This wonderfully versatile home, which includes more than 4150 square feet of internal living space, is presented to the market in excellent condition throughout and offers a bright and spacious modern family home within an unlisted period property which dates back to the 1600s with a host of character and modern features.
The property, which is positioned on a large plot of approximately 0.35 acres, is set over four floors and consists of, on the ground floor, entrance hall, two sitting rooms, dining room, bar, utility room, kitchen, breakfast room/conservatory. On the first floor you find four bedrooms, a walk in wardrobe, an ensuite bathroom and family bathroom. The second floor consists of a gym and a lounge/bedroom with a cloakroom and a office while on the lower ground floor is a cellar.
On entering the front door, you are greeted by a large central hallway with tiled flooring and wooden stairs leading directly to the first floor and immediately to your left and right are two well-proportioned sitting rooms, with original sash windows overlooking the front drive and feature fire places in both rooms. One of the sitting rooms has French doors leading directly outside. From the entrance hall, to the rear of the property you enter the kitchen, a wonderful space that has been modernised to an excellent standard with granite surfaces and splashback while retaining the charm of its character features including an original built in wood oven and exposed beams. Also in the kitchen you find the exposed original fireplace/chimney that runs through and is visible from every floor in the house. Surrounding the kitchen are four further rooms including a utility room, a bar/snug with door to shower room, a large dining room, again with exposed beams, and a conservatory/breakfast room with built in wine fridges. The breakfast room allows light to flood in to the house and has two sets of doors leading directly to the garden in the rear.
Taking the stairs to the first floor you find four large double bedrooms with an ensuite bathroom that serves two bedrooms and large walk in wardrobe serving the principal bedroom. Additionally there is a modern family bathroom room with free standing bath and shower. Stairs lead you to the second floor which is a wonderful space that utilises the entire top of the house and is currently being used as an office, a lounge and a gym and benefits from a cloakroom. On the lower ground floor you find the cellar which still features the original coal chute which the current owners use for the delivery of wood for use in the wood burner located in the kitchen.
Outside, to the front of the property you have a private drive leading to a gravel parking area at the front of the property with electric security gates and ample parking for several cars. An additional entrance, again with electric security gates, leads to the side of the property down to a double garage at the rear of the property.
Outside to the rear you have a wonderful mature garden featuring a stunning magnolia tree at the rear and a large patio area accessed directly from the conservatory while a newly installed pergola has wisteria growing through it. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees and shrubs and also features a pond with water feature and a bridge, a jacuzzi for six people and a sauna. At the rear of the garden is a built in fire pit. The property also benefits from 22 solar panels which are located on the roof.
