Named after the leafy Lime tree at the end of the garden, Withens is a delightful Arts and Crafts home built in the 1920's by reputable house builder Jarvis, which retains a wealth of original period detailing.
From rich oak flooring, curved tall ceilings and wooden latch doors to the characteristic multi-pane windows so typical of this period, Withens is a rare authentic gem.
From the top of Manland Avenue, a small gravelled driveway leads to the front door and a separate garage adjacent.
Concealed by a sturdy oak door (with original Arts & Crafts forged door knocker), an outer lobby leads in to the inner hallway with burnished oak flooring leading into the principal reception rooms. The hallway has been cleverly positioned north east ensuring that all the living areas make the most of their southerly aspect.
On the ground floor there is a good complement of rooms, ideal in their flexibility for family living. A large sitting room overlooking the garden, with distinctive feature fireplace takes pride of place, brightly lit by windows on two sides facing south and west.
Adjacent there is a very spacious dining room, which has a delightful conservatory overlooking the garden.
There is a pretty kitchen breakfast room located at one end of the house with a robust red Aga to warm the room and fabulous walk in larder. There is also the original built in cupboards which are a perfect home for prized china and a canteen of cutlery. There is also a useful utility room leading out to the sheltered courtyard and garden beyond.
Upstairs there are 5 bedrooms, one with shower, one with a hand basin, and one with a study area. There is a large family bathroom with separate wc., which is complemented by the downstairs wc.
The house is set towards one end of its grounds ensuring that the garden in all its splendour can be seen from most rooms. There is a small terrace wrapping around the rear elevation, and a charming courtyard tucked between the garage and kitchen.
Along one boundary is a grape draped loggia with barbecue area which faces south west; a tremendous space to entertain during warmer months. There are wide level lawns with a delightful pond providing an attractive backdrop to the large mature lime which shades a sheltered sitting area at the southern end of the garden.
Set to one side of the house there is a tandem garage which has a separate workshop area. There is also a useful greenhouse tucked behind and very large detached timber garage which opens out onto Station Road.
To the front of the house is a gravelled driveway providing off-street parking for 2/3 cars.View payable Stamp Duty for this property
