The house, known as "Oakdene" is set well back from Orchard Road, behind a pair of iron gates leading onto a driveway with parking for a large number of cars. It has a frontage of 92 feet and the accommodation briefly comprises; entrance lobby, a large square reception hall with cloakroom off, dining room with reproduction fireplace, study/sitting room, main living room with French windows on to a substantial rear terrace. The kitchen is open plan with a large conservatory which opens out on to the rear garden, and the current owners obtained planning permission in 2017 (now lapsed) to replace the conservatory and create a kitchen/family room, for which plans are available to view, there is also a utility on the ground floor.
The first floor is approached via a staircase from the hall and leads to a landing, off which is a huge master bedroom suite of dressing room, en-suite bathroom and large bedroom which has views over the gardens and woodland, at the opposite end of the landing is a guest suite with en-suite shower, and three further bedrooms and a bathroom (the fifth bedroom is currently used as a dressing room).
Oakdene enjoys a wonderful location set within two thirds of an acre with an East/West aspect, backing onto the house is a substantial paved terrace with stone balustrade, it provides a great area for outdoor entertaining and to one end has a detached studio/office with en suite shower, basin, and WC. A series of paved steps from the terrace lead down to the main lawn and then into an area of light woodland. The lawn extends to one side of the house to a wooden gate that opens out onto the front garden and driveway.
An attached double garage with two up and over doors provides additional parking and storage.
