DESCRIPTION Wild Acre is a substantial detached property situated in an elevated position in private grounds. As well as providing copious amounts of accommodation, the property has extensive, mature, landscaped gardens which include a parcel of land with planning permission for a 4 bedroom detached property. Properties of this calibre are rarely available on the open market.

The property is entered from the front via a Upvc door into a small vestibule with parquet flooring and a glazed door which leads into the main hallway. This provides access to the main ground floor reception rooms and has a walk in storage cupboard, under stair storage cupboard and ground floor WC. Situated to the front of the property, and commanding stunning views across the lawned gardens, is a spacious, bright and sunny lounge with feature fireplace with black marble hearth, windows to 3 elevations and patio doors leading out to a paved patio area. Also situated to the front and to the left of the hallway is a large, but cosy, sitting room which also looks out over the gardens. A window from this room also looks into a very useful room which is accessed through an external door to the front and which could lend itself to a variety of uses. Across the hallway and to the rear of the house is a good sized dining room, amply large enough to entertain in and which has an open fire set in a stone surround with oak mantle and a large window overlooking the rear gardens. From the dining room a door leads into a breakfasting kitchen. This is again another bright and spacious room with a comprehensive range of oak base and wall units having contrasting worktops and incorporating an inset halogen hob with extractor hood, eye level double oven, and serving hatch into the sitting room. A sliding door at the far end of the room leads into small extension of the kitchen which is also fitted with units to match and has space for refrigerator and two floor to ceiling storage cupboards, one shelved and one housing the water tank. From here a door leads into a rear lobby with composite door to the rear driveway and cupboard housing the gas central heating boiler. The lobby also provides access to a utility room which is fitted with base units housing a sink unit and has plumbing for an automatic washing machine, built in storage cupboard and door leading into the double garage.

To the first floor there are two landings, 5 double bedrooms with ensuite to the master bedroom and family bathroom. All bedrooms have built in wardrobes and commanding views across the lawned gardens. Bedroom 2 has a vanity unit and dressing table and bedroom 5 also has a dressing table. The master bedroom is an extremely spacious room and has a range of built in robes with bedside cabinets, dressing table and seating area. The modern ensuite is fitted with suite comprising a double walk in shower cubicle with granite seat and mains fed shower, hand basin set into a vanity unit with granite top and matching dresser, WC, fully tiled ceramic walls and pvc panelled ceiling with spotlights. The family bathroom is fitted with a three piece suite comprising a panelled bath with mains fed shower over, pedestal wash basin, WC, tiled splash backs, shaving point and airing cupboard.

EXTERNAL The property is accessed via a sweeping horseshoe s driveway which passes through extensive manicured lawns bordered by mature trees and shrubs. The driveway leads to a parking area large enough to accommodate several vehicles and also to a larger than average double garage which has two electric up and over doors, power, lighting and eaves storage.

A door from the front driveway leads into an annexed storage room which has window to the front, Pvc panelled ceiling and loft access. The potential use for this room is vast.

Included in the gardens there is a development plot of approximately 1.4 acres which has planning permission for a two storey, 4 bedroomed detached dwelling.
