A rare chance to purchase a unique, detached family home in a wonderful location, with extensive and highly secluded gardens circa 2 acres, a hard tennis court, fruit orchard, and large brick built outbuilding, currently used for storage, but offering potential for the construction of a separate dwelling, if required, subject to planning.

The Ground Floor - A grand front door opens to a wonderful entrance porch which has sliding glass doors opening to a spacious reception hall which is the ideal place to greet family and friends. There is a sweeping staircase rising to the first floor galleried landing and two ornate wrought iron gates opening to an inner lobby which has doors to a large formal dining room overlooking the front, door to the refitted kitchen/ breakfast room with dual aspect panoramic views over the gardens and door to cloakroom, boot room and utility room. There are a further two good size reception rooms with the current seller using one which over looks the front of the property as a home office and the second as the formal drawing room which has an inset wood burner with lighting. There are 2 sets of French doors overlooking the south facing rear garden.

The First Floor - The spacious galleried landing has a hatch with pull down ladder leading to a large boarded attic with 3 Velux windows and excellent scope to convert STNP. Doors opening to all five double bedrooms, three of which have vanity wash basins and fitted wardrobes. The family bathroom has a white four piece suite including separate panelled bath and walk in shower cubicle. The large principal suite has 2 Juliette balconies plus a window to the front. Three linked walk in wardrobes and a luxuriously appointed ensuite with four piece suite including a separate bath and large shower cubicle.

Outside - Without doubt, the outside of this property is a central feature and boasts a high degree of privacy and seclusion by means of tree and hedge lined borders to all perimeters. There is a substantial block paved drive, garaging with light and power for four vehicles and extensive parking, leading to the front door. There is a front garden and formal gardens to the rear, leading to a large kitchen garden on one side enclosed by fencing and on the other to the orchard with a variety of plums, apples, pear, damson and sloes. From the formal garden a gate leads to the large brick outbuilding which has its own vehicular access and separate electricity supply and measures circa 45 ft x 30ft. This could be a footprint for a detached dwelling or office STNP, or for storage as currently. A grass pathway leads to the enclosed and raised hard tennis court with country views.
