This attractive detached period property enjoys a glorious rural location surrounded by open farmland. The property has painted rendered elevations under a clay tiled roof and an appealing façade.
A glazed and panelled front door leads to a spacious entrance lobby which has exposed studwork to the walls and ceiling. A glazed door enters the attractive reception hall which has oak effect flooring, stairs rising to the first floor and further glazed doors accessing the principal reception rooms and conservatory. The sitting room is situated in the centre of the property and has windows to the front elevation which take in views to the attractive front gardens and rolling farmland beyond. There is exposed studwork to the walls, a delightful red brick chimney breast with arched lintel and brick hearth and decorative leaded windows through to the garden room.
The dining room benefits from a dual aspect also benefiting from the aforementioned views and has exposed studwork to the walls and a red brick fireplace with oak lintel and inset wood burning stove upon a brick hearth.
The kitchen/breakfast room is extensively fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units with beech butchers block worktops, Belfast sink and an 'Esse' range cooker which also provides hot water and central heating. There is a tiled floor, attractive oak studwork, a feature arch and a red brick chimney breast with oak lintel and tiled recess which houses the 'Esse' boiler. Glazed doors lead to a useful pantry/larder and the room has a dual aspect overlooking the fields to the front and side garden.
There is a conservatory to the rear of the property which leads to a garden room, and is accessed via the reception hall and kitchen/breakfast room and it has French doors at both ends which lead to a terrace making the property ideal for entertaining. A panelled door from a lobby accesses the shower/cloakroom which has oak effect flooring and is fully tiled with a matching white suite and large corner shower cubicle.
The first floor is equally appealing with the stairs rising from the reception hall to a large landing which has windows to the rear elevation which give simply stunning views to the garden and uninterrupted countryside beyond.
The principal bedroom has a dual aspect and part vaulted ceiling and benefits from views on both aspects. The second and third bedrooms are situated to the front elevation of the property and have stunning views across farmland. The study/fourth bedroom takes in views to the rear and provides useful workspace or could be readily used as an occasional bedroom if required.
The bedrooms are served by a particularly well appointed family bath/shower room which has an oversized shower cubicle, enamel bath, pedestal wash hand basin and is tiled to dado height. There is also a fully tiled separate cloakroom.
The property is approached via a large carriage drive which provides extensive parking and in turn leads to decorative wrought iron gates hung between large red brick piers, beyond which is a large area of hard standing and a substantial detached double garage/workshop which is equipped with power and light.
The front gardens are particularly pretty with mature mixed hedge boundaries flanked by expanses of lawn which are interspersed with herbaceous borders that provide year round interest and colour and a pollarded horse chestnut tree provides a focal point. Rear access is afforded on both sides of the property via decorative wrought iron gates.
The principal rear garden is a true delight, not only providing complete privacy but colour and interest throughout the year. The large rear terrace, which can be accessed via the conservatory is perfectly placed to take position of the afternoon and evening sun and makes for an ideal family entertaining space adjacent to which is a covered area in case of inclement weather.
Beyond this terrace are large expanses of lawn which are flanked by raised sleeper beds which are densely stocked with a wide variety of shrubs, herbs and roses. Beyond this is a mixed hedge that immediately abuts open farmland and there is a summerhouse to the Westerly aspect of the garden in front of which is a circular, ornate pond. To the rear of the garage is a fully enclosed vegetable garden and attractive pollarded trees to its Easterly aspect. A pedestrian gate leads to another area of garden which boasts a variety of fruit trees to include apple and pear adjacent to which is a greenhouse.
Chestnut House is a delightful property in a superb rural location which offers vast potential for enlargement (subject to planning).
