Woodlands, Ford is now available with up to 100% Part Exchange option (full details on request).
We are delighted to bring to market Woodlands, a grade C listed property, formerly the manse of the United Presbyterian Church in Ford. Dating from 1836, it is a pretty, symmetrical, stone built, Georgian house with nicely proportioned rooms offering excellent family accommodation.
The property has recently been upgraded with a new kitchen, complete rewiring and re plumbing, including a new boiler. The house retains the classical features typical of the period with sash and case windows, all with working shutters, and simple, elegant cornicing.
The property benefits from Mains electricity, gas, water and private drainage to a septic tank.
Woodlands is approached through a stone pillared gateway and iron gates and up a gravel drive. There is a parking area to the side of the house from where gates open onto a paved area to the rear of the house. A path leads across the front of the house to the main entrance.
The front door opens into a spacious, traditionally tiled reception hall. To the right lies the sitting room. This is a bright dual aspect room, created from two smaller reception rooms to make a splendid family living room. It has a wood burning stove beneath a timber mantel and French doors open onto the patio and into the garden.
Across the hall the dining room has been knocked through to the kitchen to create a large family kitchen. The dining end of the room has a wood burning stove and plenty of space for a large dining table. The timber floor here contrasts nicely with the slate floor at the working end of the room. A peninsula separates the dining area from the kitchen which is fitted with painted timber units under an oiled hardwood worktop. There is a double Belfast sink with a Quooker hot water tap. Full height wall cupboards incorporate an integrated oven and fridge freezer. A Rangemaster Classic 110 dual fuel range is set in the recess of the original range. A door leads from the kitchen to the back door and the utility room and larder. There is also a cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin. A second door leads back into the reception hall past an under stair cupboard.
Stairs with wrought iron banisters and timber balustrade rise up to the first floor. At the mid landing there is the family bathroom. This is newly fitted with free standing bath, WC, large shower enclosure and wash hand basin, and has electric under floor heating.
On the first floor the master bedroom is a bright room overlooking the garden and woodland. It has a fireplace under a marble mantel and a wall press. Its en suite shower room has shower, WC, wash hand basin and electric under floor heating.
The three further bedrooms are all well sized rooms and two have walk in cupboards, one housing the Worcester boiler and Tornedo pressurised hot water cylinder and both providing excellent storage.
To the back of the house there is a paved yard area behind gates that secure the garden from the parking area and drive. The garage is currently used as a log store but would take a small car or be a useful bike store. A lean-to shelter provides further log storage and links the garage to a more substantial outbuilding. This is a versatile space which is currently used as a workshop with a gym on the first floor but could make an excellent home office.
A gate leads into the walled garden. A patio runs along the east side of the house, by the French doors from the drawing room, forming a sunny outside seating and dining area. A kitchen garden lies beyond the wall running along the eastern edge of the lawn, conveniently close to the garden shed. The northern policies are occupied by a small wood which provides excellent shelter and a manageable supply of firewood. The embankment below the house has a path which runs down between terraces of shrubs to a gateway leading to the pavement providing a quick route to the village.
EXTRAS (Included in the sale): Standard fixtures and fittings are included in the sale. Certain items of furniture and garden equipment may be available by separate negotiation.
