Originally built circa 1860 as a 3 bedroom detached thatched cottage, Ebony was extended and completely refurbished by the current owners in 2015, and is presented in IMMACULATE DECORATIVE CONDITION. The house is connected to mains electricity, water and drainage, and has LPG central heating and a mixture of UPVC and timber double glazed windows.
Chalbury sits on high ground between the villages of Horton and Gaunts Common and is considered to be one of the most desirable rural locations in the area. ALL OF THE PROPERTY’S PRINCIPAL ROOMS HAVE IMPRESSIVE, FAR REACHING COUNTRY VIEWS.
Ebony has a detached double garage and off road parking for 4 vehicles.
The ground floor comprises a tiled entrance porch, a large entrance hall, a cloakroom (with coat cupboard,) a large sitting room (with Bath limestone fireplace and inset gas fire, and a pair of casement doors to the garden,) and a large study (overlooking the front garden) which could also be used as a bedroom or a small sitting room.
A particular feature of the ground floor is the magnificent kitchen/dining/living area which has bifold doors and double casement doors to the garden, giving a beautiful view over the adjacent farmland. The contemporary kitchen boasts Italian quartz work surfaces, a comprehensive range of Farrow & Ball painted oak cabinets (including curved panels,) a double larder cupboard (with quartz surfaces, oak drawers and shelves, racking and lighting,) Neff double ovens, a Neff 5-burner hob, an extractor unit, a full height larder fridge, a microwave and an integrated Bosch dishwasher. The ceramic tiled floor has under floor heating which extends into the laundry room.
The separate laundry room has a stainless steel sink, base unit and double floor-to-ceiling storage cupboards which match the kitchen units. There is also a washing machine, a tumble dryer, an integrated freezer and a stable door to outside.
From the hall, a straight staircase leads to a split level landing. The first floor has 3 large double bedrooms, a single bedroom, 2 en suite bathrooms and a family bath/shower room. The triple aspect master bedroom is worthy of particular note, having a stunning open view and a comprehensive range of built-in furniture.
Ebony benefits from a detached double garage with electric up-and-over door, personal door and excellent storage space, and the gravel double driveway provides space for 4 vehicles.
The front garden is enclosed by a brick wall with wrought iron railings and shrub beds. The rear garden is enclosed by post-and-rail fencing (to maximise the rural views) and includes a large, flat lawn interspersed with trees and shrubs and a semi-circular Tuscan limestone terrace across the width of the house. Behind the garage there is a 3m x 2.4m garden shed.
