Built in 1924, this substantial Edwardian home beautifully depicts the Arts & Crafts movement and a genteel era when form and style were intricately linked to architecture and design. The house has undergone complete renovation and refurbishment by the current owners who have faithfully reproduced the interior in keeping with its original style whilst adding modern elements in the handsome extension, which houses the pool room, with a stunning indoor swimming pool and a gym or hobbies room. Throughout the house fabrics, wallpapers, radiators, fixtures and fitments have been chosen to suit the period and to complement the original staircase, fire surrounds and stained glass windows. The result is a fantastic home ranging over three floors plus extensive cellars, with superb views out over its own private grounds which extend to approx. 1.9 acres filled with lawns and an abundance of shrubs and trees. The house, with its attached double garage, is set back from the road behind a sweeping in/out drive and a beautiful foregarden which provides excellent privacy and seclusion.
