Impressive family house with 5 acres, stables and ancillary home office accommodation
The Old Orchard is an exceptional example of a modern country residence, surrounded by its own stunning grounds including equestrian facilities, garden and a paddock.
The property is of a modern red-brick construction and has been extended and refurbished to create stunning interiors, only eclipsed by its expansive south-facing gardens.
Internally the property is beautifully presented in a contemporary style, with large windows, high ceilings and neutral interiors allowing for excellent natural light throughout. Great attention to detail has been paid to the finish, including oak-framed sliding doors to all the reception rooms and the master bedroom which offer views of the garden.
The property is entered by an inviting entrance hall leading to a selection of very generously proportioned reception rooms, comprising a sitting room, family room and dining room, plus a separate study. The family accommodation is equally spacious, featuring a sociable kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and wc.
The kitchen/breakfast room is a particular highlight, with extensive painted cabinetry and a variety of appliances including a range cooker.
The breakfast room provides a delightful space for dining as a family and is warmed by a wood-burning stove.
On the first floor, the master bedroom benefits from a fitted dressing room and en suite bathroom. It also has a large oak framed balcony offering stunning views of the garden, paddock, fields and woodland beyond. There are a further four double bedrooms, two of which are ensuite, and a family shower room.
Surrounded by expansive grounds in excess of 5 acres the property has excellent scope for equestrian pursuits or further leisure amenities. The property is approached by a very spacious gravel driveway with parking for a number of cars, in addition to two covered spaces within a detached oak framed car port with two secure storage rooms for garden equipment and machinery. On the first floor, accessed by a wooden exterior staircase, is a fitted office space with an en suite bathroom which offers potential for studio accommodation. The vast south-facing gardens of 1.25 acres include a large lawn, paved patio and a stunning oak framed covered dining area, all enclosed by a mix of tall hedges and traditional post and rail fencing.
At the edge of the garden is a stable block with four looseboxes, two barns, a tack room and feed store, leading to a paddock, about 4 acres.
