The Firs is an attractive, individual detached property, built for the current owners occupation and constructed with brick and flint elevations to an interesting design. Enjoying an elevated position, the property is approached via a large driveway and set behind a good sized lawned garden, well back from the road. The driveway leads to the detached triple cart lodge which has an adjoining workshop/garden store and an external staircase leads to a one bedroom annexe above, which has a kitchen/living room, double bedroom and shower room. The main house has been carefully thought out and provides versatile accommodation across four floors. The house certainly suits large families and could easily be sub-divided to create annexe style accommodation if necessary. In a little more detail the main house comprises reception hall leading to the drawing room, which has a fireplace and useful storage cupboard. There is a door to the second kitchen which is fitted with a range of handmade wooden units and tiled floor, and a door to the potential annexe bedroom/reception room which has a dual aspect and double doors to the garden. This room also has an en suite bathroom and wc. A door from the drawing room leads to the sitting room, which is the principle reception room in the house and has views to the front and rear, attractive stripped wood flooring and a large brick fireplace. This leads to the inner hall of the house where there is a door to the courtyard and dining room which overlooks the front garden and has double doors to a large decked area. The kitchen/breakfast room is at the back of the house and is well fitted with a range of handcrafted units, natural stone working surfaces and a host of integrated appliances including a range style cooker. It also has double doors to the rear. There is a cloaks cupboard and cloakroom off the hall where there is also the staircase to the first floor and basement, which comprises a hallway, plant room and a large utility/laundry which also has the central heating system and rain water storage units. There is a useful laundry chute from the first floor. Also in the basement is a very versatile games room. On the first floor there are five bedrooms, all of which are a good size. The principle bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room and there is a further guest suite with en suite. Bedrooms 3 & 5 do have a connecting door which may be useful for those wanting a bedroom with adjoining playroom or nursery and bedroom 3 is currently well fitted as a home office/study with desk, shelving etc. There is also a well appointed family bathroom. On the second floor there are two further bedrooms and an en suite shower room. The house has a fresh air circulation system and surface water harvesting to provide grey water for the toilets. There is a burglar alarm and CCTV and high quality Anderson windows. There is also central heating. Outside, the gardens extend to the side and rear of the house and are laid mainly to lawn, enclosed by post and rail fencing and have lovely views to the rear over paddocks and the church beyond. There is a variety of mature shrubs and trees and a sunken courtyard terrace providing excellent levels of privacy. All in all a quite exceptional family house. No expense has been spared when designing, constructing and finishing the house and in order to appreciate the versatile and extensive accommodation, viewing really is essential.
