Claverham Road, Claverham - superb 4 bedroom family home with spectacular rear garden

Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
Coming to the market for the first time in 18 years, Havard House has been the subject of a regular programme of enhancement and extension, creating a substantial family home of great character and style, with superb rear gardens.

The property is set back off Claverham Road, with ample gravelled driveway parking to the front, with space behind the wooden fence to park a caravan or camper van, if required, in addition to the single garage beyond.

The free-flowing ground floor accommodation is unexpectedly spacious, characterised by attractive ceiling cornices, picture rails and exposed wooden floors. Some wooden internal doors with stained glass panels, along with the replacement double glazed Edwardian-style windows give a sense of the history of the house.

Overlooking the front through windows giving a nod to the history of the house, the spacious sitting room includes a wood burner with a tiled hearth and built-in shelves to either side, a polished wooden floor and attractive cornice work.

Also to the front of the house is a second reception currently used as an office for home working but could be a family room/snug.

The highlight of the accommodation is the spacious kitchen/sitting/dining room to the rear of the property, with a polished wooden floor giving a wonderful sense of flow to the generous space. The kitchen is fitted with a good range of wall and base units with space for a dishwasher, fridge/freezer and a gas cooker with overhead extractor.

The sitting area accommodates a large sofa with glazed wooden storage cupboards either side of the unused fireplace, that could perhaps be fitted with a wood burner if required, and there is space for a piano. Beyond is the large, airy dining area with a roof lantern and bi-fold doors opening directly onto the wide dining terrace and garden beyond. This space feels very contemporary and accommodates a large dining table, ideal for entertaining and family meals. Off the dining area there is a good sized utility/boot room with direct garden access and a large shower room, each room feels very light and airy, with overhead Velux windows.

The bedrooms are arranged around a galleried landing, with 3 doubles and a large single bedroom, plus a useful storage room currently used as a dressing room. The smart family bathroom incorporates a bath with screened shower over and a feature window that, like the 2 bedrooms situated to the rear, gives a glimpse of the wonderful views over surrounding countryside.

Outside - the outdoor space is another key highlight of Havard House and should be seen to be fully appreciated, with the apparently never-ending garden providing scope for the keenest gardener, and a great space for children to play. The single garage to the left of the property is situated behind wooden driveway gates, with space to discreetly park a caravan or mobile home if required. The garage has an up and over door with some overhead rafter storage, and a side door opens into a separate space that could be used as a workshop/hobbies room. The garden immediately adjacent to the house is laid mainly to lawn, with some formal planting including attractive borders, shrubs and hedges along with a small pond. A large terrace with wooden pergola provides an outdoor dining area and paths and stepping stones lead to the next part of the garden, where there is a large pond and a built-in BBQ area, plus a useful garden tap. Further on, around the corner, is a large garden area previously used a very productive kitchen garden, with another outside tap, and wonderful views over the adjacent field.

Beyond this, a curved beech hedge encloses the final part of the garden, with a large summerhouse at the end which could provide a wonderful space to work from home, or perhaps a children's games room. Bordered by established trees, there is a real sense of natural space that you might not expect from the front of the house.
