About this property

  • An elegant former farmhouse set back from the road with ample parking, outbuildings and a private garden, the stone house retains period charm and attractive features such as mullioned windows, elegant fireplaces, cornicing and some original cupboards, with nicely proportioned principal rooms.

    The entrance hallway has a beautiful parquet floor. The drawing room is spacious and dual-aspect, with high ceiling and enamelled wood burning stove, framed by built-in cupboards and shelving. The dining room has a mullioned window and Victorian fireplace, whilst the sitting room has mullion windows to either side and wood burning stove.

    The kitchen forms the core of the house and has space for daily dining and cooking. The fitted suite is laid out beneath granite work-surfaces and is arranged around an Aga, whilst a rear lobby accesses a utility/boot room, walk-in pantry and the integral garaging.

    The main staircase rises from the entrance hallway to a landing which serves the en suite principal and guest double bedrooms, as well as double bedroom three. This bedroom has two doors, the second linking to a rear landing accessed via a secondary staircase, serving the family bathroom, which is superbly appointed with a full suite, and double bedroom four. Bedroom five and a shower room are accessed by a third staircase from the rear lobby.
