The Property:

Constructed in 1948, the current owners purchased the property in 1996 and have improved the house significantly by increasing the size, balance of accommodation and natural light, whilst maintaining features reminiscent of Voysey and Lutyens such as decorative heart-shaped features, tile edged brick designs, chimney detailing and leaded light windows. The main house has a stunning entrance hall with double height oak windows with leaded light/glazing creating a galleried landing flooded with natural light, accessed by a bespoke oak staircase. There are three reception rooms on the ground floor; a drawing room with a large open fireplace and French doors opening onto the rear terrace, a sitting room and a dining room which is currently home to a lovely refectory table ideal for large gatherings. The kitchen has been fitted with a bespoke oak kitchen, granite worktops and polished slate floor, and has space for a table for everyday dining. A double bedroom and an adjacent shower room create flexibility and complete the downstairs accommodation. To the first floor is a large master bedroom with a feature bay window overlooking the rear gardens and a large en-suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms served by a sumptuous family bathroom. In 2010 the currents owners built a stunning oak open bay double garage and an annexe, which provides excellent accommodation over two floors and lends itself to being a 'granny' annexe or accommodation for a nanny/au pair. A generous sitting/dining room with French doors opens onto a terrace with a quality kitchen just off this space. The first floor has two large double bedrooms which share a shower room. Externally the gardens are a delight with the property set back from the lane behind a gate which opens onto the gravelled driveway. The property is well-screened with a pagoda and wisteria - hiding the house from the road with various fruit and other trees and a brick path which allows access to the house which is separated from the annexe by a centralised courtyard and a pond providing tranquillity. There are also plenty of mature brick bordered beds with perennial shrubs and flowers. The garden to the rear has a terrace directly behind the house which opens onto a lawn, to one side is a painted cedar and brick Victorian style greenhouse, fruit trees including pear and cherry. There are raised vegetable beds and a large fruit cage containing raspberry, loganberry, blueberry, redcurrant and blackcurrant bushes, as well as an additional water feature and a large workshop.
