This historic property dates back as far as the 13th century, an is set back off a quiet lane, and was recently a farm.
It comes with a stone barn across the courtyard from the house, and grounds of 4.5 hectares, lovely views of Cordes and the surrounding countryside.
This property is full of tradition and character. It probably dates from when the nearby medieval village of Cordes was built, and is said to have been one of the lookout posts. The current owners have carried out a lavish and fulsome renovation preserving and indeed uncovering many of the interesting period features of this unusual building.
One unusual feature is the 'horse' door at the entrance to the property. This has an unusually high arch and is said to have been so designed for entry on horseback.
Entering the house (with or without a horse) via an entrance hall with stone steps up to the next floor, and a fine stone arch leading through to the master bedroom suite (5,5 x 5m) of suitably baronial proportions and character with a new flagstone floor and exposed stone walls and beams. Through from here is a changing room / office with a door to the courtyard, and an extremely well-appointed bathroom with a Devon and Devon suite comprising an island bath, pedestal washbasin, and wc. There is also a generously proportioned tiled shower cubicle.
On the way upstairs to the kitchen there is a mezzanine utility / laundry room (3.3 x 3.8m)
The kitchen is a fine room (4.3 x 8m) with exposed stone walls, beamed ceiling, tiled floor, craftsman made fitted storage base wall units, and a central island unit / breakfast bar with polished limestone worktops, a Belfast sink, a stone fireplace and a wood burning stove. A part glazed door leads out to the pool terrace.
Through from here is a generously proportioned living / dining room (5 x 8m) with a wooden floor, a wood burning stove, and double aspect windows with lovely views.
A spiral staircase leads up to a landing with two further bedrooms and another stylish bathroom off.
Outside the buildings sit in 4.5 hectares of land with lovely views. There is a productive vegetable garden, and a pool.
