Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An enchanting Grade II listed family house of great character set in a charming walled gardens and offering very well presented and particularly spacious accommodation that flows beautifully and is enriched with many lovely original period features. The house which is believed to date from the early 17th Century is one of the oldest properties in the village and while the property has been tastefully updated and improved in recent years, great care has been taken to complement the delights of the house so creating a fabulous family home.

An oak front door opens to a gabled porch that in turn leads to a very appealing panelled entrance hall with tessellated floor. The double aspect drawing room is outstanding with exposed chamfered beams and pillars and a magnificent original fireplace with dressed stone piers and bressumer. A very well proportioned dining room is arranged off the hall with oak floors, original wall panelling, an open fireplace, exposed stonework, beams and a pillar. A very comfortable family room or large study completes the reception rooms with oak floors that lead through from the dining room, further exposed stonework, beams and an open fireplace.

An inner hall leads from the family room to a superb kitchen-breakfast room that is light and airy having almost wall to wall glazing overlooking the main gardens and a full range of recently installed wall and floor cupboards with extensive granite work surfaces. A utility room adjoins the kitchen and a cloakroom-shower room is accessed from the inner hall.

On the first floor, the accommodation is just as spacious with five double bedrooms including an exceptional 19’2” x 17’10” double aspect principal bedroom with a high part vaulted ceiling and a shower room en suite. The second bedroom at 16’10” x 15’10” is again very comfortable and offers a dressing area that opens to an en suite bathroom. The remaining three bedrooms share a family bathroom.
The walled gardens are yet another feature of this fine property and are very extensive with beautiful formal gardens to the front having Box topiary and lawns screened by substantial stone walls. A gate leads through a further stone wall from the front garden to the main gardens that enjoy a southerly and south westerly aspect and are framed again by high natural stone walls with an excellent selection of specimen shrubs.
