Attractive and substantial village family home of over 4,290sqft set in delightful grounds with heated swimming pool, outbuildings, tennis court.
Sitting in lovely and established grounds, The Chase was built in the late 1800s, significantly extended in the 1960s and has been in the same ownership for the last 54 years. The property has been extended, improved and maintained over the years however there is definitely scope for the new owner to put their own stamp on it. The original house naturally incorporates the more formal reception rooms with a grand entrance hall, dining room and study. Each of these with high ceilings and the original lead windows and all with open fireplaces. The older section of the house also forms five bedrooms including a spacious guest suite with en-suite bathroom and a recently refurbished family bathroom. The newer sector of the house offers a large open plan kitchen/breakfast/living room fitted with a Smallbone kitchen, a fireplace fitted with woodburner and sliding glazed doors opening to the terrace, maximising the levels of natural light throughout the property. The upper floors in the extension create a superb master bedroom with his and hers bathrooms, a dressing room and a balcony. The main bedrooms all have delightful garden views.
The property is approached through a five bar gate opening to a gravelled driveway leading up the house, the triple garage and extensive parking. The detached garage block has three garages along with a useful adjoining room, currently used for storage (former a snooker room) but would serve as an excellent games room, home office or studio (water and power connected). The beautiful gardens are mainly laid to lawn with established tree and shrub planting and provide excellent levels of seclusion. The house sits in grounds of around 1.5 acres with lovely views from all rooms across the lawns and grass tennis court. There is a heated outdoor swimming pool with a paved terrace and a charming summer house with kitchenette, power and water. There is also a changing hut, pump house and large garden shed. Terraces to the back of the house provide superb al fresco dining and entertaining space, taking advantage of the west-facing aspect.
