Elwy is a handsome family home finished in white painted render under a slate roof. Internally, the house combines light and spacious reception rooms with comfortable bedroom accommodation on the first and second floors. Of particular note is the beautifully proportioned drawing room, centred on an attractive open fireplace and French doors opening into the gardens. The kitchen is ‘open-plan’ in design, with adjoining sitting and dining areas.
The house has been carefully extended, including the new conservatory/dining area adjoining the sitting room, whilst on the second floor there is extensive secondary bedroom accommodation.
Gardens and Grounds
The gardens and grounds are a particular feature of the property, divided into a selection of ‘rooms’ interspersed by mature hedges and specimen trees. Two ornamental ponds are linked by a stream, adjoining which is the productive fruit cage and children’s play area.
There is a secluded ‘secret garden’, together with a heated swimming pool, a pool house and all-weather tennis court. The gardens benefit from a water sprinkler system.
Elwy has an extensive range of outbuildings, including a ‘coach house’ with working clock tower, providing garaging for four cars. There is an impressive stable block with seven loose boxes together with two large barns for storage and additional stabling closer to the house.
Divided into three distinct areas and comprising approximately 15 acres in total, the paddocks provide level, well-fenced grazing for horses and ponies:
Area 1 – Adjoining the house and gardens and divided into three paddocks, including a ‘starvation paddock’.
Area 2 – Approached off Bassetts Lane, this paddock comprises 5.4 acres. There is a selection of modern and traditional barns, including the old apple house which offers potential for development (subject to planning consent).
Area 3 – Approached off Tofts Chase, this parcel of land provides further grazing, over 5.9 acres, and is studded with a selection of mature trees.
