A substantial village property with views over open fields to the rear, The Oaks offers characterful,
inviting accommodation set within private gardens. A comprehensive refurbishment by the current
owners has created a very well presented family home blending traditional features including
beamed ceilings and large exposed fireplaces with modern convenience; underfloor heating,
double glazing, and modern touches such as the log burner in the family room.
Well laid out reception and entertainment rooms to the ground floor are balanced by well sized
bedrooms and refitted bathrooms to the first and second floors, whilst the added space provided
by the gym and office adjacent to the garage complete this family home.
The drawing room, with panelled walls in reclaimed timber, features an exposed brick inglenook
with inset wood burner and bressumer beam over, creates a warm and welcoming feeling room,
open to a formal dining area, which in turn has double doors opening onto a rear terrace, making
an ideal area for hosting guests.
Off an inner hall, a garden room brings the outside in, with bi-folding doors to two sides opening
out onto the largest rear terrace, perfect for taking in the garden in all weathers.
The kitchen, which sits at the heart of the home, has a large breakfasting area, central island with
bench to one end, plenty of storage, integrated wine chiller and inset sink, all set within easy reach
of the Rangemaster, which is framed by an exposed brick fireplace with storage to either side. A
wide range of bespoke hand painted units with oak worktops and larder cupboard provide ample
storage, whilst underfloor heating gently warms the room. From the kitchen, a door leads to a
large family room with attractive modern log burner and through to a useful utility and cobble
floored boot room which still features a traditional brick feeding trough and wall mounted feeding
baskets, as well as an original timber stall divide. Off the boot room lie two rooms perfect for those
who like to entertain, - the first, a games room with vaulted ceiling and bar to one side, the second,
a twelve seat cinema room with tiered seating, ideal for relaxing to watch the latest films.
The bedroom accommodation at The Oaks is set over two floors; the first floor including the
principal en-suite bedroom which enjoys views over the fields to the rear, as well as two double
bedrooms with a jack and jill bathroom, a further bedroom, family bathroom, cloakroom and fully
fitted dressing room. To the second floor, two further bedrooms and an en-suite shower room.
Approached via electric timber gates over a gravelled driveway to the triple garage, The Oaks sits
well within its plot, with gardens and courtyard to all sides. Adjacent to the garage, a gym and
office (currently used as a beauty room) add extra space, with a further workshop accessed via
From the driveway, a cobbled pathway leads to small courtyard that can be accessed from the
kitchen, a raised area with vegetable beds enclosed by railways sleepers, and an attractive timber
framed greenhouse. Steps lead through a gateway to the main gardens which wrap around the
property, with a wide terrace framing three sides of the main house.
The gardens which benefit from a good level of privacy, are mostly laid to lawn, dotted with
matures trees and herbaceous borders, a summer house and storage shed.
To the bottom of the garden, a post and rail fence gives an open view to the paddocks beyond.
