about chestnut house
Dated 1997, the fully double glazed house has well-proportioned principal rooms, all with attractive views of the gardens or farmland. A now lapsed planning consent previously allowed for an extension to the north.

The dual aspect sitting room is the full width of the house with double doors opening to an oversized conservatory with views of, and access to, the garden. Double doors also open from the conservatory to the dining room, which also connects to the kitchen and the hallway. The spacious kitchen incorporates an extensive suite with integrated appliances and ample space for dining. The utility accesses the integral double garage.

The principal bedroom suite has a dressing area and en suite shower room. Bedroom two is also en suite, whilst the other bedrooms share a full suite family bathroom.

Set back within a garden plot of about three quarters of an acre, there is extensive parking and garaging, with professionally landscaped gardens which wrap around the house.

The ‘Prime Oak’ annex is currently used as an office suite. Designed as a one bedroom ancillary annex, the large office/sitting room, with vaulted ceiling, has plumbing for a kitchen and adjoins an inner office/bedroom and shower room.
