Appleby is an individual detached house set in a lovely secluded situation at the end of a gravelled drive. Standing within beautifully maintained gardens, the house was originally part of Laverstock House estate, the original stone and flint walls surrounding the plot giving testimony to its age. Converted from an outbuilding in the early 1960's, the house retains lovely mellow brick elevations and has an attractive, balanced façade.
Offering excellent, well presented accommodation, the house was extended and modernised by the current owners to create a perfect family home in this very convenient and sought after location.
Set at the end of a private drive, shared with one other, the layout of the house is well planned with all the principal rooms looking out across the secluded gardens.
The central glazed Entrance Porch opens to the large Dining Hall which has plenty of room for a large table and chairs and features a beautiful, original parquet floor, which continues into the spacious, elegant Drawing Room. Arranged around an attractive Minster style stone fireplace fitted with a Jetmaster this room forms a lovely living and entertaining space.
The enlargement of the Kitchen and the addition of a glazed extension has created the most fabulous Family/Breakfast Room that forms a wonderfully sociable hub. The kitchen is very well fitted with an extensive range of units that offer a huge amount of storage and is fully equipped with built in double oven, hob with extractor hood over and concealed fridge and freezer. There is a Lobby/Utility Area which gives further appliance and storage space and leads to the Cloakroom.
The Dining Area offers more than enough room to include a sofa or chairs and combines with the kitchen to create the perfect space to dine, do homework or congregate and talk whilst cooking.
On the first floor, the landing is light and spacious, a hatch with pull down ladder leads to large, boarded loft area. There are four bedrooms, three of which are double and include built in storage, and there is a well fitted family bathroom.
Approached over a gravelled drive, which offers ample private parking, there is a double garage, which has a work bench and power connected.
The Garden is of manageable size, is beautifully tended and planted, with the original stone and flint walls providing a lovely backdrop. An area of carefully maintained lawn is surrounded with well stocked flower and shrub borders, with mature apple trees and espalier pear. Rose beds create a fragrant border to the front elevation whilst a paved terrace provides the perfect spot to relax or entertain outside.
