The Old Pound
The Old Pound is set in a lovely location at Eldersfield, providing the much sought after escape to the country. The property is believed to date from the early 19th century, formerly agricultural buildings but now providing a versatile home within a beautiful garden setting.
Converted in 1987 and built of local Lias stone, under a slate and tiled roof with stone and weatherboard cladding. The Old Pound has been significantly improved in recent years to provide a character home which is finished to an extremely high standard throughout, and now offers a spacious, immaculately presented home with many character features.
A welcoming entrance door surrounded with colourful climbing roses and wisteria leads to a delightful garden room which instantly gives a sense of light and space, linking the master bedroom to the living rooms. The glass fronted garden room opens to a paved courtyard area and the garden beyond.
The well-appointed open-plan bespoke kitchen features an Everhot electric range, beautiful fitted kitchen units and granite work surfaces.
The kitchen opens to a vaulted, generous sitting room with lime-washed oak floor, and a feature fireplace with brickwork surround, wood mantle and wood-burning stove. The room is complemented by a lovely gothic arched window opening to the kitchen area.
A spacious, light and airy master bedroom is accessed from the garden room and has exposed beams, high ceilings and lovely garden views. A wonderful 'secret' en-suite shower room is hidden behind built in wardrobes, discreetly separating the en-suite from the bedroom. Two further double bedrooms and bathrooms are all finished to an equally high standard. All bathrooms and the garden room have electric underfloor heating.
A link with access to the courtyard area provides a useful office space and connects to bedroom 2.
The property is approached via an electric gate through to a gravelled drive way, providing ample parking, a large wildlife pond and gentle waterfall. The driveway leads to the land and stable block at the rear of the property.
To the front of the property is a well maintained brick courtyard, gravelled and grass areas adding aesthetic appeal and much charm to this home.
The secluded rear courtyard terrace opens to views across the wildlife pond and rear garden and is adorned with ornamental hedging, large decorative planters and is ideal for alfresco entertaining.
To the far end of the property is a wooden stable block with large storage room and concrete flooring, electric and water are connected. This building is currently used to store garden equipment yet has the potential for alternative use as an office or ancillary accommodation (subject to PP).
The large lawned area, vegetable plot and immaculate gardens are complemented by broad leaf trees, mature shrubs and herbaceous borders all of which are securely bounded by fences and hedging.
Mains electricity & water, private drainage (treatment plant), LPG central heating.
