A superb 5 bedroom family home, forming the major part of a former country house, with versatile accommodation, set in delightful gardens and grounds of just under 3 acres, including a Champagne vineyard, in a rural yet convenient location.
Believed to date from the early 1900s, this superb family home forms the major portion of a former country house, having many character features including; turned oak staircase, picture rails, plantation shutters to many windows, high ceilings, original radiators and oak flooring. The well-arranged living accommodation has a natural flow, from the impressive entrance hall with log burning stove to the delightful drawing room with welcoming open fire and the additional sitting room and study. At the heart of the home is the kitchen/dining room with bespoke oak fitted kitchen boasting Silestone worktops, central island with solid wood worktop, electric Rangemaster oven, underfloor heating beneath Travertine tiled flooring and French doors opening out to the garden. On the first floor, the dual aspect master bedroom enjoys stunning views and is complimented by a luxurious en-suite bathroom. There are four further bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms, and a family bathroom. The layout of rooms and second staircase provide the opportunity to create a separate annex if desired. The former garaging was converted into a studio/home office space.
This property has 2.92 acres of land.
The property is approached via a sweeping drive to electric wooden gates, where the gravel drive provides ample parking. The garden is divided into three areas, a formal lawn to the south with timber summer house, and another extending from the east with beautiful walled garden, seating area and a garden room.
