Woodlands is a truly elegant detached red brick early Edwardian family home extending to 250sqm (2,700 sq. ft approx.). It is one of the few original period houses of the Mill Road. It has been well maintained over the years and retains many of its original period features. A modern extension has been added which perfectly compliments the original formal part of the house.
The porch, with Edwardian mosaic tiles, leads to an imposing front door which opens up to the entrance hallway. This impressive hallway has high ceilings, an original parquet floor and an open fireplace as well as period details including decorative cornicing and both a picture and dado rail. To the left of the hall is the drawing room and, to the right, the dining room. Interconnecting doors lead from the dining room to the more modern kitchen/family room.
Both the drawing room and dining room retain many period features including decorative cornicing, large pane sash windows and each feature a large bay window, high ceilings, open fireplaces and custom-built bookcases. Each reception room also overlooks the front garden, ensuring both are bright, airy spaces with views of the mature garden and trees. The dining room has French doors that lead to the modern, spacious kitchen/family room. When opened, this is an expansive space ideal for entertaining and where the current owners have enjoyed hosting many parties over the years.
To the back of the house is the open-plan kitchen and living space, with a door to the garden. The kitchen has hand painted cupboards, a pull-out larder cupboard and features a gas-fired Aga cooker. This large room also features a living/family area with fireplace with a gas fire and has great views of the garden. The kitchen/family room leads to a spacious back hall which would make an ideal study or home office. Off this hall is a sizeable utility room with built-in storage and a walk-in hot press. There is also a downstairs bathroom and access to an enclosed yard with stables which could be adapted for a variety of uses.
From the main hallway, a majestic staircase leads to the first-floor accommodation. There are five bedrooms, two en suite, with one en suite bedroom conveniently located on the ground floor. On the first floor there are four bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms mirror the main reception rooms in proportion and each feature a bay window with views of the garden and trees. The main bedroom also has built-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom on this floor.
Woodlands is a unique property, standing on 1.6 Hectares (3.954 Acres) and enjoys complete privacy. The house stands on circa 1 acre of private, secluded gardens. It is surrounded on two sides by the original stone wall (2.8m high) and on all sides by mature trees, including beach, lime, pine, hornbeam, and horse chestnut trees, many planted 100 years ago. The present owners planted additional beach trees 35 years ago which are now fully grown and add additional privacy.
There is an additional development opportunity for the circa 3-acre remaining land subject to planning permission which could easily be cordoned off from the main house and garden.
