DESCRIPTION Sydenham House is a substantial character property originally a medieval farmhouse dating back to the 15th century but then altered internally in the early 19th century. The house has a fascinating history, thought to have been purchased together with the adjoining property by Sir Francis Drake in 1585 or thereabouts, for his wife Elizabeth Sydenham, hence the name and the fact that there are several other local connections with the Sydenham family. Despite being altered and modernised over the centuries, this lovely property retains many interesting period features and has delightful views of the parish church. The house now offers comfortable spacious accommodation and would make a wonderful family home in an extremely convenient location. It benefits from a private walled garden with a sheltered sun patio, well-stocked borders and shrubs. ACCOMMODATION The house contains a number of period features, including high ceilings, sash windows, period fireplaces, panelled doors, ornate cornicing and wooden floors. The particularly generous reception space includes a welcoming entrance hall with staircase, a formal dining room and a beautifully proportioned drawing room. The kitchen/breakfast room is a good size with a dresser and a Rayburn. There is also a useful utility room and a cloakroom Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, a single bedroom and the family bathroom. An interesting feature is the 'priest hole'. Many great houses had a priest hole built so that the presence of a priest could be concealed when searches were made of the building. OUTSIDE To the rear of the property is a very pretty and extremely private sun drenched walled garden with a seating area made from natural cobblestones. There are many mature plants with well-stocked borders and shrubs. Views of the church are enjoyed from the garden. VIEWING Strictly by appointment with the agents please.
