Set in a superb location, 'Abbotts Wood' is a very private residence which has been well-maintained by the one original owner and has excellent potential to be reconfigured into a spacious and contemporary family home. The property benefits from an abundance of natural light with most of the rooms taking advantage of windows to the south-east over the rear garden and is built of brick elevations under a parapet tiled roof with large inset wooden windows. The drawing room and sitting room are through rooms opening directly onto both the private terrace that surrounds the large, heated swimming pool and the rear sun terrace, which is also accessed through the dining room. Steps from the rear sun terrace graduate onto the lawn which gently slopes away and is extremely private and screened by mature trees and shrubbery. The property also benefits from a spacious double garage and large outside storage shed. Upstairs is approached via a sweeping staircase which leads to a light and spacious galleried landing connecting all six bedrooms, bathroom and shower room. The principal bedroom is well-proportioned and benefits from en-suite bathroom, a separate dressing area with twin built in wardrobes and enjoys splendid views over the secluded rear garden. Completing the picture are four further double bedrooms and a single bedroom.
'Abbotts Wood' is situated off Sleepers Hill at the end of a secluded drive, shared with just four other properties.
