About this property

  • Built circa 1980, Crick Hollow is a beautifully presented, detached property with attractive render and timber clad elevations under a clay tile roof. It underwent extensive renovation and extension in 2005 and the garden room to the rear was added in 2014. The house now offers substantial, flexible family accommodation in excess of 3,700 sq ft.

    The welcoming, spacious reception hall is light and bright with a vaulted ceiling and wood flooring. The main reception rooms include a double aspect sitting room with an open fireplace housing a wood burning stove, a study and a cosy snug. The exceptional kitchen/dining room is the heart of the home with a range of painted wall and floor units with a large central island and breakfast bar. Integrated appliances include a double oven, induction hob with extractor above, dishwasher, microwave/combination oven and drinks fridge. This room is double aspect with a large dining area which then opens to the wonderful garden room which has a vaulted ceiling and windows to both sides and bi-fold doors fully opening to the garden. This later addition creates the perfect space to enjoy the pretty garden and surroundings, while being very much part of the activity of the home.

    To the first floor, the principal bedroom suite comprises a bedroom with large full height window overlooking the rear garden, en suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. There is a guest bedroom with en suite shower room, two further bedrooms, with fitted wardrobes, which share a Jack and Jill bathroom and a further shower room. To the second floor is the fifth bedroom and storage.

    Attached to the main house and accessed externally is a lovely ground floor annexe room comprising open plan living/bedroom with kitchen area and a separate shower room. The annex has been used in the past as an office, au pair accommodation and now as a successful Air B'n'B let.

    The property is accessed from the lane via a drive opening to the gravel parking and turning circle to the front of the house and attached single garage and car port. The garden is private with hedging to the front and landscaped with a raised bed running along the front of the house, filled with mature shrubs, climbers and perennials. The rear garden is laid mainly to lawn with well- stocked, large flower beds and is secluded with trees and hedging to the boundaries. Bi-fold doors open to a paved terrace area for sitting to enjoy the peaceful setting. A natural stream runs along the southern boundary of the property and this adds enormously to the charm of the landscape. Two small bridges lead over it to a gravel path and there are flowerbeds alongside, planted with a variety of perennial plants suited to the environment to provide interest throughout the year. Also included is a useful greenhouse.

What I love about this village is that it is tucked away and rural but has a great community and a wonderful pub!
