A greatly extended and beautifully refurbished 5 bedroom detached character home on a 0.3 acre south facing plot close to the railway station. The property was originally the squash court to the neighbouring Manor House which was built in the early 1900s and then converted into a small detached cottage in the 1950s. The present owners bought the house in 2009 and virtually rebuilt the property adding two extensions to either side and a full width extension across the rear. Refurbishment works include a completely new roof, re-wiring, re-plumbing, new timber framed casement windows and bi-folding doors, new bathrooms and kitchen and they have also incorporated an energy efficient central heating system including a solar and wood-fuelled hot water system, under-floor heating and a rainwater harvester which supplies the WCs and outside tap.
The accommodation on the ground floor is arranged around a large reception hall with a galleried landing over and comprises: a cloakroom, an L-shaped living room with wood burning stove connected to the hot water system, a south facing main sitting room with wood burning stove and bi-folding doors out to the rear terrace, a substantial triple aspect family sized kitchen/living area with underfloor heating, fitted with a range of handmade Shaker style units with granite tops, a central island, a stable door and bi-folding doors out to the south facing terrace. In addition, there is a walk-in larder, a separate utility room and a ground floor bedroom 5/study with en-suite shower room and doors out to the rear terrace. On the first floor: there is a master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, an extensive range of built-in wardrobes and en-suite shower room, a guest bedroom with an en-suite shower room, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Outside: Court House is approached from the road through twin wooden gates and a long driveway leading up to the house and a detached double garage. There are well laid out front gardens and access via either side of the house leads to the rear garden which enjoys a sunny southerly aspect and comprises: a full width paved terrace, a large ornamental pond, an expanse of lawn, numerous mature specimen trees and ornamental shrubs, productive vegetable garden and in one corner there is a greenhouse, potting shed and a further useful shed currently used as a small gym (these buildings offer great potential for replacement to create a garden chalet etc.).
