    About this property

    • This substantial home of close to 3,000 sq ft dates from 1870 and is built of stone elevations beneath a thatched roof. It is filled with character typical of a house of this age, including beamed ceilings and two fabulous Inglenook fireplaces. Pretty gardens wrap around the house, which has a delightful rural outlook, plenty of outbuildings/sheds and a swimming pool.
      The property requires some updating. The front door leads to an entrance hallway with a staircase, door to a WC and way through to the conservatory. The conservatory was added in c.2010 and offers delightful views out over the side and front garden. The study is a substantial sized, duel aspect room with a superb inglenook fireplace. The study connects through to the dining room which has another beautiful fireplace, door to the side/rear garden, with further doorways through to the sitting room and kitchen.

      The kitchen is fitted with a range of floor and wall units, worksurfaces, sink and drainer, electric hob, double chest oven, integral fridge/freezer and space for a dishwasher. The sitting room is a large triple aspect room with wood flooring, large inglenook fireplace, built in shelving and cupboard and second staircase to the first floor.

      The first floor is accessed by two separate staircases and could be sectioned off from each other to create two independent first floor living areas (subject to any required consents). The principal bedroom has built in wardrobes and opens onto the Jack and Jill bathroom. This bathroom is dual aspect with one of the best views from the property, across neighbouring paddocks. The bathroom connects back to the landing. There are two further double bedrooms on the first floor, both with built in wardrobes, and a further shower room. From the landing is another staircase leading up to the fourth bedroom, built in to the roof space.

      Outside
      The tarmac driveway leading to the garage and one of the sheds provides plenty of off-road parking and from here a path leads on to the entrance hall, past two greenhouses. To the rear is an outdoor swimming pool and pool house, a large lawned area with deep herbaceous borders and mature trees bounding the property. To the front is another large lawned area. In total the property extends to about 0.6 acres.

    Landshire is a really warm, welcoming home. I love the charming character and period features especially the fireplaces. Also the views outlook across open countryside.
