Property Snapshot

This stunning timber framed property is situated at the end of a private lane enjoying a rural location with lovely views. The property has a wealth of period features within and fantastic accommodation including three bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite, a family bathroom and a character landing that could provide a fourth bedroom. Downstairs, there is a reception hall, a sitting room, a dining room, a drawing room, a kitchen/breakfast room, a family bathroom and a useful utility room with access to the garden.

Outside, to the front of the property there is a sizeable driveway, a detached double garage with a studio above and mature wrap around cottage gardens.

Description
Over the years Pepwell has been subject to extensive and imaginative refurbishment and reconstruction programs, which have retained and enhanced the wonderful character of this home. The restorations have sympathetically tied in with the original features and include the impressive oak staircase and double-glazed leaded light windows set into the original timber openings and pitch pine panel doors.

The interior of the house strongly reflects the period with an abundance of exposed wall and ceiling character beams and an original sandstone inglenook fireplace in the drawing room and dining room.

The property is approached through a five-bar timber gate set between Yew and Hornbeam hedging. The gravel drive sweeps between beautifully maintained lawns with laurel hedging passing a circular brick well underneath a timber frame pitched tiled canopy.

To the side of the property there is a detached brick and rendered double garage with an up and over electrically operated door to the front. The garage also has a door to the adjoining home office and stairs rising to the studio.

A pathway between the well-manicured lawns and dwarf box hedging leads to the front oak framed porch and large oak front door.

As you enter the property you are greeted by a welcoming reception hallway with quarry tiled floor and a wealth of exposed timbers and character features. To the right of the hallway there is a lovely cosy sitting room/snug with a multi-fuel log burning stove, which is set into a brick fireplace with a wooden beam mantle and pleasant views over the front garden.

To the left of the hallway is the dining room and drawing room, which is segmented by impressive central room beams, with a wonderful original sandstone inglenook fireplace with log burning stove at the far end.

From the dining room you also have access to the downstairs family bathroom and stairs rising to the first floor. The ground-floor bathroom suite comprises a WC, a wash hand basin and a bath.

At the end of the hallway is the wonderful family kitchen breakfast room with views to the side and rear gardens. There is a three-oven AGA and a fully fitted kitchen comprising wall and base cabinets, a built-in dishwasher, a secondary electric double oven, and a hob. There is space for a farmhouse table in the centre of the room and the tiled floor flows through from the hallway.

Adjacent to the kitchen there is a useful utility room with wall and base kitchen cabinets with laminate worktops incorporating a stainless-steel sink with mixer tap. There is also space for a freezer, a washing machine, a further fridge freezer or larder fridge and a door leading out to the rear patio area and garden.

First floor
An oak staircase rises from the dining room to the first-floor central character landing which could easily be converted to create a fourth bedroom, but presently provides a wonderful office space with a half-vaulted ceiling and a wealth of exposed beams with wide Elm floorboards.

All three bedrooms have fantastic countryside views, with the master overlooking the front and having its own ensuite comprising a WC and wash hand basin. The other two bedrooms also have lovely views to the front and the rear gardens, and plenty of useful storage. Between the two bedrooms there is a family bathroom with a white traditional bathroom suite comprising a bath and a separate shower enclosure.

Gardens and grounds
To the right of the property a pathway continues around the house to a secluded flagstone patio area with steps and low brick retaining walls rising to the tiered lawns interspersed with Victoria plum trees, with Bramley apple trees to the rear. To the right of the garden is a wonderful waterfall pond and a summer house and at the rear of the formal lawned garden there is a full width garden trellis supporting honeysuckle, passionflower, clematis, and climbing roses that divides off a less formal area of the garden. This area, obscured from the main garden, has two timber garden sheds and a large timber framed workshop. The property backs onto open pastureland, orchards, and horticultural land.

Services
The property has mains water, mains electricity and private drainage. There is an LPG Tank, a Valiant LPG Combination Boiler and an LPG three-oven AGA. Council tax band - G.
