An attractive late Victorian family house set in an established garden with meadow
Cedar House is an elegant and spacious family house towards the edge of the village set well back from the lane behind mature trees and the front lawn. It is approached through ’in and out’ wrought iron gates over a gravelled drive.
The front door, protected by a porch, opens to the main hall with a high ceiling and ornate cornice. To the right the study with its bay window, has book shelves on two sides and beyond an inner hall also lined with book shelves and a half glazed door opening to a conservatory.
The fine drawing room at the rear of the house overlooks the garden and again with a corniced ceiling, an open fireplace with polished wooden floor and double doors opening to the second conservatory. Also accessed from the hall is the dining room with a fireplace and bay window.
The kitchen/breakfast room is of generous scale, with its four door oil fired AGA and space for a table. This room also opens onto the tiled floored conservatory with its appealing decorative arched windows. There are back stairs and beyond is a utility room with plumbing for washing machine, etc.
Proceeding up the main staircase, at the half landing is a bath/shower room and a double bedroom with dual aspect view of the rear garden and a small bedroom which could double as a dressing room with fireplace and basin.
To the front of the house are two large double bedrooms. From Bedroom 4 a door leads through to further bedrooms and the back staircase.
The accommodation could be modernised
however it retains many period features
including framed doors, sash windows, cornices,
Victorian fireplaces and benefits from high
ceilings typical of the period.
The rear garden is mainly a level lawn with rose borders and overlooked by the flag stone terrace. It is enclosed in part on one side by a brick wall and it is flanked on the other by a mature avenue of lime trees. Accessed through a five bar gate the avenue leads past the enclosed kitchen garden with its caged areas to a meadow partly enclosed by mature hedging.
Off the front drive is a double garage and two single garages, an enclosed yard with a stable, tack room, wood store and other stores.
