THE PROPERTY

Tolleys Orchard is quite possibly one of the most uniquely designed and charmingly quirky properties in the area and, set in more than an acre of magical gardens with fantastic country and village views and a sunny, principally south-facing orientation, there is much more to offer than immediately meets the eye when passing. Built to an exacting specification circa 1986, and designed to fit comfortably into its surroundings whilst taking full advantage of natural light throughout, suggestions of Scandinavian design influence are everywhere, coupled with mellow stone-faced elevations more typical of an English village home.

Under the original ownership since new, the property has been maintained to a similarly high standard yet now offers scope for a new owner to update and adapt the versatile accommodation, presenting a perfect opportunity to create a highly individual home on the fringe of one of the area's most desirable villages.

Internally, the accommodation is incredibly versatile and is orientated to take full advantage of the lovely views and sunny aspect. Upon entering the property into either the spacious entrance hall at street level or the galleried atrium-style reception hall on the ground floor, it is immediately obvious that this is no ordinary home. Much of the accommodation can be found on the ground floor including two reception rooms (one benefitting from a woodburner), the kitchen, two bathrooms (one of which was recently upgraded and altered to a wet room), a cloakroom and three of the bedrooms including bedroom 5 which is currently appointed as a study. From the atrium, stairs rise to the galleried first floor landing which gives access to two further sizeable bedrooms and an additional bathroom. Storage is abundant throughout including a large cupboard in the lower entrance hall and excellent built-in wardrobes in most of the bedrooms.

OUTSIDE

The grounds at Tolleys Orchard are an undoubted joy. Totalling just under 1.2 acres with much of the principally south-facing garden arranged to the rear of the property, the plot offers a great sense of seclusion and provides multiple opportunities for spending time out of doors. The garden is primarily laid to lawn, stretching down to a charming stream at the far end and including an area of orchard, with several sun terraces and seating areas throughout. Set slightly apart from the property, there is a substantial detached outbuilding which is currently arranged as a garden room/studio with an adjoining garage /workshop which offers great potential for conversion to a home office or ancillary accommodation, subject to any necessary consents being achieved.

From the lane, the property is approached beneath an archway which links to house with the double garage which also benefits from an adjoining workshop with WC. A five-bar gate leads onto the sweeping driveway which leads around to the rear of the house, providing excellent parking for several vehicles.
