Little Acre is thought to date from the 1920's. In 2010 it was the subject of comprehensive modernisation and refurbishment. Works included new installations, replacement windows, comprehensive insulation, a kitchen re-fit with a new Aga and the installation of two bathrooms and a ground floor shower room. The house is now presented to a high standard in line with 21st Century expectations, with loads of storage and retaining the best features of the original building, most notably parquet floors, picture rails, open fireplaces and original doors and furniture.
On the ground floor, an entrance hall with quarry tiled floor opens to the dining room with parquet flooring and staircase. The sitting room has a triple aspect, parquet flooring and a gas fire, as well as French casements out to the terrace. The study also has a gas fire and could be used as an occasional bedroom in conjunction with the ground floor cloak/shower room. The kitchen breakfast room is very well fitted and equipped and includes a three oven gas aga. The back hall/utility room has a Belfast sink with timber drainer, space for a washing machine and the boiler. A wide staircase with hardwood handrail and shaped blasters, leads up to the first floor past a feature stained glass window. There are five bedrooms, three of which enjoy the southerly aspect and views across the town to Dancing Hill. They are served by two bathrooms, one of which includes a separate shower, the other capable of being used ensuite with one of the bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms have fitted wardrobes. This is a lovely house with plenty of light, good proportions and with an emphasis on practicality and comfort.
A five bar gate opens to a gravelled drive and turning area flanked by mature shrubs and trees. There is a large garage with car wash hard standing adjacent. To the rear, there is a former vegetable garden with fig, apple trees and soft fruit protected by a yew hedge. The rear summer house is currently used as a garden store. The majority of the garden lies to the front and south where paved terrace overlooks the main sweep of lawn, enclosed by wide and colourful borders set against mature hedges of yew and conifer. A south west facing summer house provides an ideal gin and tonic spot. The garden contains a variety of specimen trees and shrubs, and offers a good degree of privacy and seclusion.
