This wonderful family home has been in the same ownership for over 50 years, during which time it has been sympathetically modernised and improved, whilst retaining the original charm and character of what is a landmark home of the area.
The original layout offers substantial living space and flexible accommodation currently configured on the ground floor to provide an impressive drawing room, a lovely dining room and a further good size reception, currently used as a sitting room. In addition, there is a study and a large south westerly aspect conservatory/sun room enjoying a wonderful view over the gardens to the rear. The kitchen/breakfast room is a great family size with a walk in pantry with an adjacent utility and cloakroom.
On the first floor there is a master bedroom next to a family bathroom which can also be accessed from the landing. There are a further two bedrooms on this floor, one with its own en suite shower/WC and in addition a separate cloakroom. On the top floor there are 3 further good size bedrooms together with a bathroom.
The flexible layout of the house essentially means that one section of the house has the potential to be self contained with additional staircases enabling access to all floors.
Abbotts House is set back from the road, with driveway providing parking for several vehicles in front of a substantial detached garage, with two large storage rooms over, approached via an internal staircase. We feel this may offer further potential for conversion to a self contained annexe, subject to planning permission.
The delightful and quite stunning landscaped grounds and gardens extend to around 1.50 acres. These have been lovingly maintained and feature a dazzling array of mature plants and shrubs, plus specimen fruit trees and a pathway leading to the rear meadow / potential paddock. There are various topiary box hedging borders and a few outbuildings including a stable, sheds and an old wash house which is currently used as a children's playhouse
