A fabulous character home , enjoying elegantly proportioned rooms and a magnificent garden of around 1.5 acres, yet within striking distance of village facilities
This wonderful family home has been in the same ownership for over 50 years, during which time it has been sympathetically modernised and improved, whilst retaining the original charm and character of what is a landmark home of the area.
Grade II* listed, the original layout offers substantial living space and flexible accommodation currently configured on the ground floor to provide a drawing room, dining room and a further reception, currently used as a sitting room. In addition, there is a study and a south westerly aspect conservatory/sun room enjoying a wonderful view over the gardens to the rear. The kitchen/breakfast room also enjoys a garden aspect with an adjacent utility and guest cloakroom.
On the first floor there is a principal bedroom next to a family bathroom which can also be accessed from the landing. There are a further two bedrooms on this floor, one with its own en suite shower/WC and in addition a separate cloakroom. On the second floor there are 3 further bedrooms sharing their own additional bathroom/WC.
The flexible layout of the house essentially means that one section of the house has the potential to be self contained with an additional set of staircases enabling access to all floors.
On the outside the house is set back from the road, with off road parking for several vehicles in front of a substantial detached garage, with two large storage rooms over, approached via an internal staircase. We feel this may offer further potential for conversion to a self contained annexe, subject to planning permission.
The delightful landscaped grounds and gardens extend to around 1.5 acres. These have been lovingly maintained and feature a dazzling array of mature plants and shrubs, plus specimen fruit trees and a pathway leading to the rear meadow / potential paddock. There are various topiary box hedging borders and a few outbuildings including a stable, sheds and an old wash house which is currently used as a children's playhouse
