Packed with CHARACTER, this substantial Edwardian MANOR HOUSE has been lovingly RESTORED to provide a comfortable home with modern conveniences whilst still maintaining its original CHARM & PERIOD FEATURES.

Description - Packed with character, this substantial Edwardian manor house has been lovingly restored to provide a comfortable home with modern conveniences whilst still maintaining its original charm & period features.
The proportions of the accommodation never fail to impress and tend to be more generous than modern houses. Ideal for busy family life, the house also lends itself well for entertaining & social gatherings.

Entrance Porch - 1.37m x 0.69m (4'6" x 2'3") - The grand main entrance to the house features the original twin oak front doors opening into a porch area with the original wide inner door leading into the welcoming reception hall. The porch features the original black & white chequer pattern floor tiles.

Reception Hall/Dining Room - 4.39m x 4.39m (14'5" x 14'5") - This space is reminiscent of a living hall found in country manor houses with its real open fire, cosy corner, high ceiling, original parquet flooring and oak panelled enclosed turned stairwell leading up to split level landing and galleried first floor.
Currently used as a dining room, this room could easily be returned to use as a snug with a couple of high-back chairs next to the fire.

Lounge - 6.01m x 4.22m (19'9" x 13'10") - Very generous double aspect lounge with a large bay window, coal effect gas fire in a decorative fireplace and original parquet flooring. The room is also fitted with LED mood uplighting, a 3D HD projector and 120 electrically operated cinema screen (can be purchased separately by negotiation). Wired for Sky, telephone line and also Cat5 ethernet cable from router location in kitchen breakfast room.

Games Room - 4.88m x 4.67m (16'0" x 15'4") - Originally the dining room because of the serving hatch through to the kitchen, this room is currently used as a games room. Double aspect views to garden at side from bay window and access to garden terrace via fully opening triple panel bi-fold doors. Features a substantial fireplace with coal-effect gas fire.

Breakfast Room - 4.39m x 3.28m (14'5" x 10'9") - The spacious open plan triple aspect kitchen & breakfast room really is the heart of the house, and also serves as the everyday entrance to the house through what is still labelled as the Tradesmans entrance on the original servant bells.

Kitchen - 6.45m x 2.69m (21'2" x 8'10") - The kitchen features a large central island with overhead lighting & concealed fridge, gas fired two-oven Aga, electric oven & hob, cooker hood extractor fan, Belfast sink, USB phone charging points and LED mood lighting throughout.
The windows are all double glazed and in addition to the tradesmans entrance, there is also a door to access the rear garden & terrace. Both these doors have been upgraded to modern composite doors to increase security and thermal efficiency over the original timber doors.

Utility Room - 2.69m x 2.26m (8'10" x 7'5") - Off the kitchen to the rear of the property is a very useful utility room which currently houses the gas fired central heating boiler, spaces for fridge-freezer unit, washing machine & tumble drier.

Cloakroom Wc - 3m x 1.68m (9'10" x 5'6") - The original pantry of the house has been converted into a downstairs WC and cloakroom, and still features the same original black and white chequer pattern tile floor as found in the front porch. Also in here is the alarm control box and access to a large under stairs storage area.

First Floor Landing - 4.42m x 3.38m (14'6" x 11'1") - The light, airy and generously wide staircase leads up onto a large landing off which are the 3 main bedrooms, the family bathroom and a short corridor to the fourth bedroom.

Bedroom One - 4.9m x 4.67m (16'1" x 15'4") - Used as the master bedroom since it benefits from the ensuite shower & WC, this large double aspect room has views to the side & rear gardens. Period fireplace. Wired for Sky multiroom and also Cat5 ethernet cable from router location in kitchen breakfast room.

En-Suite - 2.77m x 1.6m (9'1" x 5'3") - WC, shower & wash basin with views to garden at rear.

Bedroom Two - 6.1m x 4.22m (20'0" x 13'10") - Impressively spacious dual aspect bedroom with decorative fireplace and large bay window with views to front of property.

Bedroom Three - 4.52m x 4.42m (14'10" x 14'6") - Original fireplace and large bay window with views to front of property. Pull cord switch for servants bell still in operation (rings bell & moves indicator in the kitchen panel)

Loft Area - The loft space is cavernous and would be ideal for conversion into further habitable rooms if required. The layout of the existing staircase & landing means this could be extended to carry on upwards to the loft without having to sacrifice any of the existing rooms.
Outline plans have been done showing two configurations:
a)Master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with WC & open plan office/landing area
b)Two double bedrooms, shower room with WC & open plan office/landing area
The available space would be 41 square meters plus eaves storage.

Covered Storage Area - 4.66m x 6.64m (15'3" x 21'9") - To the rear of the garage is a large covered area, useful for further dry storage of garden equipment or bikes, etc.

Gardens - The grounds which extends to approximately 1/3 of an acre benefit from large entrance driveway that extends around the front of the property and along the side to the rear garage. Parking for multiple vehicles is easily possible.
A raised terrace area meets the property at the rear, accessed from the kitchen rear door or the games room bi-fold doors, and this then extends around the side of the garage to the raised undercover area behind.
