Sparks Oast House is an exceptionally attractive, detached, period country house of mixed ages (not Listed), offering spacious, well-planned family accommodation.
The elevations are brick with some weatherboarding above beneath a tiled roof. There is oil-fired central heating.
The main features of the property include:
• Entrance hall with quarry tiled floor, space for coats and hats, and door to the cloakroom with WC and wash basin. A part glazed panelled door leads to the inner hall with staircase to the first floor.
• The dining room is a nicely proportioned room with some exposed timbers and glazed double doors leading out to a lovely decked terrace with pergola above.
• Part glazed double doors lead from the dining room to the striking drawing room, a generous room situated in the larger than average roundel and featuring some exposed beams, herringbone wooden floor and brick chimney breast with bressummer beam above and a log burner.
• The kitchen/breakfast/family room is another beautifully proportioned area. The kitchen offers a wide range of painted wooden wall and base units with a high quality composite worktop and tiled flooring. There is an oil-fired Aga as well as a four-ring AEG gas hob and Neff oven. Double porcelain butler sink with mixer taps and Quooker tap.
• One step down from the kitchen leads to the breakfast/family room with tiled flooring and with a whole wall of bi-fold doors leading to the paved terrace and enjoying lovely views over the gardens and countryside beyond. There is a double sided log burner in a chimney breast that divides this room from the snug/television room, another charming area with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and wooden flooring, full height picture windows overlooking the ornamental pond and gardens beyond.
• The utility room is approached via the kitchen and offers additional storage space with a large butler sink with mixer taps and shower attachment, plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer, vaulted ceiling with exposed beams. This room in turn leads to the boot room with a door to the front of the house and with one step down to the scullery/store room which has a door to the rear of the house.
• On the first floor, the principal bedroom is an excellent double bedroom within the roundel and has been thoughtfully adapted to provide a dressing area, with the main room being a bright double aspect room with built-in storage cupboard and pine mantelpiece with cast iron and tiled fireplace with a slate hearth. The en suite shower room comprises a tiled and glazed shower cubicle, WC and wash basin, slate tiled floor, heated towel rail.
• Bedroom 2 features a good range of built-in wardrobes, as does bedroom 3, with bedroom 4 being situated to the front of the house.
• The family bathroom has a panelled bath with shower attachment and glazed shower screen, WC, pedestal wash basin, heated towel rail and tiled floor and walls, some exposed beams.
• The second floor landing gives access to a large loft space, ideal for storage, and a door to bedroom 5 which is situated in the top of the roundel and offers a double aspect through Velux windows over attractive grounds and neighbouring countryside.
To the front of the house is a large area of gravelled driveway/forecourt providing parking for numerous cars, detached double garage with two rooms behind, one of which is currently used as a gym.
The gardens and grounds form a delightful setting to Sparks Oast House, with the house being approached via a driveway shared with one neighbour. The grounds comprise delightful manicured gardens to the rear with a raised deck with pergola above, offering an ideal space for al fresco dining. Paved terrace with an ornamental pond. Further decked area to one corner with a summer house. Workshop with fitted work bench and a door to the log store.
Within the grounds is a detached studio/office with a kitchenette area and cloakroom. The stable block has two stables, tack room and further storage, beside which is the open-fronted pole barn. In addition, there is a paddock.
In all about 3 acres.
