Description

East Wing is a quite superb property, which has been in the same family’s ownership for 35 years. The house dates in part to the 18th Century with Victorian additions. Our clients originally purchased The Old Vicarage as one building and sub-divided the house into two parts. East Wing represents the larger portion of the house and also has the added benefit of an attached cottage, creating valuable ancillary accommodation.

Entering the house via the front door, you are greeted by an inner lobby with a delightful small stained glass window leading to a welcoming entrance hall. The hall has wide planked oak floor boards...

East Wing is a quite superb property, which has been in the same family’s ownership for 35 years. The house dates in part to the 18th Century with Victorian additions. Our clients originally purchased The Old Vicarage as one building and sub-divided the house into two parts. East Wing represents the larger portion of the house and also has the added benefit of an attached cottage, creating valuable ancillary accommodation.

Entering the house via the front door, you are greeted by an inner lobby with a delightful small stained glass window leading to a welcoming entrance hall. The hall has wide planked oak floor boards and the staircase takes you to the upper floors. In front of you, steps take you down to a sitting room, which our clients currently use as a showroom and studio. The triple windows have original shutters and there is an attractive fireplace with pitch pine and mahogany topped cupboards to either side. Also off the hall is a doorway which takes you down to a spacious cellar providing good storage, split into three main areas, one for wine and the other for two workshops.

The hallway leads onto the dining room, which faces the front of the house. There are charming fitted shelves and cupboards and, again, period shutters either side of the sash windows. The hall then leads onto the drawing room, which is the centre piece of the house; a superb room with a bay window to one end and French doors out to the gardens with wonderful views beyond. There is an attractive marble corbel fireplace, fine cornicing and a central rose.

Down four steps, you reach the spacious kitchen/breakfast room. There are ample fitted farmhouse style units, an Aga and plumbing for a dishwasher. Above and to the right of the Aga is the most wonderful stone carved panel, which is originally from Wellow’s famous wool Church after 19th Century alterations. The room has wonderful French doors with bevelled glass windows to either side giving access to the terrace for summer dining and relaxing. A door leads through to a very useful utility room, to one end of which is a cloakroom, and a further door leads to the front driveway and the cottage.

First Floor

You are greeted by a substantial landing, which our clients currently use as a study. Off this first level you find bedroom 3 with fitted cupboards, a Georgian fireplace and views to the south over the gardens. Steps leads up to a master bedroom, facing south to the wonderful views across the valley. It has plenty of fitted storage and its own en suite bathroom with shower. Bedroom 2 also has a good range of fitted cupboards and to one side a door leads to a family bathroom with a wonderful small stained glass window. From here, steps lead up to a fourth bedroom, again with built-in storage.

The Cottage

Formally stables, the building provides excellent ancillary accommodation. On the ground floor is a fitted kitchen with electric oven and dishwasher and a sitting room with French doors to the garden and a Georgian period stone fireplace. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. Attached to one side is a very useful
store.

The Garden

To the front of the house are attractive stone pillars; one is gated and leads to the front door and the other is open to a good sized gravel driveway. A timber gate leads between the house and the cottage to a beautiful south facing stone terrace. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a wonderful array of plants. There is a central iron rose-clad archway leading down to the lower gardens. A majestic horse chestnut tree stands to one side and other trees include a walnut and yew. There are two charming outbuildings, which could provide space for a studio or for storage, both of which have attractive timber cladding and period timber doors. In general, the whole feel of the gardens and views are really rather special.
