    About this property

    • Beecroft is a charming and unique link-detached brick and stone property which is situated in the heart of the village. The property was constructed in about 1800 with extensions added in 2018 and 2021 by the current owners. The property offers beautifully presented and flexible accommodation. Decorated in a subtle palette of contemporary colours, the property is light and airy throughout.

      There are three excellent reception rooms. There is a double aspect sitting room with an attractive fireplace and ceiling timbers. Shelves and cupboards have been fitted to either side of the fireplace. The south-facing dining room with vaulted ceiling and two sets of glazed doors is situated at the rear of the property with views over the garden. Adjacent to the dining room is a well-proportioned family room/bedroom three with en suite shower room and dressing area with fitted cupboards. Again the ceiling is vaulted and double doors lead out to the garden. A second sitting room leads to the kitchen which is the heart of the home. The kitchen is superbly fitted with a range of painted cabinets with integrated appliances and a three-oven Aga. There is plenty of room for a table and chairs. A well appointed utility room and cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.

      There are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor. Both bedrooms benefit from fitted cupboards.

      Oak gates provide access to a gravelled driveway and parking for several cars. The property benefits from a peaceful and private large garden which is laid to lawn and partly walled. It has a range of mature trees and herbaceous borders. Delightful terraces lie at the rear of the property and are ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining. A lovely summerhouse sits comfortably in the corner of the garden.

      A very special feature of the garden is the heritage orchard which contains several varieties of apple tree. As well as preserving heritage varieties, the orchard provides food and habitat for birds and insects.
