    About this property

    • Orchard House is a deceptively substantial home in lovely decorative order, still allowing scope for a new family to put their own twist on the house, moving forward. Orchard House also enjoys easy access onto the glorious surrounding countryside.

      Accessed via the reception hall the good-sized kitchen/breakfast room enjoys the outlook over the gardens with a range of wall and floor mounted units and worktops, providing good storage and preparation space, together with range of integrated appliances. There is also an adjoining utility room with sink, storage and space for further white goods and direct access to the garden.

      The sitting room, fitted with electric wood-effect fireplace has French doors providing the view over and opening onto the terrace and rear garden; the adjoining dining room has glazed doors that provide the option to open/close this room off from the sitting room whenever required, ideal when entertaining on a larger scale. A study is found to the front of the house which is ideal for working from home; a wc completes the ground floor.

      On the first floor the generous principal bedroom enjoys a bank of fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room, there are three further double bedrooms and a fifth bedroom/study/nursery all served by the separate family bathroom.

      Outside: Orchard House enjoys an established, modest garden to the rear, landscaped with easy maintenance in mind, with a paved terrace, ideal for outdoor entertaining and area of level lawn, bordered by flowerbeds and hedges.

      Orchard House also benefits from driveway parking to the front of the house for several cars and a double garage.
