Reception hall 3 Reception rooms Kitchen/breakfast room Scullery & utility room Store room Cloakroom 4 bedrooms Family bathroom & separate shower room Detached double garage with a room above Mature secluded gardens A rare opportunity to acquire a former headmaster’s house that has been significantly improved by the present owners. It is now an excellent example of a charming family home that successfully blends period features with modern-day living. The house is set within mature gardens that provide a high degree of seclusion. In addition to the main house, a room above the garage provides excellent further living/working space, ideal for those seeking to work from home. The beautifully presented accommodation ranges over two floors. The many features include excellent ceiling heights, original fireplaces in many of the rooms, sash windows, moulded cornicing, ceiling roses and stripped wooden floors, doors, architraves and skirtings.
The house benefits from three reception rooms: the elegant sitting room boasting a large bay window, a marble fireplace and double doors opening out to a secluded patio area, the spacious dining room, also with a large bay window and a period fireplace, and a study, which could be utilised as a fifth bedroom. The Mark Wilkinson kitchen is fitted with a range of units, a central island with a granite worksurface, a maple wood breakfast bar and appliances including a 4-ring gas hob, a Siemens electric oven, a Siemens refrigerator. The adjoining country style scullery provides additional kitchen space with further units, a Siemens microwave, a Seimens oven, a Bosch 4-ring gas hob, a ceramic sink unit and space and plumbing for a dishwasher and fridge/freezer. The ground floor further comprises a useful utility area, a store room and a cloakroom.
The first floor provides four double bedrooms, all with original ornate fireplaces, a modern family bathroom, a shower room and a separate WC.
The gardens are a key feature of the property and are stocked with a wide variety of flowering plants, shrubs and trees to create ’year round’ interest, particularly the rhododendrons with their displays of colour during the flowering season. To the front, an attractive tiled pathway leads through the garden to the entrance of the house and, in addition to the double garage, a gravelled driveway provides off-road parking. The gardens are principally laid to lawn and incorporate areas designed for relaxation and ’al fresco’ dining, including a sheltered patio with a Mediterranean theme outside the sitting room, a bbq area which may be reached from the kitchen and a paved gazebo area.
