Set within delightful south-facing gardens, The Druce is an imposing property offering approximately 4,532 sq. ft. of versatile accommodation, the layout and style being practical and well-designed for family living and entertaining. The house boasts a pool complex, complete with changing room, sauna, bar and cloakroom, and presents a rare opportunity for those seeking a property of immense character, with potential for further improvement and expansion.
The reception rooms are generously proportioned, particularly the sitting room which features sliding patio doors opening out to the rear patio, a high pine-clad ceiling and a wall of fitted units and shelving. Situated off the reception hall is a family room with a feature exposed brick fireplace and a good size dining room with attractive wood block flooring. This room connects with the kitchen/breakfast room, therefore affording excellent entertaining space. The kitchen, with its tiled floor, is fitted with a range of units, a 1½ bowl sink unit with an Insinkerator unit, and integral appliances including a Gaggenau ceramic hob, Bauknecht double oven and a Miele dishwasher. There is a useful larder/store cupboard and built-in seating in the breakfast area.
The leisure complex comprises a pool room with three sets of sliding patio doors opening out to the rear patio/bbq area, a changing room, cloakroom, sauna and a fully equipped bar, also with sliding doors opening out to the rear patio. The ground floor further comprises a spacious bedroom with double doors out to the patio, an en suite bathroom with a large jacuzzi bath, a utility/laundry room, a walk-in coats cupboard, a cloakroom and a wine store.
The first floor accommodation is arranged to provide a dual aspect master bedroom with a ’his and hers’ vanity unit in addition to an en suite bathroom, four further bedrooms and a shower room.
Set well back from the road, The Druce is approached via a carriage driveway and provides off-road parking. A separate driveway provides access to the double garage with a room above, ideal for storage or conversion. An endearing feature of the property is the rear garden which enjoys total seclusion and provides a delightful setting for the house. It has been designed to provide ’year round’ visual interest combined with designated leisure and relaxation areas. Principally laid to the lawn, the gardens are interspersed with mature shrubs and trees and the house elevations are enhanced by climbing roses and vines.
