About this property
Grade II Listed, dating back to 1661, Combs Hall is a wonderful 2/3 bed detached property with wrap around gardens, off road parking and outbuilding (Former Brew House) which could be converted into an annex (STPP) The property has lapsed planning permission for the erection of a porch.
A picturesque property residing in a walled garden, approached via a driveway leading to ample parking spaces, Combs Hall is filled with an abundance of character. With a date stone, originating back to 1661 and registered with Historic England noting many features which includes the fireplace in the family kitchen and the central staircase with flat, vertically symmetrical, bulbous balusters with incised decoration leading to the landing. The bevelled windows and white door with metal studs all add to the kerb side appeal of this lovely property.
A former 3 bedroom property, altered to a 2 bed which includes a very large master bedroom and larger than average bathroom, the property could be modified to suit the needs of new owners.
The family kitchen is fitted with a range of cabinets which includes lighted display units and incorporates a Rangemaster electric oven, Bosch microwave and 5 ring gas hob, fridge freezer and plumbing for a washing machine. With beamed architecture and stunning open fireplace with working chimney, the room benefits from windows to both elevations. A door to the cellar head is reached via the family kitchen and sitting room.
The sitting room is a cosy setting with soft plush carpets and ceramic tiled hearth with inset gas fire. With textured plaster walls in keeping with the overall aesthetics the room draws in natural light through two elevations.
With a storage room to the ground floor, there could be scope, subject to the usual constraints to have a cloakroom with wash basin and w.c.
Rising to the first floor with the aforementioned balustrading either side of the staircase, you approach the landing with quaint detailing given the bespoke windows to the rear garden. There is drop down ladders to the attic which we have been advised has standing room and therefore further potential to develop, again STPP.
The largest bedroom has a bank of mirrored wardrobes and would comfortably support a super king bed, the second bedroom is a comfortable double and both have use of the house bathroom. With corner jacuzzi bath, double walk in shower with gold fitments, rope edged ceramic wash basin with pedestal and complimenting low level w.c and bidet. Enlarged by the current owners, using part of an original third bedroom, reconfiguration could be an option if so desired.
** The vendor had planning permission approved to have a porch (passage way) installed to connect the main house to the Brew House. With architectural drawings to convert the Brew House into a Kitchen, the planning permission is now lapsed but drawings are available to oversee on a viewing **
THE FORMER BREW HOUSE The outbuilding in the garden is truly amazing, the Vendors have advised they looked into the potential to either extend the main house to connect to the Brew House or convert the Brew House into a granny annex. Planning permission has not been applied for but with a wealth of character including fabulous beamed apex ceiling and original fireplace, we suggest due diligence must be conducted to explore the fabulous potential this offers new owners.
EXTERIOR With large wrap around gardens with well maintained lawn, the property sits in a conservation area with tree lined approach from Combs Road. With walled garden and evidence of historical architecture, the property has a large out building and additional garden store for lawn mower and tools.
With a network of paths and ability to create stations in which to sit and enjoy the attractive setting and move around the garden to enjoy the sunshine, the property sits behind wrought iron gates and has parking spaces for at least 4 cars.
