A splendid four-bedroom detached house with an annexe and equestrian facilities


Nightingales is a splendid detached property that has had only two owners in the 74 years since it was built. The house offers spacious, flexible accommodation arranged over two floors, with the annexe adding additional practical living space. On the ground floor, the house has 2 flexible reception rooms, and a light and airy conservatory with a south facing aspect and French doors opening onto patio and gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room has oak units, providing plenty of storage space, and integrated appliances, including a double oven and a gas hob. There are also two utility rooms, one of which is accessed externally and could be used as a store or laundry. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, three of which are doubles. The generous principal bedroom has an en suite shower room, while there is also a family bathroom. The ground floor annexe provides separate self-contained accommodation, and has a fully equipped kitchen, with integrated appliances, including a double oven and a gas hob, large sitting room, a bathroom and one double bedroom. This space would lend itself very well to additional guest accommodation or multi-generational living.

This property has 7.82 acres of land.


The house is set in far-reaching grounds hidden from view of the A3 behind an earth banking. A long private driveway leads to the house, a double carport, parking for numerous vehicles, grassy paddocks, woodland and gardens. Just beyond the house are the four separate barns, which have been used for the past 25 years as vehicle repairs and joinery workshops. There is a potential for development, subject to the necessary consents. Additionally, there is a stable block consisting of three loose boxes and a secure feed/tack room, and a hard tennis court, enclosed by chain link fencing.
