7 Bedroom Detached House For Sale


Set in a total plot of 5 acres, with two acre swimming lake, is this substantial family home with seven bedrooms, two bathrooms, well-appointed kitchen, spacious sitting room, dining room, downstairs cloakroom, study, utility room, block-built garage  and several metal outbuildings/barns. The property would benefit from some cosmetic updating, but offers a wealth of well-proportioned accommodation.

Upon entering is an entrance porch with cupboard for coats and shoes, opening into a notably spacious entrance hall with marble effect floor tiles, impressive open tread staircase with galleried landing, ornate plaster ceiling rose, chandelier and plaster niches.  Glazed double doors open into the triple aspect sitting room with sliding patio doors to the rear, French doors to the side and window to the front.  This bright and spacious room is newly carpeted and features wall lights and an arched stone fireplace as the focal point.  From the sitting room, glazed doors fold back to reveal the newly carpeted dining room with window to the rear overlooking the garden, paddock and surrounding lakes.  There is ample space to accommodate a table to seat ten to twelve people and a door leading back to the hall.  The dual aspect kitchen is a generous size with two doors to the hall, marble effect floor tiles, pale grey Shaker style units with 'soft close' doors and drawers, integrated Bosch eye level oven and grill, integrated fridge freezer, integrated dishwasher, Bosch ceramic hob, pull-out larder unit, quartz work-tops and inset sink along with a central island with curved corners providing further storage and workspace.  Adjacent to the kitchen is the utility room with additional grey shaker units, stainless steel sink, space and plumbing for both a washing machine and tumble dryer and a door leading out to the rear garden. Off the hall is a downstairs cloakroom with built-in storage, WC and wash basin.  The study, with window to the rear makes a great place to work from home or alternatively could be used a playroom.

Stairs rise up, past a feature window with views of garden and lake beyond, to the newly carpeted first floor landing with shelved linen cupboard. To the first floor are four double bedrooms and the family bathroom.  The principal bedroom benefits from a front aspect with built-in wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom with bath, large walk-in shower, WC and wash basin. Also with a front aspect, is a second spacious double bedroom.  Overlooking the garden to the rear, are two further well-proportioned double bedrooms.  The family bathroom is fully tiled and has a large shower enclosure and a step leading up to the corner bath, basin and WC.  From the landing a door opens to a further staircase, leading up to the second floor.

The second floor landing has a roof window and eaves storage. On this floor are two double bedrooms - one at either end, a single bedroom with roof window, loft hatch and eaves storage and a further room which could be used as a dressing room or converted into a third bathroom, if desired.  


To the front of the house are grounds of approx. 1.5 acres with a driveway leading, past a large metal barn with hardstanding and two further joined metal barns, to the fenced parking area with ample space for eight to ten cars.  To one side is a Dutch barn, with storage area and to the front is a block-built single garage.  On either side of the drive are areas of grass with mature trees.  Steps lead up to the front door and a raised walkway, with pedestrian gate to one side, runs around the perimeter of the house.  To the side and rear of the house, separated from the gardens and paddock by post and rail fencing, are gravelled areas for seating and entertaining.

To the rear is a large garden, circa. 1.5 acres, laid to grass with post and rail fencing towards the back, giving the option of an enclosed paddock.  Mature trees surround the plot on three sides.  At the side of the property a jetty gives access to a large swimming lake (circa. 2 acres in size).  The lake offers opportunity for swimming, fishing and boating alike and is a haven for local wildlife and birds.
