Property description

Somerhill is a stunning detached home built in the 'Arts & Crafts' style and is accessed from Rodean Crescent through a private gated entrance.

The garden is planted in a Gertrude Jekyll style and is well stocked, beautifully landscaped and includes an extensive southerly facing paved terrace and incorporates a pond.

The entrance porch leads to an impressive entrance hall with wide solid wood floor-boards, exposed beams and some wood panelling. The drawing room is a very special room with an impressive double-height vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers, leaded-light windows, some stained glass, beautiful solid wood floor and a large inglenook fireplace with gargoyle carvings.

The kitchen/breakfast room is a very spacious room with shaker style units with solid wood work surfaces and includes a range of integrated appliances. Adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast room is a useful utility room, from which a door gives further access to the swimming pool and rear garden terraces.
