Oozing with elegance, character and period details – including original sash windows, shutters and ceiling cornices, this double-fronted Georgian house is a very special place.
You’ll feel the sense of presence it commands as you walk up the pathway, flanked by manicured lawns to each side, to the portico entrance.
Step inside to the hallway, off which are the living areas. The kitchen/breakfast room features a flag-stoned floor and granite worktops, an oil-fired Aga, an electric oven and hob, an American style fridge-freezer, a coffee machine and pretty much everything you could need to self-cater for a large group.
There’s also a kitchen island, a walk-in pantry, a pew bench and little touches including a radio and a Bose iPod docking station. Off the kitchen is a utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer.
Special meals can be enjoyed all together in the formal dining room with its chandelier, huge table and open fireplace. There’s also an antique rocking horse that the kids will adore.
When it comes to relaxing or socialising, there’s the drawing room with its comfy sofas and armchairs, open fire, 47-inch TV, Blue-ray DVD player and Bose sound dock. Or, the snug, with its TV and DVD player, is great for children to chill out or play.
The house has six beautifully appointed bedrooms. Bedroom one is the master suite and features a super-king-size sleigh bed, a wardrobe, easy chair and writing bureau, plus there’s a TV and an en-suite bathroom with bath and shower attachment, WC, basin and heated towel rail.
