Rare opportunity to secure this truly impressive detached Victorian home. Tastefully combining period character throughout, with a contemporary and elegant finish for modern living.
Rich in period features, this family home retains fine cornicing, original wood-panelled doors, elegant fireplaces, etched glazing panels and a beautiful wrought-iron staircase. This hidden gem is tucked away at the end of a private driveway. Despite having a central location, the property is set within its own secluded and beautifully landscaped south-facing gardens. Dating back to 1890, Cairnbury House is situated in extensive grounds. Refurbished and upgraded in keeping with the original character, this substantial family home offers flexibility to suit modern-day living requirements. The house is fully double-glazed, with gas central heating throughout.
The property is approached from the driveway and parking area, into an entrance vestibule. The reception hall provides a real statement of grandeur, with the original staircase being flooded with natural light from the cupula. The public rooms are set just off the hallway, and both the drawing room and living room have panelled bay windows which overlook the beautifully tended garden. The elegant drawing room is impressive with a stunning marble fireplace, cornicing and a press cupboard. The welcoming living room has an elaborately carved oak fireplace as its centrepiece, picture rail and cornicing, with a further vestibule and dining room on either side. The breakfasting kitchen is generously proportioned, featuring a well-equipped country-style kitchen, tiled floor and all appliances are included in the sale. From the sunny kitchen, there is direct access into the garden to a well-positioned seating area from which you can enjoy a morning coffee.
A large utility room, adjacent to the kitchen, means that all practicalities are well catered for in this house. The rear hallway leads to a large pretty guest bedroom, from which an office and further store room are accessed. Opposite to the bedroom, is a beautifully refurbished bathroom furnished with a roll-top bath, WC and wash hand basin. The cellar is accessed from the rear hallway and provides excellent additional storage, particularly for essentials such as wine!
The beautiful staircase leads to the galleried upper landing. To one side, is the large master bedroom, equipped with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom (which contains a shower, WC, wash hand basin and an additional fitted wardrobe). There are a further two double bedrooms located off the galleried landing, with the upper hallway leading to the rear of the house. This area of the house hosts a spacious family bathroom with fitted vanity units, walk-in shower, bath, WC and wash hand basin, an additional WC and a sizeable linen room. A large L-shaped room, which in previous times has served numerous purposes including play room, family room, gym and art studio, is accessed from the rear hallway and leads into the fifth double bedroom, currently being used as an office.
Externally, this beautiful property really comes into its own. The south-facing and beautifully landscaped gardens are walled to two sides with hedging to the third, and at every turn has something to delight. There is a well-established productive fruit garden, and a vegetable garden to the rear which houses a large Gabriel Ash greenhouse and a number of raised beds, allowing produce to be grown for many months. A further seating and barbeque area allows one to enjoy the evening sunshine as well as views of the beautiful flower and shrub borders. A large shed is also set among the trees, providing additional storage. To the front of the property, there is a large tarmac yard which provides parking for numerous vehicles, access to the double garage and a useful potting shed.
Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate all this delightful, extensive property has to offer.
