Full description

A tall and sturdy wrought iron gate gives way to this handsome, Victorian gentleman's residence which stands proudly amidst extensive surrounding formal gardens and boasts generously sized accommodation. The pebble driveway provides parking for numerous cars and leads to a detached double garage.

Sandstone steps ascend to the sturdy timber panelled door with brass furniture and fanlight over and which opens to the portico with ornately tiled floor and shelters the inner glazed door. A beautiful example of generous Victorian architecture throughout, the hall is bedecked with mouldings and corbels to the high ceiling, deep skirting boards and casings, and a carved spindle staircase rising and turning to the first floor and having a door beneath which opens to the wine cellar.

The dual aspect principal lounge has a picture window to the front and a window to the side supplemented by both pendant and wall lighting for evening ambience. The polished oak-framed open fire surround with marble inset and hearth creates the focal point of this very spacious room and there are bookshelves to one side. On the opposite side of the hall is the dining room which also boasts a picture window overlooking the front garden and a similarly clad open fire surround with tiled hearth and steel fender.

To the rear of the property is the dual aspect sitting room with a superb array of bookshelves lining one wall and a charming Claygate brick fire surround and hearth with television point alongside. Amtico flooring follows from the rear hallway to the kitchen and the morning room, enhancing the light and airy flow of the space and melding perfectly with the well appointed Stuart Fraser kitchen cabinets in a shade of clotted cream with coordinating splash tiling. The granite effect work surfaces over have an inset one and a half bowl enamel sink unit with brass swan neck tap which is set beneath the window to the rear. Also inset is a Neff four ring ceramic hob with a canopy extractor fan above and a complementary eye-level oven, grill and microwave close by. Integrated appliances include an automatic dishwasher and a larder fridge. An opening leads to the morning room with a large square bay window to the side, vaulted ceiling and wiring for wall lights. From the kitchen, the rear hall has a door to the garden and access to the superbly spacious laundry room with vaulted ceiling, high level windows to three sides and a range of storage cabinets, a further sink unit and the wall mounted Ideal Classic gas central heating boiler. A further utility area provides under counter space for a washing machine and tumble dryer plus a sink unit. Also off the rear hall is the cloakroom with a two piece white suite of wall mounted wash basin and a w.c.

The first floor landing is illuminated by natural light streaming through the lengthy window to the rear and there is an access point to the insulated loft. The generously sized and dual aspect master bedroom has windows to front and side, fitted wardrobes and ample space for a range of free standing clothes storage furniture. The adjoining fully tiled en suite has a white three piece suite comprising a panelled bath with shower and screen over, pedestal wash hand basin, low flush w.c and there are linen cupboards to one wall housing the hot water cylinder tank. Bedroom two is a dual aspect and spacious double room with fitted wardrobes. Bedroom three is a further spacious double room with wiring for wall lights and overlooking the rear garden whilst bedroom four is a single room overlooking the frontage. These bedrooms are served by the partially tiled family bathroom with large opaque window, shower cubicle, pedestal wash hand basin and low flush w.c. plus a linen cupboard and heated towel rail.

A tall wrought iron gate gives way to the pebbled driveway which cuts a path through to the detached double garage with up and over door, power and light. A bank of high rhododendrons give privacy to the front lawn garden edged with box hedging and two distinctive yew trees sit to the boundary corners. A second wrought iron gate opens to the secluded rear garden with a York stone sun terrace overlooking the extensive lawn garden with central urn feature and which is encapsulated by much considered shrub and herbaceous border planting giving year round colour and form and offering a shady spot beneath a mature oak tree, a grand magnolia alongside, splashes of copper beech foliage adding depth and a honeysuckle laden arbour. A path meanders to a pebbled area with raised rose bed and central bay tree and has a decked seating area within this private sun-trap. Steps lead the way to a further and less formal lawn area within a small dell with a lovely old weeping willow and a path to the greenhouse which has seen better days.
