Individual and beautifully presented home with wonderful gardens (about 1 acre), self-contained annexe and outbuildings.
Johnsons Coppice has an abundance of charm and has been elegantly styled to create a very special home full of character. The original part of the house dates back to 1850 when it formed the major part of a gate lodge to Dropmore Park. The property was subsequently extended and refurbished by the current owner and is beautifully presented, and incorporates a lovely self-contained annexe with a separate entrance. There is also an alarm and CCTV system.
The gated front entrance opens into the reception hall with stairs to the first floor, useful storage cupboards and a cloakroom with shower. Doors lead through to the spacious dining area which in turn leads through to the imposing sitting room. This room has wonderful views over the garden with two sets of bi-fold doors opening onto the terrace. A wooden framed ornate fireplace with wood burning stove is a focal point of the room.
The spacious kitchen/breakfast room, fitted with wall and floor units and integrated appliances including a dishwasher, full height fridge and freezer and a Rangemaster. This light and airy room with a striking decorative tiled floor and views over the garden, also offers plenty of space for a table. Two sets of French doors open onto the delightful garden terrace. The adjacent utility area has a sink, integrated washing machine and washer dryer and fitted cupboards housing a pantry and hanging space. Also on this floor is a superb annexe with a sitting room, double bedroom, bathroom, separate entrance and parking to the front. There are kitchen facilities in the sitting room, which also enjoys a decorative fireplace with an electric wood burner and plantation shutters on the windows. A study and cloakroom completes the accommodation on the ground floor.
On the first floor, the landing is lovely and bright and includes a wall of bespoke mirrored fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom is dual aspect with an en suite shower room and front facing views. There are two further bedrooms on this floor, one with fitted wardrobes and bi-fold windows with wonderful views of the garden. Both bedrooms are served by a family bathroom. On the second floor is an additional bedroom in the eaves, flooded with natural light from 6 Velux windows. This is perfect for a children’s room due to its restricted height but could have multiple uses.
The property is approached from a peaceful country lane, with a generous parking area and a two bay car port, accessed through wooden gates. The garden, terrace and parking area is divided with attractive post and rail fencing giving a lovely courtyard feel. The gardens are superb and one of the real selling features. Within the gardens is a large lawned area currently laid out as a tennis court and several outbuildings including a games room, gym, office and workshop, together with two storage sheds and a bike store. The grounds are well screened with trees and shrubs and feature lawn and woodland areas with paths, an oriental garden, water fountain, pergola, a Gothic folly ruin and a decking area. The enclosed spacious terrace at the rear of the property is perfect for outdoor entertaining.
