About this property

  • Garden House is a well situated country house of enormous potential. The house is constructed predominantly from brick with part rendered and colour washed elevations under pitched peg tiled roofs. Internally the house has numerous features that include open fireplaces, exposed wooden floors, well proportioned rooms and French windows. The current owners have significantly extended the house with great flair to create a fantastic light and airy sitting room with two sets of French doors out on to the decked terrace. The room also benefits from a charming French wood burning stove. The kitchen/breakfast room has been particularly well fitted out with both base and wall mounted handmade kitchen units with granite and wooden work surfaces. It provides a Falcon range, island unit and Belfast sink. The larder and utility room are off the kitchen. The inner hall leads through to the study and office as well as the boot room, cloakroom and door through to the annexe. The annexe offers a very well proportioned reception room, en suite shower room and stairs up to a double bedroom. The first floor accommodation has two bedroom suites both of which lead out on to the decked balcony that overlooks the meadows and paddocks. The master bedroom has two sets of built in wardrobes, dressing room and en suite bath/ shower room. The other bedroom suite has a glazed gable with French windows opening on to the balcony and an en suite shower room. There are a further three double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The studio has electricity, is air-conditioned and has a balcony. The gardens and grounds have numerous mature trees providing a high degree of privacy and seclusion. A decked terrace runs from the front of the house all the way round to the rear, perfect for al fresco dining. To the rear lie the kitchen garden, fruit cages, paddocks and stable block.
