Virginia House is a charming and characterful village property which benefits from a detached 2 bedroom annexe and extensive outbuildings.

The proportions expected from historic farmhouses can be seen throughout, making this a fantastic, flexible family home.


The main house offers two fantastic, sociable reception rooms, both with the benefit of wood burners, which provide between them the perfect environment for every occasion, alongside the domestic convenience offered by the contemporary kitchen and adjoining utility/boot room. The useful study could also lend itself to use as a hobby room or ground floor bedroom, and there is also a cloakroom on the ground floor. 3 bedrooms can be found on the first floor the landing including an expansive principal bedroom with a large ensuite bathroom and two further double bedrooms one of which enjoys an ensuite shower room and adjacent dressing room, which could be used as an interlinking 4th bedroom if desired. There is also an attractively fitted family bathroom.


Set slightly apart from the main house, the charming, self-contained annexe offers spacious accommodation including an open plan kitchen/living room and 2 bedrooms, one of which could also be used as a second reception room, and is ideal for holiday or long-term letting to generate an income or could also be used to accommodate semi-dependent family.


Virginia House benefits from a generous plot which has been landscaped and includes a large sun terrace to the front aspect, a well kept lawn and a patio with terraced flower beds to the rear. The property enjoys gated parking for a number of vehicles and an excellent range of outbuildings including a single garage and a number of attached stone barns which offer wonderful storage with scope for conversion (STRC) to fulfil a number of purposes such as extra ancillary accommodation, home office or gym.
