SUMMARY 'Westfield House' is a remarkable Victorian property that offers perfect integration of both period features and contemporary modern living. The property is set in a plot of approximately one acre, with an additional two acres of land which is available under separate negotiation.
ACCOMMODATION A large gravel driveway approaches 'Westfield House' with an established garden and log stores to one side and a double garage to the other leading to a large workshop, with timber fencing enclosing the rear of the property.
As you enter the hallway there are two reception rooms to either side, in addition to the staircase and ground floor shower room. The reception rooms to the front of the property, both similar in size, are currently used as bedrooms with large bay windows and Victorian style fireplaces: one has a beautiful marble surround. All four rooms are traditional in design for a house of this period and offer versatile space.
The living room has a further open fireplace with stone surround and full length bi-fold doors that create a light and airy room with views to the rear overlooking the patio and garden. The solid walnut flooring of the dining room is noticeable as you enter, which also offers a good degree of light with further full length bi-fold doors that overlook the patio and garden. Whilst the room is spacious the inset log burner and flooring provide a cosy feel. A HIVE system has also been installed.
The kitchen/family room has porcelain tiles and under-floor heating, a partially vaulted ceiling, bi-fold doors to both sides, and a comprehensive range of kitchen units with stone work surfaces. A large island in the centre of the room provides a seating area and useful working space and with preparation sink. Appliances include an inset induction hob, a built-in double oven, integrated microwave, warming drawer, integrated fridge and a tap giving instant boiling hot water or chilled filtered water.
Just off the kitchen is the utility area with laundry room and additional shower room with sink and toilet. There is also access from here to the double garage, workshop and rear garden.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom with bath and shower. Bedroom 2, with en suite, leads to the balcony, as does the master bedroom which has a feature Victorian style fireplace. The third and fourth bedrooms both overlook the front of the property, Bedroom 3 also having an original Victorian fireplace.
GARDEN The rear garden has a large patio, with outside lighting, ideal for entertaining. These mature gardens have apple, fig and nut trees, shrubs, and the lawn leads to a small wooded area and to a summer house. There is also a zip wire!
