    About this property

    • The property provides spacious and flexible accommodation having been extensively renovated and extended in recent years, following conversion from two barns in 1996. The current owners have thoughtfully created a flexible living space, part of which could be used as a separate single storey annexe, without compromising the substantial living space of the main house.

      The use of double height glazed walls, bi-fold and French doors throughout the property floods all rooms with natural light and opens the house on all sides to the garden and terraces.
      The large welcoming kitchen/breakfast room with its four oven Aga, French doors to both sides of the house and spiral staircase, is at the heart of the house. A corridor leads to the generously proportioned dining room and a cloakroom opening to the garden room/ hallway. Directly off the hall is the charming triple aspect sitting room with a fireplace and wood burning stove, and the snug.

      The main staircase to the galleried landing connects to all bedrooms. The principal bedroom suite is of particular note with its walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom. Three further bedrooms and the family bathroom are off the landing. Two further guest bedrooms, both with en suite shower rooms, are at the end of the landing easily accessed independently via the spiral staircase.

      Off the kitchen, the single storey barn provides an entrance hall/boot room, large utility room, shower room, family room and office. The latter, both with bi-fold doors, opening to the south/westerly facing terrace.

      The property is accessed via a gravel driveway with ample parking. A three bay garage with power and water connected also has a large storage room above, which would lend itself to conversion to separate living accommodation, subject to planning. The interesting topography of the gardens offers a variety of mature trees, established borders, large lawns, terraces, a fire pit and a paddock, all of which make for a wonderful outside space for families and friends to enjoy. In all about three acres.

      Mains water and electric are connected. Private drainage. LPG heating. Ultrafast Gigaclear Fibre broadband.
