GROUNDS & GARDENS

The property is bounded by two ‘in and out’ electric wooden gates, leading to a block paviour driveway, providing ample parking for several vehicles. The driveway houses a generous outbuilding; made up of two open garages, offering undercover parking/storage for four cars, an enclosed garage and workshop.

The formal gardens wrap around the entire property and are mostly laid to lawn and interspersed with shrubbery, bordered by hedging and a host of mature trees, providing a great degree of privacy. Further benefits include extensive views across neighbouring countryside.

There are two patios areas which lead off from the living room and kitchen, providing a choice of outside seating areas, ideal for al-fresco dining and entertaining friends and family. A further decking area sits to the rear of the garden.

THE PROPERTY

A brick built covered porch leads to the front door, which provides immediate access to the main entrance hall, with stairs leading to the first and second floors. To the left of the stairs is a cloakroom with WC and wash basin. On the right-hand side of the entrance hall is a charming lounge which incorporates a bay window with seating and a feature fireplace encased by wood panelling. The formal sitting room offers a large, bright and airy living space with a bay window, feature stone fireplace with inset log burner and French doors leading out onto the covered terrace area and garden beyond.

Alongside the sitting room, is the kitchen/breakfast room which has been beautifully remodelled and redesigned by the current owners and is a real centre piece of this charming home. Laid with oak flooring throughout, the kitchen offers base, wall and drawer shaker style units and integrated appliances, which include a microwave, oven, fridge/freezer and a generous island which incorporates an inset sink and additional worktop space and storage. The kitchen opens into a lovely, glassed breakfast area with French doors leading out to the patio area and garden and an informal seating area which is a great place to take in the stunning views of the manicured gardens. A useful utility room is positioned just off the kitchen, with large built-in cupboards and base level units with an additional sink.

Adjoining the kitchen is an impressive Orangery, providing panoramic views and access to the garden as well as an abundance of natural light, provided by the glass lantern roof. The ground floor living space is completed by a large study which is carpeted and fitted with bookshelf units and storage cupboards, this space is ideally suited as a home working environment.

Stairs lead to a first floor galleried landing with double windows, flooding the space with natural light. The principle bedroom also benefits from stunning views through a large bay window and also boasts a feature fireplace and built-in wardrobes. Bedroom two offers double aspect views, a feature fireplace and large floor to ceiling built-in wardrobes. Bedroom three offers far reaching views across neighbouring fields and benefits from an ensuite bathroom with a three-piece suite. The bedrooms are serviced by two separate family bathrooms and an additional landing area with additional floor to ceiling storage units, which could be utilised as a dressing room.
