Description

An outstanding period property built we understand between the mid and late 1800's, beautifully presented with a charming elegant atmosphere, situated in a much-coveted position on the outskirts of the village. This substantial Victorian family home has been lovingly cared for by the present owners with a significant amount of modernisation having been undertaken during their guardianship since 1987. This stunning property still retains many of the features associated with the period and offers extremely versatile accommodation over three floors. The large gardens form a particular feature of the property and will clearly appeal to those with a keen gardening interest, also providing ample space for the children to play. In addition, there is a detached double garage with fitness room and shower room attached (this would provide an ideal annexe/home office space or similar subject to any planning consent required). The spacious and versatile accommodation benefits from double glazed and secondary glazed units, gas fired central heating and all other modern conveniences and includes: Entrance Vestibule and impressive Reception Hall with Oak staircase and feature fireplace, an elegant Drawing Room with feature bay window leading into the superb period style Conservatory. There is a formal Dining Room, a Sitting Room, a beautifully appointed Kitchen/Breakfast Room and downstairs Shower Room. On the first floor, there are four Bedrooms, a Family Bathroom and Cloakroom and to the second floor, three further Bedrooms and a Bathroom.

The property is approached via a private stone chipped driveway which in turn leads to the double garage and potential annexe. The large formal south facing gardens which amount to approximately acre include large areas of lawn with landscaped borders and a wide selection of mature trees, shrubs and flowering plants. This is without doubt an exceptional property that will only be truly appreciated by way of internal and external inspection.
