Property description

A spectacular home with gardens fringing Sneyd Park Nature reserve.

A detached family house constructed in circa 1950 and standing within an established plot with significant gardens enjoying south westerly orientation. Cranham has been in the same family ownership for nearly 60 years and has been much loved and enjoyed by many generations. A quality construction with a reconstituted Bath stone elevations. There are notable quality features retained, including oak architraveing and doors, the original central staircase and the bathrooms feature original suites and Vermicular tiled floor. The drawing room includes not only a triple aspect orientation but also a French marble fire surround and in the dining room a sprung wooden floor. The property has a generous footprint and provides scale for buyers to interpret the accommodation to their own specification and the gardens are spectacular; large and level with a sunny orientation and fringing the historic Sneyd Park Nature reserve.

The property is arranged over four floors with a large integrated double garage and various store rooms on the lower ground. The hall floor includes the porch and reception hall with the aforementioned central staircase and there is also access to the lower ground and garage. Located off the hall are the principal rooms. The drawing room is bathed in light with double doors opening on to the sun room with retractable blind surveys the rear elevation and gardens, and adjacent is the dining room. The kitchen is well appointed with a range of wall and base units, a polished granite work surface, there are Miele appliances and Vermicular tiled floor. Beyond is a small and niche breakfast room, dual aspect as well as the utility that also has a Vermicular tiled floor with the pre requisite plumbing and Belfast sink. The cloakroom includes the same Vermicular tiled floor a wash basin and separate WC. A further door provides access to the side elevation.

The first floor includes three generous bedrooms with differing views and orientations served by an original art deco bathroom and additional en suite both. There is also useful linen and some under stair storage.

The top floor includes plenty of attic storage and a bedroom which arguably has the most enviable view directly over the immediate gardens and nature reserve beyond. Undoubtedly one of the most endearing features of Cranham is its situation and indeed grounds, generous in scale beautifully poised on the cusp on the nature reserve. There are significant and level lawns with meandering paths with three distinct tiers and sweeping steps that extend down from the sun room. Extensively planted and mature, there are established trees including tulip, cedar and many other specimens. The borders are fenced and heavily planted providing extreme privacy. Notable specimens include Palms, Rhododendrons, Acers, Corydalines and a flowering Wisteria.

A gated drive not only provides off street car parking but also provides access to the generous double garage which offers storage and to the rear of the house there is a useful garden store.

Sited on Quaker land this is a tranquil environment dominated by high net worth family houses, apartments and with the Parish church of St Mary Magdalene, the centre piece.
