The kitchen is spacious with a Rayburn, separate induction hob and plenty of workspace and storage units. There is also room for a spacious breakfast/ dining area making it a lovely social hub.

    One of the key features of the property is not only its setting, but also the extensive gardens that surround the house, all providing a real feeling of open space and privacy but in the heart of a village. The best of both worlds. Set in about 2.3 acres, the pockets of variety in the garden provide a real and true oasis. An abundance of mature trees, shrubs, bushes, vegetable gardens, flower beds, and seating areas to be enjoyed all year round, as well as a paddock ideal for grazing sheep or goats or even a pony.
