DESCRIPTION Brief description of accommodation (see floor plan for layout and room sizes). "Bourne House" is a handsome six bedroom Edwardian country house, the original part of which was built in 1904. Internally and externally there are a host of character features reminiscent of the age. In recent years, it has been the subject of a large extension / remodelling project by the present vendors and is now a beautiful country home that would suit the needs of any active family.
The front door opens into a welcoming hallway with original tiled floor that forms the centre of this home. But it is the incredibly spacious kitchen / breakfast room with its Aga and french doors giving views over and access to the garden, that is truly the heart of this home. Also at the rear of the house is the elegant sitting room which has a grand but warm feel. A wood burning stove makes a cosy focal point. In addition, the fact that this room also has french doors that lead out onto the patio, which in turn has panoramic views of the countryside, makes this space ideal for entertaining family or friends. The dining room, which is well positioned next to the kitchen, could serve a variety of uses, as could the additional reception room at the front of the house which is currently used as a study cum snug. There is also a cloakroom on the ground floor and space for cloaks storage.
A beautiful staircase leads to a first floor landing which also gives access to a staircase to the attic floor. On the first floor, the principal bedroom, with its en-suite bathroom and spectacular countryside views, is somewhere to relax at the end of a long day. There are three further double bedrooms on this floor, one of which has an en-suite shower room, and all of which are light and airy and full of character. The good size family bathroom is well appointed with a roll top bath and separate shower. On the second floor, there are two further spacious rooms, one of which is currently being used as an office and the other as a twin bedroom. Both are served by a separate bathroom.
OUTSIDE Bourne House is approached over two existing accesses, both of which lead onto driveways where there is plentiful parking and turning. The grounds, which extend to circa 1.25 acres (unmeasured), are mainly south facing and comprise a mixture of wide open lawns and wild areas. There is also a sunken garden which has something of the feel of a secret garden. A large patio at the back of the house provides a sunny spot for summer dining and entertaining.
