About this property

    In the heart of the village, close to the Norman Church of St Peter and St Paul, to which there are views from the garden, The Tithe Barn is set back from Top Road with a sweeping gravel driveway approach, initially shared with the neighbouring former Rectory, that provides ample parking for many vehicles and culminates at the house and its detached double garage.

    Of stone and brick construction, the house is thought to have been constructed in the 1970s, when The Tithe Barn was sold by the Church Commissioners. It has had two owners since, and has been within the seller's wider family's ownership since 1990. With a high degree of privacy, the property provides well-proportioned accommodation. Requiring some modernisation, the living accommodation is generous, with some lovely views from the house of the mature south facing gardens.

    The open fronted porch and front door enters into a large vaulted entrance hallway, which links the two south facing reception rooms with The Tithe Barn itself, the dining room, at the northern end of the house, passing the kitchen, the utility and a shower room en route.

    To the south of the front door, steps rise to the impressive 29' sitting room, from which patio doors open to the garden's terrace, and the study/play room beyond, which together occupy the entire southern wing of the ground floor. To the north, the hallway leads to The Tithe Barn itself, a fabulous dining room, thought to have potential for the creation of a standout kitchen, passing the current utility room and kitchen, as well as a ground floor shower room. The dining room, is an impressive vaulted 20'x16' room with exposed stone walls, trussed timbers and a tall and wide arched glazed gable window looking into the walled and wrought iron railed front courtyard garden.

    At first floor level, the principal bedroom has been created through the amalgamation of two rooms. It is a large double offering fine views of the garden, with an en suite bathroom. Bedrooms two and three are both generous doubles, each with fitted wardrobes, and are served by a family bathroom.

    Approached by a wide gravelled driveway, which is owned by this property and with a right of access in favour of the neighbouring property, Churchfield, the gravelled driveway offers ample parking for vehicles and access to the detached double garage, above which there is a large office room/annex or potential fourth bedroom, accessed by an external staircase.

    The formal garden lies to the south of the house, accessed by a pathway from the drive around the house, or from the sitting room. The gardens are a delight, and offer lovely views past the house to the Parish Church. Visually vibrant, the lawns are flanked by well stocked flowering and shrub borders, whilst mature fruit, deciduous, yew and Wellingtonia species trees offer visual interest and screening.

On a sunny day the interior was bright and the outlook from the house to the garden, and from within the garden to the church, were both vibrant and impressive.
