Oakwood House is a striking Victorian home, comprehensively updated by the present owners with accommodation laid out across three floors. The design and layout offer something quite unique and unlike anything else in the area. Approached through a gated driveway with parking for around 8 cars, this beautiful family home offers approximately 5000 sq ft including the detached triple garage.
Entry into the house is through a spacious and welcoming reception hall offering a host of period features such as ornate coving, large sash windows, high ceilings and exposed wooden floors. Bespoke fixtures and fittings adorn every wall with the hallway providing an antique peat burning stove as its centrepiece. There are four reception rooms downstairs with period features throughout such as tall bay windows, period style radiators and bespoke or antique wood burners and fireplaces. Completing the downstairs accommodation is a cloakroom, a utility room and the re-designed kitchen/breakfast/family room with access through to a boot room with planning in place to extend.
On the first floor there are six bedrooms, two bathrooms and one en-suite shower room. The generous principal bedroom takes centre stage with bespoke fixtures, lighting and wardrobes. Furthermore there is also an en-suite contemporary shower room. Stairs from the landing lead to the second floor and the last project our clients undertook. A wonderful seventh bedroom, snug or workplace has been created with fabulous views from the corner turret across farmland. There is also access to additional loft space currently used as a store room.
Externally the grounds are level and well screened. There are numerous seating areas including a contemporary gazebo and a newly paved terrace surrounding the rear of the house. There is also a garden shed and to the front a detached triple garage offering further potential should someone wish.
The picturesque hamlet of Horne has a public house and a church. Additional shopping and
