A characterful detached period property with scope for modernisation, set in the stunning Roncombe Valley within approximately 3/4 acre of grounds.
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 beautiful parquet flooring (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.
Halfway House is approached from Roncombe Hill into a driveway which offers ample parking and turning space with a second driveway leading up to Halfway Bungalow. The grounds lie principally to the South-East of the property and offer a wonderful setting with fabulous views. There is a paved terrace leading onto a fairly level expanse of lawn which has been used as a tennis court in the past. The grounds in total extend to approximately 0.75 of an acre with opportunity to purchase a further half acre (approx.) paddock adjacent by separate negotiation.
Nestled in a quiet location in the Roncombe Valley enjoying a sheltered and sunny South-Easterly aspect and superb country views, Halfway House occupies an enviable position.
