A charming and stylish village home with private parking and gardens.
Ford House is a charming and stylish village home, presented to a high standard with warm and comfortable interiors that perfectly complement the generous room sizes that enjoy plenty of natural light.
The house is a pleasing mix of brick and flint, Victorian red brick and more, latterly, neutrally coloured cladding, making for an attractive and interesting house externally. Carefully chosen colours, from Fenwick & Tilbrook, on windows and doors enhance the appearance and appeal.
Internally, the house has such a lovely feel, and could easily be used as a full-time home, second home or continue as a successful holiday let. An internal hall links the two main rooms of the house. The sitting room, which is really a double room with two defined living areas, is complete with wood burner together with alcove shelving, shutters and panelling, the latter a feature throughout the ground floor. French doors from this room lead out to the west-facing garden. The hub of the house is the kitchen/breakfast room, a fantastic light space with bespoke cabinets, shelving, Aga and integrated appliances. There is plenty of space for the dining table, currently a six-seater with room for more. French doors lead from the kitchen into the courtyard, open to the east and south, with outdoor dining area. The ground floor is completed by a bathroom, with roll-top bath and cabinets.
The staircase with sisal carpets leads up to the central landing linking all the bedrooms. The principal bedroom is a charming room, with east-facing window seat, good ceiling height and an en suite shower room. A further two double bedrooms, one with built-in wardrobes, are both delightful rooms with either exposed beams or panelling, and both with a pair of casement windows allowing in plenty of natural light. A bunk room, double aspect, provides a further dynamic to the first floor which is completed by a well-appointed shower room.
Despite the central village location, Ford House has the convenience of off-street parking and two distinct garden areas. The parking is to the north of the house, gravelled and with space for two cars and possibly a boat if required. To the south of the house is the paved courtyard, a wonderful area for outside entertaining and dining, with a useful outbuilding that could be utilised in many ways.
The formal garden is to the west of the house, with a paved terrace taking in the afternoon and evening sun, with a paved path bordered by box hedging leading through a lawned area to the far end of the garden. This area of garden is bordered by a mixture of hedging and brick and flint wall, with an independent pedestrian gate.
