DOMVS in association with Fine & Country, is delighted to offer this IMPRESSIVE PERIOD PROPERTY with a range of generous reception rooms and SIX BEDROOMS. The IMPECCABLE DECOR complements the propertys period features with a contemporary twist on a traditional theme. The property also offers a stunning split level landscaped garden with a TRIPLE GARAGE and coach house.
This beautiful Regency house is understood to have been constructed around 1805, with a grand addition approximately 50 years later. The handsome rooms are elegantly proportioned with some delightful cornicing, and as well as fine sash windows with original shutters, there are some attractive fireplaces. The present owners have undertaken a sympathetic programme of improvement to the house and have also added a triple garage block with spacious room above. It is undoubtedly a fine family home with much to commend it.
The property is entered via a generous HALLWAY with a sweeping timber staircase and polished timber panelled doors leading to the ground floor accommodation. A door leads to a CELLAR with attractive brick archways housing wine storage, and a power system for the house.
On the GROUND FLOOR, an impressive KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM enjoys a triple aspect and underfloor heating. An original character fireplace has space for an Aga or Range, and there is an array of bespoke timber kitchen units together with a built-in French dresser, further shelving for cookbooks, and a full-height matching cupboard with space for a fridge and freezer, together with a built-in dishwasher. The Belfast double sink has both a mixer tap and a chilled and boil tap. The formal DINING ROOM has a brick fireplace(currently capped), sash window with original shutters, and engineered timber flooring with under-floor heating. An inner hallway leads to a stunning DRAWING ROOM with a beautiful fireplace with inset woodburner and two characterful arched recesses. Deep skirting boards, cornicing, picture railing and sash windows add to the overall appeal, and French doors give immediate access to the garden. There is also a UTILITY/CLOAKROOM with space for a washing machine and tumble dryer hidden from view in a bespoke cupboard, Armitage Shanks sink and low level WC. The Vaillant boiler is also located here.
A return staircase leads to the FIRST FLOOR landing with plentiful light coming from the sash pane window. Panelled doors lead to the following rooms:
A large MASTER BEDROOM with three sash windows enjoys a double aspect overlooking surrounding countryside and private gardens. There is a BATHROOM with slipper bath, low-level WC and pedestal wash-hand basin. In addition, a well-fitted DRESSING ROOM with a full range of built-in cupboards provides ample hanging and storage space. Generous BEDROOM TWO is another double room with two built-in cupboards providing ample shelving. BEDROOM THREE, also a double room, has an original fireplace and window seat with built-in storage.

There are three bedrooms on this floor, each a double room. BEDROOM FOUR is located to the front, and BEDROOM FIVE has an original fireplace and window seat with built-in storage.

The property is approached via a gravel drive with original brick walling, leading through to a further gravelled drive and impressive TRIPLE GARAGE BLOCK with timber up-and-over doors. Within the garage is a gardeners WC, and an internal staircase leading to a large and light STUDIO/WORK ROOM with six Velux windows and two further side windows with a view over the garden. There is ample storage and shelving, plentiful power points and a built-in sink unit. Of further note is the COACH HOUSE, which is attached to the main property, has power, and offers much potential for a variety of uses.

It is one of the oldest properties in the area, and has been sympathetically improved by the present owners.
