A lovely family home with plenty of potential in a wonderful countryside location.
The Warren is named for the wildlife that inhabits the surrounding hedges and meadows, it occupies an enviable rural position. This much-loved family home stands in the centre of its plot, and every room enjoys views over gardens and fields. Its new owners will have plenty of opportunity should they wish to improve or adapt.The accommodation briefly comprises four reception rooms, four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a double garage with room above, a gravel driveway with parking for multiple vehicles, generous front and back gardens and a paddock.Passing beneath a covered porch, the front door opens into the entrance hall. Stairs to the first floor lie to the right, along with a generous understairs storage cupboard and a downstairs WC. To the left, the spacious yet cosy living room with a large open fireplace, and overlooks the front garden, leading into the conservatory at the rear. Double doors open into the dining room, flowing in to the conservatory. In turn, the conservatory opens on to the patio, which runs around the rear and side of the house.Returning from the dining room to the entrance hall, the spacious kitchen and breakfast room look out on to the rear garden. A large, fully fitted utility room is situated at the far end of the property, with a back door opening into the garden. A second reception room at the front of the house completes the ground floor accommodation: this room usefully overlooks the drive and may suit several uses, for example, a home office, play room, or snug (as the current owners use it)Proceeding upstairs to the first floor, the principal bedroom suite is to the left. The room currently has built-in wardrobes across the room's length, though an area beyond the en suite bathroom may lend itself to becoming a walk-in wardrobe or dressing area. The four piece bathroom is in good order and is located near the bedroom entrance at the front of the house. A large window overlooks the rear garden and fields beyond. There are three other double bedrooms, all with built-in storage, and a recently refurbished family shower room. There is a large cupboard on the landing (housing a new cylinder tank) and the loft is suitably high and boarded, offering potential for conversion into living space, subject to the necessary consents.A detached double garage to the left of the house also has a room above, again offering potential for ancillary accommodation (subject to necessary consents). The property's grounds are a real highlight. The house shares a track and gravel drive with just one other property and a handful of farm buildings. There is ample room for several vehicles on the drive, with a lawn border to the front of the property. The rear garden is an excellent size, split into two sections separated by fencing. Immediately beyond the terrace, the garden is laid to lawn, with a small orchard of fruit trees in the far corner. The second section is kept less formal and includes a small copse of trees. Beyond the garden lie neighbouring open fields. The property also benefits from a paddock beside the house withseparate access from the track.
