An architect designed home crafted in 1959 by the acclaimed Lance Wright (well known and regarded in later life as the editor of the Architectural Review) and occupied by the same commissioning family until this current day. The property has been carefully planned around the fabulous position and aspect, with a southerly facing and well-proportioned garden to the rear. Further areas of garden can be found to the side of the house, connecting the garden to the parking area and garage.
Uniquely there is a studio room measuring 13’7” x 10’1” which is accessed from the garden offering wonderful ceiling height, double doors onto the garden and again, a glorious southerly aspect. The garden is a particular feature of the property enclosed partly by an attractive stone wall and partly by mature beech hedging. An elevated patio connects the sitting room, dining room and studio to the garden with the significant lawn sweeping away from the house and containing many established trees and shrubs. Gated access to the side of the property gives access to the driveway and garage. The garage which also has a pedestrian door to the rear measures approximately 18’4” x 9’2”. The total plot measures 0.23 acres.
