This substantial home dates from the late 1800's and has been extended and improved over the last 30 years. The current owners have occupied since 2001 and significantly enlarged the garaging, which could now accommodate up to four cars, or perhaps be converted to ancillary accommodation, subject to obtaining the necessary consent. There is extensive parking on the driveway, and the large south-east facing garden, to the front of the house, makes it an ideal family home.
Porch with wooden front door leading to an entrance lobby with glazed side screen and staircase off. An opening off leads to the reception hall with a storage cupboard and pantry. The double reception room at the front overlooks the garden and has a stone fireplace with log burner in the sitting area, with extensive bookshelves and cupboards in the dining area. The kitchen/breakfast room at the rear has wooden units and includes an Everhot cooker. Double doors lead to an adjoining Orangery with access to the garden. The ground floor includes a bedroom with en suite shower and access to the rear courtyard. On the first floor, the master bedroom has a dressing room with built-in wardrobes and shelving, plus a large bathroom with a shower over the bath, and a deep walk-in airing cupboard. The second bedroom has a wood panelled wall and a Victorian grate. There is a small sixth bedroom, which would make an ideal study, and a cloakroom. The top floor provides two further double bedrooms, one with a built-in wardrobe and a family bathroom with shower over the bath. All four principal bedrooms overlook the front garden.
A five bar gate and separate pedestrian entrance lead to a large gravelled drive with parking for numerous cars. The extensive garaging has power and light with a large tool/potting shed at the rear. A gate set in a yew hedge leads to a wide paved terrace adjoining the front of the house. The chiefly lawned garden includes two mature beech trees and there are two wooden sheds. At the end of the garden is a screened area with a gate. Behind the house is a courtyard area and a utility room with butlers sink, the water softener and space for the washing machine and tumble drier. Adjacent is a log store.
