About the property.

Rivendell is a handsome Georgian property originally dating from 1780 with later additions in the 1980's and 2000's that blend tastefully with the original building and offers a characterful and vibrant home. This lovely property presents versatile accommodation, a pool complex with an indoor heated swimming pool, a large triple garage, electric gated driveway and sits on a plot of just under 1.3 acres.

The property is set in a wonderful position with fabulous views across the mature garden and to the countryside beyond.

About the inside.

Approached over a stone terrace, the front door opens into a spacious atrium/reception hall with an attractive terracotta tiled floor and cloak cupboards. To the right is a generous drawing room with painted 'A-frame' roof timbers, a 'Jetmaster' fire and two sets of large glass sliding doors that open out onto the terrace. To the left of the atrium is the 3rd bedroom / 3rd reception room with an Inglenook fireplace and open fire. The dining room has attractive 'Amtico' flooring and built-in bookcases. The kitchen/breakfast room is beautifully fitted with Wych Elm wall and floor cupboards complimented by granite work surfacing and slate flooring. Off the kitchen is a walk-through larder that opens to a generous utility room. Also on the ground floor is a large family bathroom with a shower and Jacuzzi bath.

An interesting curved hall with built-in bookcases leads to the superb pool complex, where there is a heated swimming pool that has a counter-current, a kitchenette with sink and fridge, a plant room, a store room and a wine cellar. Full height windows with condensation preventing louvres, along with sliding doors link the pool room to the garden and open directly onto the stone paved terrace.

On the first floor are two double bedrooms, both with built in wardrobes and a family bathroom.

About the outside.

Rivendell is approached through electric gates onto the driveway, where there is a generous amount of parking and turning space. The triple garage has three separate doors, two of them with remote opening. This useful building has electricity and a built-in generator for emergency power, as well as water from both internal and external taps.

The mature gardens are an absolute delight, with a beautifully landscaped front garden and rear terraced area with planting to give colour and texture throughout the seasons along with a pretty pond. The garden gently slopes away from the terrace with an extensive lawned area that is planted with a wonderful variety of mature trees and shrubs, levelling out towards the end to a beautiful tucked-away clearing surrounded by trees.
