The accommodation on offer comprises: panelled entrance door opening to reception hall with door to rear garden, a fine sweeping staircase off to first floor with door beneath leading to the vaulted cellars. The drawing room is an outstanding reception with a light and airy atmosphere created by large French doors to front with shutters and feature sash bay window to side enjoying open views, complemented by a window seat and panelled shutters. The striking fireplace has a limestone surround and Jotul wood burning stove.

The living room is a comfortable reception with traditional fireplace with granite hearth, fitted book shelving and sash window to front with unusual highwayman shutter. The study/fifth bedroom provides the opportunity for flexible accommodation, with attractive original cupboard and beautiful open views. This leads to the newly fitted shower room, complete with glazed fired earth tiling and underfloor heating.

The 32ft kitchen breakfast room is a stunning newly built room, creating a wonderful space flooded with light from two roof lanterns, handmade patio doors and dual aspect windows. The kitchen is fitted with a bespoke range of hand painted units complemented by honed granite preparation surfaces, central island with power points, modern gas 4 oven AGA beneath a traditional overmantle and oak flooring. A delightful feature is the “walk in” pantry, providing extensive storage alongside utility cupboard housing newly installed high pressure hot water system. Large fitted dresser in the dining area.

On the first floor staircase rises from the reception hall to landing leading to four excellently proportioned double bedrooms, all of which retain fireplaces and sash windows affording splendid views across the gardens and beyond with access to fully insulated roof space. A traditional themed family bathroom with free standing roll top bath completes the accommodation.

The house has a hidden approach through former cartlodge with newly installed automated garage roller door with potential studio area above with power and light connected. A gravel driveway is situated at the east side of the house, providing extensive vehicle parking and turning space.

The gardens are a most unexpected and delightful feature situated to the south, east and north sides of the house. The gardens are stocked with mature trees, an abundance of flowering plants, flower beds and large limestone terrace creating a superb area to enjoy those alfresco moments. In all about 1/4 of an acre (s.t.s). Newly renovated red brick and flint wood shed.


Location
The house enjoys a unique secluded setting located on the southern edge of the town yet within a 10 minute walk to the historic centre. There are a number of scenic walks into and around the town, along the River Lark with a footpath leading directly to the Abbey gardens.

Visit the old side of the town to see the Cathedral in all its glory, the medieval quarter of the town and the Abbey Gardens itself, or browse the newer side of the town and the impressive Arc shopping area to discover its large assortment of shops, restaurants and entertainment centres.
