Delightful character property with glorious gardens.
Quince Corner is believed to date back to the 17th century. Grade II listed, and built of stone under a newly thatched roof, it retains a wealth of period features which include flagstone flooring, exposed beams, open local stone fireplaces and leaded lights.
Recently modernised throughout, but cleverly retaining the past, you access the property through a weighty oak front door and into the entrance hall, laid with flagstones. From here you have access to the kitchen with hand-made base and eye level units, granite and stone work surfaces, three-oven electric 'Total Control' Aga, vaulted ceiling, oak floorboards and wood burner. There is ample room for a dining table. Adjoining is the utility room which gives access to the garage and door on to the rear garden.
The drawing room is a warm room with oak flooring and open Hornton stone fireplace with exposed stone surround.
Continuing down the hall and into the sitting room, a bright room with double aspect windows and matching stone fireplace, wood burning stove and oak flooring.
Neatly tucked behind and under the stairs is a reading area or study equipped with built in shelving and desk.
The dining room is of good proportions and laid with beautiful and sizable flagstones. A window seat is ideal for sitting back and enjoying the garden whilst an attractive feature fireplace with wrought iron surround takes centre stage.
Further on is a cloakroom and a two chambered cellar.
The first floor can be accessed via two staircases. Here you have four bedrooms, all of good proportions, with the principal bedroom benefitting from built-in wardrobes. A modern family bathroom with white bath suite, sizeable shower and stone hand basin.
Externally the property sits within about 0.7 acres. A wooden five bar gate gives way to a gravelled drive with ample parking for a number of vehicles. The gardens are maintained to a high standard with an array of flower borders, beds and terraces all planted with a variety of rare and unusual perennials along with grasses. There is a large terrace immediately adjacent to the kitchen whilst mature fruit trees dot the garden and the lawns run down to the brook.
A timber framed studio sits neatly in one corner offering viewings down the garden, ideal for use as a garden room, studio or home office. The decked area which surrounds the studio is ideal for alfresco dining.
The front garden is mainly laid to lawn and being south facing it makes the perfect sun trap. Furthermore a fenced area of land is ideal as an allotment or vegetable patch for those wanting a taste of the good life'.
