The sale of St Annes, for the first time in 40 years, presents a rare opportunity to purchase a substantial family home hidden away in mature and sheltered grounds approaching 0.4 acre. Built in 1839 and having been the Station Hotel during the reign of Queen Victoria, the property was divided into two large semi-detached homes. Occupying the larger portion, St Annes has superb rooms over three floors as well as a substantial ground floor addition and a huge double garage with access on both sides. Approached along a private drive and with electric gates, most people would not even know the house exists and this is undoubtedly one of its major attractions. For somebody who appreciates the space offered by houses of this age, this is a fabulous chance to create a comfortable home for the next 40 years. Currently there are three large reception rooms and a family/games room on the ground floor as well as a breakfast kitchen and a shower room. On the upper floors, are seven double bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The dimensions and height of the rooms are bound to appeal and the new owner will have a wonderful opportunity to put their own mark on the existing accommodation.
It is difficult to put into words the degree of seclusion and closeness to nature that is felt at the property. We anticipate significant interest in this outstanding house and recommend an appointment to view.
