The Property:
Dating back to 1908, 'Pipers Field' is a handsome detached house of red brick elevations with inset double-glazed windows under a clay tiled roof. The front door opens into a most spacious entrance hall with a fireplace and a beautiful parquet floor, this space leads to the ground floor accommodation with an imposing part panelled staircase that rises to the first floor. A double aspect study has a fireplace and provides ample space for a good home office. The drawing room extends to almost 29' in length and has an impressive bay window, fireplace and French doors that open into the rear garden. The formal dining room is a lovely square room with a bay window and fitted window seat again overlooking the rear garden and will accommodate a well-proportioned table and chairs. The family room has French doors that open onto the rear terrace, and double doors that open into the kitchen/breakfast room which is undoubtedly the heart of the house. The kitchen has been beautifully fitted with a bespoke range of wooden 'in frame' base units with sumptuous black granite worksurfaces over, a fitted 'AGA' with hotplates and ovens. The games room has had many uses over the years, an idea space for a snooker table, or it could be kitted out as a home gym. This opens to the utility room and additional cloakroom, and links neatly with the garage. The circulation space is bright and airy with windows to the front aspect and a tall window on the half landing allowing this theme to continue on the first floor. A principal bedroom has a bay window overlooking the garden with fitted wardrobes and a beautifully fitted four-piece bathroom with large walk-in shower and a standalone contemporary bath. There are five further bedrooms served by two bathrooms, although bedroom six is currently used as a dressing room. Outside a large block paved driveway is approached through a pair of brick piers providing access to the front door, games room and garage. The rear garden is enclosed and the well-tended lawn wraps neatly around the property with a sun terrace directly behind the house.
