A unique 16th Century property, which has been tastefully extended blending the original Grade II listed house with a 20th Century extension to create a detached family home that oozes character. Situated on the sought after Pains Hill the South-East aspect provides stunning far-reaching views.
Entering in to the entrance hall the ground floor comprises a utility room, cloakroom, sitting room, family room, dining room, breakfast room and kitchen. There is recently laid Amtico flooring to the majority of the ground floor with the sitting room, family room and dining room benefiting from carpeted floors and original vertical and ceiling beams. The character continues with an inglenook fireplace and bread oven to the sitting room and a 'secret' rear staircase up to the bedrooms. The traditional fitted kitchen benefits from an integrated hob/oven/fridge freezer/dishwasher finished with granite worktops and offering views over the garden and beyond. The downstairs accommodation can be used flexibly but offers a nice feeling of being open plan as well as being separated by the vertical beams. The utility offers fitted storage with space for washing machine and tumble dryer, hanging space and handy electronic stop cock. There is also access to the garden and patio from the breakfast room and dining room.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms, with an en-suite to the master and a family bathroom. The spacious master bedroom is dual aspect offering far reaching views and an en-suite bathroom with shower/hand basin and WC. There are characterful beams and features to bedroom one with access to loft space currently used as a home office above and the character continues in bedrooms 3 and 4 with vaulted ceilings and eaves storage, which form part of the original house. There is Amtico flooring to family bathroom with bath/hand basin/towel rail/WC and bespoke built in storage housing the hot water tank plus access to the second attic which is fully boarded and insulated.
Outside there is a recently reconfigured driveway with parking for a number of cars, a mature garden to the front with access to the rear garden to both sides of the house. To the rear there is a large South facing patio perfect for entertaining and a mature rear garden laid mostly to lawn offering far reaching views.
