About this property

  • Swallows House lies at the end of a private track with idyllic views over open fields and woodland beyond. Built in 1958, with later additions, the house now provides good sized, light filled rooms to the ground floor, with both the kitchen/breakfast room and sitting room enjoying the rural views beyond.

    A large porch opens to a central hallway with all rooms directly off. The kitchen has southerly and easterly aspects with a range of oak base and wall units beneath oak and granite worktops. Appliances include a range cooker and integrated dishwasher. A large, north facing pantry provides valuable storage space. Also directly off the kitchen is a utility/boot room with doors leading to the garage and the garden.
    The sitting room faces south and has French doors opening to the garden and a welcoming fireplace with wood burning stove. The family room offers the flexibility to be used as a separate dining room. There is also a study and cloakroom on the ground floor.

    Stair rise to a galleried landing. The principal bedroom has views over the garden and fields beyond with an en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom with a spacious eaves storage room which offers the flexibility to create a fourth bedroom or a generous principal bedroom suite with its own dressing room and bathroom.

    Photovoltaic panels provide an extensive electric supply, backed up by a Tesla battery system allowing power to be stored until required. This and the smart Mixergy hot water cylinder are both operated via an app and offer an efficient and flexible energy source representing substantial financial savings.

A single garage is attached to the house, with access into the utility room. There is also a large shed, an open bay barn and large vegetable garden.
