Beaver House forms a fabulous, beautifully proportioned, Georgian House, set within the middle of Mayfield. The house has been beautifully maintained and looked after over the years, with the detached garage and studio building having recently been comprehensively overhauled, and the rear garden landscaped by a Chelsea Flower Show award winner. Internally too, the house has been beautifully decorated throughout, with a classic kitchen, and modern en-suite and updated bathroom.
One approaches the house via a gate with Period tiled path to the front door with porch above. The door leads into a rather lovely entrance hall, with stairs to the first floor, with panelled access to an under stairs cupboard, part panelled walls, tiled flooring and door to the cloakroom, with WC and basin, and frosted internal window.
A door to the left leads into a sitting room with part panelled walls, sash window to front with fitted shutters and window to side, oak flooring and former fireplace.
The kitchen is beyond the sitting room, complete with a four oven Aga with ceramic twin hob, plus gas four ring hob and tiled splash back with extractor above. There is a range of painted wooden units to the opposite side, with corian worktops, inset sink with drainer, high level cupboards to another wall housing the fridge/freezer, and a matching movable central island. The large bay window to rear makes this room open into the garden, with a fitted bench seat with storage within the bay. A door leads out to the rear garden.
Off the kitchen is a utility room, with a matching array of cupboards and drawers, plus space for appliances, the central heating boiler and a door to the driveway to side.
The other side of the house comprises a formal living room, with sash window to front with fitted shutters, porthole window to side, gas fireplace with ornate painted surround and mantle and a marble hearth, oak flooring and picture rail, plus double width opening to the dining room to rear.
The dining room forms a partly vaulted space with oak flooring, panelled walls, an range of fitted cupboards, and a wall of windows to overlook the rear garden, including a beautiful stained glass panel, plus a door leading back to the kitchen.
The first floor comprises an open landing, with stairs also leading up to the first floor and a door to the airing cupboard and sash window to front. The bathroom has been elegantly modernised, with a modern roll-top bath, basin and Wc with concealed cistern, frosted sash window to front and window to side, part panelled walls and towel rail.
The master bedroom is a good sized room, with two sash windows to front and port-hole window to side, oak flooring and a door to the en-suite shower room, which again, has been strikingly modernised, with a walk-in shower, vanity unit with basin and wall-mounted WC with concealed cistern, black granite wall tiles, modern towel rail and frosted sash window to rear.
The second bedroom is a rear facing bedroom, with sash window to rear and port-hole window to side, plus an array of fitted wardrobes.
The second floor then comprises two large double bedrooms, with both rooms enjoying partly sloping walls to a vaulted ceiling, with dormer windows to rear with fitted shutters, and one of the bedrooms enjoying fitted storage and sink, whilst between the two bedrooms is a cloakroom with a WC and a store cupboard.
Outside, at the front of the house is a walkway with granite set inserts and iron railings to the front wall. To the left is the driveway, with brick pillars and block paved parking area for two cars. There is an iron gate to the front path, and door to the utility room, plus twin doors to the garage.
The garage building has been completely refurbished in recent months, with new cladding and doors, roof and clock tower. The double doors lead into a garage, with door to the rear garden and also a door to the studio beyond. To the side of the garage is a gate from the driveway to the rear garden, plus to the other side, is a door to a covered storage area, which also has a door to the rear garden at the far end.
The studio is a very useful room, with windows and doors overlooking the rear garden, making for a fabulous home office, art studio or gym.
The rear garden, is a delight. Designed and landscaped by a Chelsea Flower Show winner, the garden has been made easy maintenance, with large paved terrace, sweeping paved, shallow steps and predominantly raised flowerbeds with a mixture of curves and straight lines, making the most of the partly walled garden and a light resin-bonded base. The garden is South facing, so makes the most of its aspect, with seating areas and architectural pots and planters and an array of specimen plants and shrubs.
