Holtwood - Holtwood - A well presented and extended 4 bedroom detached country house standing in an idyllic rural location, with GARDENS APPROACHING A QUARTER OF AN ACRE. Forest Corner was built in 1945, and has undergone a programme of refurbishment in recent years including an extension in 2004 and additional alterations in 2008. Standing in a quiet location within the hamlet of Holtwood, the property has outstanding views across adjacent countryside, and easy access to scenic walks.

The house is tastefully presented throughout and benefits from an airsource heat pump central heating system and solar panels which, together, qualify for a grant providing a quarterly income of £150 from the National Grid (until 2022.) There are UPVC double glazed windows, modern fitted bathrooms and kitchen, ample off road parking, and a detached double garage.

An entrance porch leads to a large reception hall (with wood block flooring and an under stairs recess,) and a cloakroom. Glazed double doors lead to the dual aspect sitting room which features a wood burning stove, exposed timber floorboards, and a bay window to the front.

There is a large kitchen/dining room which is fitted with a range of hand-painted units and has space and plumbing for a dishwasher, and space for a free standing cooker. The dining area has built in display and dresser units and a glazed door to the garden room which in turn has French doors to the rear garden and a delightful aspect over the adjacent countryside. A further door provides access to the utility room (with storage cupboards and space for tumble dryer and washing machine.

From the reception hall, a staircase with turned spindles leads to the galleried first floor landing. The dual aspect master bedroom has glazed double doors to a Juliet balcony, along with a walk-in dressing room and an en suite shower room. The second bedroom also enjoys a dual aspect and has a fitted vanity basin. Bedroom 3 has fitted wardrobes and a vanity basin, and the fourth bedroom is currently arranged as a study. There is a family bathroom and a separate WC.

Outside, the property is set well back from the main road and approached via a 5-bar farm gate, and a long gravelled driveway extends to the side of the property leading to a detached double garage (with pitched roof providing ample eaves storage space, electrically operated up-and-over door, lighting and power points.) The airsource heat pump is situated to the rear of the garage.

The gardens are well maintained. Immediately adjacent to the house there is a paved terrace with a pergola which has an established wisteria and grapevine. There is a gently sloping lawn with hedgerow boundaries, and a timber summerhouse. At the rear, there is a kitchen garden area with a greenhouse.
