This 1905 built family home has been painstakingly renovated and extended by our clients over recent years to create a quite exceptional property, making the very best of its generous grounds and its convenient location in this thriving village. Furthermore, the house comes with a detached period cottage in the grounds that offers new owners the chance to create superb annex or office.
Renovations and fittings include the reconditioning of all the sash windows, the integration of media wiring throughout, shutters being added to many of the windows, iron radiators in most rooms, new central heating systems and the re-conditioning of the fireplaces and the picture rails.
The Ground Floor
A rear extension has allowed the creation of a triple aspect kitchen/living space where no expense has been spared. This includes, Silestone Quartz surfaces over Dovetail units, a heated porcelain floor, a Butlers sink, a gas range and an electric oven. Bi-fold doors lead to a south facing terrace whilst tall windows on the eastern elevation provide a view to the garden and cottage.
There are two separate reception rooms both of which have bay windows facing the front and log burners set into red brick chimneys. The drawing room measures 22-feet and also has bi-fold doors to the terrace. Other ground floor accommodation includes a beautiful heated entrance hall and a WC.
The First Floor
The vaulted master suite was created from the extension and has views of the church, his-and-hers walk through wardrobes with shoe racks and stylish en suite with large shower. The remaining three double bedrooms are also beautifully finished with the guest bedroom featuring a further en suite. The family bathroom is equally well designed including a large walk in shower and separate freestanding bath.
Located at the rear of the garden, Ash Cottage already provides extremely attractive storage space however with investment into it could be converted to become a two-bedroom annex, a large office or even a holiday let.
The total plot measures just over a third of an acre with the majority being laid to lawn albeit with a good number of trees and hedges which help to provide privacy. An Indian Sandstone patio follows the rear and side of the house.
To the front there is a shingled driveway that allows parking for six vehicles. A detached garage could accommodate a seventh vehicle and also houses the boiler and the heating system. There is a room above the garage with further potential.
