Part Exchange available : A unique opportunity has presented itself to offer onto the market this beautifully positioned, period, detached villa set within 3.75 acres of land. There is an abundance of history connected with this property dating back to the early 1900’s when the Valentines lived in this very property. They were behind the firm who began as early exponents of photography. They also began as pioneers in the postcard industry and later developed the production of greetings cards, novelties, calendars and illustrated children’s books.
The property is a substantial detached villa sitting down a quiet private lane with a large plot which also benefits from a South facing aspect, which includes outbuildings. The property offers very versatile accommodation with an abundance of period features including decorative ceiling roses, coving, picture rails and the old servant bell system, although not in working order still remains in place within the kitchen. The entrance hall gives access to downstairs accommodation with attractive low climbing staircase to the first floor. The formal lounge is located at the front of the property and has a walk-in bay window, which has been double glazed, with magnificent views over the grounds and woodland. There is a feature fireplace, high ceilings and attractive period features including two glass fronted built in display units. The family room is located to the front also with replacement windows thoughout excluding one window, open fire with fireplace and surround. Next downstairs is one of the large double bedrooms with side aspect window, feature fireplace and vanity unit with sink. The large dining room features a fireplace with a wood burner and double French doors opening onto the courtyard garden, which is sheltered, secluded and private, ideal for a hot tub.
The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of units with roll top work surfaces incorporating sink unit and drainer. Built-in oven with microwave above, separate halogen hob with grill above. Further free standing range style cooker, space for table and chairs and upright fridge/freezer. From here you can access an inner hallway leading to a modern three-piece shower room. The single shower is wet walled and has a built in seat. Next-door is the laundry room with floor-mounted boiler, space and plumbing for washing machine and side aspect window. Access to the side of the property can be found here from the inner hallway.
Upon reaching the first floor landing you have a long corridor on two levels with access to all rooms with a Velux window for added light, large raised landing with ample storage space and built in shelving. There are two front facing double bedrooms. The main bedroom is dual aspect with a large bay window overlooking the front of the property and another window with window seat overlooking the courtyard. There is also the feature of a hidden vanity unit built in to appear as though it is part of the wardrobes. The second double also has a vanity unit and fitted wardrobes. There is a single bedroom with built in wardrobe and a further room that can be used as a bedroom or study which has access to the loft space via a wooden staircase.
A further walk in room with storage cupboards would make an ideal conversion to a small office with views to the front of the property and is also accessed from the landing.
Outside you have various outbuildings for storage of wood, garden tools and storage. The driveway leads down to the front of the property with turning circle and ample parking. Steps then lead up to the front door. A custom built summerhouse is located by the driveway with power and light and enjoys some breathtaking views over the surrounding countryside and grounds. The garden is mainly located to the front and expands to over 3.5 acres surrounded by woodland for the whole family to enjoy.
