About this property

  • This rather attractive period house has seen a significant number of changes throughout its 150 year history, starting life as a modest farm house, extended and converted into a public house and later a bed and breakfast. The final chapter of the story has seen the house converted back into a fabulous family house, the current vendor having transformed the property in recent years, installing new timber double glazed windows and redecorating throughout amongst numerous other improvements.

    The house stands on the edge of the village surrounded by beautiful open countryside, accessed to the front via a newly constructed oak framed entrance porch and to the side via a gated graveled drive which provides ample parking/turning space for numerous cars and leads to a recently constructed garage block with electric roller shutter door. A raised patio leads from here around to the rear entrance into a generous utility/boot room. From here the house flows in a very practical and family friendly manner, the well equipped farmhouse kitchen opening into a character packed dining room and onto to the cosy sitting room. Adjacent to this is an inviting garden room which has French doors opening onto the rear patio. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a well proportioned drawing room with large picture windows to three elevations and a striking central fireplace.

    The first floor is equally well balanced and practical, four of the bedrooms being en-suite, the fifth sharing the bathroom linked to the principle bedroom suite. Each of the bedrooms have been tastefully redecorated and have large windows with arresting views of the gardens and surrounding countryside.

    An equal amount of time and effort has been invested into the gardens which surround the house, the deep beds which boarder the immaculate lawn having been skillfully planted to create layers of colour and all year round interest. There are several sitting out spaces ideal for alfresco dining and just across the driveway is a versatile summerhouse with power and light, which could double as a home office.
