DESCRIPTION
With almost 4,500 sq.ft. of accommodation this stunning home was built in the early 1970's, for the late actor, singer/songwriter and comedian Norman Wisdom OBE.
The house has been cleverly designed to offer generous size rooms, maximising a light and airy feeling throughout. There is a fabulous outlook from the first floor west facing balcony across the neighbouring cricket field towards the paddock and beyond. The feeling of quality is also apparent all through this substantial home with particular attention paid to the hand-crafted solid wood internal doors and the attractive turrets either side of the entrance.
The property sits centrally within its beautiful formal grounds offering a high degree of privacy and seclusion, with a further paddock and sand school measuring nearly 3.5 acres.

OUTSIDE
Approached via cast iron gates, a private driveway sweeps around to the left and down towards the property continuing passed to the extensive garaging. There is ample turning and parking for several vehicles.

The well established and mature gardens are a fabulous feature of this stunning home, with the front being mainly laid to lawn and screened to all sides by mature trees, shrubs and hedging. There are also some attractive flower beds.

Within the garden is the swimming pool having an electric cover and a separate pool house, which houses the pool equipment, changing area and WC.

The level gardens continue at the rear where there is a large patio area ideal for enjoying the sunny aspect whilst alfresco dining, with steps leading to a terrace, which can also be accessed from the dining room. The formal gardens are screened by hedging and a variety of mature trees with fabulous walk through a pergola and flagstone paving leading to the paddock.

Measuring 43'9 x 40'6 the garage is the equivalent of four double garages combined, with two separate doors and there is further potential for living accommodation above, which currently consists of a bedroom, shower room and hobbies room.

Behind the garaging are two stable blocks with store room, tack room and hay barn. There is power and an outside water tap. Enclosed by post and rail fencing the paddocks to the rear are divided in two with a gate allowing access. The left hand paddock incorporates an enclosed sand school with running water and there is also a mobile shelter.

One of the huge benefits of this property is the direct access to some fabulous country walks from the garden via a gate to the side, as well as the near-by cricket and tennis clubs. There is also a children's play area within a few minutes walk and access to the village store and local bus routes.
