This handsome detached property is an excellent example of how a beautiful character property can retain its charm whilst meeting modern needs for space and convenience.

Located on a large mature private plot, with views over neighbouring lakes, the property is in one of the most sought after roads in the village of Yateley, within walking distance of local shops and schools.

Approached by a five bar gate and large shingle driveway the property’s heritage is immediately apparent; the doorway having a wooden canopied entrance flanked by flowering shrubs such as hydrangeas, the brick chimney protruding from the roof and original bow windows to either side of the front door. Even the roofline has an appeal, indicating the quirks and individuality found in a property of this age.

The living room measures over 20ft and, on the south westerly facing side comprises in part a conservatory with views over the rear garden. The focal point of the living room is the open fireplace with exposed red brick chimney breast and a wooden beam mantle.  The timber ceiling beams continue to hint at the heritage of the home whilst light decor and carpet give the room a bright and sophisticated appeal.

The dining room has a set of doors which open out to the decking and garden creating a delightful space which invites in all the colour and light from the garden. Simply and traditionally styled, the dining room has wooden flooring, neutral wall colour, exposed timber ceiling beams and a wooden dado rail.

The study and family room are both at the front of the house, benefiting from the afore mentioned bow windows; similarly styled with wooden flooring, exposed beams, brick fireplaces and neutral decor. These versatile rooms provide space for a home office, study or library, informal family room, hobby or music space. There is also a shower room to the ground floor.

The ‘L’ shaped kitchen provides space for an extensive range of fitted units and space for appliances. Traditionally styled, the units feature carved wooden doors and glass fronted display cabinets. The flooring is of a traditional farmhouse style tile and there is practical part tiling to the walls. The walls and ceiling are painted in a bright off white colour, the natural warm colours of the units, exposed beams and flooring creating a warm and inviting room. There is plenty of space for a farmhouse kitchen table for breakfast or informal dining in this room with agreeably large windows affording views to the side of the property.

All four bedrooms are found on the first floor, all a good size with built in wardrobes and lovely views over the surrounding area. There is a continuation of character features including exposed beams and a cast iron fireplace to bedroom three. The family bathroom is well fitted and includes a white suite, heated towel rail and ceramic tiled walls.

The large rear garden is predominantly lawn with a south easterly facing partly covered decking area, perfect to sit out and enjoy a morning coffee or keep an eye on children playing in the garden. Bordered by mature beds of flowers and shrubs the garden is enclosed by fencing and mature trees providing a great deal of privacy. There is a small swimming pool surrounded by paving, a timber summer house, log store and garden shed, providing all that may be desired to enjoy the garden all year round.

To the front of the house the driveway and double garage provide plenty of parking and turning space.

It’s often the little details that really set apart an older property; quirky windows, storage spaces and traditional craftsmanship for example. To truly appreciate all the details a viewing is highly recommended if this property may be of interest to you.
