Tilton House is an immaculate, substantial family home, built only 14 years ago by Merriman builders. The current owner has cared for the property so well, you would be hard set to age it as more than a few years old.
Set back nicely from the road, in about 2 acres of land, with double stable, double garage and annex above, it provides the perfect family home that enjoys some outstanding views.
Shielded from the road by a hawthorne hedge and set back nicely by it’s horseshoe driveway, allowing access on one side to the stables and ample parking for cars and horse trailers alike, and on the other side to a separate block paved driveway leading to the main house and detached double garage, with annex above it provides privacy and curb appeal in equal amounts.
The house is approached via large brick-built storm porch which leads into the impressive hallway with its wood effect floor and view of the galleried landing. The hallway cleverly connects all areas of the ground floor, stepping down to the live-in family kitchen and formal dining room.
The kitchen is expansive, with its natural stone floor and is well fitted with country style, cream, shaker wall and base units and a black pitted granite worktop. There is an integrated Bosch dishwasher, dual sink, Rangemaster cooker and an American fridge freezer.
The kitchen leads directly into a green oak and glass breakfast and relaxing area with patio doors out onto the garden. This room is a real sun trap and a focal point for the home. Off the kitchen is a well-equipped utility room with integrated Bosch washing machine and CDA tumble dryer and access out to the parking and garages.
At the front of the home, on the right-hand side is a spacious study with bow window to enjoy the comings and goings. Directly behind it you’ll find the large, yet comfy sitting room with stone surrounded, open fire and patio doors to the garden. Positioned perfectly between the kitchen and the sitting room is the formal dining room, which could easily be a playroom for those with younger families.
To the left of the hallway is the guest WC.
On the first floor you are greeted by the spacious and alluring galleried landing which not only connects all rooms but also provides a space for relaxing with a good book or for a small home office.
The master bedroom is a delight with its walk-in wardrobe and luxurious en suite bathroom with both a bath and separate shower cubicle, but what is the real treat, is the private balcony overlooking the paddock.
The guest bedroom has a wall of fitted wardrobes and drawer units and its own en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms, one with a full wall of wardrobes, currently used as a single, and a well-appointed family bathroom.
Garage and annexe
The property boasts an oak and brick double garage with annex above. Currently in situ is an extra-large bedroom ideal for sleeping and relaxing and a shower room. There is a further room which lends itself to creation into a good-sized kitchen, making the annexe self-contained.

To the left-hand side, you will find the pristine double stable and tack room. For those who are not into their horses, these rooms have electric and power and could be ideal for a home office, gym, or teenager pad.
