      Handsome country house of Georgian origins with later additions.

      Mellow pink brick elevations under a clay tile roof.

      Wealth of period features include open fireplaces, sash windows, four panel internal doors with elegant door furniture, cornicing, deep skirtings, exposed floorboards, a mixture of flagstone, mosaic tile, oak and pine floor board flooring and elegant principal pitch pine staircase.

      The current owners have undertaken a sympathetic refurbishment programme including the installation of a bespoke kitchen/breakfast room, the hub of the house with two oven electric Aga, island, granite work surfaces, garden room, radiator covers, modern lighting and two gas boilers.

      The drawing and dining rooms provide formality and for those looking to entertain whilst there is a lovely modern garden room accessed from the family room which allows for year round informal entertaining and a vantage point to take in the garden.

      Attention to detail allows for modern living amongst the elegance of this important architectural era. Useful back stairs and second floor bedrooms make the layout ideal for teenagers and guests.

      Given its Georgian architecture, the house offers lovely, well-proportioned principal rooms with generous ceiling heights, all giving a real sense of light and space.

      From the village road a five bar timber gate leads to cobble sett drive and beyond to shingle covered parking to the front and side.

      A range of traditional brick outbuildings lie to the east of the main house and comprise garaging, games room, workshop (with wood burning stove), greenhouse and a variety of stores one would expect for a house of this age and size. Scope exists for conversion of some of the outbuildings to other use (office, annexe accommodation, subject to the relevant consents).

      Extensive gardens with many handsome trees including oak, silver birch, holly, horse chestnut and sycamore, rose and shrub borders with hedge, estate fenced and post and rail fenced boundaries. Orchard interspersed with apple, pear and plum trees. There is a partly walled section dividing the formal lawned garden from the orchard. Pond. Paved terrace for summer entertaining. Vegetable garden with box hedging.

      Hard tennis court.

      Beyond there is about 28.1 acres of grazing with separate access from the village road and a small spinney to the south-east boundary.

      Occupying an enviable edge of village position, the property commands views across its land and countryside beyond and offers plenty of space and privacy.

      In all about 30.1 acres.

      Lot 2 - The Moat Barn (As shown blue on the lotting plan):

      Detached barn conversion offered in good order throughout.

      Mellow pink brick and oak frame elevations under a clay tile roof.

      Various features include a double height glazed oak framed atrium, exposed timbers, and brick work.

      Modern fittings include gas Aga, oak flooring, terracotta tiled floors, white bathroom suites and double glazing.

      Lovely vaulted kitchen/sitting room with mezzanine study area above. Extensive glazed oak framed doors open to the gardens to the south-east. This all gives a real sense of light and airy living.

      Bedrooms are laid out on both ground and first floors making it perfect for visitors. Useful study/bedroom four.

      Gated driveway leads to an area of shingle parking and beyond to the oak frame garage block comprising double garage and useful workshop/stores with light and power connected. In addition there is a range of traditional brick outbuildings comprising two former stables and garden store.

      To the south-east is a lovely, level, brick walled garden predominately laid to lawn making for easy maintenance.

      Old and new combine beautifully here making it a lovely home, ideal for a young family, downsizers or as a separate, annexed home to the main house for dependent relatives or income stream.

      As a whole about 0.2 acres.
