Green Gables is a substantial Edwardian house, originally dating we understand from 1904 and subsequently extended in the mid late 1990's. The current owners purchased the property in 1997 and embarked on a skilful refurbishment and sympathetic renovation of the property, to create a beautifully presented family home. Green Gables exhibits many features of the period, which have been sympathetically enhanced and improved and there are wonderful views to be enjoyed across the surrounding countryside. The well proportioned, versatile accommodation is complemented by traditional features with fireplaces in the principal reception rooms, with wood burning stove. There is a stunning, well planned and well equipped kitchen which is complemented by a Rayburn and a range cooker and has granite work surfaces. There are five double bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor and an upstairs sitting room enjoys a wonderful outlook and access through French doors onto a large south facing balcony. The property has the benefit of oil fired central heating.
The property is approached from a generous entrance porch into a wide hallway with bi fold doors leading through to the kitchen with an extensive range of units with granite work surfaces and complemented by a walk-in larder, large central island and Rayburn. Beyond the kitchen is the breakfast room with French doors leading out onto a south facing terrace, also one of two staircases to the first floor and door to a useful utility room, which in turn gives access to a ground floor bedroom with en-suite facilities. The principal reception rooms enjoy a triple aspect providing light and airy accommodation with feature fireplaces incorporating wood burning stoves. The ground floor accommodation is complemented by a study and downstairs cloakroom.
On the first floor there is generous, versatile accommodation enjoying views over the surrounding countryside with a wonderful south facing balcony leading off an informal sitting room. There are four further double bedrooms, three with en-suite facilities, shower room and sewing room.
Green Gables enjoys a wonderful, elevated location in mature gardens and grounds extending to 3.390 acres. The property is approached over a long driveway providing parking and turning and giving access to the two garages. To the front of the property there is a substantial vegetable garden with raised beds and greenhouse, together with a fenced and gated orchard and a chicken house. The remainder of the grounds are laid principally to lawn with a range of mature specimen trees, a substantial south facing terrace immediately behind the house, which is ideal for entertaining. The adjoining paddock has been planted with a variety of trees, which in time will provide a source of wood from coppicing.
