Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
SummaryAn impressive detached, stone and slate family home with lots of character retaining the majority of its original features and lying in a mature elevated position. Ashfield provides very versatile five bedroom, three/four reception room accommodation and features period fireplaces, deep skirtings, heavily moulded architraves and ceilings and attractive stained glass windows. The property lies in mature gardens together with ample off-road parking. There is also a single detached garage.


The quality of the external finish, which includes construction in re-claimed sandstone with traditional timber double glazed sliding sash windows under reclaimed slate roof, has been continued throughout the interior with an exceptionally high standard of finish including slate floors, open fireplaces with wood burning stoves, and a hand build bespoke kitchen. However, the current owners did not miss the opportunity to install an environmentally friendly and economical ground source heat pump heating and hot water system, which delivers consistent steady heat by means of underfloor heating. On the ground floor the property includes key features such as a spacious and bright dining kitchen with additional utility room, a separate reception lounge and snug, along with home study, wc/cloak room. The principal rooms on the ground floor have glazed double doors opening out onto the garden. The first floor has a large principal bedroom suite with walk in wardrobe and an en suite with a stylish freestanding roll top bath and separate shower. There are a further four spacious double bedrooms and three bath or shower rooms, one of which is ensuite.

The property contains an annex above the garage which is accessed via its own staircase, this could easily serve as a bed and breakfast business, or with minimal additions could provide for a self-contained studio apartment and rental income or accommodate a live in relative. The house is also built with the opportunity to expand into the attic in mind and comes with a fully open attic space designed with services and access points ready for easy conversion should the requirement arise. This provides ample storage space as it stands but could provide for multiple additional bedrooms or maybe a self-contained apartment within the house should a conversion be undertaken(subject to required permissions).Externally the house is accessed via a gated private driveway with room to park several vehicles. The drive leads around the side of the main house through a farm gate to the stable yard containing three loose boxes and a tack room/feed store. The well fenced paddocks are located beyond the yard and can be accessed by a field gate to the rear. The property benefits from a large rear garden with a large area of decking with a hot tub and a patio area fitted with a substantial pergola providing an undercover area for entertaining around the built-in pizza oven and barbecue. The garden and land are surrounded by ancient mature broadleaf trees and woodland offering a great degree of privacy.
