Property description

This substantial detached family home dating from the Edwardian era has attractive period detailing throughout and is situated just a short walk from the village amenities.

The property is entered via an oak door with glazed panels flanked by a decoratively glazed window. The reception hall is an appealing space with a staircase rising to the first floor, exposed floorboards, deep moulded skirting boards and picture rail. The principal reception room is situated to the rear of the property and has a 'Nordica' wood burning stove set within a fireplace with an oak lintel above, exposed floorboards and moulded skirting boards. A square arch opens to a magnificent South facing green oak garden room with a vaulted ceiling. It has Jerusalem limestone flooring with electric underfloor heating and French doors to a decked terrace.

To the front elevation of the property is a family room/snug which has an original tiled hearth with decoratively carved oak surround, exposed floorboards, picture rails and views to the enclosed front garden. A breakfast room has a window to the garden room and this has chestnut flooring and leads to the kitchen/breakfast room which forms the heart of the house and takes in views to the South facing rear garden. It is extensively fitted with a range of dual coloured solid ash units with an eye level 'Smeg' oven and grill which is flanked on both sides by storage cupboards. There is an integral fridge/freezer, two ceramic single bowl sinks with mixer taps, built-in dishwasher and an induction hob with extractor hood over. Ash butchers block work surfaces, part vaulted ceiling and Velux rooflight make for an attractive and light space.

A square arch accesses a boot room which has a quarry tiled floor, an oak door leads to the outside and a glazed and panelled pine door leads to a cloakroom. Accessed from the boot room is an integral garage which has twin doors to the front. The garage houses the water softener and the heating system.

The first floor is equally attractive with the stairs rising to a split level galleried landing. The principal bedroom is situated in a recent extension and benefits from a dual aspect giving views to Nunnery Street, chestnut flooring and deep moulded skirting boards. A square arch accesses a large dressing room and a spacious en-suite bathroom with matching white suite, large storage cupboard and chestnut flooring. The remaining three bedrooms are situated in the original part of the house, two of them benefit from attractive cast iron fireplaces, one bedroom taking in views to the garden and beyond, the remaining two overlooking the front garden. These are served by a spacious family shower room with an oversized shower cubicle with mermaid board, pedestal wash hand basin and w.c. With raised cistern and travertine flooring.

The property is approached via a drive providing extensive parking being edged by brick leading to a large expanse of lawn with a number of evergreen shrubs and mature mixed hedging to the front. There is an attractive holly bush which provides colour and interest. Side access is afforded by way of wrought iron gates to the rear garden. The aforementioned entertaining terrace is accessed via French doors to the garden room, beyond which are large expanses of lawn interspersed with densely stocked herbaceous borders. There is a kidney shaped pond adjacent to an arbour and trellis providing shade. An attractive twisted willow tree provides a focal point, beyond which are further expanses of lawn and a garden storage shed. To the rear of the property the current owners acquired the former allotments which provide extensive scope for a variety of uses, beyond which is conservation area.
