Leaper Stanbrook has just taken instructions to offer a truly magnificent five bedroom detached residence of exceptional character and architectural merit in the heart of Meads.
Ilex House is the former Vicarage to St Johns Church and was thoughtfully designed to be in keeping with the church with attractive knapped flint elevations beneath a slate roof.
The house has been the subject of complete redecoration and sympathetic modernisation at great expense within the last three years. The property has been completely re-roofed with Spanish slate, re-plumbed and re-wired. The wonderfully spacious and beautifully proportioned accommodation includes a magnificent 27` x 21` drawing room, 25` x 16` dining room and family room which could be used as a bedroom as it has an en-suite shower room. Of particular note is the superb 22` x 19` kitchen/breakfast room with hand crafted floor to ceiling units, integrated appliances and a central island with marble work surfaces, decorative panelling and mood lighting.
The first floor provides five bedrooms and three refitted bath/shower rooms all appointed to the highest possible standard with a blend of period and contemporary styles. Ilex House is set well back from the road with sizeable gardens to the front, side and rear, the latter enjoying a southerly aspect. Both the house and gardens enjoy considerable seclusion. Price is £1,250,000. For details call Leaper Stanbrook on 01323 416716.
