– 4 Bed Detached House
DESCRIPTION Located within the charming village of Great Warley, Wellmead is tucked away beautifully at the centre of its c13 acre secluded and picturesque gardens, grounds and woodland.
Wellmead is believed to date back to pre 1900, once known as “The Well Mead Garden” forming part of the Warley Place Estate, home to accomplished botanist, gardener and horticulturalist Miss Ellen Willmott who created her famous rose garden within the grounds, as well as planting a wide variety of different species of trees, shrubs and plants from the continent.
The property itself once consisted of two separate cottages with cellars for loading and unloading produce. In 1959 the cottages were connected and the property extended to become one dwelling.
Set back 50 metres from Great Warley Street are a set of electronically operated gates on brick piers. Once through the gates, a driveway sweeps a further 180 metres across the grounds and around to the parking area in front of the house.
Entering via the front door leads into a hallway with ground floor cloakroom. A doorway opens through into the main living area which has incredible views across the grounds to the front and a large brick fireplace, wonderful for those winter evenings. To the left hand side of the property is a separate dining room and a useful store/study area. At the rear of the property is the fitted kitchen with integrated dishwasher, induction hob and double oven, as well as the utility room with back door, additional sink and space for appliances. A snug leads from the utility room with French doors opening onto the patio area, stairs that lead down to the extensive cellar and stairs going up to the first floor.
To the first floor are 4 bedrooms all of which provide fabulous views of the gardens and grounds. The bedrooms are serviced via a family bathroom and a separate shower room too. There is a hatch on the landing providing access into the loft and bell tower above.
Externally, there is a detached 3 vehicle garage and a modern outbuilding behind the garage, which could be the ideal place for a home office or gym, with its large downstairs living space and 2 further rooms to the first floor. Within the grounds, kids will be in their element, with so many areas to explore and play in, in addition to a purpose built tree house and a summer house too.
If you are in the market for a private and secluded property set within multiple acres of beautiful parkland and woodland, then please do get in touch with us at the earliest opportunity. Viewings are by appointment only.
Planning permission was granted in 2017 for a substantial 2 storey side extension. Although the planning permission has since expired, it may be of interest to those wishing to improve the size of the current dwelling in the future (subject to new planning permission). Previous plans are available upon request.
