Property description

Where to begin on this wonderful tour, having come in through the front door, move into an oak beamed dining hall, with characterful walls and ceilings giving the impression of entering a stately home. From here there are doors to both the kitchen and main drawing room. The kitchen/breakfast room, like many properties, is the centre & heart of this home. Offering a range of wall and floor units, white washed ceiling beams and dual aspect windows to both side and front aspect. You will find enough space to take a table for seating four people and in addition the kitchen features the original bread oven. A stable door, takes you to a wonderful glazed boot room, currently being used as an inner hall and offering double doors onto the garden and patio terrace. The drawing room is located off the dining hall and is a wonderfully snug winter room' with beamed walls and ceiling and a log burning stove that is inset into the large original inglenook fireplace. There is also a window to front aspect and the door from the drawing room, leads to the study. Here you will find a wealth of bookshelves, space for a large desk and an additional woodburning stove. From the study is a door to what is currently used as a music room, but would make the perfect reception room for enjoying summer days & nights. Having double doors opening onto the patio and wonderful landscaped garden.

Take the stairs to the first floor and enter the principal bedroom suite. Having a large bedroom with window to front aspect and vaulted beamed ceiling, leading to a dressing room and shower room. The dressing room has double doors opening onto a Juliette balcony, providing wonderful views over the garden and countryside. This room is large enough to take a sofa bed, should you need the space for occasional guests.

In addition you will find a second bedroom (again a double) and the third bedroom is currently used as a study, being a smaller double bedroom, but with beamed wall and window to front aspect. In all this is a wonderful family home and I can genuinely recommend you make contact to arrange a viewing. You will not be disappointed!


The picket fence to the front of the property abuts the manicured hedge, the rear garden is arranged in four sections. You have a large patio area which opens up onto a manicured lawn, then through the garden gate to the meadow garden, offering wild flowers such as, oxeye daises and poppies, heaven to the visiting honey bees and other wildlife. This garden is not only a sanctuary for wildlife, but also to rest and recuperate at the end of a busy day. The large and productive vegetable patch with green housing, and a polytunnel, and a large separately fenced area that previously housed chickens. There are ample log-stores and several brick outhouses.
