This impressive home built in 1928 boasts a glamorous history having been owned by a famous actress of the 1940’s and more recently having undergone significant improvements by the current owners. On the ground floor the principal reception rooms include a very large beamed drawing room with a grand stone minster-style open grate fireplace. Adjacent is a good size formal dining room with sliding doors into a bright and well proportioned conservatory with tiled floor and double doors out onto the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room includes a range of floor and wall mounted units, extensive granite work surfaces and a good range of domestic equipment. Another impressive feature of this home is the large entertainment room currently housing a snooker table which could alternatively make an ideal cinema/media room. Sliding doors lead to an enclosed swimming pool complex housing a 9m x 6m swimming pool which is currently decommissioned but could easily be reinstated. This area also includes a changing room with shower facilities and a plant room. Also on the ground floor is an informal sitting room with doors onto a beautiful raised patio and the rear garden.
On the first floor five good size double bedrooms include a master with a well equipped en suite bathroom, bedroom two with an en suite shower room and a further bathroom which serves bedroom three and the first floor study. This versatile room has a vaulted ceiling with velux windows and can be approached via a separate staircase. Bedrooms four and five are served by a family bathroom.
The property is approached over a long brick paviour driveway with adjacent areas of well manicured lawns and flower beds and borders, well screened by mature hedging. To the rear of the property an attractive raised patio area features an ornamental pond with water feature and large impressive lawns which extend to in excess of 200 feet and are enclosed by timber fencing. There is a triple garage with electrically operated up and over doors, power and light.
