This substantial and particularly elegant family house is set back behind a large gravelled driveway providing off street parking for several cars and access to a garage. The accommodation is generously proportioned throughout, practical, yet flexible, configured over three floors and provides a good balance between living and more formal entertaining. The house which retains much of the original Victorian architecture has many notable features which include some wonderful fireplaces, tall corniced ceilings and an elegant staircase. The generous landings further emphasise the feeling of space and light as do the ceiling heights and open aspect to the rear. The ground floor comprises a large double reception room, divided by folding doors and currently arranged as a formal dining room to the front and grand drawing room to the rear, with French doors opening onto the garden. A delightful family room creates a very cosy feel, and there is also a large kitchen/breakfast room opening onto the charming mature garden. In addition there is a cloakroom, side access via a side garage, utility room and access to a very useable cellar and wine cellar.
The large landing on the first floor creates a wonderful country house feel and gives access to a well appointed master bedroom with en suite bathroom and dressing room, two further guest bedrooms and a further bathroom with a separate cloakroom. The top floor completes the accommodation with three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom, making it ideal for children and a nanny.
The mature 76ft garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature borders and trees, a large patio area providing great space for entertaining, and access back into the garage. In addition, the garden benefits from a plethora of fruit bearing trees including Plum, Crab Apple and Apple. The indoor swimming pool is located to the rear and benefits from large sliding doors opening onto the garden, a plant room, sauna and shower room.View payable Stamp Duty for this property
