  • Bedrooms: 4
Handsome stone four-bedroom village house in the centre of a lovely village within a conservation area.

The property is believed to have been built in the 1970s on the site of a former farmyard and has warm local stone elevations under a tiled roof. The house was one of three properties built at the time and has during the current owners tenure undergone a rolling programme of renewal and improvement to create some well-planned, well balanced and well-presented accommodation. The works carried out have taken in the kitchen, the bathroom, the cloakroom, the double glazing and the central heating system.

Being in the style of a coach house there is slightly more accommodation on the first floor than there is on the ground with a carriage arch giving access to the rear of the property along with the double garage and parking. The property is entered from the carriage arch into an entrance hall with a cloakroom to one side. There are three principal living areas with a kitchen that leads through to a dining room that in turn gives way to a sitting room via a secondary seating area. The kitchen has been refurbished in a country cottage style with pine units and cupboards with granite worksurfaces over. To the centre of the kitchen there is space for an everyday dining table while to one side there is a gas fired Rayburn which provides a cooking facility, the hot water and heating. The dining room lies to the rear of the property with double doors to one side onto a terrace besides which there is a secondary seating area. The hall, the kitchen and the dining area are laid to an attractive ceramic tile providing an attractive yet practical flooring medium and these areas are equipped with electric underfloor heating to supplement the gas-fired heating. The sitting room centres around the fireplace equipped with a woodburning style gas fire stove.

Upstairs there are four good bedrooms. One is equipped with a comprehensive range of wardrobes across a complete wall, another is equipped as a study and three of the bedrooms have washing hand basins, whilst all the bedrooms are served by a family bathroom. The property is in excellent decorative order throughout.

The carriage arch gives way through wrought iron gates to an extensive area of drive laid to tarmac stretching along the back of the house giving access to the double garage that is equipped with two up and over doors, light and power. On the west side of the house there is a seating area and space for a greenhouse. The gardens are a particular feature of the property and are terraced with the principal terrace being above the double garage. It makes an outstanding entertaining area during the summer months taking in the sun much of the day with view to the church and countryside. The garden stretches upwards behind the main terrace on a series of levels hand are well stocked with architectural plants designed to give shape, and form throughout the seasons with minimal maintenance.
