This handsome Edwardian house was originally built as a private house in the early 20th Century. In later years, the house was used as a children’s home and by the end of the 20th Century, it had fallen into disrepair. An extensive conversion programme took place in 1995, reverting the house to its former use as a private residence. The current owners have substantially re-modelled the house, including rewiring and re-plumbing in 2003/4. Two new ’industrial’ boilers were fitted in 2012. More recently, the kitchen/sitting room/breakfast room was redesigned, creating a magnificent family space with bi-folding doors opening onto the covered and heated, paved terrace, ideal for summer evenings.
Of particular note is the beautifully proportioned drawing room measuring 25’11 x 24’8 and centred on an attractive open fireplace.
The gardens and grounds provide an idyllic, mature setting. There is an extensive area of lawn to the front, studded with a selection of mature deciduous and evergreen trees, whilst the gardens to the rear are very private and focus on a charming ornamental pond. There are three double garages adjoining the cottage which would be ideal for a dependent relative.
