The Street, Horton Kirby
Dating back to 1815, and boasting a unique combination of original character and contemporary style, is Croft House, a six bedroom, Grade II listed family home.
The property is sure to suit an array of buyers, including growing families, or those from London looking for an “escape to the country”.
Set on a large plot and across four floors including a basement, the property offers a wealth of versatility throughout.
Upon entry and to the ground floor, the property has a bright and spacious entrance hallway with high ceilings. To the left is the dining room, dual-aspect and thus offering heaps of natural light, as well as featuring a beautiful Carrara marble fireplace, wooden flooring, sash windows and original, sliding window-shutters. To the right is the drawing room, again dual aspect, with original Georgian marble fireplace, sash windows with shutters which fold into original architraves. French doors opening out to the walled garden.
To the rear-left of the ground floor is the dual aspect kitchen and breakfast room. Bright and generous in size, it features quartz worktops, Franke ceramic sink, an Aga, and two walk in storage cupboards. To the rear-right of the ground floor is the main sitting room. This features a log-burner with feature surround, and double doors out to an outside patio/seating area.
A utility room with downstairs WC and rear door to the garden, plus a door from the hallway to the basement and coal room, complete the accommodation on the ground floor. The basement is spacious, with ample room for storage, or the potential to be used as a home gym.
The garden is generously proportioned, but is a manageable size, largely laid-to-lawn with mature trees and benefiting from a South-Westerly orientation, meaning plenty of sunlight throughout the day – a fantastic space to entertain friends and family.
To the first floor, the property offers three spacious double bedrooms, all of which feature dual aspect windows and high ceilings, with the master also benefitting from built-in wardrobe/storage space, as well as far-reaching, uninterrupted views of fields to the rear. The fourth room on this floor is a smaller, single bedroom – which is currently utilised as a home office, by the existing owners.
The main, family bathroom completes the accommodation on this floor, featuring stunning exposed brickwork, beautiful free-standing roll-top bath, and walk-in “wet-room” shower area.
The top floor offers two further double bedrooms – a fantastic space for families with children who may wish to have their own floor. Alternatively, these rooms would make great dressing areas or guest bedrooms. Another shower room with original exposed wooden beams services these bedrooms, with walk-in shower, wash basin and WC.
The property offers a generous, wooden-gated driveway for ample, off-street parking – with the space large enough to accommodate at least 10 vehicles. Character features include original open fireplaces, sash windows, shutters, wooden flooring, original brass door handles and traditional cast iron rim locks, amongst more.
