A truly unique opportunity to purchase a characterful house and a spacious, modern bungalow set in approximately 1.7 acres in the stunning Roncombe Valley.
This detached house is believed to have origins dating back to c.1700 when it was built as a market garden house for Sand; an Elizabethan Manor House located half a mile down the lane.
Offering scope for modernisation, Halfway House is a double fronted characterful property with some lovely period features, particularly in the main reception room with beamed ceiling, inglenook and winder staircase. The accommodation is roomy with a second reception room to the ground floor which has a beautiful parquet floor (currently used as a fourth bedroom). There is also a separate formal dining space adjacent to the kitchen and a shower room/wet room, garden room and utility area in a later rear extension. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms; two doubles and a single, and a generous bathroom with separate bath and shower cubicle. The property offers some fabulous views across Roncombe Valley to the East.
The bungalow is a substantial, 4-5 bedroom, detached modern residence. It originated as a converted stable block which has been considerably extended to create the fabulous home that we find today with some exciting architectural features including a vaulted reception room with exposed beams. The clever and thoughtful use of glass throughout the property allows for the bungalow to be bathed in natural light and for incredible views to be enjoyed across the Roncombe Valley in the East.
The bungalow has been thoughtfully designed with modern living in mind with a large, vaulted central living space incorporating a sleek modern kitchen with separate utility room adjacent and sliding doors from the living space onto a large terrace with incredible views across the valley. Three of the bedrooms offer ensuite facilities coupled with a vaulted family bathroom with clawfoot bath, glass brick wall and twin basins. In the original part of the property are two further rooms which are particularly adaptable in their use and could be further bedrooms or a second reception room and study as required.
The properties are approached from Roncombe Hill into a driveway which offers ample parking and turning space with a second driveway leading up to the bungalow and an additional parking area ensuring a good degree of separation between the two properties. The grounds lie principally to the South and East of the properties and offer a wonderful setting with a flat area of lawn to the South East of Halfway House which has been used as a tennis court in the past. The grounds in total extend to approximately 1.7 acres and include a small paddock to the South.
This is an incredibly rare opportunity to purchase two separate dwellings together. Those seeking accommodation for extended families, yet with a degree of privacy and separation should certainly consider Halfway House and Halfway Bungalow as a strong option.
Nestled in a quiet location in the Roncombe Valley enjoying a sheltered and sunny south-easterly aspect and superb country views, Halfway House and Bungalow occupy an enviable position.
