A simply stunning period property, this 5 bedroom detached Victorian house spans 3270 sq. ft. and has already been fully restored. It has beautiful well-stocked gardens of 3.75 acres (tbc) and private access to a further 26 acres of woodland. There is further potential for a loft extension STPP and planning permission has been granted for a single storey extension to the side of the kitchen/breakfast room.
Entering via electric gates, the property is surrounded by mature trees and rhododendrons giving an air of seclusion and privacy rarely found. An attractive Victorian family house, it is believed to date from 1901 and to be one of a pair originally built for two sons to have one each.
A traditional tile roofed covered porch frames the double fronted bay windows situated either side of the part glazed front door. Inside the gracious hall has panelled doors to the reception rooms with the stairs ahead. To the left, the lounge has a high ceiling, picture rail, sash windows and the fireplace has an ornamental wooden surround and tiles as characterised by the Victorian period. To the front is the large bay window and this, together with two side windows and doors, make it a bright and airy room. The doors give access to a terrace providing one of many seating areas and, in this instance, looking out onto the more formal gardens. Proceeding from the hallway, to the right is the dining room again with a feature bay window to the front, a high ceiling, picture rail and panelled doors. For formal dining the room could accommodate 18-20 people with ease. Moving on, the study/office also faces to the front of the property with a sash window and plenty of space for several computers with work space on either side. There is also an interior glazed window which looks into the games/family room.
Returning to the hallway, walking towards the kitchen to the right is a walk-in under stairs storage area with cloakroom ahead. In keeping with a period property, the WC has a high level cistern together with a basin and cupboard housing the immersion heater. Internal stable doors are a delightful feature leading into the kitchen/breakfast room with a further stable door leading out onto a fabulously sunny terrace. This is an ideal area for eating and socialising outside whilst admiring both formal and informal areas such as the Italian garden with its pots and paving and also the English garden with delphiniums, lupins, peonies and poppies together with far reaching views across to the woodland. Wherever you are in this house, your eyes are drawn to its stunning gardens with a variety of outlooks all of which are superb.
The kitchen/breakfast room was re-fitted less than a year ago and has a quietly understated sophistication. There is thermostatically controlled underfloor heating and the flooring is light grey Italian marble with mid grey larder cupboards and display cupboards lining the walls of both kitchen and breakfast room. Work surfaces and splashbacks are dark granite complimenting the overall colour scheme. There is a range cooker comprising gas hob and electric cooker also with an additional electric oven. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, a fridge, a microwave and a drinks fridge. The latter is sited in the breakfast bar which has space for three stools.
The accommodation upstairs comprises 5 double bedrooms, 2 en-suites and a family bathroom. The configuration can easily be adjusted to suit varying family needs or those of guests or teenagers. The spacious master bedroom has a high ceiling, picture rail with windows to the front and paired sash windows to the side. The en-suite bathroom has a deep sash window to the front, a white suite comprising a bath, WC and basin together with attractive blue and white wall and floor tiles.
