    About this property

    • Dating from 1932 and is offered for sale for the first time in almost 40 years, this extended, reconfigured and spacious modern house has a lovely flow and feel, with wonderful views of, and over, the gardens and village to farmland.

      The entrance porch and hallway access the two formal reception rooms and the full-width family dining kitchen, which line the south face of the entire house, with French doors from the drawing room and kitchen to the garden terrace. A utility, cloakroom and fitted office suite are also accessed from the kitchen.

      The first floor bedrooms are all large, well-proportioned doubles, accessed from a generous study/landing corridor. The principal bedroom suite incorporates a dressing room and full suite en suite bathroom. A modern wet room is conveniently placed for bedrooms three, four and five, whilst the full-suite family bathroom is alongside bedroom two. Bedrooms two and three both have fitted wardrobes.

      The gardens are a delight and extend to about 1.1 acres. With sweeping lawns that lead past mature trees to the tennis court and orchard at the southern end of the garden, a woodland spinney and kitchen gardens adjoin the house to east and west. Perfectly oriented for tracking sunshine, with a high degree of privacy, the gardens incorporate a summer house/workroom, with electricity, as well as a WWII air raid shelter, beneath a large rockery bed.

    I love this house. It feels rural with its amazing gardens, farmland views and privacy, and yet it is within a great village, with an active community, The Horseshoe public house, a personal favourite, and lovely rural and woodland walks, with Toft Golf Club just over a mile away.
