Mountwood Road makes up part of the Mountwood Conservation Area, designated in 2005, an area which takes in just a couple of neighbouring roads: Burrell, Pine Walks along with Acrefield and Prospect Road. No. 9 sits about midway along the road, south side and has the very distinct advantage, not only of one of the typically long sweeping woodland gardens which abut gardens of Stanley Avenue homes, but also benefits by having one of the very widest garden plots. An extremely handsome house Pine Folly has been home to a family of seven for over thirty years or more; a very much appreciated home, as you may well get to understand....

We would refer you to our floor plan below to appreciate a sense of the convivial lay out of accommodation and hope that our slide show of photographs do two things: give justice to what is an absolutely gorgeous home, set within what is likely to ever have been one of the largest and most glorious of gardens we've had the privilege to sell in our 27 years history; secondly, inspire you to come and view - we just ask that you are in a position to buy once you've been smitten...

(For clarification you'll notice from our floor plan that both two of the bedrooms and the front reception room are not on the slide show of photographs).

Built in the 1920's this charming house has the main reception room and bedrooms facing out southward towards its spectacular garden view. What was presumably once two reception rooms is now one large room subdivided by living room and dining furniture. A second separate reception room sits to the front of the house, with all three areas having fireplaces, all with garden views too and with the front room having as private a front garden outlook as that from the rear of the house.

The hall, with its oak flooring and off which these room lead, has cloakroom facilities and access to to the west side of the house to both kitchen and family breakfast and day room, also open plan to each other. Beyond the kitchen and neatly out of the way is a utility room and separate wc.

Most striking features of the ground floor, other than the overall pleasing design of architecture and welcoming ambience which for us was an instant draw on entrance; were: naturally the views, through any window, although especially through the bay to the living quarters and the 'French' door to the breakfast room; the grand old oak staircase, rising to half landing with front window view (see photo 23) and of course the family kitchen, space which spills into the breakfast or dining area and day room.

This of course is the hub of the house where family converge, in particular towards the Aga (An electric Aga, installed approx 10 years ago along with this hand crafted bespoke kitchen).

Features to look out for upstairs in our view are the half landing, the front garden view from there, the entire whole main landing with its traditional woodwork(see photos 5,10), the replicated bay to the master bedroom and unquestionably the balcony. (Photo 13).

There are five bedrooms, two bathrooms and they're magnificent. Three are generous double bedrooms, these are the three south facing rooms; the main bedroom, as we've suggested, being an especially attractive room. Both this and adjoining bedroom have access out to the balcony. Bedrooms four and five are into today's house building terms probably considered 'double size' too; we'll call them generous 'singles' - bedroom four is a pretty 'corner bedroom with two windows. These bedrooms are serviced by two smart bathrooms.

Up again to bedroom six; another double room with more than adequate head height. Along a short landing is the 'box' room; ready perhaps for conversion to home study or shower room?


The comment regarding this garden plot's extra width comes from the fact that, at one point in the past, an extra building plot was anticipated between Nos. 9 and 7. That idea fell redundant (thank goodness) and left this home, so unfairly and enviably to the rest of us, with an extra large, extra private, extra peaceful, extra beautiful woodland garden.

And the frontage? Well dressed, neat and tidy, private from the road and practical with ample parking/turning in front of both house and the triple garage that stand at right angle to the house.

Expectations on the move
