A peaceful amble down Torwood Lane with delightful countryside views, the only distraction, an inquisitive pony introducing itself from the fields...

Torwood house is set back 100 yards from the lane, occupying a substantial plot with lawns, outbuildings and woodland. The unique residence emanates grandeur and sense of history. This magnificent property provides sumptuous family accommodation incorporating luxurious and traditional features, boasting 1800 square feet of living space.

An ornate and suitably elaborate stone porch welcomes you to this special home setting the tone and flavour of what awaits within...

A substantial solid oak front door opens to a sizeable vestibule, stylishly tiled, with lots of room for hanging coats, original panelled double doors lead onto a breath taking entrance hall with high ceilings and beautiful wood flooring. The current owner has meticulously refurbished this stunning home with incredible attention to detail ensuring the grandness and splendour of the house is maintained while modern building standards and practices adhered too. A hand crafted mahogany staircase ascends to the upper floors, the house is generously spread, each room suitably proportioned for its purpose.

The formal dining room is open to the entrance hall with intricate cornicing and fabulous 16” skirting boards, a wonderfully restored serving hatch conjures images of Victorian splendour. There is a lovely outlook across the rear gardens, the border of the woodland stretches beyond sight, the vastness of the grounds begins to dawn on the beholder.

The fabulous sitting room has a relaxing ambience with floor to ceiling bookshelves, log burner and original parquet flooring. The bright hallway leads onto the third double bedroom, decorated in a contemporary fashion, with beautiful double-glazed sash windows and handy wash basin.

An exquisite bathroom has been fitted on the ground floor, with separate W.C, a particular triumph with opulent fittings and sublime quality. The stylish finish and superb workmanship are evident throughout. Completely remodelled and thoughtfully planned the open plan kitchen offers a versatile welcoming space. Fully fitted with a range of NEFF appliances including Hob, Double Oven, fridge freezer and dishwasher, solid wood work surfaces and ample storage cupboards.

Side access is via an attractive 'Dutch door' to a wonderful courtyard space that enjoys the early sun, perfect for a morning cup of coffee. Stairs lead to a half landing and the delightful second bedroom (again with handy wash basin and separate W.C) this area is flooded with natural light from the enormous sky window emanating from the loft. The stairway winds onwards to the Master bedroom. At 19'6 ft x 18'8 ft the spectacular master suite is an extremely desirable space, with en-suite shower and wash basin, fireplace, sash windows (with more stunning woodland views) and parquet flooring.

The communal gardens are particularly impressive, enjoying privacy with patio areas, water feature and woodland. The 18'8 ft x 16'4 ft double garage completes the accommodation with more parking available on the sweeping gravel driveway.
