Description

Lister Place is a seven bedroom Queen Anne house laid out over three floors in need of modernisation set in established grounds of about 1 acre with a superb range of outbuildings in this sought after village.

The principal accommodation comprises on the ground floor: a sitting room with fine mouldings; drawing room with alabaster fireplace and shuttered windows; inner hall; dining room with inglenook; kitchen with AGA cooking range; back kitchen; lobby with cloakroom; and side porch. There is a small basement with three cellar compartments. The first floor provides the principal bedroom suite with en suite bathroom and dressing room; a study on a mezzanine floor level, two spacious bedrooms in the front elevation of the property; back landing and bathroom. Winding stairs lead to second floor accommodation with four bedrooms; bathroom and attic room.

The house is constructed in brick with Ashlar dressings, a plain tiled roof with four gable stacks and stone coped gables with kneelers. The fine central doorway is approached by two semi circular steps and has a plain Ashlar surround and segmental pediment. In about 1919 a flat roof tower was built on the north side of the house with ancillary accommodation. In around 1972 when the present owners acquired the property, extensive alterations were carried out and then further alterations in the 1980's under the supervision of Francis Johnson, a well known architect specialising in the Georgian period. He is responsible for the porch, the sitting room alterations with fine mouldings and panels and the en suite bathroom.

The outbuildings comprise The Coach House And Dovecote with games room and stable with original stalls and herring bone brick floor, tack room, game larder, potting shed, open fronted boiler room, former tack room with rooms over, all of which create an attractive courtyard to the side of the house.

NOTE: The east gable end room measuring 15' x 13'6" approximately and known as the Apple Loft is a flying freehold.

The Gardens - These are divided into a series of separate gardens as was the custom when the house was built and never significantly altered. The grass tennis court area is over 100 years old. There are many interesting trees including Tulip tree, Mulberry, Laburnum, Spanish Chestnut and Copper Beech. The interesting fruit trees include Orange Pippin, three Bramleys, various pear, plum, redcurrant and soft fruits. The Yew tree bushes are always admired as is the tall Hornbeam hedgerow. There are two ancient Cypress trees.
