‘Ashfield’ is quite simply a stunning Blonde Sandstone period home originally built circa 1860 and can lay claim to the first house in the village to obtain electricity. Comprehensively upgraded in recent years, this truly magnificent family home retains a wealth of period features set in beautiful lawn gardens extending to 1.9a including woodland, in a private estate.
This magnificent family home is in beautiful decorative order throughout. Entered via an entrance vestibule into a broad reception hallway you are met with an original staircase leading to the upper level accommodation. It is immediately apparent as to the elegance of this family home which is about to unfold…
On the ground floor there is a formal lounge with double aspect windows, formal dining, family room, office, boot room, plant room and utility. The stunning breakfast kitchen is open plan with space for casual dining with the kitchen itself designed and built by ‘Burndale’ adding to the elegance. There are ample wall & base units with integrated oven (with microwave) hob, extractor hood, fridge and dishwasher. An undoubted feature is the AGA in the breakfast area. Throughout the property there are a wealth of period features including deep cornice, ceiling roses and marble fireplaces in the dining room, family room and office. Apart from the office which has a gas fire the others have ‘Burley’ fireball log burners providing warmth and character to an already characterful home. Completing the downstairs is a gardener’s loo and separate cloakroom with WC.
The stairwell leads to a half landing where the fifth bedroom, tv room and a shower room can be found. On the first floor the gallery landing leads to four further bedrooms, (principal with en-suite shower room), bathroom with freestanding bath, separate dressing room and a further shower room.
Externally the garden grounds are mainly laid to lawn with the property approached by a comprehensive monobloc driveway that leads to the outbuildings which includes a substantial garage, ‘L’ shaped gym, workshop and storage. The courtyard is to the rear and has a walled terrace adjacent overlooking the stunning lawn gardens.
The specification extends to re-wring throughout, gas central heating Cat5 cabling in the office and room and refurbished sash & case windows.
