    About this property

    • Having been in the same ownership for over 40 years, Well House is a detached Grade II listed house, full of immense charm and character with attractive gardens of over 0.70 of an acre and a lovely outlook over the village green.

      The property, which is believed to date in part from 1620 and was at one time the village shop, offers potential purchasers the opportunity for some updating. There is attached garaging, together with a former forge that adjoins a neighbouring property and is currently used for storage purposes, but with great potential subject to planning.

      This delightful period home with over 3,000 sq ft of internal accommodation has three reception rooms on the ground floor, including the attractive drawing room incorporating an east facing sitting area with full length windows affording an outlook over the front gardens to the village green beyond.

      The kitchen features painted beams, modern cupboards and appliances include a Miele oven and AEG induction hob. To one end there is a breakfast room, a rear hall and a bathroom and, to the other, a utility room/pantry with access to the two garages and the rear garden.

      There are a total of six bedrooms over the first and second floors, with a further bathroom, attic study (optional bedroom seven) and a useful attic store room. All of the bedrooms benefit from built in cupboards and enjoy an easterly aspect with views towards the green.

      Well House is approached over a drive leading to a parking area and the garaging. To the front lie pretty lawned gardens with a pond and a brick path with lavender beds to either side. To the rear lies a wide pebble terrace spanning the length of the house, steps lead to expansive lawns with raised vegetable beds, yew hedging, a weeping pear and mixed hedging to western boundary which abuts a neighbouring field.
      Attached to a neighbouring property is the charming old village forge, still with the blacksmith's bellows in place and currently utilised for storage.
