Dating back to Circa 1830, Appley Moor House sits at the top of Robin Hood Lane and commands superb and far reaching pastoral views yet a stone’s throw from commuter transport links. The accommodation briefly comprises three generously sized reception rooms, a bespoke Shaker style breakfast kitchen plus utility room, four bedrooms and little and large loft rooms – the latter being spacious enough to provide two home-office spaces if required.
An open porch with quarry tiled floor shelters the front door which gives way to the vestibule with ceiling light and radiator. A door off leads into the cloakroom with a white two-piece suite and a cupboard housing the energy meters and a ceiling beam supports the light fitment. The property dates back to 1830 and so is filled with characterful features and exposed beams throughout.
The tiled flooring from these areas continues through the hallway and into the breakfast kitchen. From the hall, a staircase rises and turns to the first floor having an old latch door cupboard beneath it whilst timber panelled doors open to the sitting room and the breakfast kitchen.
The very spacious sitting room has windows to the side and rear and a window to the garden room. The exposed beams add an appealing feature as does the brick edged ingle fireplace surrounding a multi fuel burning stove which rests on a stone flagged hearth. Wall lighting adds evening ambience and a television point sits to the side of the fireplace.
French windows give way to the garden room with two exposed stone walls, five windows to the garden and French windows to the sun terrace. There are two sets of ceiling strip-spotlights, two radiators and the practical tiled flooring in here continues into the adjacent utility room.
The utility room has a door to the front garden with windows to either side and a range of wood effect base cabinets and worktops with an inset stainless-steel sink unit and shelves above. Under-counter space and plumbing is on hand for white goods and there is space for a tall fridge freezer.
A wrought iron staircase gives way to the small loft area with Velux window, a strip of spotlights and exposed floorboards. This room is ideal for additional storage or even a hobby room.
The breakfast kitchen has a window and stable style door to the front garden and is lit by ceiling lights. The area is fitted with a bespoke range of ivory coloured, Shaker style cabinets with oak button handles and a matching oak worktop with etched drainer and an inset one and a half bowl stainless steel sink unit with French style swan neck mixer tap. A coordinating painted mantle sits above the niche housing the Aga and De Dietrich domino induction hob with Neff oven and grill below and dark grey melange granite worktops give a useful finish to this area. Integrated appliances include a Miele automatic dishwasher and fridge and there is ample space for a table and chairs
A door off leads into the angled dining room with woodblock flooring, a window and French windows to the rear and having a brick edged ingle housing a Swedish stove for burning logs and resting on a tiled hearth.
Taking the stairs to the first floor, with a picture window at the half-landing having superb rural views to the north, there are two pendant lights and timber panelled doors to each of the rooms.
The master bedroom has a long window to the front, a window to the rear and central pendant light highlighting the painted, exposed stone wall. There is room for a king-sized bed, wardrobes and storage furniture and a built-in cupboard houses the Baxi combination boiler with linen shelves alongside.
The bathroom has painted wall panelling to dado height, a window to the front and a ceiling light. The white suite the comprises a pedestal wash basin and panelled bath with protective screen and Mira Sport shower over. The vinyl floor coordinates and a radiator warms the towels. Adjacent is a separate toilet with window to front, ceiling light and wood flooring.
Bedroom two – a double room - has a rear window, pendant light and radiator. There are display shelves in a wall niche, wood flooring and this room is currently used as an office/library.
Bedroom three is also a double room with rear window, pendant light and radiator plus two sets of fitted wardrobes having matching cabinets above.
Bedroom four is a single room with windows to front and side, pendant light and a radiator.
From the landing, a latch door opens to a wooden staircase rising and turning to the large loft room which runs the full width of the original footprint and would easily adapt to home offices or a large games room. With exposed brick to one wall, there is a solid floor, three Velux windows, three pendant lights and eaves storage cupboards plus a brick arch to the centre.
The property is approached via a driveway with parking for four/five cars and a stone flagged pathway with mature shrub planting to either side leads to the front door. The flagged path continues to the front of the property where, mixed with cobble stones, creates a seating area having Lady’s Mantle borders dotted with other cottage garden planting.
To the rear, a further stone flagged sun terrace features an ancient stone weight and a rockery to one side surrounding an ornamental pond. Steps down lead to the lawn garden which is surrounded by high shrubs and trees beyond the herbaceous and island flower and shrub borders. A timber arbour seating frame sits alongside the picket gate to the roadside and further stone steps lead down to the extended garden.
Here, a rustic timber summer house with front balcony gives a rural retreat and has power, light and even a tiny log burning stove for wintertime. There are also two further storage sheds and, once again, the area is enclosed by mature shrubbery.
