Description

The Lane House is a beautifully-presented detached family house enjoying a delightful tucked-away position within mature grounds at the end of a long private drive, shared with just one other property.

The light and spacious accommodation comprises a recently completed open plan kitchen/breakfast/dining room, designed to make the most of the lovely setting, three reception rooms, a study and six well-proportioned bedrooms.

The generously-proportioned and adaptable living space has good ceiling heights, contemporary fixtures and fittings, newly-installed carpets and under floor heating. The property has Karndean flooring in the kitchen/breakfast/dining room.

The character features in the oldest part which is believed to date back to the 1800s, include some aged beams and timbers and pretty fireplaces.

The dual-aspect sitting room open out to the garden and the good-sized study to the front. The striking newly-installed kitchen/breakfast room has large bi-fold doors which lead out to the garden. The open plan to a 26’ x 14’5” dining room creates a superb family space which links through to the family room. The kitchens integrated Neff appliances include twin electric ovens, a large ceramic hob, a dishwasher and a Bosch American-style fridge/freezer.

The property has a separately fitted utility room which has a cloakroom off.

The master bedroom includes an en suite shower room. There is a further five double bedrooms, all enjoying an attractive outlook. Two well-appointed bathrooms complete the accommodation.

Gardens and grounds:
The gardens are a superb environment for children and animals, extending to about 1.29 acres to the rear of the house with lawns, well-stocked herbaceous borders and swathes of rhododendrons and azaleas. A wild area to the side and many mature trees and shrubs create a lovely back-drop for the property.

A timber lodge with storage space and a separate studio (in need of some repair) offer useful additional space away from the house.

A detached double garage and additional parking space lie to the front of the property.

Square Footage: 3,109 sq ft
Acreage: 1.29 Acres
