About this property
Gablehurst is one of the finest and most distinctive Edwardian detached houses in the oldest part of this picturesque conservation village. A much loved family home for just under 20 years, it offers flexible and well proportioned accommodation over 2 floors with the added benefit of a large conservatory linking to a triple garage. The present owners have also recently secured planning permission (ref 19/01373/FUL) to convert this area extending the kitchen, providing a larger entertaining area and space to sit and enjoy the gardens.
This is a large house but not too large, extending to around 3000 sq/ft, the majority of rooms being of near perfect proportion and all enjoying copious amounts of natural light. Period features are in abundance, including numerous attractive fireplaces, original and wooden double-glazed replacements sash windows, high ceilings lined with decorative coving and the rather inviting first floor balcony. The ground floor rooms are versatile and could serve a number of uses including a good sized office, ideal for working at home. All 4 bedrooms being good doubles served by 2 contemporary bathrooms.
The property is surrounded by attractive landscaped grounds complimenting this wonderful house. The South West facing garden has a range of pretty borders, mature trees, together with a large lawned area and terrace areas, providing space for families to enjoy and entertain.
In addition to the house there is triple garage and plenty of parking.
