Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This distinctive, striking and individual residence dates originally from 1893. Throughout its existence it has always enjoyed wonderful views to both front and rear and in the last three and half years has been comprehensively refurbished. In addition to the house itself there are also attractive landscaped gardens and a fabulous two storey detached outbuilding to the rear that is known as The Coach House. Planning permission exists to extend the house at ground floor level and to convert the outbuilding to ancillary cottage.

The refurbishment of the house has taken place with considerable care and sensitivity. The works carried out include a complete re-wire and total internal refurbishment. There is a fantastic blend of original period features with sensitive modern twists and the layout is most conducive to modern day family life.

At ground floor level the accommodation opens with an entrance porch that leads to the entrance hall. The hall has a delightful staircase and original Minton tiled flooring. The two reception rooms each have a lovely bay window and period fireplaces. The living room is a particularly impressive proportion extending to 27ft in length. Accessed from the rear hall is a fabulous contemporary kitchen. The kitchen was put together with tremendous thought and care, has white granite preparation surfaces and aspects over the rear garden. It was fitted with an uncompromising commitment to quality. It should also be noted that there is a very useful cellar that can be accessed via steps from the ground floor.

At first floor level there are three large double bedrooms, each with period features and lovely rural views. Bedroom four is a smaller single bedroom/study with lovely views to the front. The family bathroom is particularly impressive being of generous proportion and having a period style roll top bath as its focal point.

Externally to the front there is ample off road parking and turning space. The rear garden has been landscaped and comprises Indian stone patio and a lovely area of lawn. The Coach House is located towards the rear of the boundary. Externally there is also a useful laundry/utility room.

The two storey outbuilding known as The Coach House can be utilised in a number of different ways. In its present format it provides very useful and extensive storage space. If the planning permission was implemented a high quality and spacious ancillary cottage could be created providing a minimum of two bedrooms. When complete the cottage would be the ideal subject for regular family visitors, dependent relatives or for those with children returning from university. In addition other alternative uses potentially include games room, art studio or home office.

A viewing is essential to appreciate the many features of merit to this splendid individual property.
