A spacious, detached family house with excellent equestrian facilities, situated on a generous plot of approximately one acre, just off the village green in the sought after village of Throwley Forstal.
Beeches was built in 1978 by its current owners and has seen numerous improvements over the years, including the addition of a 28 ft x 18 ft sympathetically styled rear extension containing a superb indoor heated swimming pool.
The front door opens into an inner porch with parquet style Amtico flooring and a glazed door to a much larger, central entrance hallway with a coats cupboard and a large shower room.
There are two reception rooms either side of the entrance hall, a huge 25 ft sitting room with an exposed brick chimney breast with an open fire and a well proportioned dining room.
To the rear of the house is a modern and well equipped kitchen/breakfast room with lovely views over the paddock, fitted with an excellent range of contemporary wall and floor units, set around granite effect work surfaces and integrated appliances. From here, a double glazed door leads to a brick and double glazed conservatory with a tiled floor and access to both the front and rear gardens.
The ground floor is completed by a superb, brick built pool house under a slate tiled roof, which was added in 1989 and blends perfectly with the main house. This can be accessed from both the sitting room and the shower room, and has a 24 ft x 12 ft heated swimming pool and a triple aspect with lovely views over the paddock and double glazed French doors to the garden. The pool house is an excellent addition to the property however, due to its size and quality of construction, it could potentially be converted into further living space, such as an annexe, if so desired (subject to the necessary consent).
On the first floor, a large, galleried landing leads to four double bedrooms, each with built in wardrobes, and a large family bathroom. The master bedroom is a particularly good size with three built in double wardrobes and a well appointed en suite shower room.
Beeches sits within a generous plot of approximately one acre, with the majority of the land arranged as a large paddock with post and rail fencing to the rear of the property. To the front, there is a lawned front garden and a block paved driveway which provides parking for numerous vehicles and leads to a large double garage. This has an electric double door, power, lighting, water, access to the garden and access to the pool house.
The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn, with flower and shrub borders and an attractive patio area. Attached to the rear of the garage, there is a large timber outbuilding which houses the oil tank and provides plenty of storage.
The block paving continues to the side of the garage and leads to a metal five bar gate which opens into a block paved stable yard with a substantial stable block with a slate roof. This has two boxes, a hay store, a tack room and another store room and has power, lighting and water connected to it. From the stable yard, another metal five bar gate provides direct access to the paddock.
