Property description

This handsome family residence was individually built in 1939 and occupies a particularly fine position within the village. The home occupies a near-central position on a plot of approximately 1.75 acres, is wonderfully secluded behind high trees and approached by a private driveway.

Extensive and sympathetic renovation has taken place throughout the years since the current owners bought the house in 1998 as only the second occupants since the property was built.

The original oak panelled front door opens into the light and airy entrance hall which leads to the well-equipped kitchen with a wide range of fine-quality storage cabinets, a central island, solid wood worktops and original bell box. The garden room features a part-vaulted ceiling, windows to all aspects which offer complete views of the rear gardens, two sets of French doors and an original maid's oven. The formal dining room has views to the rear garden and French doors which open onto the generously proportioned sitting room which measures 14' x 22'. The sitting room enjoys a multi-fuel burner with a stone surround and views of the formal gardens and countryside beyond. There is also a useful study and a WC.

Completing the ground floor is the former garage, which has been converted into a two storey space which is suitable for a wide range of uses with separate access.

A turned oak staircase from the entrance hall leads to the galleried landing and first floor where there are five bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate shower room. The spacious, dual aspect master bedroom measures 12'11" x 17'4" and enjoys bespoke, built-in wardrobes.

Outside, the property is set well back from the road and is approached via gates and a gravel driveway which leads to the parking area and the alarmed, detached, double garage. The front garden is bordered with high trees, providing excellent privacy, unspoilt wooded areas and the former Harston station platform lamp.

To the rear is an extensive terrace and formal gardens. Meticulously planted and well stocked beds border the generous lawns with various shrubs and mature trees.
