About this property

  • The Coach House is an impressive family home with generous proportions throughout and has been designed to offer light and airy accommodation, orientated to take advantage of views over the open countryside and its stunning gardens.

    A storm porch covers the entrance door which opens into a spacious hallway, finished with engineered oak floors which also feature in the reception rooms. An oak staircase rises to a galleried landing and is lit by electrically-operated roof vents. Off the hallway is a spacious cloakroom with enough area to be converted to a shower room should the facility be required.

    At the rear of the house the living room has bi-fold doors providing a lovely outlook over the property's gardens. The room features a textured stone fireplace including wood-burner. Adjacent is a dual aspect separate dining room, again with bi-fold doors and at the front of the house is a family room with a cassette-style hole-in-wall fireplace with mantle over. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of granite work surfaces with contrasting Shaker-style units beneath and includes an extensive range of Neff appliances, a bank of ovens, a microwave, a warming drawer, a dishwasher and a touch-control induction hob. The room also features pull-out larders and a larder-style fridge with a water cooler and ice maker. Bi-fold doors open from the kitchen on to a raised deck covered with a glazed verandah, ideal for al fresco dining and providing lovely views over the garden.
