A 15th century period house with beautiful gardens for entertaining
The Dower House is listed as being of Architectural or Historical Interest Grade II and is believed to date from the 15th century with later alterations and additions. Constructed of timber frame under a mainly tiled roof, the period house provides good accommodation. Of particular note on the ground floor are the drawing room, which has a large bay window framing the view over the village down to the garden, the dining room and the modern open plan kitchen/breakfast room, which has French doors opening out onto the terrace. On the first floor are five bedrooms, the majority facing south over the gardens, two bathrooms and a shower room. Part of the property could be used as a self-contained annexe (with independent boiler) with a separate staircase to the first floor. There are interconnecting doors with the main house and a separate access, and therefore can be incorporated into the house or used as an annexe.
To the side of the house is a parking area with gates opening into the rear garden with a brick coach house (incorporating a garage) and storage area to the side. The beautiful south-facing enclosed gardens are terraced on three levels, with steps down from the terrace adjoining the house. Laid to lawn with gravel paths around the perimeter steps lead from terrace to terrace, with an abundance of flowers, herbaceous borders, shrubs and a wide variety of trees.
