The details

A wonderful, detached family residence in an idyllic, rural location.

Originally constructed in the twenties this wonderful property has been lovingly maintained and later extended to create what is now a very spacious family home.

Located amid grounds amounting to over two and a third acres and with fabulous views over the surrounding countryside and woodlands, it is a wonderful, private haven of tranquillity.

It is well-presented with light and neutral decor, oil-fired central heating making it feel warm and welcoming, and has many features typical of the late twenties including fabulous bay windows, decorative fireplaces, high ceilings and steel patio doors and windows.

A solid-oak front door leads into a porch with a tiled floor and through a glazed door into an entrance hallway flowing into a spacious dining area which is filled with light from dual-aspect windows and French doors to the front. There is plenty of space for eight or ten places around a dinner table, perfect for a dinner party or a family celebration, and a fireplace with a paved hearth and decoratively-tiled surround makes a wonderful feature and focal point for the room.

A rear hallway has a turning staircase rising to the first floor, with a convenient ground-floor cloakroom beneath containing a WC and wash-hand basin, and an area housing the oil-fired boiler for the central heating and hot water. A door leads into a study which is carpeted and has plenty of light from half-glazed double-doors to the driveway and is perfect for those working from home.

The living room is a generous size, carpeted and is flooded with light from a fabulous bay window. It has an elegant working fireplace with a cast-iron grate and decorative tiled surround, making a lovely feature and focal point for the room; wonderful with a roaring fire on a dark winter night.

French doors open into a conservatory which has a tiled floor and sliding doors to the garden, making a delightful space in which to enjoy the sunshine and views of the garden.

A spacious kitchen has a durable tile-effect vinyl floor, oak-effect worktop space with colourful tiled splashbacks and a range of cream fitted base and drawer units providing ample cupboard space. An oil-fired range provides the excellent cooking facilities, along with an eye-level double-oven and a separate ceramic hob, there is a stainless-steel sink and mixer tap beneath a window, space with plumbing beneath the worktop for a dishwasher, and an airing cupboard contains an insulated hot water cylinder. This room flows into a breakfast area which is carpeted and filled with light from a window to the conservatory and a wide window and glazed door to the garden, making a great social space ideal for casual dining.

A door leads into a utility room which has a sloping glazed roof and a door to the rear of the property. It has a vinyl floor, plenty of space with plumbing for a washing machine, tumble drier, and also has a wash-hand basin. There is a useful storeroom with lights and power, and beside it a coal storage shed.

The staircase with its lovely oak banister and balustrade leads onto the first-floor landing where there are a couple of cupboards, a shallow one and another with sliding doors. A door leads into the master bedroom, a generous double, carpeted and flooded with light from a fabulous bay window and steel French doors, both with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. It has fitted wardrobes and a dressing table, providing an abundance of clothes storage, and the French doors lead out onto a balcony, with a wrought-iron balustrade, making a wonderful space to enjoy a breakfast cup of tea with the morning papers perhaps.

There are four further bedrooms, three light and airy doubles, two with built-in wardrobes and a generous sized single which has French doors onto another balcony with wonderful views to the front. A modern bathroom is carpeted and has stylish part-tiled walls containing a contemporary suite comprising a p-bath with a shower and curved glass screen above, a vanity unit with a hidden-cistern WC and basin, a matching storage unit for toiletries and a chrome heated towel rail.

A second family bathroom contains a salmon suite comprising a bath with a shower attachment, a separate shower, a WC and a pedestal basin, and the landing has a large hatch in the ceiling which provides access to the loft space, with a drop-down ladder and a light for convenience, where there is plentiful additional storage space.

A gated entrance leads onto a long tarmac driveway which leads to the front of the property where it widens providing parking for at least six cars beside the garage which has a sliding door, lights and power. Beside the garage is a garden store with French doors and a window to the side, providing extensive dry storage, and at the rear of the garage and garden store is another storage area with double doors to the drive. At the rear of the property is a plastic oil tank for the heating and hot water, an outside tap for watering, and a door into the utility room, and at the opposite end of the utility room, accessed from the garden, is another small storage shed.

The surrounding gardens are beautifully maintained with extensive areas of formal lawns and grassed areas, punctuated with mature trees including a large copper birch and a majestic conifer, with rock-edged beds well-stocked with wide varieties of shrubs, plants flowers and bushes. A paved terrace beside the conservatory, is ideal for a barbecue or alfresco dining, and the gardens extend to over two and a third acres, plenty of space for children and pets.
