A truly charming detached family home with glorious gardens.
Sitting deep within the plot, Spire Hollen is an impressive five bedroom detached period country home built in 1925. The spacious entrance hall with its splendid turning staircase, leads to an impressive drawing room with high ceilings and two arched French windows opening to the terrace and rear grounds. Reception space is in abundance and offers immense flexibility with the dining room being a further notable feature. Designed with collegiate wooden panelling, an open fireplace and two expansive panelled sash windows, the room lends itself perfectly to entertaining friends and family. The reception space continues with the sizable family room opening to the rear terrace and an inviting bar area, adjoining the drawing room. The kitchen/breakfast room is stylishly designed with granite work surfaces, an array of floor and wall units and delightful views across the gardens. The first floor accommodates five double bedrooms with bedroom five currently assigned as a study. The master bedroom suite comprises generous bedroom with fitted wardrobes, a dressing room and en-suite bathroom. Natural light illuminates all rooms, through the expansive panelled sash windows. Bedroom four leads to a large storage area providing exceptional additional space.
The property is well set back from the road and approached via a carriage gravel drive which leads up to the front of the house and garage, where there is ample parking for cars. Extending to just under 2 acres, the gardens and grounds are a delightful haven for peace and relaxation. Extensive lawns are interspersed with mature trees and shrubs, most notably a fabulous bank of rhododendrons to the front of the house and a magnificent wisteria stretching the length of the back of the house, alongside a mature magnolia tree. There is also a sunken garden, which is a charming feature as well as a separate orchard with a variety of fruit trees.
