A delightful contemporary village home
Designed and built by the current owners, Sailor's Rest was completed in 2018. Great care has been taken to ensure that the character of the property blends in with its surroundings and that the house is as energy efficient as possible. Situated on a leafy country lane, the house is approached by a smart gated entrance which leads to parking at the front of the house. A timber porch frames the front door which opens to a vestibule and then into a welcoming hall. While Sailor's Rest has lots of charming traditional features, its interior is characterised by a wonderfully bright, contemporary and open plan feel. The hall is open to both the sitting room and the dining kitchen. With a dining table as well as a large central island and a U-shaped run of fitted units, the kitchen is comfortable, sociable and very definitely the hub of the house. Double doors open from both the kitchen and the sitting room to decking outside. Overlooking the front of the house is a double bedroom which is currently used as an office. There is a bathroom with shower beside it. Behind the kitchen is the plant room which houses the controls for the heat recovery and ventilation system, the ground source heat pump and the solar panels. There is also a utility/boot room with a back door.
On the first floor the bright landing gives access to all the bedrooms. The principal bedroom suite has a bathroom and a Juliet balcony overlooking the open fields. Two further double bedrooms have pretty dormer windows and en suite shower rooms. The eaves in both of these rooms provide ample storage.
The garden at Sailor's Rest is a particular feature of the property and has been beautifully landscaped around the house. Reclaimed local stone has been used to create raised borders and there is also a vegetable garden and a decked area for sitting out in good weather.
The integral single garage is attached to the house and is fitted with light and power and a range of storage cupboards. Subject to obtaining the relevant permissions there is potential to convert it into additional accommodation.
Separate garage/ studio
At the rear of the garden is an attractive single garage which would also make a wonderful studio, workshop or home office depending on a buyer's requirements.
