    About this property

    • The Oak House was built in 2012 to an exacting specification, having high quality fixtures, fittings and finishes, and with particular attention given to energy efficiency and levels of insulation. The house has a timber frame with rendered and wood clad elevations under a tiled roof. A particular feature are the heavy oak framed double height windows with high efficiency ‘K' glass, both to the front door and landing window above on the front elevation, and the main living room and principal bedroom suite above at the rear. There is underfloor central heating to both ground and first floors, served by an air source heat pump, and double glazed colour coded windows. Internally there is engineered oak flooring to most rooms, stylish kitchen and bathroom fittings, vaulted ceilings with exposed timbers to the first floor rooms, the house is in immaculate decorative order throughout.

      An oak front door opens into a welcoming double height reception hall with oak flooring, and stylish guest cloakroom with marble washstand. The sitting room has French doors to the garden, one wall is fitted with an excellent range of painted wood cabinets and bookshelves, and a handsome stone fire surround with log burner. The stunning ‘L' shaped kitchen/ dining/ family room has one wall of full height glazing including fixed oak framed windows plus bi-fold doors providing unobstructed access to the terrace and overlooking the gardens and fields beyond. The seating area features a wood burner with glass plinth. The kitchen area is fitted with a range of painted wood units with granite surfaces, stainless-steel under mounted sink with boiling water tap, central island unit with oak surface, Rangemaster range cooker with propane gas burners, extractor hood over, fridge/ freezer plumbed for water and ice, wine fridge and dishwasher. There is a useful walk in larder with shelving and a separate utility/ boot room with slate floor and a good range of built in furniture including a bench and cloaks/ shoe storage, also concealing plumbing and space for washer and dryer.

      An elegant staircase with oak bannister leads up to the first floor galleried landing with frameless glass screen to the full height glazing. The principal bedroom has spectacular full height oak framed windows providing lovely views, a good range of built in wardrobes with internal fittings, and a luxurious spa-like en suite bathroom with travertine wall and floor tiling, freestanding bath, and walk through glass shower. There are three further double bedrooms, all with vaulted ceilings and one having access to an eaves storage area. The family bathroom features a bath and separate glazed shower.

      The Oak House is approached from a private unmade lane, via an in and out shingle driveway which provides extensive parking and turning areas. There is an oak framed Triple Garage Block built in keeping with the house, and having a pitched tiled roof, with one enclosed and two open bays. Between the garage and the house is a separate storage building, formerly a double garage and utility, which is in need of some refurbishment. Within the grounds is a former stable block, also in need of refurbishment or replacement.
      The house enjoys a delightfully private setting in gardens and grounds of about 1.43 acres, which adjoin open fields at the rear and provides lovely views. They are laid mainly to lawn with a number of trees, and established shrubs along the side boundaries. An extensive decked and paved terrace runs across the rear of the house, accessed from the sitting room and family room, perfect for outdoor entertaining.
      A pergola planted with climbing plants leads from the house to The Cabin, a detached timber garden studio/ office with CAT6 wiring and wifi.
