Full Details

The Property
Wagon House was built in 2020 by a reputable local builder. It is constructed in a period style, with natural stone and brick beneath a slate covered roof. This unique property is located within the high stone walls of the adjacent Burton Hill House, which has recently been restored and returned to a single private dwelling. The overhanging roof and brick pillars are inset with tri-fold doors to take full advantage of the natural light. The rooms all have excellent proportions and there is a mixture of high quality engineered oak flooring and tiling in the bathrooms. An electrically operated sliding gate provides access into the south-facing courtyard, which has been landscaped by Graduate Gardeners.

The Accommodation
The front door leads into a hall with shelved cupboard, the plant room housing the boiler and heating controls plus a cloakroom off. The large kitchen/breakfast/living room is a delightful feature and has five sets of tri-fold doors onto the garden. There are extensive units with a Rangemaster dual-fuel Professional cooker which has an extractor over. In addition there is a large integrated fridge and separate freezer, plus a dishwasher, wine fridge, washing machine and tumble drier. The main work surfaces are Minerva with a two bowl under mounted sink. The island unit/breakfast bar has an oak top with overhanging for stools. There is extensive high and low level lighting. Off the hall, the master bedroom has a built-in wardrobe, a shelved cupboard and a circular port-hole window. The en suite shower room has a light tube and a large shower enclosure. The second bedroom has one wall of built-in wardrobes and cupboards, plus an en suite bathroom with separate shower enclosure. The bedroom and bathroom have electrically operated Velux windows.
