A highly attractive and imposing family house built in the Regency period offering elegant and well proportioned accommodation with many original features retained, these include decorative ceiling mouldings, cornices, lincrusta, working shutters, cast iron and marble fire surrounds and door furniture. The property is set within substantial landscaped gardens measuring in excess of half an acre; enjoying a tucked away position yet centrally located to take advantage of the town's excellent amenities and within close proximity of the mainline railway station.
The hardwood front door opens to an attractive reception hall. The ground floor provides an excellent range of accommodation, including a drawing room, dining room, music room, kitchen/breakfast room and utility. A cloakroom completes the ground floor. From the hallway a door opens to reveal access to the cellar; formally the servants quarters. The cellar boasts four separate compartments which combined extends to a substantial part of the footprint of the house.
From the hallway stairs rise to the first floor landings which afford access to five double bedrooms, a bathroom, a separate WC and one ensuite to the largest of the guest bedrooms.
The property is situated just off Castle Hill, near local shops and within approximately half a mile of the town centre and is ideally placed for amenities and mainline railway station. These include an indoor shopping precinct with a mixture of established brands and boutique stores, a multiplex cinema, a leisure centre and numerous bars and restaurants. The mainline stations offers fast services to London Paddington with fast trains taking 20 minutes. The station will form part of Crossrail and will then offer direct services into the heart of the Capital, including Canary Wharf in 55 minutes. By road, J8/9 of the M4 is within approximately three miles and offers connections to the M25 and Heathrow Airport.
To the front the property affords access via a crescent shaped driveway affording ample parking and a garden that is mainly laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders, a double side gate gives access to the rear. To the left of the side access is an original coach house complete with stabling and a two room gentlemen’s quarters above. In our view this combined space could be converted into ancillary accommodation for the main residence. The rear garden is a feature of the home being generously proportioned and beautifully mature with variety of fruit trees. A balustrade paved terrace steps down to a croquet lawn with flower borders and mature hedging which in total extends to in excess of half an acre and in our opinion must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
