    About this property

    • Tyndales sits on the southwest fringes of the village and is listed as being of Architectural or Historical Interest Grade II. The oldest part of the house is believed to date back to the 16th century and in the 18th century a classic redbrick façade was added. The stunning principal elevation is typically Georgian having a central front door around which are arranged symmetrical sash windows. The property has been painstakingly refurbished throughout and provides excellent accommodation arranged on three floors. Rooms of particular note are the billiard room, dining room and sitting room with shuttered French doors leading through to a delightful conservatory. In addition, in 2018 the current owners completed a sympathetic extension creating a high-end eat-in kitchen with French doors leading out to the rear garden and an adjoining utility room.

      The property is approached over a gravelled drive to the side of the house leading to a parking area for a number of cars. Set around the parking area is a range of weatherboard outbuildings comprising garaging, former stables and a former granary comprising a gym, golf simulator and bar. To the north of the house is a further large gravelled parking area with three bay car port. The gardens are beautifully established and laid to lawn on three sides of the house. To the front, to the south, the lawn is surrounded by extensive mature shrubs with rhododendron and azaleas. To the east adjoining the conservatory is a further lawn area surrounded by further trees and shrubs and in both parts of the garden there are a variety of mature trees including horse chestnut, lime and sweet chestnut. To the north of the house is a paved courtyard area opening into the rear garden, laid to lawn and divided into two by a pathway lined by box hedges.
