About this property

  • This mid 20th century family home, constructed of brick under a tiled roof, is light and bright, due to the principal rooms being dual-aspect, and overlooks the most delightful riverside gardens.

    From the entrance hall, the dual-aspect drawing room has an open fire and views, across the garden, down to the River Till. It opens through to the dining room, again dual-aspect, and benefitting from French doors onto the terrace and lawns beyond. A secondary hall, with separate access from the drive, offers access to the kitchen/breakfast room, with a quarry tiled floor, a range of fitted units, ceramic sink and integrated appliances, including an AEG hob and Neff double oven with “Slide and Hide” door and warming drawer. A half-glazed stable door opens into a sunny conservatory with a tiled floor, French doors into the garden and, again, views down to the River. Completing the ground floor is a double bedroom with river views, a study with French doors onto the garden, a utility room, a shower room and a cloakroom/WC.
    Upstairs are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

    The property is approached from the village road, via a five-bar gate, onto a gravel driveway in front of the garage. Behind the garage is a wood store and a pathway through to the composting area and shed.

    The stand-out feature of this property is it's idyllic, tranquil setting, with the pretty gardens running down to the River Till. Mostly laid to lawn, the garden also has deep flower borders and mature trees, along with a spectacular magnolia down towards the river-bank. At the upper end of the garden is a further area of lawn and a rose and wisteria-clad pergola adjacent to a large vegetable garden, enclosed by boundaries of mixed hedging.

    The garden is home to an abundance of riverside wildlife, such as swans, ducks, kingfishers and herons.
