    About this property

    • The property is a very attractive double fronted Victorian house on the edge of the village with period features and far-reaching rural views. Prior to our vendors purchasing the property it had been in the same ownership for over 100 years and since buying the property our vendors have undertaken some extensive renovation/repairs and there is potential for further expansion if required (see note below). The impressive front entrance leads into the wide spacious hall off which are the two main reception rooms, both with bay windows overlooking the front garden and views beyond. The dining room has original exposed wooden floor, wood burning stove and the main double reception room has an open fire and double doors through to the sun room. The sun room is triple aspect with lovely views and French doors out to the rear terrace. On the ground floor there is also the utility/boot room, separate wc and kitchen. The kitchen is beautifully presented with a good range of units including integrated Neff fridge, freezer, dishwasher and microwave oven and granite work tops. There is also a four oven Stoves range, a small wine fridge and a central island with breakfast bar area. On the first floor the staircase leads out onto a large central landing with access to two good sized double bedrooms, a small double bedroom, linen cupboard, family bathroom with bath and separate shower and the principal bedroom with en suite bathroom with bath and separate shower.

      The Exterior and Gardens

      The property sits back towards the rear boundary with the majority of the garden and grounds spreading out below and to the side of the property with uninterrupted rural views of the valley and hills beyond. The extensive gardens and grounds have undergone extensive landscaping over the last few years to create a more formal garden to the front with yew hedging and a lovely orchard/woodland garden to the side planted with apple, plum and pear trees and numerous specimens such as magnolias, rowan, silver birch and acers. A number of small paths meander through this idyllic area. The orchard/woodland garden can be accessed separately from the lane. At the rear of the property is a sun terrace and gate through to a courtyard area with access to a stone outbuilding with a further gate leading back to the parking area.
      The entrance to the property is off a single-track lane with Cornish stone walls to the front boundary through onto the driveway where there is plenty of parking and access to the double garage. From the parking area there is a gate to the rear entrance and access round to the very imposing front entrance.

      The double garage has power and water supply with up and over garage door and side access.

      Additional Information

      There is scope to extend into the large loft to create further accommodation and convert the stone outbuilding if required subject to planning.
