    About this property

    • Cedar House is situated on the main street in the village with views to the rear over countryside which can be enjoyed from the kitchen, garden terrace and upper floor rooms.

      Early 19th century Grade II listed Georgian village house.

      Constructed of ironstone ashlar with slate roof, period features include open fireplaces, six panel doors, timber porch with Tuscan columns and flat roof, front door light, sash windows and window seats.

      In more recent times, Cedar House has been extended, remodelled and refurbished, all enhancing what is a lovely well-proportioned house with the expectant abundance of natural light and generous ceiling heights, synonymous with this important architectural era.

      Arranged over three floors with integral annexe, the property today offers spacious, versatile accommodation.

      One of the key improvements is the delightful kitchen/breakfast room, very much the hub of the house with a lovely aspect over the garden to the rear. Bespoke Harvey Jones kitchen with electric four oven Aga and companion, oak flooring, central island, wooden and granite work surfaces, walk in pantry, breakfast area with French doors, attractive continental style window shutters and two roof lanterns, all making for a bright, airy room.

      Formal receptions rooms include the drawing room and dining room with sash windows, window seat and open fireplaces.

      Useful boot room, ideal for wet dogs and wellington boots, cloakroom and access to the cellar. The cellar currently acts as a utility room.

      Modern white bathroom suites compliment and add to the modern feel of this lovely house.

      The top floor bedrooms are ideal for children/teenagers.

      The integral annexe has separate access from the street and could be used as an independent two bedroom cottage, but is conveniently linked to the main house via the play room.

      Again the finishes mirror those of the main house and this imaginative addition offers really useful versatile accommodation for older children, au pair /granny flat or home office.

      Attractive gardens to the front are laid to shingle with yew hedging and wrought iron pedestrian gate. A side gate for bins gives access to the rear. Here there is a lovely walled garden mainly laid to lawn with borders, magnolia and cherry trees. A raised stone terrace runs the full rear façade of the house ideal for entertaining. A brick terrace area with pergola over catches the afternoon/evening sunshine.

      There is a delightful two storey brick barn to the side currently used as garden store and has planning permission and listed building consent for conversion to a home office and store. Ref. WNS/2022/0987/FUL and WNS/2022/0140/LBC.

    Again my favourite Georgian architecture! And it has that dreamy kitchen and breakfast room spilling out into the garden.
