Orchard House is situated in beautiful rural location and is set well back from the lane in a private position, approached through secure in and out electric gates and over a long brick paved drive. The house has brick elevations under a clay tiled roof with leaded light windows. The present owners have been in residence for over 20 years and have truly loved the house, fastidiously undertaking a regular programme of maintenance to keep it in prime order.
A covered porch supported on oak posts has double doors to a splendid entrance hall, from where a door opens into the spacious reception hall, a lovely room with an elegant sweeping staircase at the heart of the house. Double doors lead to the beautifully proportioned drawing room with a striking decor set off by a decorative fireplace and moulded cornice and ceiling panels. Next door is the snooker room, with decorative brickwork walls. The dining room has a feature fireplace and, with four windows, is a bright room. The study and cloakroom are also accessed from the hall. The kitchen/breakfast room to the rear of the house has recently been refitted with high quality bespoke cabinets with marble work surfaces, complemented by a three-oven Total Control electric Aga with module. The breakfast room has French windows opening direct to the swimming pool area, a wonderful place to relax. At the rear of the house are a utility room and a most comfortable guest suite of bedroom and shower room. The spacious first floor landing has a lovely view over surrounding fields/countryside to the front. The luxurious master suite comprises a dual aspect bedroom, dressing room with walk-in wardrobe and large en-suite bathroom, and provides a fitting haven for the owners. The three further bedrooms and family bathroom are beautifully appointed and have views over the gardens and surrounding countryside.
The boundary with the lane is marked by an impressive brick wall with high hedge behind. The long drive leads to a large parking and turning area, and access to the first garage, a quadruple. The drive continues past the front of the house with an attractive oak-framed and tiled double car port almost opposite the front door. Further garaging lies beyond.
The gardens are mature and well-tended, and have some beautiful trees and shrubs setting off the lawns. There is a summer house in the front garden and a paved terrace with fish pond at the rear. To the side is the swimming pool area, a wonderful sun trap for summer time lazing, with palm trees creating a Mediterranean feel. Nearby is the gym and pool room. To the east of the house is a large expanse of parkland, bordered by high hedging, a superb area for recreation.
