DESCRIPTION

Gables is a marvellous rural home which enjoys a stunning position on the edge of the Marshwood vale, surrounded by open countryside with far-reaching views. Dating back to the 1870s, this wonderful property offers spacious accommodation and generous grounds amounting to just under an acre, offering a sensational indoor/outdoor lifestyle alongside every convenience required by the busy modern family.

The accommodation has a sociable emphasis which is noticeable as you are welcomed into an expansive entrance hall, from which the cloakroom can be accessed. Moving from here into the sitting room to the right, which benefits from a Jetmaster fireplace, or the kitchen and dining room to the left, where there is a gas woodburner, the benefits of the property's elevated position come into focus; incredible views can be enjoyed from every rear-aspect window, particularly in the garden room which adjoins the sitting room and features glass bi folding doors. Great versatility is offered on the ground floor with two interlinking studies, tone of which enjoys an en suite bathroom, giving potential for use as a ground floor bedroom, should single storey living be required. Upstairs there are 4 generous double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate shower room.

Gables is surrounded by established, primarily level grounds which suggest multiple excuses for spending time out of doors including a mature lawn and an enclosed area with raised beds to the front, suggesting the opportunity to grow produce, as well as 2 charming stone outbuildings which offer potential for conversion to a home office, hobby space or annexe accommodation (STPP). The majority of the garden is arranged to the rear as an expansive lawn with a paved sun terrace, onto which doors from each of the reception rooms lead. Whilst privacy abounds throughout the entire garden, the Mediterranean-style walled courtyard, complete with hot tub, offers the last word in outdoor seclusion. From the public road, an electric gate opens to the driveway on which parking and turning space for a number of vehicles is available and there is also a large garage.
