A classic country home in a beautiful setting.
This beautifully presented, Grade II listed family house has a wealth of character and style and has been sympathetically restored and modernised by the current owners. Accessed via a private track, this property is situated in glorious countryside and sits in an elevated position with commanding stunning views.
The formal front door opens to a wide central hall, leading to the rear door and flag stone hallway. The light filled kitchen benefits from a fully glazed elevation with French doors to the side garden and al fresco entertaining area. An electric Aga takes pride of place in this generous sized room. The double aspect dining room opens from the kitchen with a warming wood burning stove to welcome guests. Two further reception rooms and a stylish cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation; a formal sitting room with open fire, double aspect and impressive bay window, and a smaller sitting room with wood burning stove.
A substantial cellar is accessed below the classic Georgian staircase which in turn leads to the upper floors.
First floor accommodation comprises a master bedroom suite with superb views, 4 further double rooms (one used as a study) and the family shower room. The wide landing and spacious airing cupboard compliment this floor. On the second floor there are 2 further good sized double rooms, both with en suite w.c. and hand basin, the larger room with a shower unit and dressing area.
A gravelled entrance drive provides plenty of parking and leads to the double carport with lock up store room to the side.
Lawns wrap around 3 sides of the house with a raised patio terrace to the front, making the most of the views. To the rear is a large paved terrace leading to an upper level rear lawn. There is a period barn adjacent to the house with 2 wooden stables to the side and a summer house on the terrace. This timber framed, brick panelled barn under a slate roof is used as ancillary entertaining space, it has internal stairs to a half mezzanine second floor.
A useful paddock is located across the access track, in front of the house and comprises approximately 3.2 acres of land.
