About this property

  • Thimble Hall is not listed and offers some excellent accommodation, with good ceiling heights throughout. The 2014 extension includes a fabulous kitchen/breakfast/family room which is vaulted over the family area, with bi-fold doors leading to the secluded terrace. The kitchen comes with a comprehensive range of fitted units with work surfaces over, and a large island with induction hob and breakfast bar is a real focal point. A log burner makes for a particularly comfortable living space; very much the hub of the house. There is also a rear laundry room, with boot room, a cloakroom and back door to the gravelled parking area.

    The large reception hall makes a great first impression and the study/snug a great space for everyday living and relaxing. The double reception room, which could easily work as a dining room and drawing room is a great set up, being divided by the open fire, it is a perfect space for formal occasions. French doors lead to the sheltered terrace which also links across to the kitchen/family room. All reception rooms enjoy great views out over neighbouring farmland.

    There are six bedrooms at first floor level, of which the principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom and panoramic views. The main guest bedroom has an en suite shower room. The four remaining bedrooms are serviced by a family bathroom. Notably, the bedrooms are configured to provide scope for two to be knocked into one if a larger bedroom was preferred. The overall feel within the property is that the house really works well in its layout and as a family home is really hard to beat.

    The gardens off the kitchen/breakfast room provide a private and sheltered setting for outdoor entertaining and steps rise up to the open lawns which provide a great backdrop. A more wooded section has been used for pigs and chickens to roam and is an ideal screening and recreation area. There is also a timber framed barn with access from the lane. At the front, the property is approached via a gravel drive which provides ample parking for numerous vehicles as well as access to the triple garaging. Paths lead down through the kitchen garden to open lawns which provide great space for outdoor sports. Further woodland runs down to the far boundary.

    In summary, Thimble Hall is a fine home and surrounded by rolling countryside offering outstanding views and an exceptional lifestyle opportunity.
