Immaculately presented period house in over an acre.
Nightingales is an exceptional period house, which has been restored to an impressive standard by our clients, in stunning grounds of about an acre.
Believed to date from the 16th century and originally a weavers house, Nightingales retains a wealth of period features and charm, including exposed timbers, studwork and inglenook fires.
Our clients have comprehensively restored, renovated and improved the building to create a comfortable family home, comprising well-proportioned and light-filled accommodation, perfectly fusing historic charm and contemporary design and practicalities.
Nightingales sits centrally in its grounds, back from the road, with rendered elevations, hand built, double glazed, timber windows and a pantile roof. The front door opens into a useful porch and through to the ground floor accommodation.
The double aspect sitting room is a delightful, spacious and bright space with exposed beams and a striking inglenook fire with an inset woodburning stove.
The dining room, similarly, has woodwork and inglenook fire, with a wood-burning stove; French windows lead out to the beautiful gardens.
Beyond the dining room is the attractive, bespoke Neptune kitchen, with hand-build carpentry, oak work-surfaces, butler-style double sink and integrated Neff appliances including a fridge/freezer, oven, and induction hob.
The kitchen opens out to the light-filled garden room, which enjoys superb views over the rear garden; French windows lead out to the terrace.
An oak staircase leads to the first floor consisting of three generous double bedrooms and the family bathroom.
The principal bedroom is especially fine: the double aspect room has wonderful views over the garden and surrounding fields, and an en suite shower room.
Nightingales has stunning gardens in about one acre of land. Immediately to the rear of the house is an attractive tiered terrace, perfect for al fresco dining.
Within the grounds are areas of lawn, a kitchen garden and mature trees. There are a variety of herbaceous perennials, roses and lavender; to the rear of the house is a woodland, with bluebells.
To the front of the house is a shingle drive, leading to a double garage, and a front garden with a walnut tree, tulips and narcissi.
Nightingales is a wonderful period house, with a wealth of historic charm, which has been restored and upgraded by our clients to create a fantastically comfortable home. I love the incredible inglenook fires in the ground floor reception rooms and the kitchen, which flows through to fantastic garden room.Alexander McNabProperty agent
