About this property

  • Dating back in parts to the late19th century, this wonderful family home provides flexible, well presented accommodation and in 1998 was the subject of a detailed programme of restoration. This brick-built house provides modern weatherboard elevations under a slate tiled roof with the accommodation arranged over two levels. The property is approached from the front via an entrance lobby opening to a practical dining room with stairs leading to the first floor. To the edge of the room is a fireplace with an ornate tiled and wood surround. An open arch leads to the sitting room which is a charming, light-filled room with stunning views and an attractive red-brick fireplace. The kitchen separates the conservatory, utility room and shower room and provides light-coloured eye and base level units, work surfaces and appliances. The hardwood conservatory enjoys an easterly aspect with views and access to the garden. Concluding the ground floor accommodation is a bedroom with en suite shower facilities and double doors opening to the garden.

    To the first floor there are three well proportioned bedrooms, orientated to the front of the cottage benefitting from the wonderful countryside views. There is a separate bathroom and shower room.

    Outside
    The property occupies a country lane setting and is approached to the side over a wide gated driveway leading to a substantial area for parking. A red-brick wall retains the front garden which has been planted with shrubs and flowers. To the rear of the drive is a detached double garage of pitched roof design incorporating a sizable games room. This building offers excellent opportunity to be converted and utilised as supplementary accommodation, subject to the necessary planning consents. To the rear of the games room is an enclosed terrace overlooking the adjoining parkland. The garden provides an area of land and raised beds planted with a selection of flowers and shrubs. To the side of the garden is a detached Scandinavian sauna, shower facilities and space for a gym. A particular point of interest is the historic railway carriage which has been converted and lies to the front of the garden. Extending from the rear corner of the house is a further terraced seating area enjoying a brick-built fire pit.

For me this property occupies the perfect position, close enough to the village centre but far enough away to feel like you are in the countryside. The games rooms is an added bonus and a great space for entertaining family and friends.
