The handsome proportions and elegant good looks of this fine Edwardian home set it apart from so many of the homes found on the market today.
The classic bay windows, high ceilings, sash windows and an abundance of fireplaces are found throughout the accommodation. Edwardian style is beautifully displayed in many areas including on the generous first floor landing with its wonderful curved lines and plasterwork displayed on the staircase, a skill seldom found today.
The present owners have thoroughly enjoyed this home having raised their family here and, as the family grew, they have sympathetically improved the house to suit modern living standards whilst retaining the original charm and character.
This is such a great opportunity for those seeking a lifestyle change, perhaps moving out of London seeking a calmer way of life with first class education, bustling but friendly towns and wonderful countryside on their doorstep. All of this and yet London is still only a 30 minute commute away
Set in an elevated position overlooking the surrounding area one cannot help but be impressed with this imposing and elegant home. The traditional hallway is a delight with its high ceiling, stairs rising up to the first floor, and the view straight down the hallway to the kitchen toward the rear of the house. There is a traditional 'front room' or lounge, as we say today, that is a lovely inviting room with fireplace, large bay window and picture rails. A comfortable room for all the family. The dining room is perfect for entertaining and overlooks the rear garden with a door that opens into the family room. This part of the house has the great benefit of being suitable for a variety of uses and could easily form a self contained annexe or is ideal for those who work from home and need their own space. Of course it also works very well as additional space for the family to enjoy. The family room itself is a lovely large and bright room with an attractively appointed shower room off and also a deep built in storage cupboard. Stairs rise to the first floor bedroom/studio room. A good size double room with useful eaves storage. At the rear of the house is a really good size kitchen/breakfast room with an excellent range of units and plenty of room for the family to congregate into. Off the kitchen at the very rear of the house is a useful large utility room with door to a separate wc and with door into the garden.
Upstairs the original character of the house is found in abundance on the landing and in the three double bedrooms, each with attractive Edwardian fireplaces. The principle bedroom is a lovely bright room with large bay window to the front with views over the surrounding area and countryside beyond. On the top floor there are three more rooms, two charming bedrooms each with Edwardian fireplaces together with a good size office/studio/bedroom.
The house stands in an elevated position with a long driveway to the front that leads to the large double length garage and workshop that is to the side of the house. The garage, all or part of it, could easily be incorporated into the accommodation if desired. The front garden is attractively laid to lawn with mature shrubs and hedges.
To the rear of the house the garden is in distinct areas. Adjoining the house is a paved courtyard bordered by mature shrubs and steps lead up to an attractive deck beyond which the lawn extends again bordered by mature shrubs and trees.
