Originally a large Victorian house with an impressive Edwardian extension, a 10 bedroom home with great potential for extra income with a luxury self-contained and separate holiday let. Boasting 3 large reception rooms, cellars, entrance hall with feature fireplace and a sweeping staircase.
Approaching the property, from the private driveway, you will immediately be struck by the tranquility and sound of birdsong. Nestled next to its own natural wood and with stunning views down the valley, this really is a very special location.
From the driveway, one can fully appreciate over which two time periods this house was built and, subsequently, extended. The original Victorian cottage is on the left, with the entrance to the kitchen and utility areas, while the more recent Edwardian extension sitting on the right with the entrance porch.
Walking through into the entrance hall, the original features immediately become apparent. The large feature fireplace would provide a warm welcome on chillier days, while the large staircase wrapping round the hall guides you to the first floor. Across the hall is the drawing room; a spacious room flooded with light, thanks to the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the garden. With the cast iron radiators around the room and original fireplace and fittings, the character of the whole house is evident.
Down the hallway, the formal dining room; butler’s pantry and stairway to the cellar can be found and this then leads into the older section. Here can be found a smaller room, currently used as a snug. The aforementioned character continues with a large fireplace containing a log burner. This room leads into the kitchen complete with range cooker and appliances. Through the rear doorway, and across a passageway, the store could provide space for a utility room or storage. The ground floor is completed by a WC and a separate shower room.
The back staircase is an alternative route to the five bedrooms on the first floor and the three on the second floor. The first floor has two separate WCs, a shower room and a Jack and Jill bathroom from the principle suite. All rooms have views of either the woodland or of down the valley, and are full of original features with the proportions to match. The second floor rooms are nestled into the eaves of the roof and could provide extra accommodation, space for home working or more storage. Back on the first floor, the sweeping staircase leads down past a set of stained glass windows and back into the entrance hall.
Across the private lane is a cottage, currently used as a very successful holiday let. With a kitchen-diner, lounge, double bedroom and shower room, this tastefully decorated accommodation could be a useful place for guests or for continued commercial use as a holiday let.
There are also four large garages/barns on the land which can be accessed from the lane. Two are currently used as workshops and one to house the motorhome and vehicles. The workshop/barn has planning permission for conversion into a four bedroom dwelling. (If this should be of interest to you, drawings and details are available on request).
The land around the property is best characterised as being two distinct areas. Firstly, the formal gardens sweep down from the house and are laid mainly to lawn with mature shrubs. The second area is predominantly natural woodland bordering the property and going up the hill.
This is a wonderful and rare opportunity to purchase a unique property which is in an oasis of calm. It is simply not possible, in words and pictures alone, to capture its true essence. No words could do it justice and we highly recommend you come and see for yourself what an amazing place this is. Viewing is, therefore, highly recommended and we would be delighted to show you around so you can fall in love with it as much as we have.
