPC Band D.

The Property - Hollybank House is a remarkable property which has evolved under the current ownership to form a fantastic home designed to suit a busy modern lifestyle with the qualities of a traditional family home in mind. Originally constructed as a cottage in around 1901 using local blue lias stone, the property was significantly enlarged around 6 years ago to create additional kitchen, reception and bedroom space whilst still maintaining a classical layout with a smooth flow from room to room. Owing to the elevated position of the village and open farmland adjoining the garden, Hollybank House enjoys a charming, far-reaching rural outlook, providing a lasting reminder of the beautiful countryside in which the property is set.

Beautifully proportioned rooms have been created throughout with both sociable and peaceful reception spaces available, offering the perfect setting for any occasion. The centre piece of the property is arguably the kitchen/dining room which spans the full width of the house with plenty of space for a family dining table as well as a breakfast bar forming part of the fitted kitchen, providing an ideal environment for all types of meals from day-to-day casual suppers to formal entertaining. Designed for comfort in all seasons, both the family room and the kitchen benefit from fireplaces both capable of housing log burners, which provide a warming glow in winter whilst doors open directly to the sun terrace from both rooms, allowing a highly desirable indoor/outdoor lifestyle during warmer months. An expansive and sociable space, the family room is large enough to accommodate a crowd and is thoughtfully appointed to avoid losing the comfortable atmosphere which makes a living space truly enjoyable to be in, whether the occasion is an informal gathering of friends and family or simply a moment of relaxation. This room is complimented by the sitting room which is a more cloistered space ideal for those who prefer to "get away from it all" and enjoy a sense of seclusion without needing to leave the house. Alternatively, the sitting room could easily be re-purposed as a study for those working from home or as a ground floor bedroom should single storey living be desired.

The first floor is another area where the extension works have had a significant impact on the accommodation. 5 double bedrooms can be found arranged around a central hallway which also gives access to the family bathroom, offering both bath and shower facilities. The two largest bedrooms are a particularly fine feature of the property, both being generously proportioned with en suite shower rooms and windows to the rear aspect from which the far-reaching views can best be appreciated.

Domestically, the property has been thoughtfully appointed with every modern convenience required by a busy family. One area where this is particularly apparent is in the kitchen which has been fitted with stylish bespoke units, amongst which are an integrated dishwasher and a Rangemaster cooker, beneath an attractive wooden work surface, providing ample storage for cooking equipment, and an island which includes a breakfast bar. The kitchen is serviced by a utility room and adjacent cloakroom which, with fitted units, a Belfast sink, plumbing for a washing machine and a tiled floor (which is continued through to the kitchen and cloakroom), is perfectly set up as a boot room where wet and muddy shoes can be removed before entering the rest of the house. Alternatively the front door opens into a lobby which is similarly appointed with a forgiving tiled floor.

It is clear to see as soon as you enter the property that the highest quality fittings have been selected to ensure that the fresh and timelessly stylish theme of the property is continued throughout. Solid oak floors in the family room as well as throughout the entire first floor and oak internal doors are the finishing touch to the warm and sociable atmosphere of this home whilst hinting at the traditional cottage appeal of the original property. Classical floor tiles have been used in the kitchen to perfectly complement the bespoke units, giving a farmhouse-style feeling to this fantastic, family-orientated room and serving the dual purpose of being easily maintained as well as leaving a lasting first impression upon entering the property from the front door lobby.

Outside - Hollybank House enjoys a generous, south-facing plot of approximately 0.4 of an acre which is primarily arranged to the rear as an established garden. Enjoying a sunny aspect, the garden has been carefully landscaped to create a variety of opportunities for outdoor enjoyment with a sweeping lawn interspersed with flower and shrub beds offering keen gardeners a chance to flex green fingers whilst those with children or pets will appreciate this easily enclosable and largely private area for it's security. A paved sun terrace spanning the full width of the property is a perfect place for relaxing with cool drinks or dining alfresco whilst enjoying the full benefits of the southerly aspect and countryside views when weather permits.

Parking is well provided for with a gravelled driveway to the front offering off-road parking for a number of vehicles and also giving access to a single garage. Additional parking is provided by a former garage which is now used as an open-fronted car port which, in conjunction with the adjoining workshop, provides an excellent hobby space with the potential for re-purposing this space to create a home office or annexe accommodation if desired, subject to any necessary consents.

Services - Mains water, drainage and electricity. Oil fired central heating.
