A deceptively spacious family home with beautiful gardens and land extending to about two and a half acres, all overlooking picturesque countryside

About this property

  • Grove Cottage was once one of two adjoining period stone cottages which were cleverly combined and extended in the 1980's to form the deceptively spacious property which stands today. The resulting family home occupies an elevated position overlooking the magnificent gardens and breathtaking views beyond.

    The accommodation is arranged over two floors and extends to almost 3500 sq ft, the ground floor being a sizeable house in its own right, with a well equipped kitchen opening onto a generous dining area, leading to the spacious sitting room which has large picture windows framing the views and enhancing the natural light levels. On the same level are three good-sized bedrooms one with an en suite and a bathroom.

    The lower floor, which is accessed via two independent staircases, is on the same level as the garden and has the fourth bedroom and bathroom, sitting room and conservatory - providing plenty of space for long term guests, a dependent relative or even as a rentable unit.

    Outside there is an additional stone outbuilding with former stable, garage with car port to one side and gated off street parking.

    The south facing gardens lie to the rear of the property and are a true delight. Arranged over several levels but with a gentle gradient they start with a large flagged upper terrace with central privet parterre, steps leading down to a large lawned area dotted with specimen trees, with a wildlife pond to one side. The garden is bound by well tended hedgerows and flanked by paddocks on either side. There is also an all weather tennis court in the east paddock.

This is a real hidden gem with some incredible views.
