An imposing and highly impressive period residence dating back to circa 1800, which is an elegant conversion of the original Smalewell Hall and retains the stunning original entrance hall and a wealth of period features to include traditional fireplaces, high ceilings with moulded cornicings, picture windows with intricate details and yet with many sympathetic additions by the current owner displaying a true cohesion of the old and the new to create a superb home of which only internal inspection will do justice.
Entrance is via the front vestibule into the splendid original hallway with solid Brazilian walnut flooring, an impressive staircase with spindled balustrade and walnut stair treads, half height wall panelling, and leading through into a bright dual aspect living room with deep moulded ceiling cornice and living flame gas fire reconditioned from the existing fireplace with ornate cast recess and decorative surround. The windows here, as throughout the property have been replaced with bespoke made to measure sash windows of high specification, retaining the character yet with the comfort of the modern. To the rear of the property, the kitchen enjoys the stunning views over the garden and beyond across the valley, fitted with a range of white shaker style units with solid oak counter tops, slate tiled flooring, exposed stonework, gas range cooker, integrated dishwasher and washing machine and French windows leading onto the rear terrace. Double doors from here lead back into a second reception room offering versatility to be used as a formal dining room or second sitting room with a dark oak fireplace commanding centre stage and stained oak flooring.
To the first floor, the turn staircase highlights the beautiful picture window looking out over the breath-taking views and to this level there are two well-proportioned double bedrooms, both presented to the highest standard with classic decorative themes and picturesque outlooks from every window. The bathroom boasts a freestanding cast iron claw foot bathtub with Italian mosaic tiled flooring, walk in shower with rainfall shower and overhead spotlighting and the marble wall tiles give a stylish yet elegant finishing touch. To the second floor is a third double bedroom having a Velux roof light, plenty of storage to the eaves and exposed beams maintain the period charm.
Externally, the property commands a truly wonderful elevated position with a well-placed two tier decked terrace offering the perfect place to take in the stunning far reaching views. The rest of the garden is mainly laid to lawn with well-tended borders, leading down to an inviting timber summerhouse, the perfect spot for hosting that summer barbecue. Smalewell Gardens itself is a private road and to the front of the property is a detached garage alongside an off street parking space. A real hidden gem of a property in a most desirable secluded enclave, viewing is simply a must!
