Thorns is a classic Grade II Listed Georgian detached house, in two and a half acres of
beautifully-presented grounds, located in the desirable village of Crondall. The property dates
partly from the 16th century, with a significant
Georgian addition, and has well-proportioned
accommodation which, though in need of updating, has enormous potential for renovation or redevelopment (subject to planning). This is a rare opportunity, Thorns having been in the same family for 40 years. Prospective purchasers are advised that they should make their own planning enquiries of Hart District Council.
The accommodation benefits from large, low level
sash windows, which help to create a light and airy feel throughout. On the ground floor there is a welcoming dual aspect sitting room, with a gas fireplace, a formal dining room to the front and a cosy snug/family room with a bay window with built-in seating. The kitchen features stunning views to the rear. There is a substantial cellar accessed from beneath the main staircase, perfect for wine cellar storage. A second staircase leads from the inner hall near the kitchen to the first floor.
Upstairs, the four bedrooms are all generous
doubles, with the main enjoying a substantial en
suite bathroom and plenty of fitted storage. One of the bedrooms has access to its own dressing area, while there is also a family bathroom and a separate cloakroom.
EPC Rating - exempt, as listed.
To the front of the property there is a five-bar wooden gate leading to a walled driveway and parking area, with a pathway leading to the neat front gardens and to the main entrance. There is a large garage, originally a barn dating from the 16th century, with an electric up-and-over door providing further secure off-road parking. A separate door to the rear of the barn leads to a former donkey stable providing additional storage. To the rear there are beautifully manicured gardens, with box topiary, Magnolia, mature Acer and herbaceous borders. There is also a sunken pond, an orchard of old apple, pear and plum trees, while a pergola clad with jasmine and honeysuckle leads to the walled gardens. Beyond the gardens there is a sizeable paddock and field, suitable for equestrian use, beyond which lies Oak Park Golf Course.
