Woodpeckers is a spacious and well-presented home. Created from a brick and flint stable building and once part of the adjoining Bunce Court. The current owner bought the partially converted building nearly 40 years ago and completed the conversion that now offers over 2,300 sq ft of versatile family accommodation.
Through the stable door entrance, the reception hall welcomes visitors with exposed beams, a flagstone floor and a feature cast iron fireplace with an incorporated gas fire. The substantial drawing room offers triple aspect views together with an impressive brick fireplace, wood-burning stove and beams; double French doors open out to the garden. Entered from the drawing room, through double doors, the dining room is light-filled and generous in size.
Off the hallway, the front-facing sitting room has exposed beams, a corner cast iron fireplace and garden access. The beamed, country-style kitchen has a flagstone floor, a range of wooden base and wall cabinets and French doors to the garden and seating area. There is space for appliances and an integrated range oven and ample room for a family breakfast table. Adjacent is a useful laundry room.
Opening to the garden through French doors, the spacious principal bedroom has a modern en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower and bath; the integral dressing room offers purpose-built storage space. Adjacent is a good sized, light-filled family room with a wood-burning stove, wooden flooring and garden access via double French doors. Adjoining the family room is a study.
The two additional bedrooms are both light-filled, one with an en suite shower room and access to the garden via French doors and the other enjoying Jack and Jill access to the family shower room.
This property has 0.63 acres of land.
Approached over a gravelled driveway with parking for several cars, Woodpeckers is set within a private, enclosed garden bordered by hedging, flint walls and mature trees.
The gardens are a delightful setting for the house and offer high levels of privacy and seclusion. Shrub beds and sensitive planting provide year round interest and colour, and there are several seating areas for alfresco dining and from which to enjoy the garden views.
There is a substantial garage with a first-floor level, a log store, two sheds, an outside w/c and dog shower.
