The Firs is an outstanding example of an elegant period house refurbished to the highest of standards creating a spacious and characterful home suitable for modern living. No expense has been spared in this comprehensive overhaul, with improvements such as electrics, plumbing and windows all renewed whilst character features such as beams, fireplaces and cast iron radiators have all been cleverly curated to successfully blend the old and the new.
Entering via a wide doorway, the entrance hall provides access to the majority of living accommodation and runs from the front to the back of the house. A door way leads to the sitting room, which provide a superb formal space to entertain and unwind alike. Also accessed via the entrance hall, the kitchen breakfast room has been refitted to provide an exquisite space which blends traditional shaker style painted units with oak block work surfaces and travertine flooring to create a flexible and open plan space suitable for modern day living. The family area leads off the kitchen breakfast room and offers an additional seating area with wood burner, and views over the garden. A recent addition, the exceptional orangery / garden room is a vast space with features such as a vaulted ceiling and brick fireplace with wood burner. On the opposite side of the entrance hallway, the utility provides good ancillary accommodation as well as access to the guest WC. A set of stairs descend from the entrance hall down to the cellar.
A wide staircase rises to the first floor bedroom accommodation, whereby three large double bedrooms and the family bathroom are accessed off the bright landing area. One of the front facing bedrooms benefits from a contemporary ensuite, whilst the family bathroom has been refitted to exacting standards and offers both a bath and separate shower. A further staircase rises to the second floor accommodation. The master suite has been cleverly considered, with a bedroom, dressing and bathroom area. The space is predominantly open plan which creates a light and spacious suite. The ensuite area offers quality fittings including his and hers sinks, roll top bath and wet room style shower enclosure, whilst the dressing area has been racked out to provide superb storage.
