An exceptional Grade II Listed family house in a stunning setting on the edge of the village with 5 acres and 225m frontage and fishing rights along the Pill Hill Brook.
The property is an exceptional Grade II Listed family house situated within beautiful grounds of about five acres with 225m of river frontage with single bank fishing rights along the Pill Hill Brook. The property, which has been the subject of significant upgrading and extension over the years, also had the thatch replaced in 2019.
The accommodation, which is extensive, is arranged over two floors extending in all to approximately 3100 sq ft, with significant character and great period charm. The property boasts four reception rooms including a beautiful drawing room with its large open fireplace with stone surround and exposed timbers. The living room is an impressive large, light and airy room. There is a separate family room and study. The kitchen/breakfast room is of a very good size and opens into a large family/breakfast area. There is also a garden room, timber framed with glazed elevations which overlooks the gardens towards both the pond and river. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a utility/cloakroom, two bedrooms and a ground floor shower room.
On the first floor there is a large master bedroom with en suite bathroom, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The property is approached through a 5-bar gate off the village lane into a large gravelled driveway providing a significant amount of parking. The gardens themselves lie to the south-east of the cottage and are mainly laid to lawn surrounded by trees and high hedging. There is a split level flagstone terrace to the side of the cottage which is south-facing.
One of the significant features to the gardens is the attractive river and boardwalk. A footbridge leads to a small island with a large pond, with the boardwalk continuing around either side onto the river's edge. Open access at one end leads on to a lovely open meadow with mature trees and hedging to the boundaries. There are attractive areas to sit and fish along the river bank.
There is a heated swimming pool approximately 12m long with paved surround and small pool house. The pool area itself is fully enclosed on all sides by fencing and bordered with trees and shrubs. Beyond the swimming pool is a tennis court and the guest annexe.
The guest annexe is of timber clad construction, open plan and double aspect, comprising a living room/bedroom with kitchenette and shower room.
