Property Details

The property

The property is set over two floors and offers bright open and spacious living accommodation with high ceiling throughout. Other noticeable features include the solid oak floors throughout most of the downstairs living and the three real fireplaces on offer, an open fireplace in both the living and sitting room and a modern log burner in the dining/breakfast room. Upon entering the property you will find a spacious entrance hall that leads to all ground floor accommodation. At the front of the property you will find a handy study and a dual aspect sitting room that leads onto the side garden. Towards the rear of the property there is a large living room with stunning bay window. The hallway then leads you round to the formal dining/breakfast area with double doors opening onto the rear garden and then onto the spacious fully fitted kitchen that has the added benefit of internal access into the garage/workshop. The downstairs is completed by a cloakroom and a very handy cellar that can be accessed via the entrance hall just off of the dining/breakfast room.

On the first floor you are immediately greeted by the large L shaped landing that in turn leads to three generous double bedrooms, with the main bedroom benefitting from the bay window, and a good sized single bedroom. There is the main family bathroom and a very useful and completely separate shower room.

Overall it is very clear this has been a well loved and carefully maintained family home over the years and we are sure it will make a stunning family home as it is. However there is also the added benefit of this rather unique, rarely available type of property still offering a huge amount of potential. Enjoying large amounts of space on three sides there is potential to extend the property without detracting too much from the feel of outside space that the ample gardens offer.

The grounds

Enworth House is set some way back from the road and can be reached via a private driveway that leads to the front of the property. As Enworth House lies deep within the generous plot ,while maintaining a very spacious rear garden, it also enjoys a wide open and spacious front garden which adds to the rather grand feeling you cant help but encompassed by when approaching the property. Accessed from Church Road the driveway winds through mature gardens with large planted borders and specimen trees before opening up into a wider gravelled parking area, further block paved front driveway that leads to the garage/workshop and vast open well kept front lawn.

To the rear of the property there is a stunning, well maintained, garden that offers further open lawn areas, mature planted borders with a mix of shrubs, plants and mature specimen trees, various brick built and timber storage sheds, wood store and paved patio/courtyard garden area. There is also a spacious side garden with gated access that leads to the front of the property. The rear garden boasts a South Easterly facing position and the side garden a South Westerly facing position meaning you can enjoy full sun throughout the entire day.
