This wonderful home offers a range of character features, which include ornate ceiling cornicing and ornate fireplaces, together with the more modern-day convenience of gas fired central heating, underfloor insulation and double glazing. It also has instant hot water on turning on a tap anywhere in the house due to a secondary domestic water circulation, and a spacious Orangery in which to relax and entertain. The property is tastefully presented throughout and only an internal inspection will reveal the superb nature and tremendous character features of this fine home, which exudes a grand style, yet has a charming, homely feel. Externally, the property is set well back from the road and is complemented by beautifully presented and well stocked gardens with spacious, lawned and flagged areas, ideal for relaxing in the sunshine or al fresco entertaining, enjoying seclusion and fine aspects to the front. The property also enjoys private parking and a large, double, detached garage, previously a stables block.

Gardens

To the rear of the property hedging creates a hidden area of vegetable beds, just the thing to bring the 'Good Life' out in all of us and when you get tired, gravelled steps with wooden sleepers lead up to a most charming, original summer house, (that requires a little T.L.C.) just there for you to relax with a refreshing cup of tea. French doors open onto the spacious, level lawn and one can imagine the family playing croquet on a summers' afternoon, or alternatively there is an original, cast iron fireplace, ideal for getting wrapped up with a blanket in the winter with a fire and a hot flask, listening to your team on the radio or getting stuck into a good book.
The lawn is bordered by flower beds and a well-stocked rockery. A magnolia tree takes pride of place. A wide tarmacadam pathway leads around to the south facing front of the house where one is immersed in the wonderful, well stocked, garden vista that unfolds before your eyes with a large, Yorkshire stone flagged terrace, which is an ideal spot for al fresco entertaining or just affords the opportunity to just sit and relax in the sunshine.

Summerhouse

A terrific addition to a perfect garden is this timber and stone, glazed garden room with a terracotta, tiled floor. This is just a marvellous spot to sit and relax in all weathers with ample space for a table providing the opportunity for al fresco entertaining. One can imagine relaxing in the sunshine in the summer with a glass of your favourite, chilled tipple or wrapped up with a blanket in the winter with a heater and a hot flask listening to your team on the radio or getting stuck into a good book.

Parking
There is a large, tarmacadam driveway and an area of stone cobbles in front of the garage, which afford off road parking for several cars.
