Wonderful historic village house with walled garden.
Hardings is an enchanting period village house with delightful gardens, a fabulous outdoor dining area and coach house/studio.
Believed to date to the 16th century, the charming building retains many outstanding period features throughout, including exposed timbers, inglenook fires and original windows.
The accommodation flows remarkably well and comprises, superb, light filled and well-proportioned rooms.
Occupying the heart of the house, the sitting room is a light and spacious space. To the north-east of the room is an impressive inglenook fireplace with an inset wood burning stove.
Beyond the sitting room, to the rear of the house, is the superb kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen has a butler style sink, oven and induction hob, an integrated dishwasher and a number of storage cupboards.
This bright room is filled with light from the garden facing windows and sky lights. French windows lead out to the beautiful terrace and garden. Beyond the kitchen is a useful shower room.
The parlour provides a more intimate area to entertain and relax. The triple aspect room has a charming chimneypiece with a flagstone hearth, exposed timbers and a glazed door to the garden.
The panelled study, which occupies the opposite end of the house to the parlour, has a brick chimneypiece and lime washed timbers. It is another excellent space within the house - ideal for reading and working.
The first floor consists of four elegantly proportioned and characterful bedrooms, and the family bathroom. The principal bedroom enjoys especially fine views of the garden as well as an en suite bathroom.
Hardings has a delightful and private walled garden to the rear. Immediately to the rear of the house is an excellent terrace, which leads to the covered outside dining area. Within the garden are various mature trees and borders.
To the side of the principal building is a spacious coach house, which has been used a s a studio and even a shop front in the past - double doors lead directly to the pavement at the front.
Hardings sits smartly behind wrought iron fencing to the front with a gated drive and parking area to the side.

Hardings in an enchanting house, with bags of period charm, in one of my favourite villages. I especially love the delightful walled garden and outside dining area.Alexander McNab
