An impressive individual and well-presented family house with annexe potential

The house was designed by well-renowned local architect Richard Ashby. Holly House is a delightful and substantial family home offering almost 4, 000 sq. ft and reflecting the Arts and Craft period, with detailed brickwork and handmade arches to all elevations. Internally the house offers well-proportioned rooms with high ceilings. A large entrance hall flows into a spacious drawing room with a feature fireplace and French windows leading out to the rear paved sitting area. As well as a front aspect dining room that is light filled, there is also a study.

The living accommodation is very impressive and beautifully complements the spacious kitchen / breakfast room that leads onto the family room. Completed with natural oak floor and vaulted ceiling this provides further space for dining or entertaining. The family room also benefits from French windows leading into the garden. The adjoining utility and boot room complete the ground floor accommodation. There is also underfloor heating to the ground floor.

To the first floor accommodation is set around a galleried landing. There are five bedrooms, including a spacious principal bedroom with fitted storage and an en suite bathroom. Two well proportion bedrooms benefit from en suite bathrooms. There are two further bedrooms, a separate bathroom with a freestanding bath which compliments the additional bedrooms. A versatile movie room with a connecting door and staircase to the ground floor completes the first floor accommodation.
