    Little Owls Farm offers particularly bright and spacious accommodation, with a versatile layout that could be arranged to suit a variety of buyer's needs.

    A UPVC front door with leaded glazed panels opens into the entrance hall with guest cloakroom. The sitting room has a wall mounted flame effect fire, and double aspect windows including French doors to the terrace and overlooking the paddock.

    The generous kitchen/ dining room is fitted with an extensive range of units in cream with integrated appliances including a ceramic hob with extractor hood over, double oven, dishwasher, microwave, fridge and freezer. The dining area has space for a large table and chairs and there is an understairs broom cupboard. French doors open into the impressive family room with vaulted ceiling, and triple aspect picture windows and sliding patio doors all enjoying spectacular views across farmland

    Leading off the kitchen is a utility room with fitted units including plumbing and space for washer and dryer, and then a rear hall/ boot room with doors to the drive, rear terrace and garage.

    Also on the ground floor is a bedroom/ study with en suite shower room having shower, basin and WC.

    From the hall, a staircase with oak balustrade leads up to the first floor landing. The main bedroom has an excellent range of fitted wardrobes and drawers along one wall, and views over the paddock, bedroom 2 has a range of built-in wardrobes, with matching bedside chests, and an en suite shower room, bedrooms 3 has built in wardrobes and dressing table, and the spacious family bathroom has a bath with shower over, plus a basin with an excellent range of storage under.

    The house is approached over a shared private lane. A sweeping in and out shingle driveway with an extensive parking area leads to both front and back doors and to the Double Garage. This has twin electrically operated roller shutter doors, power and light, cupboard housing the Heat Pump equipment. A staircase leads up to a useful office/ playroom. The garage has underfloor heating on the ground floor and offers potential for conversion to an annexe, subject of course to any necessary permissions being obtained. The gardens and grounds extend to approximately 1.02 acres, and adjoin open farmland on the rear boundary providing lovely open views. The garden at the front is planted with an attractive variety of shrubs and trees. A large Indian sandstone paved terrace wraps around the south and west of the house, with a further terrace at the rear of the garage, and provides the perfect area for outdoor entertaining on a grand scale. The remainder of the garden is lawned and beyond is a small paddock bounded by post and rail fencing with a timber stable block.

I think it's excellent that the owners have future-proofed the house by installing a ground source heat pump, something the new owners will really benefit from
