A rather unique opportunity to purchase a four bedroom detached family house in need of modernisation and offering considerable scope to extend and enlarge, with a detached, self-contained one bedroom annexe, garage, parking and outbuildings, all set within substantial and beautifully landscaped gardens to include an orchard, wild garden, vegetable garden and lawns, in a wonderful location on the fringes of the village.
EPC Rating E for the house and EPC Rating D for the annexe (Golden Grove).
Landscapes Rise forms a 1970s detached family home, offering good sized and bright family accommodation, in need of modernisation, and offering considerable scope to extend and enlarge, subject to any planning consents. The current family have owned the house from new, and in recent years obtained planning consents to add the Scandinavian style log-cabin annexe to the garden, adjacent to the outbuildings and the brick garage building.
The main house provides atypical 1970s space and character, with brick lower elevations and white weather boarded upper elevations, parquet flooring and large windows, with the main accommodation well laid out. The recessed porch provides access into a front lobby, a further door into the entrance hall, with parquet flooring, window to front and stairs leading up to the first floor with an under stairs cupboard.
A door leads into the sitting room, with parquet flooring, a large window to front, brick and tile 'Baxi' fireplace and an opening into the dining room, with a continuation of the parquet flooring, window to side and French doors to the rear conservatory, which has windows and doors overlooking the rear garden.
The kitchen has a lovely outlook over the rear garden, with a range of cupboards and drawers, granite effect worktops, with an integrated sink with drainer, space for a cooker, fridge/freezer, dresser unit and the wall mounted boiler. There is a built-in larder cupboard and a further cupboard.
An opening leads into a rear lobby, with access to a utility room, with space and plumbing for various appliances, further pine cupboards and a butler sink, window to rear and a door to the rear garden. Adjacent is the ground floor shower room, with a quarry tiled floor, window to side, plus a WC, basin and tiled shower cubicle.
At the front is a family room, formed from a previously converted garage, with windows to front and side, and oak flooring.
The first floor landing is a bright, open space, with access to all rooms. The main bedroom is to the front of the house, with a window to front and built-in wardrobe.
The second and third bedrooms have windows overlooking the rear garden, with one enjoying a built-in wardrobe. The fourth bedroom is at the front, with a built-in wardrobe.
The bathroom was formerly two rooms, previously amalgamated and modernised with a white suite comprising a panelled bath with shower over, basin and WC, part tiled walls, two windows to rear and towel rail.
Outside there is a gated driveway, with off road parking for a couple of cars, with a further driveway leading down the left side of the house to the garage and annex beyond. The front of the property is well screened from the lane via mature hedging and fencing. To the right is a small lawn with flower beds and maturing shrubs and trees.
The rear garden is a fabulous space, with mature boundaries, and various, subtle levels, with the level by the house enjoying a quiet, paved seating area, a central path through the lawn, a mature apple tree and raised flowerbed borders.
The lower level provides a wide expanse of lawn, flower bed borders, and an angled grass path to one side, and the drive to the other side. The drive leads down to a further area of gravel parking with access to the garage.
The garage is one of a line of outbuildings, with the garage being the principle room, with ample space for a car and windows to both sides and a pedestrian door to side. A door within the garage leads into a studio/office, but is currently used as a utility/hobbies room, with a range of cupboards and drawers, sink unit and windows to both sides.
The final room is a workshop and machine store, with a door to side and a new roof. Between the workshop and the garage is a covered log store.
Adjacent to the outbuildings is a small orchard, with numerous maturing fruit trees, and a gate in the hedge leads into a hedge enclosed, private garden, with raised vegetable patches, a central rose arch, rose garden and wildflower garden, with espalier fruit trees to one side.
The Annexe(Golden Grove) then runs across the garden, formed from a well-researched Scandinavian company, forming a highly insulated log cabin, comprising one double bedroom, shower room, kitchen and a triple aspect sitting room. The cabin is well presented and is separately rated and could be used for parents, office or income potential via a holiday let, or Air BnB. It also has a separate electrical meter and electric heating, double glazing, sprinkler system and a lovely natural wood finish throughout.
Moreover, the Annexe is surrounded by its own area of garden, with a mature Acer, small pond and waterfall, and numerous trees and shrubs. This area is completely private and screened, and a natural haven for wild birds.
Beyond this part of the garden, there is a fenced area with several mature specimen trees, including ‘Monkey Puzzle’, ‘Tulip Tree’, maple, fruit trees, firs and oak.
