Blue Boar House is a substantial listed village house enjoying a central location, within easy reach of all the amenities. The property affords exceptionally versatile living space of a characterful nature that is well-suited to a variety of lifestyles, with the option of an integral annexe or as two separate sections of accommodation or for multi-generational styles of living.
The current owners rarely use the front entrance door and prefer to access the property from the back via two entrance porches, one leading to the annexe, the other to the main house. The larger portion of the property on the easterly elevation, is home to the generously proportioned kitchen/breakfast room, which has a dual aspect with views to the grounds. It is extensively fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units, tiled floor, exposed beams to the ceiling, a large walk in cupboard, stairs rising to the first floor and a door through to the inner hall. The inner hall is particularly appealing, with a wide staircase rising to the first floor and a door to a cloakroom.
The sitting room is situated in the centre of the property and has a red brick fireplace with oak lintel above, oak panelling to dado height and French doors that access a conservatory to the rear of the property. A lobby with extensive cupboard space joins the sitting room to the dining room, which is situated to the front of elevation of the property and has views to the village via a large leaded light window and a sliding door to a lobby which leads to the front door.
The family room is a particularly impressive space and has a heavy oak frame on display throughout and a fireplace to the flank wall with exposed red brickwork. An inner hall with extensive storage directly accesses a second kitchen which is fitted with a range of base and wall units, a tiled floor and a single bowl sink.
The first floor is equally impressive and displays fine period features throughout and can readily be used as two separate dwelling units if required. The principal suite is situated above the kitchen/breakfast, and accessed via a separate staircase, it has a dual aspect and enjoys pleasant views over the grounds and beyond, with an en-suite shower room with ample storage.
The remainder of the first floor can be accessed via two further staircases, one from the inner hall, the other from the rear lobby. There are five further bedrooms, two of which are situated on the rear elevation, the other three on the front elevation. They all display many fine period features which include attractive exposed oak frame work, vaulted ceilings and exposed red brick chimney breasts. These are served by a well-appointed family bathroom.
Blue Boar house is approached via twin gates and a pedestrian gate from St James Street which lead to an extensive drive, beyond which is an oversized detached double garage equipped with power and light and an inspection pit. There are numerous outbuildings which include a substantial workshop, car port and further storage building.
The gardens are truly impressive, and benefit from a southerly aspect, allowing them to benefit from the all-day sun. There are large expanses of well-kept lawn, which are interspersed with well stocked herbaceous and shrub borders which provide year round interest and colour. There are extensive terraces which are ideal for large scale entertaining, one of which is covered and benefits from a westerly aspect. A number of mature specimen trees provide focal points and shade.
It would be fair to say that it is unusual to find a centrally located village property with the extent of outside space that Blue Boar House offers, and as such this property offers a truly unique opportunity.
