Part of our Signature collection, this truly stunning 5 bedroom detached house dates back to the 1920’s and was extended and remodelled in 2017 to form a fine home with over 4,000 sq ft. of accommodation. There is also garaging for 4 cars and a studio, all set in 2.5 acres close to the local priory, church and golf course.

The house benefits from replacement double glazing and gas fired central heating with a mix of radiators and under floor heating now faces into its own grounds with a private driveway coming off Church Hill. Two double garages and ample parking is found round the back with a studio above one of them. Also by the house is a heated swimming pool and plant room.

The house is entered from a front to back split-level hall with oak floor and flows through into the reception hall where the oak staircase leads up to the different first floor levels. Beneath is a step down into a snug area. The sitting room has a central fireplace with wood burning stove, dual aspect and oak flooring. Double doors lead on to the dining room with bi-fold doors out to both the terrace and swimming pool and also has oak flooring and further entrance from the hall. The study is a wonderful size and could also be used as a further bedroom with oak flooring. There is a Guest double bedroom which also embraces the oak flooring and has an en suite with shower, vanity unit wash basin and toilet. A cloakroom provides a further toilet whilst there is a utility with wooden worksurfaces, butler sink with cupboard storage and plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer and tiled flooring.

The kitchen/breakfast room is stunning with triple aspect overlooking the grounds and French doors opening out on to the terrace. At the centre of the room is a wooden topped island with space for stools and cupboards and drawers beneath. A
5-ring induction hob is built in with double oven under. Further cooking is available from an electric AGA with warming plate, 2 hob plates and 4 ovens. Along one wall is a bank of cupboards with space between for an American style fridge/freezer. There are granite worksurfaces with cupboards and drawers beneath and space for 2 wine coolers and further granite worksurfaces with storage around a double bowl sink with integral dishwasher. The room has tiled flooring whilst in the corner of the room is a staircase leading down to the basement.

The basement has a family room which has tiled flooring and a plant room with gas fired boiler, megaflow tank and water softener. The room is suitable for a variety of uses as games or hobbies room or as a gym. It can also be accessed from an outside staircase.

Stairs lead up to the first floor splitting to one bedroom and then leading up to a further three. The split-level landing has a linen cupboard and a gallery looking down to the hall. The principal bedroom has built in wardrobes and a large en suite with tiled panel bath with independent shower above, tiled shower cubicle, vanity wash basin and a toilet. The second bedroom is larger and has an en suite shower room with tiled shower cubicle with vanity wash basin and toilet. The fourth bedroom is also on this side of the house with access to a long eaves storage area and there is also the main bathroom with tiled panel bath with independent shower above, further shower area with glass screen, vanity unit wash basin and toilet. The third bedroom is an excellent size double with its own staircase to a landing with deep storage cupboard and has a dual aspect.

Outside
The property has now been reversed having originally fronted Church Hill. The drive is found off the back private drive to the Priory, with its own gated shingle driveway passing the ‘new’ front of the house and round to an extensive parking area with the barn/double garage (23’3 x 21’8) with power and light and adjoining log store. The modern double garage (21’2 x 17’10) has been beautifully finished with painted floor and inspection pit with toilet facilities and a sink and radiator. A side lobby leads up to a first-floor studio or home office with power, lighting and heating with a radiator.

At the front of the house is a raised terrace with railings leading round to the pool area with heated swimming pool with plant room. Opposite the drive at the front of the property is extensive lawns with hedging. The majority of the land is laid to grass and is found at the side beyond the garages.

The rear garden again has lawns and shrubs and has a block paved pathway, enclosed paved terrace and gateway to Church Hill giving pedestrian access to the Church and High Street. The total plot extends to 2.5 acres.
