Vale Croft Ash ValeOur local area is steeped in a wealth of aviation history and this wonderful detached house presents an amazing opportunity to be part of history, as it is the former home of Samuel F Cody (the first man to fly an aeroplane in Britain).  

This exceptional home has been refurbished to a high standard with oak floors and re plastering to the walls and benefits from three spacious reception rooms and four double bedrooms.   

As you approach the front gate you are immediately greeted with a traditional black and red tiled pathway leading to a pretty veranda.  From here a hard wood front door opens into a wonderfully light and airy entrance hall where you can’t help notice the original arched mouldings, ceiling cornices and the galleried landing.  

Vale Croift LoungeThe lounge presents a stunning bay window, high ceilings and an ornate solid fuel fire place and the second reception room also features a bay window and a fireplace.  The dining room opens into a luxury fitted kitchen with cream cottage style cabinets, a butler sink, quality appliances and heated quarry tiled flooring.   

As you ascend the staircase you are welcomed by the striking galleried landing with double aspect views.  There are four double bedrooms with the master presenting a beautiful bay window and a well appointed en suite.  The luxurious bathroom suite contains a lovely Victorian style, free standing, roll top bath with a telephone shower attachment in addition to a shower cubicle.

To the front of the property there is a shingle drive that is secured by a five bar gate providing parking for several vehicles. To the rear there is a good size garden that extends around the side of the house.
