    About this property

    • The Old Coach House, as its name implies, is a charming coach house conversion of Victorian origins. Situated in the heart of this most sought after village and within the Conservation Area, its gardens are level and enclosed and offer considerable privacy.

      The ground floor flows of the central entrance porch and hall to a lovely sitting room with wood burning stove and access onto a decked area and garden beyond; study ideal for working from home and a well-appointed kitchen and breakfast room with electric kitchen range, granite work surfaces and breakfast bar. From here there is access onto a decked area, ideal for summer entertaining and to the garden beyond. There has been attention throughout to modern day fittings particularly the kitchen, bath/shower rooms and double glazing.

      On the first floor is a spacious principal bedroom with en suite shower room, as well as three further bedrooms and family bath/shower room.

      Bedroom two has a lovely deep window board where you can happily sit yourself and take in the views over the garden and the village church beyond.

      The house is set back from the road down a driveway that leads to a parking area and double garage beyond. The garage offers scope for alteration/linking to the house to provide additional accommodation, subject to the relevant consents. Please note planning permission was granted for a new garage with a bedroom and rear extension in March 2008 (Ref 07/02694/F).

      To the front is a delightfully private courtyard ideal for entertaining or a secure area for dog. The main garden is to the rear, predominately laid to lawn, enclosed by hedging with a number of flowering beds and borders. Centrally set is a lovely outdoor heated swimming pool with pool house and summerhouse. There is also a wood store, garden store and greenhouse.

      This is lovely village living, yet remarkably private. A hidden gem, tucked away from this thriving village.

      In all about 0.5 acres.
