Description & Accommodation
Set back behind wrought iron gates this substantial and flexible family home extents to in excess of 3,000 sq ft (285m2) and will easily accommodate the largest of families. The house is believed to have been built in the 1930’s and was extended at the turn of the century to almost double its size. Traditionally constructed the house is laid out over two floors with a large loft space within the tiled hipped roof over the rendered and painted elevations. The house is double glazed throughout with oil fired central heating. Many of the rooms are dual aspect with plenty of windows allowing for lots of natural light throughout the house.
An enclosed porch leads to the entrance hall where stairs ascend to the first floor. The kitchen is to the rear of the house with a range of storage units to two walls either side of a central island with breakfast bar. There is space for a range style cooker, dishwasher and large fridge/freezer. Open to the kitchen is a breakfast/family room with woodburning stove making this a very social area. Part of the room has been sectioned off with a large serving hatch to create a bar area. The sitting and dining rooms are open to one another creating a very generous space able to accommodate large furniture. There are two windows to two aspects flooding the room with light including a patio door leading to the rear outside space. Between the kitchen and the study is a utility room with further storage and provision for washing and drying machines and cloakroom/WC. The study is big enough to run a small business from, or could be utilised as a downstairs bedroom. A door leads to the rear of the property.
Upstairs off the spacious landing are four bedrooms. To the rear is the main bedroom which is of generous proportions and benefits from an en-suite bath and shower room. A corridor off the main landing then leads to two further double bedrooms and the family bath and shower room.
The layout would lend itself to being further divided if required to create an annex or separate living areas to suit a multigenerational family living, subject to planning.
Wrought iron gates open to the brick paved driveway which is large enough to accommodate multiple vehicles, a trailered boat and a motorhome all at the same time if required. At the far end is a garage/workshop, as well as another outbuilding that would work well as an office space. A gate leads to the rear of the property which has been hard landscaped with a mix of decking and terracing with a door to the rear of the house, ideal for alfresco dining. A wooden fence with a gate separates the drive from the garden which is level mostly laid to lawn with bushes, shrubs and small trees. The swimming pool is heated by an air-source heat pump and surrounded by a paved terrace with a summer house and shed forming a great entertaining area. The garden is to the south of the house so gets the best of the sun throughout the day. The entire plot measures approx. 0.36 acres and is surrounded by a mix of walling and wooden fencing. The house is shielded from the road by several mature trees located in a garden area to the side of the house.
Mains electricity and water, private drainage – oil fired central heating, double Glazing. Calor gas bottles supply the cooker.
