Elmbrook is an attractive early 19th Century property situated in this small hamlet, and is constructed of predominately white washed stone elevation under a pitched tiled roof with a combination of traditional timber windows including sash windows to the front and some double glazing. The property has a wonderful feel with a wealth of period features and provides a very comfortable living ideal for entertaining with a good size kitchen/breakfast room at the heart of the house.
Approximately thirteen years ago the current owners created the wonderful garden room/reception hall including the boot room and the utility room behind, and it is this room that is now used for the main entrance with attractive terracotta flooring and a glazed Georgian style door leads to the well proportioned kitchen/breakfast room, again with terracotta tiled floor and with a pleasant outlook over the gardens and countryside beyond. There is an excellent range of wall and floor units with worktops above, incorporating one and a half bowl sink, attractive tile splash backs, Belling Format cooker with four ring electric hob and extractor hood above, Kenwood dishwasher and under counter fridge with icebox. The room naturally divides into kitchen and sitting areas and a stripped pine latch door leads to the well proportioned dining room with feature fire place, part exposed stone walls and another striped pine door leading to the L shaped utility room with base unit and stainless steel sink, plumbing and space for washing machines, a door to the boiler cupboard housing Camray oil boiler and a further door to the guest cloak room/shower room with tilled shower cubicle, part tiled walls, pedestal wash basin and W.C. A further stripped pine door leads to the boot room with floor and wall units and work tops. A glazed door to the side alleyway and further timber doors leading to a alleyway which in turn has access to the extremely useful store which has been re-roofed, has power and light and also houses the oil tank. Of particular note is the wonderful west facing sitting room, ideal for entertaining with fire place with Villager wood burner, two bay windows and half glazed front door. At the far end is the staircase which has a single flight leading to the first floor.
The spacious and bright landing has a large shelved airing cupboard housing a hot water cylinder, with attractive pine doors leading to the four bedrooms, all of which are bright with an attractive outlook over the neighbouring gardens and countryside beyond. Overall Elmbrook is a very comfortable and charming village house.
The property is entered off Whitechurch Lane via a double five barred gate leading to a concrete parking and turning area adjacent to a traditionally built and recently refurbished garage/store with double timber doors, power and light. Adjacent to this is the garden room/reception hall. There are attractive low level stone walls, one of which with a raised bed with lavender and honeysuckle. Steps lead down to a lawned area, bounded by stone walling with a log store, and raised flower beds. Whilst the gardens are small, they provide plenty of amenity area and are relatively secluded and are easy to maintain and provide a delightful setting for the property.
