A delightful family house in a peaceful location.
A period brick and flint house, with some rendered elevations, Orchard House nestles in an enviably quiet and rural position, overlooking the river and valley beyond, whilst still being on the fringes of the highly sought-after village of Broad Chalke. The current owners have undertaken a programme of renovation and improvements, resulting in a stylish family home of great charm. From the garden, the front door offers access into a hall with slate-tiled floor, also running through to the cloakroom. The adjacent sitting room/snug has a traditional brick floor and an inglenook fireplace, with brick hearth. This leads through to a large drawing room, again with inglenook fireplace, with a rustic stone hearth and a slate-tiled floor. The laundry room, with plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, has hand-built cabinetry, wooden worktops, a Belfast sink and a door to the terrace. The spectacular kitchen/living/breakfast room is triple aspect, overlooking the gardens and the countryside beyond. It has hand-built cabinetry, integrated appliances, a Belfast sink and a large kitchen island. French doors open onto the flagstone terrace. A study, with valley views, completes the ground floor.
The first floor has a dual-aspect principal bedroom, with fitted wardrobes, and an impressive en suite bathroom with a roll-top bath, as well as a large rainfall shower. The guest suite, entered via a dressing area, has a dual-aspect double bedroom and an en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room and a walk-in wardrobe, the other with fitted wardrobes and cupboards.
The position is the outstanding feature of the house, located as it is down a no-through lane in an exceptionally quiet part of the village, known as Little London. The gardens wrap around three sides of the house and slope down towards the river. Laid mainly to lawn, it has an orchard area and terraces positioned to catch the sun at different times of the day. A garden studio sits at the orchard end of the grounds. The property has a single garage and gravel parking area. There is parking for several cars off, but adjacent to, the lane. The property has beautiful rural views in every direction.
