Reservoir House is a magnificent detached family home situated in a beautiful rural location with unobstructed views over the rolling local countryside.
Originally built c. 1890, the property provided living accommodation to the manager of the beautiful Victorian water pumping station nearby. Much enhanced in recent years, the entire property commands an impressive location on a significant plot. Reservoir House succeeds in retaining its original period charm and provides excellent accommodation for modern day family living.
The proportions are excellent and rooms of note include the light and airy kitchen/breakfast room. The good sized dining room lies adjacent. However, the impressive lounge is gorgeous and ideal for entertaining. It takes no imagination to see your friends and family enjoying this space and the access to the impressive gardens through the French doors.
The impressive master bedroom has a glorious view over the main garden and the countryside beyond. There are a further 3 bedrooms on this floor, 2 of which have an ensuite shower. The family bathroom and cupboard for the hot water cylinder are also situated on the first floor.
It is the large and versatile first-floor balcony which really needs to be seen to be believed. Whether you're enjoying a morning coffee or having an intimate get together with friends, the balcony provides one of the most amazing spaces that we've seen in some time.
The expansive gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a number of mature trees occupying the grounds. The garden provides an ideal area for al fresco dining.The Victorian water pumping station, rising cathedral like nearby, provides a truly unique backdrop for this beautiful house.
To the west of the house is a large detached double garage which provides considerable storage. Built with two floors accessed by purpose built staircase, the upper parts would lend themselves easily to additional living accommodation, playroom, gym, office or home cinema (Subject to obtaining the relevant permissions)
The driveway at the front provides ample parking.
