Dovers is an interesting property with red brick elevations under a tiled roof and enjoys a spectacular position tucked away within this sought after village, it is believed to be the former coach house to a larger dwelling in the street and has been converted to provide characterful and flexible accommodation.

The property is approached via a stable door leading to an entrance porch providing storage space. Beyond this is the inner hall which has wooden floorboards and exposed ceiling beams. The principal reception room is situated on the South and Westerly aspect of the property and as such benefits from the afternoon and evening sun along with delightful views to the garden. This charming room has a part vaulted ceiling and exposed framework to the walls and ceiling with a large red brick chimney breast and tiled hearth. French doors on the Southerly aspect lead to a covered brick entertaining terrace.

The accommodation is arranged in a way that allows for flexible living space. The kitchen is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units, green enamel Aga, quarry tiled floor, 'Neff' oven and grill and single bowl sink. Adjacent to the kitchen is a spacious dining room with oak floor. A tiled boot room is accessed via a door from the garden and from the boot room is a panelled door which leads to a pantry. There is a snug which has a range of built-in shelves and cupboards and directly accesses via French doors via the conservatory taking in views to the grounds.

The accommodation is particularly versatile and there is a further reception room which is currently used as a study but would double up as a third bedroom if required. The principal bedroom is situated to the rear of the property and takes in wonderful views to the grounds and has built-in wardrobes and a door to an en-suite bathroom which has a tiled surround and matching white suite. The second bedroom is situated to the rear of the property allowing it to benefit from the views to the grounds and a built-in wardrobe. The second bedroom and study/bedroom 3 are served by a fully tiled shower room with a matching white suite.

Dovers is approached via a private drive which is owned by the property and this is flanked by mature trees to include sweet chestnut and willow. A five bar gate accesses an extensive parking area which has a raised circular brick bed and red brick walling to the side. There is a detached double garage equipped with power and light and accessed from the drive.

Dovers benefits from a substantial outbuilding which has been used as a studio and office but would readily provide ancillary accommodation (subject to planning). This building comprises two practically sized reception rooms, one of which has a triple aspect and the other takes in views to the rear garden. It is accessed via a lobby, beyond which is a shower room with tiled cubicle and matching white suite. An exterior door accesses a storage room which could be incorporated into the aforementioned building by way of a new entrance.

Beyond the studio/office is a further workshop/garden store which has weather clad elevations under a tiled roof.

The delightful South and West facing grounds take advantage of the all day sun and there is a raised brick terrace accessed from the principal reception room which is covered by a pergola and has climbing roses and a vine to provide shade. Large expanses of lawn are interspersed with densely stocked herbaceous borders that provide year round colour and interest. To the rear of the garden is a vegetable plot with raised beds and a number of soft fruit bushes to include loganberry and gooseberry and these are complemented by a number of fruit trees.

In the South-Westerly corner is a wooded area which has a number of mature native trees which flank a pond and provide a haven for wildlife. To the Westerly elevation is an area of formal garden with manicured lawns, a greenhouse, further fruit trees and a magnolia tree.

It would be fair to say that Dovers represents a unique opportunity within a highly desirable village to acquire a substantial detached property which provides extensive scope for enlargement subject to the necessary consents.

Dovers owns the drive but the adjacent property, Dovers Barn has a right of access over the drive. There is a TPO on a lime tree in the garden.
