THE AGENTS SAYS...
A house of two halves from the outside but a unified family home within, Jessamine House is a truly unique property. The oldest half of the property is 17th century and was added to in the 19th century, with the whole property being grade II listed. The property has a great deal of character, with period features such as exposed beams, stone floors, imposing inglenook fireplace, and more unusually a glass-topped well in the garden room! Alongside the period charm are modern home touches including a whole house air-conditioning system, blue tooth speakers and a built-in fish tank in the entrance hallway. The property sits in grounds of nearly 1 acre with a manicured lawned rear garden, woodland area and sizeable cider apple orchard with a large vegetable plot. If all that werent enough then there is also a separate, self contained 1 bedroom annexe and a huge triple garage/ workshop with plenty of off-road parking.
Entering the property, the dining room is found on the left. The entrance hall then widens out and provides access to and between the three interconnecting rooms at the rear and right-hand side of the property: the kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room and garden room. Stairs rise to the first floor. The lovely bright kitchen/breakfast room has been recently reconfigured and now boasts a double height ceiling, feature brick arch, roof window, oak worktops, range cooker, bluetooth speakers and a walk-in larder. The kitchen leads through into the garden room which has bifold doors (and a separate single door) opening to a large patio area, a cloakroom and its very own glass-topped well - now theres a talking point! Double doors at the back of the room open into the wonderfully large sitting room which has beautiful exposed beams in the wall and ceiling, and an enormous, stone, inglenook fireplace.
First & Second Floors
On the first floor there are four double bedrooms and the family bathroom, which has been recently updated and features a large shower and freestanding bath. Bedroom 5 benefits from a walk in wardrobe and there is a storage cupboard outside the entrance to bedroom 2. The second floor is occupied by the impressive master suite, with its characterful exposed beams, comprising a spacious bedroom, with automatic roof windows and blinds, and a sizeable dressing room/en-suite with twin sinks and large shower.
Recently redecorated throughout and comprising a kitchen, sitting room, bedroom and wet room.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
Outside, the property has been extensively landscaped with new driveway, parking, path, stone patio and lawn. The driveway (accessed via a timber 5 bar gate) runs parallel to the garden and leads to a large parking area with a triple garage to the left and the annexe to the right. The triple garage/workshop was completed about 5 years ago and has a 5.5 m wide electric door. Both the annexe and garage have been freshly rendered and painted. Beyond the garden and parking area is an orchard (mostly cider apple trees) with poly tunnel, large vegetable plot and wooden summerhouse at the rear. A woodland area separates the garden from the orchard and behind this area a 5 bar field gate (in the left hand boundary) provides access from the property to a public footpath.
Jessamine House is located in the heart of the popular and peaceful village of East Lambrook, which offers a church, public house and East Lambrook Manor Gardens with Tea Rooms.
