    About this property

    • This lovely home sits within a discreet, almost hidden location within the former grounds of the beautiful 16th century Manor House. The house itself once formed part of The Sacred Heart Convent School and was subsequently redeveloped and returned to private residential use. A junior school continued in the grounds until 2006 and subsequently well respected Developers, Michael Wilson Ltd embarked upon a programme of restoration and renovation, creating five large homes within the grounds. Of these, number 1 is the largest, offering approaching 3000 sq ft of truly exceptional accommodation.
      The house has a wonderful sense of space and light with the comfort of near neighbours, yet retaining both privacy and independence.
      Despite its generous scale, the home is perfect for those seeking beautifully finished accommodation with manageable sized grounds. There are gardens to three sides that include a lovely south facing sun terrace and views over the orchard.

      The house is accessed via a private, gated 90 metre tree lined driveway leading to a private car port space and two further parking spaces along with a useful storage room.

      The home features intelligent lighting, security and a home automation system. There is under floor heating throughout with natural stone, wood and carpeted floors and since their purchase from the developer, the current owners have further upgraded the kitchen creating a most impressive room of great style and elegance. High ceilings add a further touch of luxury whilst all three bathrooms are of the very highest quality, the principal en suite is simply outstanding. The balcony of this bedroom is yet another lovely feature with commanding views over the garden and the adjoining communal orchard.

      Without doubt, a first class home in a prime village location yet well away from hustle and bustle and any passing traffic. A rare find indeed.
