PROPERTY A charming unlisted period house with an abundance of character and superb gardens and grounds extending to 3.7 acres (STMS).
Broadway House is a delightful period home with later additions situated on the edge of the village of Wickham Skeith with a rural aspect to front and back. It offers superbly presented accommodation with an abundance of charm and character and the space has an excellent flow plus offers huge versatility. On the ground floor there is a spacious entrance hall that currently incorporates a useful study area. The property was previously used as a shop in its past and there is a delightful room with original internal window that the vendors currently use as a ground floor bedroom which works well as it is served by a shower room opposite. At the heart of the house is a dining room with inglenook fireplace and an inner lobby connects this room with the spacious sitting room. At the rear is an impressive garden room which forms a perfect place for entertaining and this connects with the 'L-shaped' kitchen/breakfast room. There is also a large utility room. On the first floor are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom, with the principal bedroom benefitting from an ensuite shower room.
Broadway House is approached from the road via a gravel driveway leading to parking for several cars and the double garage. There is a useful secondary drive along the lane servicing the paddocks and stables. The gardens and grounds are a delightful feature of the property having been lovingly landscaped by the current vendors and they have been cleverly divided into distinct areas including formal lawns with established well-stocked borders, an excellent kitchen garden and delightful re-wilding area with meandering paths. There is a useful utility area with a greenhouse and also to the rear of the garage is room that the vendors currently have as a home office. The remainder of the land which is edged by immaculate hedging is sectioned into paddocks, stables and a haybarn making it perfect for those with equestrian interests or even a smallholding.
