A four bedroom detached stone house with stunning rural views.
Situated in the village of Warninglid, backing on to open fields, Harpscot is a handsome detached four bedroom stone house of immense character, understood to have originally been the laundry house to a local estate. Sitting centrally within its plot, the house dates from 1812, with a more recent, beautiful and sympathetic extension added in 2014; it is characterised by attractive half tile-hung mellow stone elevations, with stone mullioned windows and a tiled roof. Internally, the versatile accommodation extends to approximately 2,000 square feet, with good ceiling heights and a number of both modern and period character features including plantation blinds to many of the windows, original plank doors with thumb latches, open fireplaces, and exposed stone walls.
Leading off the wide entrance hall is a cosy family room or dining room with a woodburner, and the kitchen/breakfast room, which is fitted with a good range of painted wood units, granite worktops and a two-oven Aga. Through the kitchen/breakfast room is the former laundry, now a spacious and elegant sitting room with wood flooring and a brick open fireplace with copper hood. A glazed door leads to the adjoining timber-framed conservatory, which has a stunning outlook over the gardens and adjacent fields.
Beyond the entrance hall is the rear hall providing access to a ground floor bedroom suite which has the potential to be self-contained, comprising a dual-aspect bedroom with French doors to the south-facing garden, and an adjacent wet room with modern white suite and underfloor heating. A stable door opens from the hall to the rear patio and under cover log store.
There are three further well-proportioned bedrooms on the first floor, the principal bedroom and bedrooms two with cast iron feature fireplaces. The principal bedroom has an en suite shower room; the other two bedrooms are served by a family bathroom accessed directly from the landing.
Harpscot is set back from Slaugham Lane, well-screened by mature hedgerows and trees. Lying to the south of the house is a driveway with space for two cars, ahead of the detached double garage which has twin up and over doors (one electronically operated) and rafter storage space. A gated stone pathway leads to the house.
The private and well-enclosed garden with established borders is mainly laid to lawn, stretching away to both the north and south of the house. There are three lovely seating areas: to the north, a paved terrace lies next to the conservatory; a further terrace spans the rear of the house and a patio to the south of the house is accessed via bedroom four. There is a charming 'secret garden' tucked away behind a deep shrub border to the west, with some lovely views over adjoining farmland.
In all, about 0.35 of an acre.
