A substantial detached 7 bedroom family home, plus 2 bedroom annexe offering a wealth of character throughout, with a living space of over 5,000sq.ft which is set within its own impressive plot of just under 2/3 of an acre, which includes a range of brick built outbuildings
THE OLD HOUSE is an attractive, warm and friendly home which has been lived in and enjoyed by the same family for a number of decades. During this time the property has been subjected to an extensive programme of maintenance and improvement, as well as having been extended to increase the space for the Doctors Surgery, which from 1814 to 1991 had been part of the family home.
From the large entrance porch with triple glazed roof there is a doorway leading to the main entrance hall providing a wealth of natural light due to the high ceiling and high level window. Within the main entrance hall there is an opening leading into the open plan kitchen/breakfast room, as well as doors leading off to the main reception room, and two separate staircases leading to the first floor. A further staircase leads down to the cellar. Within the reception room and separate dining room there are impressive floorboards and skirtings, with both of these rooms, together with the family room enjoying views over the rear garden.
At ground floor level there can be found a cloakroom as well as a study which was used as part of the original surgery. This in turn leads to three further rooms which could potentially be used as an annexe with its own entrance door, and would comprise of a reception room, two bedrooms and a shower room. However what must be considered to be one of the main focal points of this property is the kitchen/breakfast room with its range of high quality fitted kitchen units, a four oven Aga and original Pamment tiled floor which continues through from the main entrance hall.
Within the kitchen/breakfast room there can also be found a woodburner which we understand provides a high level of heat throughout the home. From here there are doors leading off to the sun room, boot room and the walk in pantry.
At first floor level there can be found five bedrooms, together with two bathrooms and a cloakroom with one of the bathrooms having a freestanding roll top ball and claw bath. At second floor level there are two further bedrooms, both of which have beams to ceilings and are accessed off a landing, and together with several of the bedrooms on the first floor overlook the superb rear garden.
OUTSIDE Immediately to the front of The Old House there is a block paved driveway providing ample parking, beyond which is a set of double gates which in turn lead into a further block paved courtyard area. This area is enclosed by a range of brick and clunch built outbuildings with tiled roofs, including a garage. Further into the grounds you will pass by a raised pond with a water feature and the block paving continues providing a walkway to a further large brick patio area with tiled roof for al-fresco dining and overlooking the lawned garden. Within the garden there can also be found a wonderful covered walkway which leads to the substantial 7.31m greenhouse, whilst at the far end there can be found an 5.48m x 4.57m (external measurement) summerhouse which benefits from a 32 amp power supply as well as double glazed windows and a range of kitchen units together with a sink.
