Full description

A fascinating Grade II listed property that has been uniquely converted to create flexible living accommodation.

Introduction - The Old Laundry originally formed part of the Holbrook Grange Estate, built for the Caldecott family in 1800 and the estate was subsequently split into three attractive separate dwellings, each providing a unique living experience. The Old Laundry lies at the end of a private drive in a secluded plot of 0.31 of an acre and has been dramatically improved by the present owners with the careful conversion of the stable block, connected to the main house, now offering flexible accommodation, including four well proportioned bedrooms, a large first floor studio with vaulted ceiling, two bathrooms and two kitchens, making the home suitable for two small families or indeed an independent family member who requires their own space. There is also an orangery, conservatory and a sitting room with delightful views of the gardens and neighbouring countryside. The house has a highly efficient bio mass wood pellet boiler and solar thermal panels providing hot water and central heating. There is off road parking for up to four cars. Around the house there are several seating areas to capture the sunshine at different times of day. The garden is designated agricultural land, and has some wonderful lifestyle opportunities with chickens and productive raised vegetable plots, alongside the attractive countryside environment.

Accommodation Summary -

Ground Floor - The entrance hall has a maple floor with a glazed entrance door, an ash staircase that leads to the first floor studio. Further doors provide access to the orangery and bedrooms three and four. There is also a compact MCZ Musa Hydro 15kw wood pellet boiler, which is staggeringly efficient, with a certified efficiency of up to 96%. The boiler produces 13KW to the thermal store, and 2KW of convection heat. This pellet boiler, supplemented by heat from two solar thermal panels, provides central heating throughout the house and abundant hot water. It is also an attractive focal point as you walk in to the hall. The two bedrooms overlook a cobbled courtyard. Both have double-glazed windows and radiator heating. The orangery is a delightful place to sit overlooking the terrace, driveway and paddocks beyond. It has a double-glazed canopied roof and windows, and a radiator. From the hallway there is a door that leads to the bathroom, which has a white suite with panelled bath and thermostatically controlled shower over, low level WC and a pedestal wash hand basin. The first floor has an extremely useful studio with maple floor, vaulted ceiling and an abundance of natural light coming from the four large small-paned windows. There is independent access provided via an external staircase through an attractive leaded glazed door. The kitchen enjoys views of the gardens and driveway with two double glazed windows. There is a one and a half stainless steel sink unit with cupboards under, and a connection point for a washing machine.
