Hale Holme is a spacious house,d ating from 1979 built of reconstituted stone under tiled roofs. In 2004/5 the house was extensively re-modeled, modernized and extended to now provide excellent and versatile family accommodation. The accommodation is arranged so that the principal rooms take full advantage of the views over the attractive gardens and is spacious and well suited to family living. The heart of the house is undoubtedly the lovely dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room with folding glazed doors to a glass roofed and decked verandah. The kitchen area is well fitted with a good range of cupboards, drawers and worktops together with integrated dishwasher and Rangemaster cooker. There is an adjoining utility room with door to outside and space for freezers and washing machine. The sitting room is also an attractive and light dual aspect room with fireplace, French doors to a sheltered and south facing terrace and the dining room is of good size. There is a library adjacent to the front door and a cloakroom. On the first floor a galleried landing continues the feel of space. The principal bedroom suite is of excellent size with a superb semi vaulted bedroom with Juliet balcony together with a large dressing room with fitted shelving and hanging space, as well as an en suite bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle, twin wash hand basins and a WC. The remaining bedrooms are all of double size and all have built in wardrobes/cupboards and the guest bedroom has an en suite shower room with large shower cubicle, WC and wash hand basin. The family bathroom is also of good size, with bath, separate shower cubicle, WC and wash hand basin. The house has oil fired central heating and sealed unit double glazing. Adjoining the accommodation is a large double car port with boiler room and store/workshop off. It is thought that this area could easily be converted to additional accommodation, perhaps for a dependent relative, subject to any necessary planning consents.
Hale Holme is approached via a long sweeping tarmac driveway leading to a spacious gravel parking and turning area adjacent to the house with plenty of space for the storage of caravan, boat, horse box and trailer. There is a detached open fronted barn with planning consent to provide further ancillary accommodation. To one side of the driveway is an orchard area with cider apples and on the other a post and rail fence divides the driveway from a large paddock, down to pasture and bound by mature hedging. The gardens are laid mainly to lawn interspersed by well stocked herbaceous and shrub beds as well as a productive orchard with apple, pear and plum trees. There is a fenced vegetable garden with greenhouse and raised beds. To one side of the garden and sheltered by mature willow trees is a spring fed pond with island for nesting ducks. A spur off the driveway leads up to a five bar gate and a stable with two loose boxes and a tack/feed store. Adjacent to this and to the garden is a further paddock down to grass and the property extends in all to approximately 3¾ acres.
