Delightful family home set in undulating countryside.
This substantial country residence is believed to date back to the Victorian era and has been sympathetically renovated and updated to an exceptionally high standard throughout, now providing spacious family accommodation. The house is set back from the road and approached across a gravelled drive which leads to a parking and turning area alongside the house. Internally the property offers well proportioned rooms, high ceilings, wooden flooring, exposed beams as well as providing state of the art modern conveniences for everyday living. The house is in very good condition throughout and is light and bright with large windows with all window frames having been replaced 5 years ago. The ground floor consists of an entrance hall, giving access to a substantial open plan light filled sitting room/dining room which benefits from a wood burning stove and two sets of French doors out on to the terrace. A study lies just off the dining room. The snug, with wood burning stove can also be accessed from the entrance hall and the breakfast room, which has a charming bay window with French doors leading out to the terrace, perfect for al fresco dining. The Aga kitchen enjoys a Jotul wood burning stove and is fitted with base and wall mounted units, granite work tops and a separate Bosch oven. A separate shelved larder is accessed off the hall and the utility/boot room lies off the kitchen. The first floor is reached via an impressive wooden staircase with views over the front of the property. The substantial master bedroom has a triple aspect and large fitted wardrobes. There are a further four bedrooms, dressing/store room and three bathrooms.
The grounds extend to around 3.1 acres and are mainly laid to lawn. To the rear of the house is a terraced area which has superb views across the grounds. The gardens provide a number of mature specimen trees which provide the property with a high degree of privacy and seclusion. There is a delightful arbor with an established trailing wisteria, gravel paths and a box parterre beyond which lies the all weather Astro tennis court which was newly re-laid 3 years ago, greenhouse and kitchen garden. There are a also series of three outbuildings with the property screened by a mature hedge and to the top of the garden there is a large garden store with both water and electricity supplied currently used for garden machinery. The garage can be accessed from the front of the property and from inside the house, as can the studio.

A real property feature are the light filled, well proportioned rooms which open out via French doors onto the terrace during the summer months.Peter Ogilvie
