    About this property

    • A glorious, unlisted timber-frame country cottage which has been the subject of a careful programme of restoration, situated within a delightful stretch of open countryside.

      The original part of the house is believed to date from the 1600s - the oldest part being traditionally constructed with a fine oak timber frame relieved by whitewashed rendered and clad elevations, under a thatched roof. A second wing was added in the 1980s providing its 'L' shaped design and in total the house offers approximately 3400 sq ft of accommodation.

      In summary, there are four bedrooms to the first floor and several reception spaces located on the ground floor, full of characterful features, typical of properties of this age. The property sits well within its landscaped grounds extending to about 0.55 of an acre, which complement this fine family home. There is a double garage and a detached studio and nearby access to a network of footpaths over rolling countryside and river walks.

      The house is entered from the front into an entrance lobby opening to an inner hall. The quality of the accommodation is exemplified by a fine hand-crafted kitchen which includes a red-brick fireplace with log burner and opens into a cosy breakfast room. Adjacent lies a light-filled orangery with views and access over the terrace and gardens. There is a further entrance hall to the southern aspect, off which is a cloakroom, utility room and store. To the side of the house is a delightful garden room and a separate study/snug. Circling back to the front of the house is a stunning sitting room, zoned into two sections, with red-brick fireplaces and inset log burners. There are two independent staircases leading to the first floor accommodation which comprises four bedrooms, two of which have en suite facilities. There is a luxury family bathroom and all of the bedrooms provide fitted wardrobes. The principal bedroom is a delightful room with a dressing room and spacious en suite. There is a balcony providing far-reaching countryside views, towards the River Ter.

      Nestled in a picturesque countryside setting, the beautiful garden of Gregory's has been thoughtfully designed to create a blend of open spaces and private seating areas. The garden provides a wrap-around terrace connecting the indoor and outdoor spaces, extending the living area, making it an ideal space for outdoor dining and relaxation. The terrace extends to well-manicured areas of lawn, interspersed with a variety of flowers and shrubs, with neat box hedging, providing all-year-round colour and interest. There are thoughtfully designed pathways connecting each aspect of the garden along with a Victorian-style greenhouse and a circular summerhouse. To the southern boundary is a detached timber-framed studio, providing an ideal space to work from home.

      The gated driveway is located to the side of the property, providing ample parking, and leads to a detached double garage. The garage provides plenty of space for vehicles and additional storage and is of pitched-roof design, complementing the house.

      All in about 0.55 of an acre.

      Mains water, oil-fired heating and private drainage.
