DESCRIPTION

The Old Coach House is a most interesting property, believed to be the former coach house to Dornden, a late 19th century estate once occupied by Princess Louise, daughter of Queen Victoria. The Old Coach House was converted sometime in the 1950s with a later addition added soon after and is set within beautiful, mature gardens extending to just over one third of an acre in all.

The spacious family accommodation is arranged across two floors and provides a most flexible layout depending on individual requirements.

ACCOMMODATION

Points of particular note include: -

The wide entrance hall with its attractive parquet flooring, which runs throughout all the principal areas on the ground floor, makes a very good first impression and has a useful range of built-in cupboards.

The impressive, double aspect drawing room is an elegant room, is light and airy with its high ceiling and delightful outlooks over the gardens. There is a fireplace with granite hearth which, although currently not in use, could be reinstated if required.

The sitting room is a wonderful cosy room with its brick fireplace with inset log burner and half panelled walls. This room could also be used as a formal dining room.

The kitchen is well fitted with a range of matching base and wall units including a dresser unit with glass display cupboards. There are extensive work surfaces, an inset 4 burner gas hob, integrated eye level single electric fan oven and grill, and space and plumbing for a dishwasher. An opening leads to the separate utility area where there is space and plumbing for a washing machine and separate tumble dryer and room to accommodate a tall fridge/freezer.

There are two double bedrooms (one currently used as a study) and a luxury shower room on the ground floor as well as a beautifully appointed family bathroom with roll top bath

On the first floor there are two further double bedrooms (one with en-suite WC and wash basin) both with high ceilings and exposed timbers.

At one end of the house there is a large, l-shaped work shop which could, subject to the necessary consents, be converted into further living accommodation.

OUTSIDE

The Old Coach House is approached via double wooden gates leading to a large gravelled parking area and the integral tandem garage which would easily house two motor vehicles. If required, the garage could be converted into further living accommodation, subject to the necessary consents.

The mature gardens are an outstanding feature of the property and are extremely private and well screened from the road. There are good areas of lawn which wrap around the property on two sides and extensive terraces for outside dining. There are some fine specimen trees and shrubs including a beautiful Blue Cedar tree. A large pergola clad in wisteria, rambling rose and clematis leads to a "secret" courtyard area. There is a large summerhouse/studio, an attractive dove cote and various garden sheds. In all just over one third of an acre.
