********CLOSING DATE THURSDAY 29TH JULY 2021 at 12pm (NOON) ******************
Harper & Stone are truly delighted to present to the open market “Holmhurst” a substantial traditional 1890s Victorian family home. On the market for the first time in over 50 years, the property hosts a wealth of original features including Victorian tiled floor and striking fireplaces in all bedrooms and two reception rooms.
The property extends to approximately 289 square meters of flexible living accommodation over 2 floors, along with stunning private gardens to the front and the back located within a friendly sought after village community.
Double storm doors guide one into the welcoming hallway which gives access to the ground floor living area, comprising a formal sitting room (the original dining room), family room, kitchen/dining room, bedroom 5/office, shower room and conservatory. The formal sitting room is an impressive, inviting room with front facing aspect. The bay window has original working shutters which have been lined with an original Indian fabric, hence when closed present a totally unique feel. The fireplace and hearth were modernised in the 20th century. The current owners sourced a late 19th century fireplace and replaced the hearth to make both in keeping with the age of the house. The family room on the left hand side of the hall is a light, bright cosy front facing living space with an original fireplace with tiled grate.
Continuing on the left of the hallway is the dining room (the original kitchen) and a “modern” kitchen built on in 1920. The compact kitchen houses a good range of wall and base units, four ring hob (two gas/two electric), integrated oven, fridge freezer and dishwasher. The kitchen window looks through to the conservatory and back garden.
There is a utility room with sink and space for a washing machine. The dining room has original pulleys, bespoke dresser, Rayburn cooker and access to the conservatory.
The study/fifth bedroom sits at the rear of the house and has dual aspects to the rear and side of the house. This room, which has excellent storage space, has the potential to be used as the new owner feels would benefit their own requirements. It has been a bedroom, children’s playroom, an office and originally was the maid’s quarters. The downstairs shower room completes the ground floor accommodation including shower, hand basin, WC and storage cupboard under the stairs.
The traditional quarter turn staircase leads to the first floor accommodation and boasts a partially stained glass window with views to the back garden.
To the left at the top of the stairs is bedroom 2, this was originally the formal drawing room and retains the original fire surround along with picturesque bay window.
The bay windowed master bedroom is a grand space, complete with fitted wardrobes and view over a grassy area with trees, known as “the Triangle”. Bedroom 3 is rear facing and bedroom 4 front facing, both are spacious with fitted wardrobes along with window seats with storage space underneath. Both rooms have original open fireplaces.
The family bathroom is accessed from the first floor landing encompassing bath with handheld shower, walk in electric shower, wash basin, WC and heated towel rail.
The fifth door opens into a large storage cupboard from which the partially floored attic is accessed.
Externally there is a single garage together with separate generous shed/workshop.
The front garden offers the house privacy with a walnut tree and well established rhododendrons. There is also parking space in front of the house and in the driveway.
The conservatory leads into the back garden which is a haven for any garden lover. An array of mature greenery can be enjoyed from every aspect. There is a patio area which can be accessed from the conservatory and finally a simple water feature adds serenity to the garden.
