An IMPOSING and substantial 5 BEDROOMED ‘Wells’ cottage in fair condition providing FAMILY SIZED ACCOMMODATION with the opportunity for further improvement, set in FORMAL GARDENS of approximately 2 ACRES along with surrounding WOODLAND of circa 5.4 ACRES. The property is nestled off the beaten track in a backwater within the sought-after village of West Chiltington. This characterful home has SEVERAL OUTBUILDINGS of various uses as well as an enclosed outdoor HEATED SWIMMING POOL. Offered to the market with NO ONWARD CHAIN. This characterful L-shaped ‘Wells’ home, built in the 1930s, has been extended over the years to provide rooms of significant size along with versatility and offers great potential for further improvement. The MAIN RECEPTION HALL is part panelled and laid with solid wood-strip flooring having a CLOAKROOM and deep coat cupboard positioned directly off. TWO PRINCIPAL ROOMS are accessed off the hall, the vast and impressive DRAWING ROOM which bears a beamed ceiling and enjoys two specific areas, sitting and formal dining, separated by an imposing exposed brick, central chimney stack featuring an open fireplace.  The extensive KITCHEN, has an open plan BREAKFAST AREA laying to the south-westerly aspect and is comprehensively fitted with off-white Shaker style units and contrasting black granite-effect work surfaces and incorporates two separate ceramic butler style sinks with swan neck taps, with freestanding appliances including a range-style cooker, an American style fridge/freezer, a dishwasher and wine cooler.  Off the kitchen is a UTILITY ROOM complete with a deep walk-in storage cupboard, in addition to two fitted units along with an American style washing machine and separate tumble dryer.  A particularly bright and grand FAMILY ROOM lays open to the opposite side of the kitchen forming a vast section and lays to the south-west elevation whilst displaying several windows, one being a circular bay.  An elegant and ornate stone fireplace fitted with a wood burning stove creates a focal point to this considerable space and leads on to a CONSERVATORY laying beyond accessed through double doors.  The ORIGINAL ENTRANCE DOOR to this cottage, with its typical Wells’ INNER VESTIBULE, also opens into this family room and provides another handy access point. A wide and impressive, exposed solid wood staircase, rises to a PART GALLERIED LANDING to one side and a PART PANELLED CORRIDOR to the other where the PRINCIPAL WING is positioned, comprising of a triple aspect MASTER BEDROOM with a connecting door to a FURTHER DOUBLE ROOM, ideal as a nursery or a dressing room, with a FULLY MOSAIC TILED BATHROOM directly off and complete with a twin seated jacuzzi bath, dual counter-top wash hand basins and a low-level WC.  To the opposing first floor landing are THREE FURTHER DOUBLE BEDROOMS, a beautifully re-fitted FAMILY BATHROOM fully tiled in a natural stone effect and laid with a solid wood-strip floor, complete with a Victorian style suite including a freestanding roll-top claw foot bath, pedestal wash-hand basin, a low-level WC and a contemporary style chrome ring towel holder.  There is also a further re-fitted SEPARATE SHOWER ROOM with a generously sized corner cubicle and a wall-hung vanity wash hand basin, along with a SEPARATE AND ADJACENT WC.  TWO STORAGE CUPBOARDS, one single and one double, complete this first floor landing.A long and private single track driveway, shared with two other properties, leads to the cottage where it climbs a gentle slope and opens to an EXTENSIVE FORECOURT WITH PARKING FOR AMPLE VEHICLES.  Vast and formal park-like landscaped grounds, approximately 2 ACRES in size, surround the property, and have been cleverly tiered with a heated and enclosed SWIMMING POOL sited to the elevated rear aspect.  The pool’s boiler and pump room is located within a storeroom forming part of the main house which is accessed externally, and also where the cottage’s main boiler is also located.  Near to the pool is a WOODEN CHALET, fitted with a kitchenette and shower room, and provides temporary guest accommodation, while further scattered outbuildings of various use include a detached timber clad DOUBLE GARAGE, a SINGLE DETACHED BRICK BUILT GARAGE with an adjacent storage room and a further WOODEN CABIN.  Beyond these formal grounds to the south easterly position, lays the property’s WOODLAND, which we believe, extends to 5.4 ACRES and enjoys a meandering stream.
