About this property

  • A most appealing family house, having pretty elevations of red brick and whitened render with small paned windows under a mainly slate and partly tiled roof. The house is light and spacious with most rooms featuring lovely views across the garden to open farmland beyond. The accommodation is attractively presented and many of the rooms have been tastefully redecorated within the last year.

    The front door opens into a double height reception hall with galleried landing above, and bookshelves in the under stairs recess. The generously sized drawing room has double aspect windows including French doors to the terrace, a fireplace with Jetmaster fire, and wood floor. Leading off is a useful study, and from there a door leads to a good size family room currently being used as a studio, with French doors to the terrace and a stable door to the driveway. The ‘L' shaped kitchen/ breakfast room has windows to front and rear including French doors to the terrace, and is fitted with an extensive range of hand painted units by Harvey Jones with granite and wood surfaces, an electric Aga with canopy and extractor over, two burner induction hob and oven below, dishwasher, and space for an American fridge/ freezer. Leading off is a utility/ boot room with sink, plumbing and space for washer and dryer, coat and boot storage, stable door to the driveway, walk in larder with cold shelf, and door to the cloakroom with WC and basin.

    A staircase from the hall leads up to the first floor galleried landing with airing cupboard. The main bedroom has double aspect windows to side and rear, a dressing room with window and a modern en suite shower room with shower, wash basin and WC. There are three further double bedrooms and a stylish modern family bathroom.

    The house has the benefit of oil fired central heating and partial double glazing, the first floor windows having been replaced with wood effect UPVC units in recent years.

    A five bar gates gives access to the extensive shingle driveway providing parking and turning areas and leading to the Garage/ Workshop/ Stable block arranged in three areas including a wine store, and having light and power, and a pitched roof with loft storage.

    The gardens are a particular feature, extending to approximately 0.94 acres and enjoying a sunny south and west aspect with views across open countryside. A paved terrace runs across the rear of the house, including a dining area with pergola and grape vine, perfect for summer entertaining. The main part of the garden is laid to grass with areas of wild flower meadow, and there is a long cottage border planted with an attractive variety of herbaceous plants running along the garden wall to one side. Within the garden are variety of specimen trees including Japanese maple, gingko, walnut and a Judas tree, and fruit trees including damson, fig, greengage, plum and cherry. The rearmost part of the garden is approached through a five bar gate and is arranged as a small paddock with post and rail fence surrounding. In addition, situated behind the garage block is a partially walled, productive vegetable garden with raised beds and a compost area. Several of the trees and borders in the garden are illuminated.
