En­joy the view on the ap­proach to Pen­field, a de­tached home set in an idyl­lic wood­land spot of more than 11 acres.

King Ge­orge II, grand­fa­ther of mad king Ge­orge III was the reign­ing monarch when work first started on this house, although there have been a num­ber of later ad­di­tions.

Buy­ers will love pe­riod fea­tures in­clud­ing an in­glenook fire­place, painted brick­work and brick fireplaces in some of the bed­rooms.

Con­tem­po­rary fea­tures in­clude a be­spoke solid wood hand painted kitchen/break­fast room, fit­ted with Miele ap­pli­ances and an Al­pha oil-fired range which pro­vides the heat­ing and hot wa­ter.

On the ground floor are the draw­ing room, sit­ting room, din­ing room, the kitchen/ break­fast room, util­ity and down­stairs cloak­room.

On the first floor, reached by the pri­mary oak stair­case, is a prin­ci­pal bed­room suite with en suite bath/shower room. The two re­main­ing bed­rooms are reached via a se­condary stair­case which also leads to the fam­ily bath­room.

Both of these bed­rooms in­clude pe­riod fea­tures such as painted wood pan­elling, brick fire­place, cup­boards and have beau­ti­ful views over the sur­round­ing land and gar­dens. The main gar­den is south west fac­ing and the pur­ple beech hedg­ing en­clos­ing the gar­den is spec­tac­u­lar.

The bor­ders are ma­ture and planted with bulbs and herba­ceous plants which pro­vide a riot of colour through­out the spring and sum­mer. The main gar­den is fenced off from the re­main­der of the plot, which in­cludes graz­ing land and wood­land.

There is a grav­elled drive­way, a dou­ble open bay garage and a tim­ber out­build­ing.
