  • This impressive period home is thought to date back to the 14th Century, once forming part of the Manor of Steventon, ancient beams and panelling, interesting floors and fireplaces, fascinating nooks and crannies all feature adding to the rich tapestry of the properties history. Now the property offers flexible accommodation across two floors with various outbuildings, a mature landscaped garden and an indoor heated swimming pool.

    From the courtyard, the back door of the house opens to an inviting and welcoming kitchen/breakfast room with a four-door Aga, window seats and quarry tiled floor. Solid oak base cupboards sit beneath granite worktops with a double Belfast sink. A central island, butchers block and walk-in pantry ensures plenty of storage. The drawing room is a delight with its unusual crossed-beam ceiling, huge open fireplace that has been recently restored, tongue and groove panelling and glazed display cupboards. The wood panelled entrance hall, with its colourful chequerboard floor, houses the oak staircase which winds to the galleried landing above. Beyond is the dining room with ample entertaining space, fireplace and further is the sitting room, laundry room and home office with views onto The Causeway.

    The principal bedroom suite has a dressing room and bathroom with bath, shower and double vanity unit with marble surrounds and splashback. The guest bedroom suite also has a bathroom. There are three further characterful bedrooms, a family bathroom and small nursery. A second staircase rises again to a loft bedroom.

    Attached to the house and accessed from the ground and second floors is the magnificent timber framed barn, ideal for entertaining on a grand scale.

    Externally, to the front, the house is accessed via electric gates opening to a cobbled parking area. To the rear, old red brick walls define the different areas of the gardens and include a cottage garden, croquet lawn, orchard and vegetable garden. The Victorian style greenhouse and various brick outbuildings surround the cobbled courtyard. The walled cottage garden is creatively planted, forming the south westerly backdrop to the kitchen terrace. A further timber framed barn has been converted into a wonderful heated indoor pool, with floor to ceiling windows looking out to the gardens and adjoining changing and shower facilities.
