Large and inviting home with views over the vale
THIS substantial five double bedroom detached residence on a generous plot of approximately an acre enjoys far-reaching views over Pednor Vale and offers potential to extend further, subject to the relevant consents.
The property is ideally positioned for access to highly regarded local schooling, approximately three quarters of a mile from the station and pedestrianised high street as well as ideally placed for access to countryside walks.
The current owners, who have lived at the property for the past 14 years, believe a much older house was originally on the site, which has been added to over the years to form the house you see today.
Previous residents are thought to have been associated with the boot-making industry in the Victorian/ Edwardian era due to a number of historical items such as lasts, shapers, vice, pincers, small metal wheels and large door hinges being found on the site.These items now form a collection at the property; some pieces of particular interest have in the past been donated to the local museum.
The well presented accommodation comprises: entrance porch opening to a super reception hall with stunning wide staircase, striking kitchen opening to a fantastic breakfast room both with quarry tiled flooring enjoying views over the garden, utility room, generous L-shaped sitting/dining room with feature fireplace as well as two sets of doors to the garden and bay window to the front, 14ft family room with bay window and cloakroom/shower room with glass brick shower cubicle.
The first floor offers a spacious landing providing access to the generous loft space offering the potential for conversion, subject to the relevant consents.
There is a remodelled family bathroom with light tube, five double bedrooms with bedroom two enjoying breathtaking views to the rear from its balcony and the master bedroom with Juliet balcony and a stylish en-suite shower room.
Externally, the property offers a double garage with remote controlled door as well as a substantial illuminated driveway providing parking for several vehicles to the front.
To the rear is a substantial and mature garden, thoughtfully landscaped with a large lit flagstone patio which is ideal for entertaining. There are also two generous lawned areas with pathway leading on to the vegetable garden complete with feature garden pond and fruit cage.
Out of sight behind all this can be found a secret wild grassland/flower garden with mown pathway leading to a delightful wooded coppice providing an ample supply of firewood.
GENEROUS PROPORTIONS: The property sits on a large mature plot and features a striking kitchen opening on to a breakfast room with views over the garden.
