    About this property

    • Set back from the adjacent village green, The Lion is situated in a conservation area of the village with views towards the church. With late Victorian origins, the property bears striking hall mark features of the era including attractive patterned brickwork, half-hung tiling and decorative barge boards. Formerly a village pub, believed to have been converted in 2000s', the property is not listed. Having been extended in 2015, it has since extensively further upgraded by the current owners. With the feeling of light and space enhanced by high ceilings and large windows, accommodation flows well. The sitting and dining rooms lie either side of the reception hall, and there is an attractive orangery with double doors opening to the rear courtyard garden. The stylish kitchen/breakfast room has been redesigned by Griggs & MacKay, with granite work surfaces, electric Everhot range oven, pantry cupboard, and French doors to the terrace. Also on the ground floor is a play room, a large boot/utility room and a useful guest bedroom with ensuite shower, which could alternatively be used as a study. On the first floor the principal bedroom enjoys views over the village green and has an ensuite shower room. There are four further bedrooms, one with a mezzanine area, and a family bathroom.

      Outside, a useful timber outbuilding with light, power and internet, is ideal for working from home. The driveway provides gravelled parking for several cars, where there is an electric car charger. Attractive gardens surrounding the property include a rear terrace, an Astroturf area ideal as an all-weather play area, specimen trees including mature oak, and raised vegetable beds and fruit cages.
