This large and spacious detached home is immaculately presented. Entrance is through double doors into a magnificent, mahogany-panelled reception hall with a double-height, Venetian-style window to the south-facing elevation. This striking feature takes in the garden and floods the space with natural light.
From the hall a second set of double doors lead into an impressive U-shaped drawing room. Although generously proportioned, due to its practical shape it’s easy to see how the space can be broken up to create areas for relaxing, reading, entertaining, or as a study. The focal point is without doubt a striking marble fireplace which was rescued and restored by the current owners.
The oak-panelled morning room leads off the hallway. This cosy snug with its inglenook fireplace is the only remaining part of the original house, once known as Prior Manor, and dates back to 1890.
The breakfasting kitchen is considerable and incorporates an informal dining area, as well as a spacious conservatory. It is fitted with beech units beneath solid-granite worktops - and has a matching granite floor. At its centre is a large island unit, also with a granite top and a preparation sink. Appliances include a Falcon professional, range-style cooker with a matching extractor, an American-style fridge freezer and an integrated dishwasher.
Beyond the kitchen is a fully tiled utility room, also with a granite floor. It is fitted with high-gloss white units and an integrated washer/dryer. From here a second door leads into a large double garage which has electric doors and a tiled floor. The space also houses a boiler room and has its own small utility room with hot and cold running water.
Undoubtedly the most fascinating feature of this property is the secret room which is concealed behind the fireplace in the sitting room. It is currently used as a library and as such, is lined with full-height bookcases.
A formal dining room with a marble fireplace and a downstairs cloakroom with heritage-style sanitary ware complete the downstairs living accommodation.
A grand staircase leads up from the hall to a galleried landing, complete with minstrels’ gallery. There are four bedrooms, including the principal suite which boasts a sitting area, a bank of fitted wardrobes and designer en-suite facilities. The contemporary bathroom is fitted with Villeroy and Boch sanitary ware and an Axor Starck basin with matching taps. There is also a feature chrome-spiral radiator and a large walk-in shower with bespoke mirrored glass.
The remaining three bedrooms are light and spacious with plenty of storage and en-suite bathrooms. These are all fully tiled and are finished with granite window sills and skirting boards.
Entry is via remote-controlled access, with two gated entrances leading on to a cobbled drive. There is space enough for a number of cars and the property also has an integrated double garage.
The beautifully maintained south-facing rear garden is surrounded by mature trees which help create a very private haven. The area is laid mostly to lawn with well-planted herbaceous borders and an Indian-stone sun terrace which surrounds the house on three sides. A natural stone waterfall and a stone-built summerhouse stand in a secluded corner. The garden is also complemented by a small pond, ornamental standing stones and has a practical composting area.
