Description

An impressive and substantial house built probably in the latter years of the 19th Century of traditional brick and tile construction with whitened elevations and decorative timber studding, and standing in mature gardens of about half an acre. The house is approached by a long, gated driveway and due to the south-west orientation, room layout and generous grounds, one has to be reminded that Highcroft is attached on the eastern boundary. The nicely proportioned rooms radiate from a spacious staircase hall with feature stained-glass windows to the entrance and first floor landing, and the architectural theme continues with fine joinery, open fireplaces and an exceptional oak-panelled dining room. This is a fine family home with a country house feel and the modern practicalities of replacement double glazing to the majority of windows and gas fired central heating.

The approach to the house is a five-bar gate opening to the long driveway, which divides the main lawn and terminates in a gravelled turning circle with established shrubbery. There is a lightly wooded area on a bank sloping to the south with several specimen trees, an ideal outside adventure space for children.
