Property description

Lyon house Substantial detached executive home with well appointed accommodation throughout including the addition of a separate annexe. This home has a strong continental influence, most noticeable in the landscaped gardens which contain Tuscan Palm trees, Yucca's and Olive Trees.

Sellers insight Having purchased the property over 40 years ago, many years have been enjoyed in this home and fond memories made. The current vendor will certainly miss the comfort of this home, however has decided to downsize.

'We have spent many years at this home and we have very fond memories of the parties we have held in the music room and the warm evenings enjoying our Italian garden, inspired from our travels over the years.' – Vendor

The property has been extended in the past to provide further accommodation and each of the rooms are extremely spacious, light and airy benefitting from the Dutch inspired windows and doors.

Even though the garden is extremely manageable, the Vendors have decided it is time to downsize. They will of course miss this home and the memories which have been made here.

Step inside This home provides ample well-appointed accommodation throughout the main house and also provides further linked accommodation in the annexe. As you step inside through the double front doors into a large porch and entrance hall you can immediately sense the extent of the property and can see that it flows very well. The drawing room has dual aspect and a beautiful open fireplace with underfloor drafts. Double doors lead through to the winter garden which has spectacular views over the rear patio. Beyond the winter garden is the music room which has triple aspect and is an impressive space, perfect for hosting events. Also off of the drawing room is a large dining room at the rear of the property with space to accommodate a twelve seater table. The kitchen stretches over two sections and incorporates a large larder cupboard, floor and wall units, double sink and drainer unit and space for dishwasher and fridge freezer. A door leads to the laundry room which also has sink, drainer and space for washer and dryer. The rear of the integrated garage can be accessed from the laundry room. The kitchen conservatory provides the most peaceful space to sit and enjoy reading during the afternoons.

On the first floor, six double bedrooms are well laid out from the large landing area which provides ample storage space in two airing cupboards as well as a study space with velux windows. The master suite benefits from rear garden views and fitted wardrobes. Off of the main bedroom are two dressing rooms which lead through to two en suite bathrooms. The guest suite at the other end of the property also has an en suite shower room. The family bathroom is centrally located to serve the four further bedrooms.

The annexe accommodation is accessed via an inner hall from the kitchen and comprises library/living room off of which it has its own conservatory, kitchen with space for fridge freezer and double bedroom with garden views, fitted wardrobes and en suite bathroom.

Step outside The front of the property is approached through double gates and the driveway sweeps through a large lawn area past a beautiful Willow tree. Hedging to the front provides a great deal of privacy to the front of the property. Ample parking is available on the drive, in front of the garage and also to either side of the house behind double locked gates.

The rear garden can be accessed from a number of different rooms at the rear of the house and has a strong Italian influence. There are 25 mature Tuscan Palm Trees, 2 Olive Trees and a number of Yucca's planted around the garden.

A large patio stretches across the rear of the property and is sheltered by a white pergola roof held up by impressive pillars. A garden wall encloses the rear boundary and there is fencing to either side. A separate patio area is at the rear of the large lawn to provide an alternative space to enjoy the sun at a different time of day.
