The Pines is a truly impressive 5 bedroom property, sat in an elevated position at the top of a private country lane, all set within approximately three quarters of an acre of beautiful landscaped gardens. This one of a kind property really must be seen in order to allow you to fully appreciate the versatile, spacious accommodation on offer. Positioned at the top of this discrete lane, just on the edge of Duddington Village, you sweep into the large gravelled driveway and are immediately struck by both the scope of the grounds ahead and the grandiose nature given by the raised elevation of the house itself.
The fully landscaped South facing gardens wrap themselves right around the property with extensive lawned areas, a raised veranda with stone balustrade, mature well stocked borders with a variety of shrubs, trees and bedding plants. Nestled to one side there is also a large patio area, incorporating a good sized summer house, ideally located to enjoy views across the gardens and beyond. Framing the house itself is the central gravelled area offering extensive off street parking leading to the double garage and the lower ground floor entrance.
The main formal entrance is accessed at the top of a set of stone steps gently spiralling up from the driveway below. Immediately in front of the main doorway the veranda affords the ideal opportunity to enjoy the vista offered by the raised elevation, with the local church spire drawing the eye to the west. Entering the house itself you step into a central hallway with rooms extending off to both sides and can readily see how generous and versatile the accommodation truly is, extending 3,750 sq ft, (excluding Double Garage & Garden Store Room) with the multitude of reception rooms and kitchen, utility, bedrooms and hobbies/games room. This large room would make an ideal cinema or gym depending on the requirements of a prospective buyer.
Well presented throughout the property layout being is highly versatile and would lend itself to almost any requirements.
