The Property:
This is a truly rare property set on a magnificent plot of approximately 0.63 acres. Coming to the market for the first time in almost sixty years, this property has been a treasured family home and has been comprehensively extended to the rear. The original double-fronted part of the property dates back to the early 19th Century; a traditional 'four square' house with a central staircase. The property now boasts expansive family accommodation with a sitting room to the front with exposed beams mirrored by a snug/family room with a wood burning stove, both rooms of handsome proportions. A wonderful dining room spans almost the full width of the property behind and lends itself perfectly to modern family living and entertaining. The kitchen lies behind with a selection of mostly timber handmade units and worksurfaces and a built-in larder cupboard. There is a ground floor bathroom, large utility room and side access door beyond.

The house was extended to the side to add a workshop with doors from the garden and a gym/store, both of which could easily be incorporated into the main house. The original house also has a useful original basement. The first floor is home to a wonderful principal bedroom with dressing area and en-suite bathroom. There are two further large double bedrooms and a fourth bedroom, all served by a family bathroom and associated WC.

Outside the house is blessed with wonderful park-like gardens which stretch to the west. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn with some specimen trees and shrubs, a wildflower meadow and mature shrubs for boundaries. There is a triple garage with double door to the front, additional single up-and-over door to the side, and a vehicle inspection pit.

There is an additional brick store for gardening equipment.
