A substantial and handsome late Victorian country house standing in beautiful park like gardens and grounds. About 5.5 acres.
Cauldwell is thought to date from the late 1800's, with later additions and is a substantial and beautifully presented country house. From the carriage driveway wide part glazed doors lead through into the welcoming reception hall which provides an instant sense of light and space. Both the drawing room and sitting room have attractive open fireplaces. A door from the drawing room leads through into the beautiful double glazed timber conservatory which has been lovingly rebuilt to replicate the original. The family room has a wood burning stove and can be approached from both the sitting room and kitchen/dining room. The study has a built-in desk and extensive built-in storage and book cases.
The 34' kitchen/dining room is the heart of the house and is fitted with an extensive range of bespoke cream fronted units, with polished granite work surfaces and includes a double oven, hob, dishwasher and a two oven LPG fired Aga. To one side of the dining area is a further wood burning stove. A boot room, utility room with a built-in wine fridge, cloakroom and rear porch complete the ground floor accommodation which is ideally arranged for modern day living.
On the first floor is a particularly spacious double aspect principal bedroom, a bathroom, three further double bedrooms and a shower room. Both the bathroom and shower room are well-appointed and fitted with white suites. Arranged over the second floor are two further bedrooms.

Lying immediately to the rear of the house is a charming sheltered brick paved courtyard.

Situated a short distance from these buildings is a substantial brick and tile outbuilding, which is currently used as a games room.
