About this property

  • The Owl House is understood to have been built in the early 1800's with a later addition to the side. Built of stone under a slate roof, the property has been meticulously upgraded over recent years to provide a beautifully presented home of the utmost quality. Indeed very little remains unchanged and the owners have been scrupulous in their attention to detail, particularly in their choice of appointments and clever use of space. The same applies outside where a pretty, south facing garden complements the house and creates a peaceful setting.

    Internally most rooms are dual aspect and include a welcoming sitting room with windows seats, outside door and a fireplace with wood burning stove. Glazed double doors connect from the dining room which features ceiling beams and a woodburning stove. A cosy snug is positioned next to the front door and includes a woodburning stove. The vaulted kitchen is the piece de resistance and has been beautifully created by Sambourne Kitchens to a traditional design. Arranged around a central island are an excellent range of floor and wall cabinets which incorporate all the required appliances as well as a larder cupboard, wine racking, spice cupboard and swivel pan shelves. The granite work surfaces work well with the limestone floor which also extends to most of the ground floor. A back door opens onto an outside entertaining area. In the centre of the house is the hall with the original front door and off which is the cloakroom and a utility room with boiler.

    The staircase divides to provide a cleverly incorporated office area with a glazed side screen. The beamed principal bedroom is full height and includes a separate dressing area and an en suite shower room. The second bedroom also has an ensuite shower room. The guest bedroom is on the ground floor, has French doors to the garden and benefits from an en suite bathroom.

    Automated gates lead into the gravelled parking area where there are log and bike stores, a discreet storage area and a good sized workshop ready for an electric car power point. A shingle pathway leads up to the house with lawned areas to either side which include two apple trees. Along the front of the house are rose borders edged with box hedging. Along the side boundary is a chicken coop, greenhouse and raised stone herb beds. Close to the house is a flagstone, summer relaxation area which includes an alfresco dining area with a pizza oven and an all year round gazebo covering a Canadian Spa hot tub. A side gate leads to the rear of the house where there are further shrub borders and a pedestrian gate onto the lane.
