An appealing coach house conversion adjacent to open countryside.
Tucked away behind Brockley court, The Old Cider Mill enjoys a discreet, almost hidden location, approached via a cattle grid entrance with a long shared driveway sweeping to the front of the property. With parking for numerous vehicles in addition to the detached double garage with office space over. The garage building would lend itself to conversion for a fully self-contained annex if so desired. The garage has mains water services with a cloak room and kitchenette on the ground floor and a staircase leading to two interconnecting offices above.
The main stone built barn has accommodation over two storeys and is entered directly via an attractive kitchen with central island granite work surfaces, stainless steel appliances and a 6 burner gas hob. There is a separate laundry room with plumbing for a washing machine, further storage and housing a Worcester oil fired central heating boiler. Immediately off this room is a W/C / Shower room which links through to the adjacent bedroom. This independent space would work well for an independent teenager requiring their own space with the ability to access directly to the rear garden. The open plan drawing room and dining area is a generous space, perfectly large enough for entertaining large numbers of family and friends. There is a stripped oak floor and a bespoke open stair case rising to the first floor level. At one end is an attractive stone chimney breast with alcove cupboards and an enormous wood burning stove providing heat and a striking focal point to the room. Glazed doors lead directly from this reception area to the front terrace and gravel driveway. Stepping down from the sitting room area is a good size study with conservation roof light and glazed door to the rear gardens. At the first floor there are 2 double bedrooms with open vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. These bedrooms share the family bathroom with rain head shower and separate bath. The rear garden is a particularly noteworthy feature with a large expanse of lawn bounded by stone walling on each side and enjoying a fine aspect over the adjoining farmland to the open countryside beyond. There are three raised vegetable beds in the gravelled kitchen garden, a composting and storage area with archway through to a sheltered seating area, underneath the lovely ornamental Liquidambar. An evergreen climber rambles over a fretwork screen that neatly covers the modern bunded oil tank that provides fuel for the central heating system.

Few people know of this hidden enclave of period homes, tucked away beside church and surrounded by delightful countryside. Buyers will need to follow the directions carefully to find this home located so well away from the main road at the head of a long winding country lane.David Wild
