Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
Substantial detached five bedroom extended period property to the centre of a good village, with lovely views over the surrounding countryside.

The property is all about its position. It sits above Powerstock village facing in a Southerly direction, taking in some wonderful views over the church and surrounding countryside. The house itself is believed to have been built at the turn of the 20th Century and was substantially extended in 1989, creating a substantial home with extensive accommodation designed to take full advantage of the views from many of the principal rooms.

The original part of the house is conventionally arranged around a classic Victorian hallway with an attractive original tiled floor and a fine spindle staircase leading up to the first floor. To one side of the hallway there is a sitting room with an attractive bay window to one end, a sitting area to the centre focused on a fireplace equipped with a wood burning stove. To the other side of the hallway there is a dining room with both sitting room and dining room taking in the best of the views. Behind the old part of the house there is a large L-shaped kitchen with a kitchen area to one side, an eating area to the centre and a sitting area to the other end. The kitchen area focuses around an oil fired Aga but is supplemented by a bottled gas hob and electric oven. It has comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with an integrated fridge and freezer and a dishwasher. To the centre there is space for an everyday dining table beyond which there is a sitting area which has views out to the countryside beyond the village to the West. The kitchen is laid to attractive yet practical ceramic tile. Beyond the kitchen there is a useful utility area which in turn flows through to a dog/boots/coat hanging room. From the door and bedroom steps lead up to a garage that is currently equipped as a workshop with double opening doors to one end and an engineer's pit to the other. From the hallway, stairs lead down to a basement room that makes a useful additional reception room or study. Upstairs there are five good bedrooms served by two family shower rooms, with the two front bedrooms having built in wardrobes and three of the bedrooms having wash handbasins. The property is in good decorative order throughout, has uPVC double glazing, oil fired central heating and a private water supply.

On the lane side of the property there is off-street parking to one side of the house that could be enlarged if so required whilst to the other side of the property there is further parking in front of the garage. The gardens stretch out on the South and West side to the rear, with a terrace immediately adjacent to the back of the house that provides a good entertaining area during the Summer months looking out over the garden and village below. The formal garden lies below the terrace and is for the most part laid to lawn punctuated by mature herbaceous, shrub and tree planting while to the right hand side is a well- tended vegetable plot. On the lane side of the house there are two timber log stores and a useful garden shed, while by the vegetable plot there is a greenhouse.


Mains electricity and drainage are connected, private water supply. Oil fired central heating.
