Local information

  • The Croft is a wonderful family home sitting in a delightful, elevated position enjoying views out over the beautiful gardens and grounds. Inside, the accommodation flows incredibly well whilst benefiting from grand proportions and period features, the inviting garden room is perfect for welcoming guests and in turn leads into the entrance hallway in the centre of the home. To the right are two excellent south facing, double aspect reception rooms both with feature fireplaces and pretty bay windows capturing the wonderful outlook over the formal gardens.
  • The kitchen/dining room is clearly the heart of the home and runs the full depth of the property, this provides an abundance of natural light and is great for family life or entertaining. The kitchen itself has a wide range of wall, base and drawer units in a shaker style with a central island and Aga. Adjacent to the kitchen is an incredibly useful utility room with access to outside and further accommodation on the ground floor includes a study with views over the paddock, cloakroom and gardener's toilet with shower.
  • An impressive staircase rises to the first floor landing where there are five well-proportioned bedrooms and three bathrooms in total. Bedroom one is of particular interest as it has the most wonderful outlook over the paddock and gardens via the two bay windows. Bedroom two and three also enjoy a similar outlook respectively whilst bedroom five has access into valuable storage space in the eaves.
  • Gardens and Grounds
  • Outside does not disappoint and has clearly been a labour of love. The south facing veranda is perfectly placed to make the most of the formal gardens with the terrace area providing a wonderful spot for alfresco dining. The south facing garden is mostly laid to lawn whilst benefiting from numerous established borders and trees providing colour all year round. There is a pretty path meandering through the garden with a pergola heading towards the fruitful vegetable garden and beyond to one of two paddocks, this particular space has been used for a private wedding/party in the past and is a very special and unique part of the overall grounds. A further paddock is located to the east of the house and there is a orchard in front of the outbuildings. To the front, the approach is impressive with a driveway leading to an ample parking area alongside a patio area and greenhouse.
  • There is a vast number of outbuildings including two all-important offices - perfect for working from home, a music room, two workshops, car port and store. There is a detached double garage with stairs leading to a first floor studio, again providing a superb space for a home office if required.
  • In total the land equates to approximately 3.54 acres.
