A charming character property lovingly transformed into a luxurious family home.
Now and again, a house comes onto the market that makes your heart skip a beat. 110 Tilehouse Green Lane has such an effect. Steeped in 400 years of history but with the added bonus of NOT being listed. Painstakingly restored from top to bottom, it has been transformed into a super modern family home and has everything you could wish for and more.
As soon as you pull into the sweeping drive, you’re drawn to the beauty of the house and its setting and cannot wait to see inside. From the moment you walk through the solid oak front door with its stud ironwork and commanding presence, you realise the inside is as breathtakingly beautiful as the outside. It’s the grand entrance we all aspire to. A solid oak floor, a grand fireplace, a sweeping staircase with galleried landing, a classic modern stair runner equipped with stair rods, walls full of character with oak beams and a cut glass chandelier to set it all off. This sets the tone for what lies ahead.
The house flows gracefully from this elegant hallway to every room throughout. Let’s start with the lounge with its oak beamed ceiling, solid parquet flooring and Inglenook fireplace where you can feel the warmth of the open fire and hear the crackle of the logs burning whilst you curl up on one of the sofas and enjoy a good book or a favourite film. On a summers day you can open up the French doors onto the garden and feel the summer breeze gently flow through the room that has windows to three sides allowing the light to flood in.
The heart of this fabulous home is difficult to choose. Mr Clarke thinks it’s his music room with the dark paneled walls and original stone fireplace whilst Mrs Clarke says it’s undoubtedly the kitchen diner with its exposed brick wall made from the original chimney, a super contrast to the sleek modern kitchen with the Corian work surfaces, glass splash back and bifold doors overlooking the fabulous garden.
There’s a cleverly planned family games room just off the kitchen, semi open plan, perfect for keeping your eyes on the little ones whilst cooking up lunch for friends and family.
