About this property

  • Dating back to the 17th century, this fine, Grade II listed property retains a wealth of period features throughout including beamed ceilings, stone mullion windows and original fireplaces. The accommodation extends to 2200sqft and is arranged over three storeys, providing three reception rooms, a breakfast kitchen, four bedrooms and two bathrooms. There are stunning views across rolling open countryside from both the house and the tiered garden.

    Entry to the front aspect leads directly into the charming, dual aspect breakfast kitchen, recently refitted to incorporate a range of grey and duck egg blue cabinetry with a central chef's island, granite work surfaces and underfloor heating. Integrated appliances within the kitchen include a Mercury range oven with extractor above, a Neff dishwasher, Neff full height fridge and freezer, Bosch washer dryer and a Belfast sink. There is also a full height dresser unit to the far end of the kitchen and additional useful pantry cupboards.

    The sitting room neighbours the kitchen and is full of character, displaying exposed oak beams, a stone fireplace with inset duel fuel burner and an original salt cupboard. The adjoining, dual aspect snug is a charming room, featuring a large, focal point stone built fireplace with an inset multifuel burner, an exposed stone wall to the front elevation and a beamed ceiling.

    Accessible externally, there is a ground floor office, offering a perfect home working space with a parquet floor, underfloor heating, and built-in bookcase and cupboards, one of which neatly houses the boiler and hot water tank.

    Two staircases ascend to the first floor, one from the kitchen with the principal staircase leading from the snug, providing access to a split level landing. Off to the left hand side of the split level staircase is the formal dining room, featuring original wood flooring, a full wall of fitted book shelving and low level cupboards, a feature, stone fireplace and stone mullion window to the front aspect.

    Leading off the dining room is the principal bedroom, a spacious room with two sets of fitted wardrobes, original wood strip flooring, feature stone fireplace and exposed beams. The principal bedroom lends access to the second landing which is also accessible via the kitchen staircase, granting entry to a further double bedroom and a modern three piece shower room, fitted with a combination WC and sink unit with storage cupboard above and a large, walk-in shower.

    Off to the right hand side of the principal, split level staircase is the third bedroom, a lovely, dual aspect double bedroom.

    Stairs to the second floor ascend from the dining room to a large landing which could be used as a dressing area. The second floor accommodation makes for an excellent guest space, made up of a triple aspect, vaulted double bedroom with fitted wardrobe and a contemporary four piece bathroom with fitted bath, two chrome heated towel rails, a vanity WC and sink unit with marble surface and a separate shower enclosure.

    One of the principal features of the property are the extensive grounds, with a total plot size approaching 0.2 acres with triple tiered gardens. The lower level of the garden is bound by a high, stone built wall, with log store and a stretch of lawn which neighbours the off street, gated parking area. Steps lead from the parking area up to a generous flagstone patio, allowing for a very pleasant recreational and dining area. Further steps lead on to two stone outbuildings and up to the main area of garden which is predominantly laid to lawn descending down to the final tier of lawned garden area. The upper part of the garden provides an elevated patio seating area taking full advantage of the superb views on offer.
