Originally built in 1904 and heavily extended in the Eighties, this fabulous property still has plenty of character to offer alongside those incredible views. After parking on the 3 car external Driveway or in the gated Driveway we enter the property via the Courtyard Terrace, which has amazing countryside views, into the Kitchen. There is space to deposit coats and shoes and also a Pantry with marble cold meat slab and bread drawer as we enter the room, which has an excellent range of modern white wall and base units with contrasting wooden worktops and upstands and a Belfast sink directly looking out onto the open countryside views with a tap providing boiling water, cold filtered and sparkling water. The large range cooker runs off external LPG gas tanks and the integrated appliances include dishwasher, under counter fridge, American fridge freezer, steam oven and a combination microwave oven. The freestanding matching central island with professional butchers slab on the upper level provides additional storage and a breakfast bar. An opening leads through to an Inner Hallway which has a useful and quite large under stairs storage cupboard plus a staircase to Bedrooms 2 & 3 and also leads us directly into the Dining Room. The fully glazed double doors provide plenty of light along with those fabulous views and there is also a 1950's Dutch log burner focal point. A further opening leads onto the Lounge, the original part of the house and with all the character you would expect including a log burner in a feature Inglenook fireplace and engineered oak flooring. The adjacent Sun Room is almost an extension of the Lounge, with swathes of light pouring through the windows, a perfect place to relax with a book. At the end of the Sun Room is the Utility Room, with plumbing for a washing machine, space for a tumble dryer and the oil fired central heating boiler. A second door leads to the Study, with plenty of storage in fitted cupboards this could easily be a Play Room, Gym, Home Office or even a 4th single Bedroom with its Ensuite Shower Room including hand basin and WC.
There are 2 staircases to the first floor, providing excellent privacy for all. In the Lounge the staircase leads to the principal bedroom, a large double bedroom with a Dressing Room, including a rooftop Balcony overlooking the countryside, and a large Ensuite Bathroom with free standing bath, shower enclosure, hand basin and WC. From the Inner Hall the second staircase splits to provide individual access to the remaining 2 Bedrooms, both with Ensuite Shower Rooms and enjoying the fantastic views. Bedroom 2 is a large double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and an Ensuite Shower Room including hand basin and WC. Bedroom 3 has been operating as a Home Office, with a platform for the desk to make the most of the views and also with an Ensuite Shower Room. Outside there is a generous South facing Garden with a large Terrace, lawn with 10 raised beds for fruit, vegetables and flowers, a greenhouse with power, disguising the oil tank beyond, and a 32 amp supply suitable for a hot tub. Gates to either side lead to the Driveway parking on Barwell Lane and also to the Courtyard Terrace.

Currently, there are no formal restrictions to viewings, however agents, homeowners and viewers are advised to observe good hygiene practices at all times, including regular hand washing, sanitising & cleaning. Where physical viewings go ahead, the following applies: No viewing should take place if any person living in a property for sale or rent, is showing symptoms of Coronavirus or self-isolating or if you have been asked to self-isolate due to being in close contact with someone who has Coronavirus. There are no limits on the numbers of people who can attend a viewing, but it is advisable to continue to keep numbers to a minimum. Minimise contact with door handles, cupboard doors and other surfaces. The use of hand sanitiser before entering and when leaving a property is recommended. If available, we strongly encourage clients to view properties virtually in the first instance and then only request physical viewings for properties that you have a strong interest in. You may be asked to provide further information about your position in the market and your ability to purchase or rent the property before a physical viewing can be confirmed. Please do be prepared for this. This means that if you need to sell your house to move, we may ask you if you have your house on the market for sale or if it is ready to be advertised for sale, within a few days of your viewing. And where a mortgage is required, arrangements have been made to obtain a Decision in Principle from a Mortgage Lender. We can help with selling your home or finding the right mortgage for you, or you can make your own arrangements. If on the day of your viewing you are suffering any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19 such as a high temperature (above 38 degrees), a persistent cough or loss of the sense of smell, please do not attend the viewing. We will be happy to rearrange once you are symptom free.
