The former farmhouse enjoys a prominent position on the edge of the village, with views in a southerly direction over rolling countryside with Sundon Hills and Sharpenhoe Clappers in the distance. Dating to the 17th century, with later extensions the house provides generous family accommodation with the flexibility to provide independent annexe facilities if required. The garden and grounds are a pure delight and extend to just over a quarter of an acre.
The part glazed front door opens into the generous glazed porch allowing access to both the sitting room and family room. The sitting room is well proportioned with brick inglenook fireplace. The family room has a more cosy feel and also benefits from a fireplace. Double doors open into the dining room with bay window enjoying views to Sundon Hills. In the heart of the house is the bespoke and well equipped kitchen with granite work surfaces. Appliances include Aga Rangemaster range with six ring ceramic hob, integral Bosch fridge and dishwasher. Washing facilities are provided by enamel butler sink and separate stainless steel sink with drainer. Lying beyond the kitchen is the fitted utility room, shower room and study, which combined could easily provide a ground floor annexe. At the other end of the kitchen is a garden room with additional cloakroom.
Stairs rise to a central landing providing display areas along with cupboards. The master bedroom benefits from built-in pine wardrobes with dressing table. Bedrooms two and three have recessed wardrobes, with bedrooms four and five enjoying wonderful rolling views. All five bedrooms are served by two well equipped bathrooms, with the main bathroom having a generous tiled shower cubicle.
The house is approached over a gravelled drive edged by formal lawns with well stocked herbaceous borders. The lawn continues along the southern gable end of the house, which is enclosed by wrought iron fencing with gated access to the rear garden. At the rear of the house is a well protected paved terrace. Steps lead up to the lawn and beyond is the very productive kitchen garden and orchard with wooden shed, two timber greenhouse and coal/wood store. At the bottom of the garden is a detached double garage, workshop and timber storage shed, accessed via a rear drive with separate gravelled parking area. Beyond the fence is a public footpath which connects onto a network of footpaths and bridleways.
