An attractive and substantial listed village property enjoying a prominent location overlooking greensward and within walking distance of the many amenities.
The property is accessed via ornate wrought iron railings with a gate leading to a tiled path and covered portico. A large six panelled partly glazed door leads to the tiled reception hall which has an attractive arch flanked by bookcases which accesses the inner hall and has oak flooring throughout with a hatch leading to one of the cellars.
The inner hall is a charming space with exposed studwork to the walls and ceilings and also has solid oak flooring and attractive panelled doors leading to the reception rooms and stairs rising to the galleried landing.
The two principal reception rooms are situated to the front of the property overlooking the greensward and both have large rectangular bay windows providing a high degree of space and light.
The drawing room has an ornate carved marble fire surround with inset wood burning stove on a slate hearth, solid oak flooring, deep moulded skirting boards and cast iron radiators.
The family room has an ornate iron fire surround with granite hearth, oak parquet flooring and a delightful recessed Georgian display shelf with carved fluted columns on either side.
Side access is provided by a glazed and panelled door to a rear hall which directly accesses the drawing room and benefits from solid oak flooring, wall and ceiling timbers. A door then leads to the attractive kitchen which is fitted with a range of bespoke handmade units with solid hardwood work surfaces and a twin Belfast sink. The range cooker is housed within a recess and flanked by storage cupboards either side.
A square oak arch accesses the charming breakfast room which has flagstone flooring to match that of the kitchen and a large sash window to the side elevation. There is a delightful fireplace providing a focal point which has ornate tiling, brick hearth and a carved surround.
Further versatility is added by a spacious study situated to the side elevation of the property and practicality is catered for by a large laundry room fitted with a range of bespoke units with wooden work surfaces and twin sinks. A large rear hall has attractive panelling and gives way to a spacious cloakroom overlooking the courtyard.
Stairs rise to a large galleried landing which accesses all the bedrooms and has a large linen cupboard.
The principal bedroom is situated to the front elevation of the property and has attractive original oak floorboards and a Victorian fireplace flanked by an anti-room which provides access to one of the other bedrooms. A panelled door gives access to a dressing room beyond which is a lavishly appointed en-suite shower room. The second bedroom, also situated to the front elevation of the property provides views to the greensward and has an attractive Victorian cast iron fire grate with detailed tiling and a carved wooden surround.
There is a guest bedroom situated to the rear of the property which has a part vaulted ceiling, solid oak flooring and wardrobe space. There is an en-suite cloakroom with wash hand basin, w.c and a free standing slipper bath on a raised plinth.
There are two remaining bedrooms on this floor both of which have large sash windows and these are served by a well appointed family bathroom which has an oval ended bath set in a granite plinth adjacent to which are matching his and hers wash hand basins with storage beneath.
There is an attic bedroom with window and wardrobe space on the second floor.
To the front elevation there is detailed and attractive wrought iron railings behind which are established and geometrically arranged yew and box clipped gardens which have roses as a centrepiece. Both these beds flank the path leading to the front door and provide a very attractive feature.
A five bar oak gate with paved entrance gives access to an extensive gravel parking area which is flanked by raised herbaceous borders which have vertical oak sleepers as edging. Two large fir trees provide focal points to this part of the garden.
Adjacent to the drive is an extensive workshop/storage building which gives access to a plant room and could readily convert to further living accommodation if required (subject to planning). This is a two storey building and provides a great deal of versatility and scope for a variety of uses.
The rear gardens are an absolute delight and have been laid out in a symmetrical and planned fashion. A large expanse of lawn is flanked by neatly clipped box hedging beyond which are a variety of English roses and herbaceous plants to provide year round interest.
Beyond this a large beech hedge segregates another area of the garden which is then distinctly divided by terraces and brick paths to provide attractive and private family entertaining spaces. There are two sculpted bay trees beyond which is further clipped box hedge leading to the vegetable garden. To the rear of the garden is a purpose made studio/office building which is equipped with power and has a log burning stove. It is ideal for those that seek a home office away from the main dwelling.
There is a pretty rear courtyard which has sandstone paving and raised brick planters. It provides a perfect formal entertaining area and has manicured box plants and pleached lime trees which provide points of interest.
