An excellent example of a late Edwardian Tudor style detached family home vastly improved by the current owners set on a generous plot with countryside views on the edge of the village of Crawford. The property retains many detailed original features including dark oak panelling and beautiful pattern leaded windows with stone mullions. Built by Rev David Watson, a former missionary in Palestine it contains several original features that clearly point to a well-travelled ecclesiastic with a penchant for Tudor architect, oak panel walls, corner fireplaces, oak beam ceilings and an over mantle above the fireplace in the lounge which displays the inscription “east west homes best”. While it is easy to see the connection with these and other original features such as stain glass windows depicting flowers notably the English rose. The house has two pieces of artwork which, sadly, have no provenance.
This family home has generously proportioned accommodation over two floors comprising on the ground floor a stunning dining hall with corner fireplace, stained glass window with stone mullions and dark oak panelling. Adjacent to the dining hall is a comfortable lounge with triple glazed bay window and detailed open fireplace along with door to the family room/kitchen. The kitchen has been refitted recently by the current owners and provides a wide range of base and wall storage units with matching worktops and tiled splashbacks, stainless steel 1 ½ bowl inset sink and appliances including range style cooker, integral fridge and freezer. The sitting area has a large stone fireplace & hearth housing a wood burning stove. Also, on the ground floor is a study, large walk in storage cupboard / pantry, entrance hallway / cloaks, a separate WC and a utility room with range of base and wall storage units, stainless steel inset sink and further appliance space. The rear entrance has doors and windows to each side of the entrance hallway.
Upstairs there are three double bedrooms and a good sized, well-proportioned single bedroom. The modern bathroom has been recently refitted with white suite comprising WC vanity sink and panel bath with shower over and additional storage.
The property is complemented by generous gardens which provide ample off-street parking, lawn areas, deck area and a variety of mature shrubs and trees. From the gardens are beautiful country views.
