6 Bedroom Detached House Sold
Ceylon House provides unusually light and well-proportioned living space for a house of its age.
The four semi-open plan reception rooms that occupy the centre of the house flow brilliantly and are perfect for entertaining, whilst the first-floor bedroom accommodation is extensive and includes an exceptional master suite with its own reception hall.
The property has escaped being listed but is awash with original and authentic features including exposed brickwork, modern mullion windows, studwork, ceiling beams, and some impressive wooden floors.
It is located on a quiet country road and within south facing grounds that have far-reaching rural views. These include a sizeable office above a cart lodge/garage.
The ground floor reception accommodation is versatile and extensive, with virtually all the rooms having at least two aspects and views over the garden. It orientates around a large reception hall and includes a double sitting room with a log burner, a playroom and a triple aspect family room which was created from a recent extension (and could become a larger kitchen if needed).
Other ground floor accommodation includes a kitchen/breakfast room (fully fitted and including an island and a red-brick fireplace) a WC, a shower room, a boot room and a utility room. A recently fitted lift provides access to the first floor.
Five double bedrooms occupy the first-floor and are arranged around a large, bright landing. The master suite is somewhat separated from the rest of the bedrooms and is notable for having its own reception area, a nursery (which could become a dressing room and is currently in use as a study) and a charming en-suite with a roll-top bath.
The guest suite was also built as part of the recent rear extension and includes an easy access wet room. There are three further double bedrooms, one of which has the property’s third en-suite.
OUTSIDE AND OUTBUILDINGS
Ceylon House sits in a plot that measures around 1.40 acres. Behind the property lies a vast lawn with some wonderful open views to its southern and eastern elevations, over agricultural land and towards woodland in the distance.
