A beautifully renovated detached period house, set in approximately 3/4 acre of manicured gardens. The original part of the house is flint and brick construction, it is listed in local parish records and is believed to date back 200 years. When the current owners moved in 13 years ago, the house required considerable work. They have since extended and lovingly restored the property with no expense spared, creating a wonderful family home where the original features are complemented by a modern interior with unique finishing touches. In addition to the 5 double bedrooms in the main house, there is an attached one bedroom cottage/annexe, ideal for accommodating a relative or Au Pair.
The front door opens into a generous entrance hall, with stairs leading to the first floor and solid oak flooring. There is a downstairs WC, an understairs coat cupboard and doors leading to the reception rooms. The family room is a useful extra reception room, with double aspect windows, a fireplace and solid wood flooring which continues into the adjacent study that also has double aspect windows and a fireplace. The main sitting room is a fantastic room year round, with a lovely view of the garden and doors leading outside in the summer time, as well as an open fire to create a cosy atmosphere through the winter months. The sitting room is open to the large and stylish kitchen/dining room which is the heart of the home. Fitted with a bespoke range of wall and base units from Great British Kitchens, with a cracked ice splashback and granite worktop over incorporating a double butler sink and drainer. There is an integrated Smeg dishwasher and a range oven with 6 ring hob and extractor hood, and space for a large American style fridge/freezer. The central island is an eye-catching feature with a custom made silver mirror cracked ice worktop incorporating a round sink.
