This unique property, dating back to the 1850’s, steeped in charm and character boasts stunning grounds and a wealth of original features in a property which offers very spacious accommodation and countryside views. Some might say a Romantic property…
The layout captures the imagination; the inner hallways and stairs flowing through the ground floor up to the second floor and down to the cellar, with sweeping banisters and a broad landing creating a feeling of opulence.
On the ground floor the chief reception room measures over 25ft, a real heart of the house centred on a beautiful ornate open fire place with a decorative carved wood surround and a stone hearth with attractive book cases to each side. A cosy fire to cuddle up in front of on a frosty February Valentine’s evening with a glass of champagne.
The formal dining room has an ornate ceiling rose, harking back to its heritage, with large windows and a serving hatch completing the room. The family room provides an informal space to relax with the family, with lockable doors providing access to a store room and the cloakroom.
Also on the ground floor the kitchen/ breakfast room is a delightful bright space of a great size if you tend to cook socially or like entertaining in a pleasant relaxed environment. Wooden floors and a stable door leading out to the garden continue the period theme. The kitchen includes a range of fitted units and built in appliances including an oven and gas hob, with space for a fridge freezer in the kitchen and for further appliance sin the utility room.
There are four bedrooms to the first floor, three measuring in excess of 14ft, and all benefiting from the characteristics which set this 1850’s home apart; high ceilings, sash windows and wonderful feature fireplaces to two of these four bedrooms giving the perfect cosy feel you would expect. Further benefits to these superb rooms are wash hand basins to three rooms, built in storage to one bedroom and pleasant views over the garden and beyond.
The luxurious refitted bathroom is a sympathetic mix of old and new with attractive natural tiling and dark wood flooring featuring a free standing roll top bath in addition to an enclosed walk in glass shower.
The second floor houses the two largest bedrooms; the grand rear aspect master with sash windows and an open fireplace has a dressing area through an archway and an en suite bathroom with his and hers wash basins, the second bedroom has an en suite shower room.
Externally there is a fully enclosed and mature landscaped garden with a pathway leading to the drive that provides parking for several vehicles. There is also a potting shed and store, a water tap, an air raid shelter and a double garage with power and lighting.
