About this property

  • Folks & Crows is an attractive house with period origins, extended in 1976, providing well-planned three bedroom accommodation. At the front of the house is a delightful kitchen/breakfast room finished with cream-coloured units with wood-block-style working surfaces, Zip boiling/cooling tap, matching eye level cupboards and contrasting slate-style floor. Adjoining is a dual-aspect living room finished with a parquet floor and featuring a red-brick fireplace with log burner. Double doors open into a conservatory overlooking the rear gardens. In addition there is a dining room, boiler room and utility room on the ground floor.

    The first floor has three good-sized bedrooms. The master bedroom enjoys a vaulted ceiling, exposed wooden floor and red-brick fireplace with wood burner. Windows to the front and rear overlook the adjoining farmland and the property's grounds. There are two further bedrooms, both with double wardrobes and a bathroom.

    OUTSIDE
    The property is well screened from a quiet country lane approached over a long gravel drive providing parking for several vehicles. The plot extends to about an acre and is surrounded by farmland and protected by a bank of mature trees and shrubs. The front third of the grounds are lightly wooded and include seasonal ponds. Beyond is a “detached annexe” of timber frame construction under a slate and tiled roof, a particularly attractive building extending to about 819 sq ft and attached behind is a pitched-roof canopy with a paved terrace beneath, open shower, hot tub and sauna, an ideal area for al fresco dining and entertaining. Beyond and adjacent to the main house is a detached weatherboard barn of 707 sq ft* - please speak to one of our agents regarding this building.
