Price Range £850,000 to £875,000 A handsome and beautifully presented detached 1930’s home offering versatile, light and spacious accommodation extending in total to 3,448 sq. ft. occupying a stunning plot of about 2.2 acres adjoining woodland and countryside. A GOOD FLOW Woodhill dates back to around 1930 but has been extended over the years. It is beautifully presented and today offers four or five bedrooms, depending on how its owners choose to have it arranged. It is entered via a porch and then a central hallway. To the left is the spacious drawing room, which has a bay window and inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove. To the right is a ground floor shower and cloak room, then a dining or games room and family room. The games room could be used as an extra bedroom if required. The family room opens into the conservatory and the long kitchen, where there is also a utility room. “I liked the way the house flowed as soon as I saw it – with rooms leading nicely into each other,” he says. LIGHT FANTASTIC The drawing room is triple aspect, with a glass door out to the front of the house. “This room has a very nice feel about it,” he says. “It is such a light room and a great place for everyone to congregate when we have friends and family here.” Upstairs at Woodhill, there are four main bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe, while one of the guest rooms opens on to a balcony, which looks out over the beautiful grounds. “This is a lovely room but the master bedroom is also very nice as it is such a good size,” he adds. SPRING COLOUR It is the grounds, however, that have brought the most pleasure to the owners since they arrived at the house. “We have had some wonderful times with friends and family out beside the pool on sunny days or having barbecues – our grandchildren really love it here,” he says. “The woodland areas are very beautiful and are home to lots of wildlife. In the springtime, they are carpeted in bluebells.” Ducks and even a peacock sometimes wander through the grounds and it has been fun to grow fruit and vegetables. “I have a polytunnel and raised beds, where I grow everything from runner beans to tomatoes and in season we are pretty much self-sufficient.” SCOPE FOR EXTENSION Outbuildings at the property include changing rooms for the swimming pool and a single garage, which is currently used as a workshop. There is a second double garage, which has a multi-purpose space above it. Subject to the relevant planning permissions this could have all sorts of uses. “It could be a good office for someone who wants to work from home or it could possibly be converted into a holiday let,” he suggests.
