DESCRIPTION

Haughton Gables provides an excellent opportunity to acquire a particularly desirable and attractively presented country property with a range of well laid out modern outbuildings, neat gardens, orchard paddock and amenity grazing land with a wildlife pool, in a beautiful unspoilt setting, offering extensive views.

The house was built circa 1950's, with a substantial single storey extension built in 2006. There may also be scope, subject to further investigation and planning consent, to extend over to the first floor for those seeking additional bedroom accommodation.

The layout, particularly to the ground floor, offers considerable versatility, with generous proportions. The accommodation also includes a blend of original charm, combined with contemporary living. The original features to the main reception hall are still evident with wood block flooring and exposed staircase and wall panelling. There are two wonderful reception rooms, flanking each side of the hall, both are naturally well lit and include a traditional fireplace to one and a log burner to the other. To the rear lies the open plan and substantial kitchen/breakfast room, which could alternatively be used as the main dining room if required. The kitchen is well equipped and includes a modern RANGE COOKER. The original kitchen is now open plan to this area and leads off to a useful pantry. From the breakfast area there are twin doors that then lead through to a good size CONSERVATORY. The conservatory also takes advantage of the beautiful views out over its own land and pond.

There is a rear reception hall, with a utility room, useful shower room and then a pump room links through to a modern two-storey annexe, which is currently used as an office suite and storage, but could alternatively offer scope for a dependent relative to use as an annexe, therapy/ hobby room. On the first floor there are three excellent size double bedrooms and a modern family bath/shower room.

The driveway has electric entrance gates, which then lead to the inner driveway and courtyard parking area. There are a selection of useful outbuildings, including a garage block with workshop and stores. In addition, there are further buildings including a lock-up machinery store, implement shed and further stores. Garden enthusiasts will see various areas around the house, including an attractive terrace and decking area, a neat kitchen garden, grassed orchard paddock and additional amenity land, which also incorporates a selection of native trees and a good size wildlife pond.

THE WHOLE EXTENDS TO ABOUT 2.56 ACRES.
