DESCRIPTION

Having been within the same family since 1951 and internally renovated to a high standard in 2016, this well-proportioned family home enjoys an accessible location within a rural setting.

The ground floor rooms flow effortlessly from one to the next, blending practicality and comfort. The two larger reception rooms, the living room and dining room, have bay windows over looking rolling countryside, and fireplace, whilst the smallest, third reception room is a cosy snug, with a fireplace and serving hatch to the dining room.

The impressive kitchen/ breakfast room has been hand crafted by Jacob Chalon kitchen designers with the charm of a farmhouse and conveniences of modern living. The olive units lay under black granite worktops, with Belfast sink, and Aga with lovely painted tiled back splash. The substantial central island has a built in Rangemaster cooker and hood and breakfast bar to one end. Off the kitchen, through an exposed brick arch is the breakfast room.

 

Also on the ground floor is the entrance hall with fireplace, behind which is a tucked away space used as a library but would make a quiet study. There are two WCs and a boot room.

Upstairs there are six bedrooms, four with en suites, and a family shower room serving the remaining rooms. Each room is unique with its own character and views over the surrounding gardens and countryside, the master with en suite bath, shower room and a vaulted ceiling.

Attached to the property is a utility room with ample space for laundry facilities and the boiler room.

OUTBUILDINGS

Attached to the house is a split level barn with electric and light, providing opportunity for further development, subject to consents, a store room, outside WC and a glazed potting shed.

The gravelled courtyard is a glorious sun trap bordered by four attached stone and brick stables currently used for storage but provide opportunity for development subject to consents.

Across the patio is the games room, fitted with kitchen units and sink as well as a wood burner.

OUTSIDE

Approached over a gravel drive way onto a large parking area, the gardens and grounds are a delightful mixture of mature woodland and lawns. Clearings for tree sheltered dining, patio areas, and walled gardens interspersed with flower beds enclosed by mature hedgerows.
