Conveniently positioned, within close proximity to the village centre, ‘Penlee House’ is an imposing five bedroom detached villa, originally dating back to the 1920’s. Internally, the property has been comprehensively redesigned, reworked and extended in recent years. It now offers versatile family accommodation with two public rooms and five bedrooms, formed over two substantial levels, on a good-sized plot, enjoying beautiful open views to the rear. This property is as unique as it is beautiful! The traditional building has been well maintained both internally and externally, to create fantastic and flexible accommodation, which only a viewing will qualify. There are plenty of opportunities to further upgrade and improve this home.
Externally, you will notice the house has been designed to make a striking visual statement. There is an integral single garage (with power and light), which offers the very real possibility of being converted into further living accommodation (subject to obtaining the necessary consents). There is also a sweeping gravel driveway providing off road parking for a number of vehicles. The fully enclosed and private rear garden will certainly appeal to the family buyer with a large “on-the-level” lawn area, mature shrubs and offers stunning views over the open countryside. The perfect spot for a lazy summer’s day!
The subjects are entered via a private vestibule, which opens into a large welcoming reception hallway, with staircase off to the upper landing and access to the principal ground floor apartments. The two port-hole windows to the front and the lighting are a particular feature of this area. Immediately impressive lounge, which has a range of furniture configurations and benefits from French doors opening onto the rear garden and a bay window overlooking the countryside to the side aspect. This room is flooded with natural light and further benefits from feature lighting.
The separate dining room has ample space for a table and chairs for more formal dining with friends and family and offers views over the rear garden. This room offers the very real possibility of removing the dividing wall between the kitchen to create an open-plan kitchen/dining zone. The ‘hub’of the home is the recently installed (Autumn 2014) ‘Howdens’ kitchen/diner, which has been beautifully fitted to include a contemporary range of floor and wall mounted units with a striking central worktop, providing a fashionable and efficient workspace, which extends into a functional breakfast bar. It further benefits from an integrated oven, hob, dishwasher and microwave - making this the ideal kitchen for an aspiring chef! There is room within this zone for a small dining table and/or sofa for more informal gatherings or for simply grabbing a coffee or reading the Sunday papers ! A spacious ‘L’ shaped utility room is located off the kitchen and has space for an upright fridge/freezer and retains the original wall-tiling. A handy cloakroom/wc is located off this area.
The original staircase leads to first floor level, revealing five substantial bedrooms and a family bathroom. The broad landing is flooded with natural light and could easily be used as a relaxation zone or as a library/study area. Access to the loft space can be gained from the landing. This area is prime for development into additional living space if desired (STPP). The master bedroom is the last word in luxury with a picture window offering tremendous views over the countryside. It further benefits from a range of fitted wardrobes and a raised platform for the bed.
One of the rooms has a vanity unit and all have space for additional freestanding furniture if required. The partly-tiled, four piece bathroom, with a corner bath and a separate shower cubicle, creates the perfect ambience in which to unwind.
The specification includes gas central heating, partial double glazing, attractive stained glass windows and a video entry system for additional peace of mind and comfort. Externally, there is an outbuilding, which has previously housed the boiler and separate cellar access.
