    About this property

    • Ancient beams and panelling, interesting floors and huge fireplaces, fascinating nooks and crannies all feature, adding to the rich tapestry and history of this house.

      Dating back to 1571, the house was originally two buildings, separated by a narrow passage. Within a short space of time the two buildings were connected with what is now the entrance hall and staircase. The house was extended c18th century.

      The entrance hall opens to the heart of the house with all receptions rooms leading directly off. The atmospheric sitting room has panelled walls and bench (possibly repurposed from other buildings), chamfered ceiling beams, a huge Elizabethan fireplace with a possibly original spit rack above. The delightful drawing room reflects later architectural detailing, with its full height fielded panelling, leaded light windows, with unusual horizontal wooden shutters, and shallow window seats below. A wood burning stove is set within the fireplace with deep cupboards either side. The spacious study also features a fireplace with gas-fired stove within. A cloakroom is situated just off the back hall.

      The kitchen/breakfast room is situated off an inner hall and features painted wood units beneath stone worktops, with a Miele dishwasher and a walk in pantry. A further C18 fireplace houses a four door Aga with gas hob. Just off is the utility room and a porch/boot room with gardener's WC.

      The Jacobean staircase rises with a quarter turn to a galleried landing. The principal bedroom spans the depth of the house, with a huge cross beam within the vaulted ceiling, and stunning wide old hardwood boards to the floor, and a walk in wardrobe with potential for en-suite. There are four further bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room to the first floor. A second staircase drops down to the sitting room.

      Outside
      With wonderful views over the village green and cricket pitch, the architectural timeline is evident from the front of the house. There has been a settlement on the current village site for over a thousand years and Milton Lane forms part of that ancient history. The long view to the fields behind, once common grazing land, is evident from the start of the gravel driveway that sweeps round to the back of the house. The gardens, mostly to the rear of the house, include a summerhouse, fruit trees, raised beds, a snakeshead fritillary garden and stream that runs through the front garden.

      Barn
      The large barn with interesting old trusses has planning consent to convert in part to a two bedroom, two bathroom annexe, with an open plan ground floor and timber cladding to the exterior. Power and water are already connected.
