Elsewhere, the kitchen/breakfast room – the heart of the home – masterfully combines period charm and functionality. A classic four-oven oil-fired Aga and traditional Sheila maid evoke memories of another time, while free-standing units and an additional space fitted with units cater to contemporary needs. An adjacent utility room adds practicality, with a door leading to a cellar.
The master bedroom suite can be found on the first floor, accessed via an ornate hand-carved staircase. Bathed in natural light from dual-aspect windows, again with stain glass detailing, this room features custom-built wardrobes and a luxurious ensuite, complete with a shower, heated towel rail radiator, and a freestanding claw-foot bath. Double French doors open onto a balcony, offering incredible views of the garden.
Four additional bedrooms can be found on the same level – each one thoughtfully designed to accommodate a growing family or welcome guests in comfort. The family bathroom pays homage to the Victorian era, featuring an old-style bathtub.
