Olive Mead has been a cherished family home and enjoys wonderful bright and spacious rooms with high ceilings and double aspects. Many period features have been retained including the tiled floor in the entrance hall, picture rails and sash windows.
The property is entered though an arched open porch with a seat inset to one side and a window out to the other. The front door leads into an inviting entrance hall located in the centre of the house with a beautiful tiled floor, a door out to the rear of the property and turned staircase with galleried landing leading up to the first floor. To the right of the entrance hall a door leads into the double aspect drawing room with a bay window looking out towards the front of the property. A focal point of the room is the open fireplace with a Rayburn grate. To the left of the entrance hall is the sitting room which also has a double aspect and a fireplace with woodburning stove inset.
At the far end of the entrance hall a door leads into the welcoming kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen has a tiled floor and an excellent range of bespoke Shaker style painted cabinets with iroko work surfaces and an inset Belfast sink. There is a Rangemaster dual range oven and integral appliances comprise a larder fridge and dishwasher. In the breakfast room area there is a wooden floor and a fireplace with a built in floor to ceiling storage cupboard to one side. On from the kitchen a door leads into the boot room, the perfect place to kick off wellies and hang coats after spending time in the garden or on a long walk in the surrounding countryside beyond. Off the boot room is a cloakroom and a utility room with a Butler sink and space and plumbing for a washing machine. There is an external door from the boot room providing access to the rear of the property.
On the first floor from the attractive galleried landing there is access to three double aspect double bedrooms which all enjoy wonderful views across Olivemeade's grounds. Two of the bedrooms are located at the front of the property and one has a feature fireplace and a vanity unit with wash hand basin. The family bathroom has a stand alone roll top bath, corner shower cubicle, wash hand basin and low level WC. From the landing area there is access to the airing cupboard and part boarded loft. The vendors are currently in the process of installing an en suite in the 2nd bedroom.
The house is approached through double gates onto a gravelled driveway with a turning circle and parking for numerous vehicles. The gardens wrap around the property and are predominantly laid to lawn with well stocked borders, mature trees and shrubs. To the rear of the property is a paved terrace which makes the perfect spot for al fresco dining. To one side of the driveway is a double garage of stone construction with double wooden doors and a single door. Inside the garage there is a mezzanine floor, ideal for storage along with power and light. There are two wooden storage sheds in the grounds and an outside water tap.
