Victorian country house in Warmington with original features is on the market with Norton Rickett for £1.4m
Springfield House is a striking and highly attractive early-Victorian country house that sits on the southern edge of the popular village of Warmington.
The elegant accommodation has been sympathetically restored (including being re-roofed) and is arranged over two floors. It has retained its 19th century grace, proportions and period features, which include fireplaces (with log burners), window shutters, panelled doors and moulded cornices.
At the heart of the house is a fantastic family kitchen breakfast room with an electric Aga.
Upstairs there are five generous bedrooms and a family bathroom, while the principal bedroom has an en-suite. There is also a utility that could be converted to create a second en-suite.
Outside, a gated gravel driveway leads around in front of the house to a parking area and an open-fronted garage.
A young copper beech hedge hides a mature side garden which is mainly laid to lawn with a vegetable plot and enclosed to two sides by a stone wall. There is a secluded patio and a stone outbuilding.
The main gardens extend out in front of the property and are bounded by a low stone wall and mainly laid to lawn, interspersed into which are a variety of mature tree.
At the back of the garden is a small spinney carpeted in bluebells.
