An attractive detached house of red brick elevations with blue headers all under a clay tiled roof with garaging and set in delightful gardens and grounds with further land extending in all to about 13.4 acres.
Parts of the house are thought to date back to the 18th century with recent additions and improvements carried out by the current owners. The property now offers some 1,878sq ft of accommodation arranged over two floors with some lovely period features including exposed timbers and inglenook fireplace, along with modern touches to provide a very comfortable four bedroom family home with double glazing throughout.
The floor plans give an excellent overview of the full extent and layout of the accommodation but briefly, on the ground floor, from the front porch, the entrance door opens into a generous size reception/dining room with beamed ceiling and Inglenook fireplace housing a log burning stove. To one end, steps lead down to a triple aspect sitting room with large brick fireplace and second log burning stove. To the opposite end a door leads through to the conservatory which has a tiled floor and set of French doors leading out to the terrace and rear gardens.
Adjoining the dining room is the kitchen/breakfast room which has a tiled floor and is fitted with a range of units with worksurface incorporating a ceramic sink, electric cooking facilities, space and plumbing for appliances. There is a fitted bench seat to one corner and a door that opens onto the staircase leading up to the first floor.
An inner hallway leading out of the kitchen gives access to the cloakroom and utility room and has a stable door out to rear patio and gardens and an excellent built in larder cupboard off.
The utility/boot room is a good size and has a range of fitted units with worksurface and sink and a stable door giving access out to the drive.
On the first floor, the triple aspect master bedroom gives lovely views over the land and has a bank of built in wardrobes with oak doors and a generous en suite shower room with ‘walk in’ shower and contemporary suite and also benefits from electric underfloor heating below a tiled floor.
There are three further bedrooms on the first floor, all having built in storage, and complemented by a family bathroom.
Averys is approached through electronic timber gates with ample parking to the side of the house leading to a double cart lodge style garage that has a useful first floor storage area above accessed via a set of external steps.
The house sits within delightful gardens and grounds of just over 2 acres which are a lovely feature of the property. At the front a second pedestrian entrance gate leads onto a brick path through a small area of garden up to the front entrance door with mature trees providing screening and privacy.
To the rear of the house is an area of lawned garden with some attractive mature trees and shrubs for interest and terrace providing a pleasant outdoor sitting and entertaining space. At the top of the garden there are wonderful views over the land and surrounding countryside. There are also a number of outbuildings including a brick built shed and timber summerhouse.
Beyond the gardens to the east is the gently undulating pasture land which extends to about 11.3 acres with some majestic oaks along the boundaries and incorporates a large rectangular stock fenced field parcel, ideally suited to grazing with a trackway bordering Wood Lane.
