Owners Comment

“The intrinsic peaceful environment is one of the features I most enjoy about Yew Tree House. The immediate picturesque countryside and beautiful scenic walks have been an absolute pleasure. It has also adequately served my enthusiasm for classic and modern cars with the extensive garaging and parking space. It also provides ideal communication links with easy access to Parkway station and direct line to London Waterloo.”

“The lower barn is versatile in its potential usage. It could serve as an independent annex, an excellent office or additional garaging with space above for a gym/studio.”

Introduction

A recently constructed four bay garage with gym/studio is supplemented by generous parking and planning consent for a further detached double garage which could easily be adapted to provide a useful self contained annex (subject to planning permission). The house features much period charm associated with its era including attractive brick fireplaces, exposed timbers and recently refurbished sash windows to the bay frontage. The views from every aspect of the house are lovely, being surrounded by countryside and the gardens host a sunny aspect and an impressive summer house which offers a kitchen area and separate shower room. The house provides approximately 2300sqft of living space yet offers potential for further extension if required.

Description

A character storm porch opens into the entrance hall which is bright and light, features the attractive staircase and a large understairs cupboard. The sitting room has all the evidence of its heritage with a brick fireplace, timber mantle and inset woodburning stove. There are traditional built in cupboards and shelving to each side and the bay window features recently fitted elegant sash windows with views over the field. The kitchen living area spans the full width of the back of the house with three accesses to the garden, enjoying much natural light. The kitchen is fitted with a range of cottage style units and wooden worktops centred around a modern Falcon range with induction hob, two ovens and warming drawer. There are various recesses ideal for further appliances, larders or storage which create an open feel to the area including a dining venue overlooking the garden. There is a boot room with garden access and a downstairs cloakroom. The utility room is substantial hosting a Butler sink, storage and plumbing for appliances with direct external access. The office enjoys extensive natural light via skylights and large picture windows with exposed timber and brickwork. The family room is dual in aspect with double doors to the sun patio and offers much versatility in its usage.

The master bedroom affords lovely front aspect views via the bay with feature wooden sash windows. There are twin double wardrobes and a separate dressing room. It is served by an attractive ensuite shower room comprising a large double glazed cubicle, vanity unit and low level WC. The three further bedrooms are served by the large family bathroom comprising deep bath, low level WC, wash hand basin, shower cubicle and airing cupboard.

Outside

The property is approached via an automated five bar gate and wide gravel driveway culminating in the impressive car barn with generous turning and parking. The car barn hosts four wide garages and a useful studio/gym to the side along with a workshop space. The formal gardens are a real feature of the house, predominantly lawned with a lovely patio terrace extending from the property to the Summer House which is an ideal entertainment or relaxation venue enjoying a sunny aspect. The Summer House includes a kitchen living room and an ensuite shower room. Although currently lawned there is potential separate vehicular access to the orchard via a five bar gate where a gravel driveway approaches the proposed second garage block and log store denoted by the footings which are already in place. This could serve as an ideal self contained annex. In the orchard the lawns are studded with various fruit trees and all of the garden is enclosed by post and rail fencing.
