About this property

  • Approached via double gates, this is an exceptional period property which sits centrally in its plot of around one acre, overlooking the ruins of a 12th century castle which provides a most atmospheric backdrop. It is within a conservation area and located away from the beaten track.

    A handsome double fronted house, dating from the 18th Century with later additions, the property offers generous living accommodation over two floors. It was renovated several years ago, with an emphasis on retaining the character feel, but also satisfying modern day requirements.

    The main sitting room is the heart of the house and boasts bi-fold doors out to the garden and a central chimney breast featuring a double sided wood-burning stove. There is also a study, a separate dining room (again with bi-fold doors) and a most impressive conservatory with views of the rear garden. The kitchen is stylishly fitted with white units offering clean lines with integral appliances and a great deal of storage space. There is a well fitted and useful adjoining utility room, beyond which is a downstairs cloakroom. The cellar in recent years has been used as a study, effectively a usable room.

    On the first floor, the principal bedroom has not only an en suite shower room, but also double doors out to a balcony from which there are far-reaching views. The three further bedrooms are served by the family bathroom. Both the principal bedroom and the second room benefit from bespoke wardrobes.

    The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with some mature hedging and a variety of trees including fruit trees. The driveway offers parking for several cars and there is a timber outbuilding to the side of the property and a shed in the rear garden.

It is rather magical looking at the ruins of a castle from the seclusion of your own private garden, very special.
