Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
This property is believed to have been built in 1948 and was subsequently extended and reorganised to create a beautifully presented stylish house.

This house is all about its position and configuration. The property sits to the south end of Melplash village with no near neighbours in a position that offers far reaching views from both the house and the land to the south and west over the local countryside.

The present owners have reconfigured the house specifically to create space and flow between all the principal rooms making it an exceptionally comfortable house to live in.

The property centres around a spacious hall on the ground floor and an equally light and airy landing on the first floor. The sitting room has a fireplace as its centrepiece and focal point with patio doors into the gardens. The kitchen/dining room has a dining area with another set of patio doors into the garden and a kitchen that is equipped with a comprehensive range of units and cupboards with granite work surfaces over.

The kitchen has integral appliances that include a two oven Rayburn that supplements the hot water, a hob with two induction rings with an LPG gas ring to one side, an electric double oven, fridge and a dishwasher. The dining area is laid to carpet while the kitchen area is laid to ceramic tile. Behind the kitchen there is a utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and the second sink which leads through to a good dog/boot room also laid to ceramic tile.

To the end of the hallway is a study that has an ash wood floor and double doors onto the terrace leading to the swimming pool. Also off the hallway is a cloakroom and the door down to the basement which makes a useful storage area and currently houses a sauna.

Upstairs there is an elegant principal bedroom suite which is also laid to an ash wood floor with a dressing area and an en-suite shower room

The second largest bedroom is also a suite with its own fully tiled en-suite shower room with the two remaining double bedrooms sharing a family bathroom.

Each of the bathrooms have been fitted out in some style further enhancing the polished feel of the house throughout. Each of the bedrooms has a view unique to it.

The property has oil fired central heating, a private water supply from a borehole and private drainage. In short this is a very polished house indeed.


The house is approached along a private drive with areas of paddock enclosed by post and rail fencing either side. Close to the house there is a substantial gravelled area providing parking and turning for a number of cars with a detached double garage equipped with light, power and up and over doors.

Formal gardens lie on two sides of the house with beautifully planted herbaceous and shrub borders enclosed by clipped hedges and punctuated by topiary and mature trees providing shape, colour and form throughout the year.

On the north side of the house is a block of three stables enclosed by post and rail fencing with a hard stand immediately outside, currently used as storage. Beyond is a paddock that is planted to a variety of mature trees with a grass track running parallel to the main drive running through.

On the south side of the house is an L shaped pool area with a substantial area of terrace. There is an attached pool house complete with changing rooms, WC and pump room. The pool area is enclosed by mature hedging making an ideal entertaining space during the summer months.

Behind the pool area there is a productive vegetable garden all enclosed by post and rail fencing. Beyond the vegetable gardens is a paddock with mown paths that lead up to a small area of woodland that adjoins open countryside and from which the best of the views can be enjoyed

The paddocks and grounds are enclosed by a mixture of post and wire and mature hedging. Within the paddock there is a field shelter to one corner. In all the grounds extend to about 3 acres.
