About this property

  • A sizeable village house with Elizabethan origins occupying a delightful setting overlooking the village green. Bridge House is a stunning timber framed house with plaster elevations set beneath a handmade red clay tile roof providing exceptional family accommodation.

    This grade II listed house enjoys a wealth of period features including exposed beams with feature fireplaces, combined with a modern kitchen/breakfast room and bathroom suites. The accommodation is grand in proportion comprising three main reception rooms, orientated to make the most of the village setting, separated by an inner hallway with stairs rising to the first floor.

    To the rear of the house, overlooking and opening to the formal garden is a dining/reception room. Beyond is a utility room and cloakroom.

    There is a family bathroom and three bedrooms to the first floor including a wonderful principle suite with luxury en suite bathroom. To the upper level there are a further two bedrooms.

    The property enjoys a private south facing garden providing a wealth of colour and interest. The garden has been thoughtfully planted with mature trees and shrubs and areas of lawn which extend from the paved terrace. To the side, a gated drive leads an area of parking.

    All in around 0.18 of an acre.

    Oil heating, mains water, mains drainage.

Having the village green literally on your doorstep, in arguably one of the most attractive villages, makes this a very special house. I love the period detail and the beautiful gardens.
