About this property

  • A Scandia-Hus© design, built to the current owners' specification in 2006 to replace their previous home on the same site. The Lantern House is a well-designed family home, in the heart of the village, with a delightful garden.

    The generous and well-balanced proportions become apparent on entering the spacious reception hall. Two living rooms, the family room at the front and the sitting room overlooking the rear garden, are complemented by the wonderful kitchen with a garden room that provides the perfect south-facing dining area.

    A study and utility room complete the ground floor and upstairs four well-appointed double bedrooms, two of which with en suite shower rooms, and all featuring built-in wardrobes, offer a choice of attractive outlooks to the front and the rear.

    The Lantern House has much to recommend it. Zoned underfloor heating throughout, an integrated heat recovery system and triple glazing for efficiency. Generous family living space, plus a well-specified and recently re-fitted kitchen with an AGA, Neff oven and hob and an impressive island unit. And, of course, its village centre setting with a secluded and well-tended garden surrounding the property.

I first saw this property during construction, 14 years ago, and I was really impressed with the design and attention to detail. For me, it continues to make this impression today.
