Providence House is an extremely attractive country house tucked away in East Harptree. Originally built in the 1900’s, the property is approached from a long gravel driveway set within an extremely sought after location within the village.
The current owners have completely refurbished the property and improved it vastly. The accommodation now offers spacious light rooms with character features intertwined with a modern approach. Ideally suited for families, this property is completely unique and has many features including large open plan kitchen/diner with an Aga and bay window and three further reception rooms.
The accommodation on the ground floor briefly comprises an entrance porch leading through to the main hall with doors to the principal rooms benefitting from oak flooring, sitting room with ‘Jetmaster’ fire and bay window, garden room with bi-folding doors to the rear garden, kitchen/diner with the aforementioned Aga and bay window, play room, study, utility and WC. Upstairs are four well proportioned bedrooms with the master benefiting from an en-suite and a family bathroom.
The property benefits from pretty, mature gardens enclosed by hedging with a large lawned area in the middle. There is a pretty patio area accessed from both the kitchen and garden room where you can enjoy the sunny aspect. Walking down the garden a little is another patio area which is perfect for barbecues in the summer.
The gardens are a wonderful area for children to play and explore and give the house a true sense of seclusion.
