Description

Tall Trees is a fine example of a detached period village house thought to date from the 18th Century, originally two thatched cottages enlarged by the present owners in the early 21st Century to provide a single dwelling of considerable charm and character. The property is built of painted brick under a cedar shingle roof with distinctive eyebrow dormers and tall chimney stacks with some of the elevations of the property being attractively clad with climbers such as Virginia creeper and roses. Many interesting architectural features of the two periods combine to form a lovely period family house with all the conveniences of modern day living. The property is discretely positioned on the edge of Kites Hardwick and is ideal for a young family, professional couple and those scaling down from a larger family home.

One of the most obvious benefits of the house once inside is the quality of workmanship and finish of the interior, now providing a most comfortable home which has been well planned to allow excellent accommodation ideal for entertaining, the whole presented with great decorative flair. The majority of the rooms enjoy views or aspects out over different parts of the gardens and the interior features include fine fireplaces, exposed timbers, quality joinery and a fine handmade kitchen. The arrangement and measurements of the rooms can be seen on the accompanying floorplans.

The living accommodation which is set out over two floors is accessed via a green oak porch with vaulted ceiling and fine solid oak studded and braced front door. There are four beautiful reception rooms with formal and informal character, most with fireplaces. The magnificent kitchen is also vaulted with exposed oak trusses, with hand painted units comprising cupboards and drawers, a large burgundy enamelled Everhot oven, polished granite work surfaces, feature log burning stove and slate flooring. Two sets of bifold doors link to the outside terrace. Also on the ground floor is a breakfast area off the main kitchen linking to a utility and WC. Set out over the first floor accessed from two separate staircases are five lovely bedrooms including a fully vaulted master bedroom with dressing cupboard, a stylish family bathroom and further shower room.

The property is approached through double timber electric gates into a sweeping block paved drive and gravel parking area leading to a most attractive two bay open fronted oak framed carport under a cedar shingle roof with distinctive clock tower. Adjacent to which is a most useful home office with veranda area to the front. Pathways lead to the entrance porch and side pedestrian gate as well as a service drive continuing to access the paddocks at the rear of the property.

The mature gardens and grounds are a special feature of the property and adjoin open countryside the south and west. The gardens are informal and have been planted in a style sympathetic to the architecture and setting with many areas for seating. The rear garden has a broad stone terrace ideal for outside summer dining, with pergola and the original garden well, beyond which is an impressive raised decked area with a heated dip pool and further space for outdoor entertaining. There is a natural duckpond with central nesting island, timber jetty and weeping willows to the margin.
