A contemporary architect designed 4 bedroom detached house with a 1.5 acre paddock & separate dwelling

Willow Bank is a substantial and highly contemporary four bedroom family home built in 2008, designed by local architect Harry Ridsdale. The property provides over 4000 square feet of accommodation and offers a range of modern features including self-cleaning glass, central vacuum system for easy cleaning, oil fired under floor heating and a heat recovery system throughout. A real feature of note is the large free standing cast iron wood burning stove in the main living area with stainless steel internal flue. The accommodation is extremely spacious and is set over 3 storeys with a wonderful mezzanine area with a vaulted ceiling on the second floor overlooking the lounge on the first floor.

The main living space is on the first floor which comprises of an open plan lounge/kitchen/dining room and conservatory to the rear with bi-fold doors, UPVC construction and a glass roof. The kitchen is sleek and modern and integrated with an eye level double over and grill, four ring ceramic hob and dishwasher. Off the kitchen is a walk-in larder with wall mounted shelving. The dining area has stairs rising to the mezzanine second floor and ample space for a large dining table and chairs. An open archway leads through to the lounge area which has floor to ceiling windows to take in the far reaching countryside views. Also on this floor is a study room and two double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom and the other with an en-suite shower room. There is also a cloakroom with low level wc and wash hand basin. On the second floor, the aforementioned mezzanine area provides a peaceful place to sit and take in the wonderful countryside views. This unique room has floor to ceiling and full width windows and an 'A' frame vaulted and beamed ceiling. From the landing, there is a study room/single bedroom and two further double bedrooms both with en-suite shower rooms and storage cupboards.

The ground floor is home to a porch and then a spacious entrance hall with a large Wessex disabled lift giving wheelchair access to the first floor landing. There is an unusually large utility room which could easily double as a 5th bedroom, currently home to the Grant oil fired boiler and plumbed in white goods. Another large storage cupboard sits off the entrance hall as does a cloakroom with low level wc and wash hand basin. A door opens into the integral double garage with electric roller doors and behind this is a huge workshop area with a multitude of uses with light and power supply.

Approached via a quiet country lane, a large graveled driveway leads directly to the integral double garage and to the UPVC glazed front door with matching side panels. The driveway provides ample parking for several vehicles and is bordered by a rendered and painted wall to one side with a tree lined bank to the other. This winds around the graveled driveway as it heads up and around the side of the property to the rear. Services to the property include mains electricity and drainage with private water supplied by a natural spring and an oil fired central heating system. There is the remainder of the NHBC certificate to 2019.
Immediately to the rear of the property is a patio area with raised planting and access to the conservatory. There is a good size lawn area ideal for a vegetable garden, shed and greenhouse and further areas uncultivated. On the far side of the gardens stands a large 33ft Polytunnel. To the rear of the garden is gated access to the 1.5 acre paddock which has secure fence boundaries and is in very good heart. On the other side of the property there is a separate driveway which leads to a large single storey workshop. This is of traditional cavity wall construction with UPVC double glazed windows and its own water, electricity and drainage arrangements. This represents a simple conversion into a three bedroom bungalow and as such, the current vendors have contacted the local planning department and we understand a planning application for full residential status would be looked upon favorably.

Overall, Willow Bank is a highly impressive, unique and substantial family home with generous and interesting grounds and the added bonus of a 1.5 acre paddock. The potential to convert and create a second property within the grounds is huge and Jackie Stanley's highly recommend viewing at the earliest convenience.
