    About this property

      Dated 1863, this attractive listed period stone house offers well proportioned accommodation in a discreet Conservation Village setting, set back from the village lane. The wide entrance hallway is flanked by large sitting and dining rooms. The sitting room spans the width of the house, with an open fireplace, high timber beamed ceiling. Floor to ceiling arched windows to the rear garden, as well as a large bay window with French doors to the front of the house. The symmetrical dining room is also well proportioned, with a fireplace housing a wood burning stove, high beamed ceiling and large bay window. The hallway leads past a utility and cloakroom to a large kitchen, with four windows overlooking the garden, two of which echo the arch detailing of those in the sitting room. With a double oven AGA, separate electric oven and hob, dishwasher and central island, there is also ample space for a table.

      Beyond the kitchen, a dual aspect family room/study has French doors on to the raised exterior dining terrace. The five bedrooms are all at first floor level and generously proportioned. The symmetrical principal bedroom, with built in wardrobes and en suite bathroom, and second bedroom span the frontage of the house, whilst a landing corridor leads to bedroom three and, past the full-suite family bathroom, to double bedrooms four and five.

      The gravelled driveway provides parking for several vehicles to the front of the oversized garage, with electric up and over door. The main garden lies to the rear of the house. The gardens have been landscaped and created by the current owners. Largely lawned, with a wide selection of plants, shrubs and trees, the garden offers a high degree of privacy, with tiered pond, and a large patio and raised terrace adjoining the house, which are ideal for alfresco dining. It extends to just under a quarter of an acre.
