This impressive statement home, dating back to the late Victorian period, offers an exceptional property with over 5,000 square feet of accommodation. Packed with character features typical of the nineteenth century, such as Minton flooring, stained-glass and elegant marble fireplaces, this is undoubtedly one of the most exceptional nineteenth-century homes in town. Few properties can compete with the size and versatility on offer here.

The main property exudes the grandeur and elegance one would expect, with later additions adding a contemporary spin to the layout, including a spacious family kitchen at the rear of the house. An adjoining self-contained wing/annexe adds another dimension and is among the best you are likely to find, arranged over two floors. It is ideal for those with dependent relatives or those interested in exploring additional revenue streams such as holiday lets or rentals. The current owners have spared no expense in refurbishing the property, completely overhauling the annexe and replacing all the windows along the way.

The Front
The property is accessed from the roadside via a walled driveway, laid with block paving, providing parking for several cars. An attached garage, larger than average, is located to one side of the property and can be accessed via an electric up-and-over door. It is equipped with power, lighting and an internal door connecting to the annexe.

Entrance Hallway
Upon entering through the charming stained-glass front door, one is welcomed by a grand reception hall, setting the tone for the rest of the home. The hall features classic Minton tiled flooring, an elegant staircase with accompanying wood panelling and brass servant’s bells, a nostalgic nod to the history of large period homes. From the hallway, doors lead to the expansive living areas, cellar and a cloakroom/WC.

Living Room
To the left of the entrance hall, a wonderful bay-fronted living room awaits, centred around a majestic working fireplace with a white marble surround and tiled insert.

Music Room
From the living room, glazed double doors lead to an adjoining music room, a cosy inner reception room with an attractive side bay window, decorative timber beams and a delightful fireplace with ornate timber surround and accompanying wood panelling throughout.

Thoughtfully styled with traditional fittings, it boasts a freestanding roll-top bath, a Victorian-style towel rail and radiator combination, a walk-in shower, downlighters throughout and a useful built-in double cupboard in one corner. It also benefits from underfloor heating for the chillier months.

Adjacent to the landing, an airing cupboard houses the boiler and mega flow tank, while a walk-in storage room provides convenient additional space and could serve as a potential access point to the first floor of the adjoining annexe if needed.

The Annexe
A standout feature of this property is the high-quality self- contained annexe. The current owners have refurbished this extensive two-story section of the property, which surpasses many other ancillary dwellings in size and offers fantastic potential for various uses. Purchasers with dual occupancy requirements will appreciate this additional space, as will those interested in letting the annexe for extra income or utilising it for working from home.

Partly open plan to the kitchen is a spacious and light dining room, which flows nicely onto the rear garden through sliding patio doors.

The Garden
A large, mature garden awaits at the rear of the property, beautifully complementing the extensive accommodation and providing quality outdoor space that is not overlooked. A sizable patio at the rear of the house is perfect for al fresco dining and leads to an expansive lawn bordered by well-stocked beds housing many mature plants, including camellia, silver birch and apple trees.

A pleasant archway adorned with shaped conifers leads to the far end of the garden, where a delightful surprise awaits, a substantial period brick outbuilding tucked away in one corner. Originally a stable, this charming building offers a myriad of uses, such as workshop space, a summer house or a bar. Complete with power, lighting, a high ceiling, an engineered brick floor, storage cupboards and a workbench, it adds both practicality and character to the outdoor space. Additionally, there is another useful shed at the far end of the garden and gated side access.
