About this property

  • Upper Frogs Hole is an idyllically situated modern three bedroom property which was designed by the current owner and built in 2012 with gently sloping landscaped gardens and grounds of over 3 acres together with various detached outbuildings, including a summerhouse, a home office and two double garages.

    The property enjoys light and easy flowing internal accommodation with bi-fold doors to the interconnecting reception rooms, the modern kitchen/breakfast room and principal bedroom. Further points include underfloor heating with individual thermostatic controls to the ground floor, a wood burning stove in the 24 ft sitting room and solar photovoltaic panels with the remainder of a 20 year warranty from 2015 and with a feed in tariff through EDF.

    The kitchen/breakfast room benefits from direct access to a wide terrace spanning the length of the house and affording wonderful views over the gardens and neighbouring fields beyond. There is an extensive range of cupboards together with central island and appliances include a wall mounted oven, four ring gas hob and Bosch integral dishwasher with space for a fridge/freezer and a separate utility room having further space for white goods.

    Completing the ground floor is a bedroom suite with a shower room equipped with white sanitary ware. From the reception hall an oak staircase leads to the first floor where there are two further bedroom suites, both with excellent en suite bath/shower rooms, including the main bedroom with balcony.

    Upper Frogs Hole is approached via a five bar gate opening to a generous gravel drive providing ample parking and access to two detached double garages via electric roller doors. The gardens have been professionally landscaped by Stephen Crisp creating a wild environment perfect for flora and fauna and incorporating a central sloping lawn stretching away to a pond and flanked by varieties of specimen trees with trail walks meandering through to an orchard planted with fruit trees.
