    About this property

    • With origins dating to the 17th century, the pretty, Grade II listed, timber framed property was extended in the 18th century and has further evolved in more recent years.
      Retaining many period features including some leaded light casement windows, exposed timbers and inglenook fireplaces, accommodation extends to about 3700 sq ft of comfortable family living space. There are three reception rooms: a large drawing room with wood burning stove and French doors to the garden, dining room with inglenook and sitting room also opening to the garden. The kitchen with Aga and work island is open plan to the conservatory. Off the kitchen is a utility room with stable door to garden. On the first floor the principal bedroom and large en suite bathroom overlook the garden and views to the rear. There are four further bedrooms, one en suite, and a family bathroom.

      Set in grounds extending to about one acre, the property is approached through high timber, electric gates to ample gravel parking to the front. Three stables today provide useful stores with power and electricity. The double garage, more recently used as a games room, has a home office above with WC. There is a detached, thatched open bay cart store, currently used for logs, which is in need of re-thatching and repair.

      Gardens to the rear overlook open countryside. Terraces extend from the conservatory with steps rising to the pool area. The summer house, built in 2019, has a mezzanine, electric heating, fridge, bar and wifi and makes the space ideal for relaxing and entertaining. Well stocked beds and established trees and shrubs frame the gardens.
