Dating back to 1902, the property is an imposing and substantial property built in the Arts & Craft style. Since purchasing the house, the current owners have carried out a programme of renovation and extension to create a stunning family home, full of character and period elegance.
The attention to detail is evident throughout highlighting the exquisite craftsmanship of the original era. The features including wonderful use of oak and pine, exposed timbers, individual fireplaces, leaded windows, beautiful staircase, panelling and vintage lighting. Extending to over 3,100 square feet the accommodation is laid out over three floors. On the ground floor are two principal reception rooms, both with fireplaces, a cosy study/library area and a stunning open plan dining area and kitchen with bi-fold doors opening to the terrace. The kitchen has a good range of painted wall and base units, granite work surfaces, a butler sink, a central island with breakfast bar and a five-burner Falcon cooking with extractor over. On the first floor are four double bedrooms and two contemporary bathrooms. A further flight of stairs leads up to the second floor with two more double bedrooms and another bathroom.
The property is approached through a secure gated entrance opening to the extensive gravelled driveway and giving access to the double garage. The house is set well back from the road and screened by established mature tree and shrub planting. The rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn and offer good levels of seclusion being fully closed by hedging and trees. The southwesterly aspect of the garden attracts a lot of sunlight to the paved terrace which provides excellent private relaxation space for al-fresco dining etc. A wrought iron gate opens from the garden to the back of the garage and through to the two useful store rooms, ideal for logs, bicycles, garden furniture etc. There is also a separate workshop and garden store.
