About this property

  • An elegant stone built period property set within mature grounds of approximately 0.3 acre towards the edge of the village.

    Internal the ground floor accommodation is both generous and flexible to suit a variety of requirements.

    There are a wealth of period features including open fireplaces, exposed stone, brick and timber, flagstone flooring and exposed floor boards.

    The hub of the house is undoubtedly the kitchen/breakfast room with its aspect out onto the gardens to the rear. Fitted with an Everhot four oven range and Belfast style sink, there are a range of fitted units and central island.

    Step up from the kitchen into a well-appointed utility room where there is a fitted sink unit and additional storage. There is also a cloakroom (formerly a shower room which could be re-instated. Beyond is a gym with exposed stone walls, vaulted ceiling, wood burning stove and has French doors that open onto the gardens to rear. This room, together with the utility and cloakroom, lends itself to being separated from the main house and used as self-contained accommodation or working from home.

    The dining room, is warm and inviting, has weathered flagstone floors, French doors opening onto the gardens and features exposed red brick chimney breast fitted with a wood burning stove.

    Beyond is a study which leads through to the sitting room. Both these rooms have French doors that open onto the gardens. The sitting room is also fitted with a wood burning stove.

    To the front of the property, there is a snug or further study and family room. The family room is laid with attractive contrasting quarry tiles and offers access to a useful cellar space.

    The principal bedroom enjoys a dual aspect, thereby providing a light and airy feel and en suite shower room.

    At the far end of the property, the generous guest bedroom also commands views of the gardens and surrounding countryside and has its own en-suite shower room. In addition to this, there are two further double bedrooms, each with built in cupboard space.

    The family bathroom to the front of the first floor is a blend of period and contemporary finishes with a free standing roll top bath and separate shower cubicle with tiled surround.

    Externally, the property occupies a plot of approximately 0.3 acre with gardens that face south-west. Mainly laid to lawn, the plot is flanked by an array of mature trees which provide a good degree of privacy. There is a paved seating area which extends the full width of the property, from where steps lead onto a gravel path which meanders across the garden to a covered seating and entertaining area with fire pit.

    There is off road parking, as well as secure gated driveway parking behind. Beyond is a detached garage and store with power and light connected.

I love the flow of the ground floor accommodation, as well as a gym/ home office at a time when working from home has never been so sought after.
