I’m quite sure the current owners still walk around this property and find something they haven’t seen before. It offers an abundance of charm, character and quirks throughout. It’s big – over 5000 sq. ft. set over the 4 floors and yet it retains a warm and inviting feel – you certainly don’t feel lost or overawed by the size. The current owners extensively refurbished the property some 25 years ago and were sympathetic to the period of the building. This now offers a fantastic ‘blueprint’ to modernise further and adjust to more modern trends and lifestyle living.
So, let us ‘walk’ you through the accommodation although there really is no substitute for a viewing, to truly understand this fine country residence. Upon arrival you can use either the North or East entrances – both are impressive and welcoming inside and out. For the purpose of these details, we’ll take the Eastern entrance (as it’s the closest to the kitchen!). From the lobby area there is access down to the two-compartment cellar, pantry, utility and inner hall with staircase off to the first floor. There are two doors into the open plan breakfast kitchen which offers a range of built in units and pleasant sun room adjoining. The Lounge and Family rooms are impressive in size and brimming with character and a versatile hobbies room and bathroom complete the ground floor.
Six double bedrooms are located on the first floor sharing two well-appointed and proportioned bathrooms. We think this is where you could afford to lose a bedroom – provide for En-suites to the main bedrooms and introduce a family bathroom – but the choice is yours. Three further bedrooms sit to the top floor – but again this could be become one large teenage lounge or games room perhaps.
Outside, there’s a detached ‘Coach House’ with room above, separate garage and garden store/workshop all set in just over 2 acres of garden and established woodland which includes a share of a ‘duck pond’. The views to the surround are stunning – although you might need to reduce some of the foliage to get the best of them!
