About this property

  • A sympathetically extended and superbly presented detached property dating back to 1733. Since 2016 the property has undergone extensive architectural remodelling and a two-storey extension to offer an excellent family home with flexible living space. The property backs onto open farmland to the rear with attractive gardens, ample parking and detached double garage. The garage has been converted to provide a large storage space at the front followed by self-contained home office and a gym with double doors leading out to the garden as well as a large walk-in shower and cloakroom. This could be used as a guest suite, or easily converted into an annex.

    The property offers an excellent mix of its original character features yet is finished to the highest modern standard. A light and airy reception area can be found as you enter the property where you will find the solid oak staircase leading to the first floor. To the left is the main reception room, which has double doors leading onto the garden. The breakfast area has ceramic tiled flooring and an oak breakfast bar. From here you enter the kitchen, which has granite work surfaces and integrated appliances, including a large induction hob with double oven and grill. There is a second reception room with fireplace, a cloakroom, and steps down to the cellar/wine store, which has been fully tanked and has plumbing for utility appliances. On the first floor the newly-built main bedroom overlooks the garden and has French doors with a Juliet balcony. There is a well-designed dressing area and an en-suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
    The gardens have been landscaped, laid mainly to lawn with raised flower and shrub borders and a variety of mature trees, shrubs and a vegetable patch.
