This charming, extended, detached residence, with parts dating back to 1692, was built as part of the Hesketh Estate and has been a wonderful family home to the current owners for almost twenty-five years. Located close to village amenities, the accommodation includes four reception rooms, spacious breakfast kitchen plus separate utility room, four bedrooms, the master having an en suite facility, and a family bathroom. The property sits within two acres of well stocked gardens and adjoining paddock and a side driveway provides parking for four cars and leads to a detached double garage.
Sheltered by a canopy porch, the timber front door opens to the spacious hallway with front and side windows, exposed beams and stanchions highlighted by two pendant lights, and a radiator. A spindle staircase rises and turns to the galleried landing and there is a storage cupboard beneath.
White panelled doors open to each of the rooms throughout including the spacious dual aspect lounge with windows to front and side and French windows to the garden. To one end of the room is an Adams style mahogany inlaid fire surround with marble inset and hearth and housing an open fire. The room is wired for wall lights, has two radiators and is large enough for a baby grand piano to call home.
The snug has a window to the front, is wired for wall lighting and has a beamed ceiling. A charming brick Claygate open fireplace supplements the warmth from the radiator and this comfortable room has double doors to the dining room and also a door to the kitchen.
The good-sized dining room has wall lighting points, a side window and French windows to the garden. Again, exposed ceiling beams are on display and there is a radiator to warm the room.
The very spacious breakfast kitchen, with a front and two side facing windows, has been fitted with a good range of ivory-shaded Shaker-style wall and base units with brushed steel handles and incorporating glazed display cabinets, drawers and an island breakfast bar. The surrounding granite work-tops are inset with twin bowl stainless steel sink units having a mixer tap and an etched drainer alongside, and set beneath the side window. Also inset is the Neff four-ring induction hob with canopy extractor fan over and a complementary eye-level double oven and grill close by.
Integrated appliances include a larder fridge and freezer, placed to either side of the ovens, and an automatic dishwasher. There is more than ample space for a table and chairs to the breakfast area and two radiators provide warmth. Double doors give way to the dining room, and the Karndean flooring continues beneath a glazed door to the rear hall and study. A further glazed door opens to the utility/boot room with a timber door to the garden, plumbing for a washing machine, space for a tumble dryer and housing for the Glow-worm gas central heating boiler.
The rear hall provides larder storage and space for coat hanging whilst a door off opens to the cloakroom with opaque side window, pendant light and a two-piece Heritage suite of low flush w.c. and a wall mounted wash hand basin.
The dual aspect study overlooks the garden and has a pendant light, radiator and ample space for office-style furniture.
The split-level landing, with exposed beams to the part-vaulted ceiling, has wall lighting, a radiator and a window to the front. A walk-in linen cupboard houses the lagged hot water cylinder tank and has shelves above and space for ironing tackle.
The generously sized master bedroom has windows overlooking the front and side and wall lighting for evening ambience. A range of mahogany fitted wardrobes line one wall with a central gap for the door to the en suite. The spacious en suite is tiled to dado and splash areas in coloured tiling to match the four-piece Heritage suite of corner timber panelled bath with telephone style mixer tap and hand shower, pedestal wash basin, low flush w.c. and a corner shower cubicle with etched glass. Additional conveniences include a shaver point, recessed down-lighting, extractor fan and a radiator.
The further three double bedrooms each have windows which overlook the gardens, ample space for bedroom storage furniture, wall lighting and are warmed by a radiator.
The family bathroom also has exposed beams to the ceiling, windows to front and side and white tiled walls to dado height with a Delft-style border. The three-piece white Heritage suite comprises a timber panelled bath, pedestal wash hand basin and a low flush w.c. There is spot lighting and over-mirror lighting and the radiator has a combined brass heated rail to warm the towels.
The property is set beyond a privet-lined frontage and has a block paved driveway providing parking for three/four cars and leading to a detached double garage with electronically controlled up-and over door, side door and window, power and light. To the side of the drive is a lawn area with a picket gate to the Lady’s Mantle edged pathway cutting through to the front door and the lawn wraps-around and expands to both the side and rear. A stone flagged path and raised flower and shrub borders follow the lawn to the totally secluded south-west facing gardens bordered by mature shrubs and trees and featuring a centralised, deep herbaceous border with trellis. To the rear is a flagged sun terrace beside the kitchen and dining room doors, perfect for al fresco dining and barbecues. Wrought iron gates from here open to a further expansive lawn garden and orchard with large timber storage shed and footings for kennels, and giving way to the stock fenced and conifer lined one-acre paddock.
