Wonderfully located character home in a picturesque village setting with large mature garden.
The Gate House is located in a conservation area in the heart of Hedgerley, a small, picturesque village surrounded by rolling countryside, yet conveniently placed for transport links to enjoy the benefits of both town and country living.
Enjoying an idyllic tucked-away setting this four bedroom property was originally the stables for Hedgerley Park and is full of charm and character with lovely countryside views.
A covered entrance porch leads into the reception hall with a cloakroom and stairs to the first floor.
The sitting/dining room is dual aspect, with built-in cabinetry and a stone fireplace with a wood burner. This room flows through into the orangery, with fabulous garden views and bi-fold doors opening on to the south facing terrace, a real sun trap creating a wonderful indoor/outdoor entertaining space.
The kitchen/breakfast/family room forms the heart of the home with a seating area, bi-fold doors to the garden and a well equipped kitchen. Just off the kitchen a fully fitted utility/boot room leads through to a good-sized study overlooking fields and benefiting from bespoke built-in cabinetry.
On the first floor are four bedrooms, three with fitted wardrobes, and a well-appointed family bathroom with a freestanding bathtub. Overlooking the garden, the principal bedroom, with a built-in cupboard, enjoys an en suite shower room.
Set in attractive gardens, The Gate House enjoys an idyllic tucked away setting on a quiet country lane with just two other houses, overlooking neighbouring fields and the valley to the front and features a beautiful south facing garden to the rear. A sunny terrace gives the ideal spot for outside dining and to enjoy the garden with steps leading to a large area of lawn with well stocked beds and borders. A further raised terrace area, leading to a detached garden studio/office affords wonderful, elevated views. The garden is beautifully private with mature trees and fencing on the boundaries.
At the end of the garden, enclosed with post and rail fencing, is a meadow/wild area and orchard with a variety of trees including apples, pears and plums. Of particular note are two productive kitchen garden areas, one attractively enclosed with espalier fruit trees. About 0.6 acres in all.
