Pilgrim House is a beautifully presented and extended stone built detached property on the outskirts of the popular village of Oakhill, and boasts approximately four acres of land. The house features wonderful stone mullion windows, an oil fired Aga in the kitchen, and four double bedrooms all enjoying countryside views. The double garage has a large 23' studio room above, accessed from an external staircase, which is ideal for those working from home and has annexe potential (subject to necessary planning). The stable could also be converted subject to planning.
About the inside:
The generous entrance hall opens into the tastefully decorated dual aspect sitting room with a woodburning stove with stone surround, double glazed stone mullion windows with bespoke wooden shutters, dado level wood panelling and built in shelving. The light filled hall leads round to the family room to the front with wooden floors, a beautiful period open fireplace with tiled surround, and panelled walls concealing useful storage space. The generous sized cream fitted kitchen has an oil fired Aga, beech block island unit and granite worktops. Bi-fold doors open into a bright conservatory with views over the rear garden. A practical utility room with storage and separate cloakroom, easily accessed from the rear, complete the ground floor accommodation.
Upstairs the galleried landing leads to three good sized double bedrooms, each with stone mullion windows and views across open countryside, and the modern family shower room. The rear hallway forming part of the extension leads down to the 17'9" dual aspect principal bedroom with a wall of custom built wardrobes and a large en-suite with a bath and separate shower.
About the outside:
The long private driveway bordering the paddocks leads down to a generous paved courtyard with access to the double garage. An iron gate offers access to the rear of the property, with external steps bringing you up to the studio room above the garage. This room has been fully converted with six roof windows set into the vaulted ceiling and offers annexe potential.
A path leads to stone steps beside the conservatory up to the paved terrace, ideal for al fresco dining. This then leads to a lawned area bordered by stone walls and fencing. Steps lead up towards the top and access into the rear paddock.
The property has approximately 4 acres of land divided into two paddocks. Access is through a five bar gate from the driveway, or through a pedestrian gate from the garden and is bordered by mature trees and hedgerows. The outbuilding is currently divided into two stables with two further storage barns and a woodstore, all with mains power and water connected, set within a concrete yard in one corner of the smaller paddock which, with the right planning, could be converted into a self contained annexe or holiday let.
