The property forms a versatile home, dating from the 1930s, enjoying ample windows and lots of light, plus some characterful features typical of the era, including a stone fireplace to the sitting room, corner windows and timbers to the kitchen ceiling.
One approaches via an entrance porch with a further door to the hallway, with window to front and stairs to first floor, doors to the sitting room, with open fireplace with a painted stone surround, window to side and French doors to a paved terrace.
A dining room is adjacent, also with a fireplace, housing a modern electric fire and with French doors leading to a conservatory, enjoying glass roof and windows, plus doors to the rear garden and wonderful views across the garden and through the trees to the countryside beyond.
The kitchen is a good sized family kitchen, comprising a range of cream coloured gloss-fronted cupboards and drawers, with wood effect Amtico flooring and black granite worktops, tiled splash backs, integrated one and a half bowl sink with drainer, space for a range cooker, recess housing the fridge/freezer and further under counter space for a dish washer. Window to side overlooking the garden towards the paddocks.
Steps lead up from the kitchen to an area that could be completely self-contained, or could also be a useful breakfast room/family room. There are windows to front and side, tiled flooring and attractive raised ceiling. Off this room is a triple aspect double bedroom with a lovely outlook over the garden to rear, and an en-suite shower room comprising a shower, WC and basin, window to front tiled floor and part tiled walls. This area could also form part of an annex, or indeed contained home office.
An arch from the opposite end of the kitchen leads to a rear lobby plus utility room with more space for appliances, windows and doors to the rear garden.
The first floor landing is a bright open space, with a large window to front, balustraded walkway and further stairs to the attic bedroom.
The master bedroom is a good size, with corner windows to front, side and rear, with the rear windows offering a fabulous view across the surrounding countryside. There are ample fitted wardrobes and dressing table.
There is a further double bedroom to rear, also with a lovely outlook, plus fitted wardrobes, and a further bedroom to rear, with a fitted cupboard and lovely outlook. A fourth bedroom is at the front of the house.
The attic room offers considerable further potential, either to form bedrooms, or office space, a play room, or just storage. There is a large velux window to rear with lovely views, and the whole room is plastered and carpeted.
Outside to the front are wooden electric gates to a large area of off road parking, surrounded by mature plants, flower bed and fencing. Steps lead down to the front door. One can also access the property via a second driveway, which also provides direct access to the fields, with a track leading to the stable yard.
The rest of the garden is mainly to the side and rear of the house, with a paved patio directly behind the house, plus a levelled area of lawn leading to a further seating area from which you get the best view to the countryside beyond.
The rear garden is beautiful, with established flower bed borders, with several tall trees, including a blue Cedar and Oaks.
To one side of the house is a chicken coup, whilst to the other is a further patio enjoying an outlook to the paddocks. There is a greenhouse, and stepping stone path from the house to the stable yard.
The Stables form two large boxes, plus a substantial hay store/tack room and/or workshop, suitable for turning into more boxes, if required. Currently the stables have typical stable doors facing the paddocks, whilst the other barn has double doors facing the paddocks and a further door to the yard. There is power and water supplied, and the yard is completely fenced, with a small gate to the garden and five bar gate to the paddocks and track back to the drive.
The paddocks are fenced with sheep wire and post fencing, divided into paddocks with five bar gates linking the paddocks, plus a wooded area between the second and third paddock, which is available by separate negotiation. In total, the gardens, paddocks and wooded area total around 3.5 acres. There is also direct access to the disused railway line and the woods for walks, and access back to Mayfield.
