This week’s featured property is Monks Ditch, in Cranham priced at £995,000.
Monks Ditch is a great example of Edwardian architecture and accordingly reflects the confident nature of buildings of that period, with high ceilings, well proportioned rooms and other appealing features.
A substantial property, of over 3,000 square feet, set in extensive grounds of about 1.5 acres, Monks Ditch would be a classic home from which to entertain and bring up a young family.
Set at the heart of a extensive wood, the house is approached by an unmarked lane which leads to a west facing clearing, where Monks Ditch is cocooned.
Now in need of investment to reflect the obvious potential, the accommodation in Monks Ditch currently comprises an outer porch, leading into an impressive entrance hall (at the heart of the house), which sets the tone for what follows.
Two impressive reception rooms linked by a west facing garden room, study, kitchen, breakfast room, pantry and cloakroom.
On the first floor are five double bedrooms, two with en-suite and a shower room.
The property has extensive outbuildings including a double garage and studio/gym, while the majority of the garden lies in front of it.
Gently sloping – rectangular in shape, this would be a fascinating project for the keen gardener, as in recent years nature it has been allowed to ‘wild itself’ but it used to be a significant feature of the property.
This property would appeal to a family that values privacy, whilst remaining within easy reach of good schools and places of employment.
