What Amelies Love…
We love all the surprises that that fantastic property has to offer. From the expanse of space that is hidden behind the original Grade II Listed exterior, to the beautifully enclosed gardens, we can assure you that you won't be disappointed.
The main entrance to this property is located through the electric wrought iron gates to the side of the property. Here, you will find an excellent, bright, family sized entrance hall with fitted storage which is ideal for storing outer and footwear as well as serving as a welcoming entrance to this stunning character property.
With a selection of four individually designed reception rooms, this property offers the perfect relaxing spots for all occasions. The main living area is the most spacious of the reception rooms and is located to the front of the property. Here you will find a wealth of original features including, original stone flooring, rustic beams and an inglenook fireplace. Leading from the lounge you will find two further reception areas; a snug which is also situated at the front of the property and a garden room to the rear. The snug is a bright room with wooden flooring and dual aspect windows. There is comfortably space for two reasonably sized sofas and generous coffee table. The garden room is one of our favourite spaces in the house. The vendors have taken a great deal of effort and time to ensure that this addition to the original property perfectly marries together both the old and new. Take time here to relax and enjoy this exceptionally bright space and admire the well established private gardens.
Kitchen & Dining Room
Moving through this home and to to rear of the property you will find another great example of where old meets new. The vendors have chosen and had recently fitted a solid wood shaker kitchen with Silestone Quartz worktops. This bespoke made kitchen has been designed thoughtfully and has a special little spot for everything! The vendors have chosen a selection of neutral Farrow and Ball tones for the units and decor, but added a splash of colour to the island unit which works perfectly. There is also an additional larder which offers additional fitted storage. Leading directly from the kitchen is the fourth reception room, which is currently being used as the dining room. This gorgeous space offers the perfect dinner spot with views out to every angle of the garden as well as a glazed roof lantern which floods both the dining area and kitchen with natural light.
On the ground floor you will also find a utility area, cloakroom and central hall way as well as stairs leading down to the cellar and up to two of the five bedrooms. The fully sealed cellar offers excellent additional storage as well as an abundance of character. With hand carved stone steps and a hand made wrought iron banister it could make the perfect wine store.
Bedrooms and Bathroom
There are two staircases which lead up to the first floor. The first leads up from the main reception area, this staircase will give you access to three of the bedrooms which are all in the main part of the original house. There are two double bedrooms on the first floor with windows looking out to the enclosed rear garden as well as a generous family bathroom and stairs leading up to a further double room with en-suite. All three bedrooms are bright, nicely decorated and have built in wardrobes. The bathroom boasts a raised roll top bath and shower cubical as well as a hand basin and toilet. The vendors have maintained the character by highlighting the wooden paneled edging with Farrow & Ball deep grey railings wall colour and adding brass fittings throughout the bathroom. The second staircase leads up from the inner hall to the two further bedrooms and separate toilet. Both of these bedrooms are also doubles with the largest offering and en-suite shower room and additional built in storage.
Thatched Barn & Gardens
The thatched barn offers further additional, usable space. At present this 30ft+ space is being used as an office space and gym with the added bonus of a mezzanine floor. The uses for this extra space are endless providing the usual planning permissions are sought. We fell in love with this garden the moment we saw it. As with the property itself the space on offer will come as an unexpected surprise. To the side of the property there is gated parking for several cars which then opens up in to a stunning courtyard with central water feature, this is also where you will acknowledge the true size of this L – shaped, Grade II Listed family home.The courtyard then follows through to a generous lawned area where you will find ample seating areas and a greenhouse.
