    About this property

    • The delightful period home is Grade II listed and has been well cared for by the present owners and offers an abundance of charm and character, dating back, in parts, to the 16th century. There are exposed beams, open inglenook fireplaces and many period details dotted around the house.

      Set back from the village green itself, a path crosses the front lawn, flanked by lavender bushes on either side. A separate, gated driveway leads to the garage, which has a useful storage area above.

      The entrance door leads into the dining hall with french doors onto the garden, stairs to the first floor and access via a study area into the kitchen. The sitting room features an inglenook fireplace, a concealed additional staircase and a door to the family room at the rear of the house. This has previously been used as a ground floor bedroom as it has it's own cloakroom which was originally a bathroom - it also has direct access onto the garden.

      The kitchen / breakfast room spans the depth of the house with a range of bespoke wall and base units with integrated appliances, inglenook fireplace and direct access onto the decking and rear garden.

      At around 0.34 acres, the gardens themselves are delightful and offer a wonderful entertainment area with a decked area across the back of the house. This steps down onto the lawn, with mature shrubs and tree borders. There is a gated side access to the garage.

      A timber outbuilding has been converted into a multi purpose space that could be used as a studio, outdoor bar, or utility room. This room also has it's own WC.

    This house, for me, is literally the definition of a chocolate box cottage - set on one of the area's prettiest greens and oozing with character - well worth a visit.
