Fitted to a very high specification with bespoke units offering plenty of storage, topped with Avonite work surfaces with a one and a half sink inset and stylish mixer tap over, in addition to a cream Smeg dishwasher and cream Smeg fridge (both included in the sale). The central feature point however, is the beautiful cream Aga with double oven and twin warming plates, operated via an electric intelligent management system. A central island offers a great place to prepare food whilst still socializing, also having yet more storage beneath, in addition to space for a dining table and a built in window seat by the window.

Dining Room 
Tucked away from the main living space, the current owner has previously adopted this room as the main sitting area. In character with the remaining property it is awash with fabulous features including stone Mullioned windows, exposed timbers overhead and the main feature, a large fireplace with exposed brick behind, stone hearth and wood mantle housing a multi fuel stove within.

Morning Room 
Benefitting from underfloor heating to the tiled floor, this room is flooded with natural light due to a full bank of windows to two sides. This is a great spot to enjoy a morning coffee whilst enjoying the scenic surrounding views, a side entrance door opens into the garden.


Master Bedroom and En-Suite Bathroom 
A room truly worthy of its master title! Of generous proportions and having the advantage of a whole wall of bespoke fitted wardrobes offering extensive storage, wood flooring underfoot and impressive beams to the ceiling and inlaid to the wall.

Study/Bedroom 5 
A good-sized study currently fitted with quality built-in shelving, cupboards and wardrobes in addition to having a charming window seat to sit and enjoy the views over the garden. This would be ideal for a buyer looking to work from home, or alternatively if the fitted furniture was removed this would also lend itself well to use as a ground floor bedroom for dependent relatives given its close proximity to the shower room.

An impressive solid oak arched door leads into the welcoming entrance hall, displaying exposed beams and rafters to the ceiling, this in turn leads to the oak staircase and up to a large galleried landing above. Under the stairs is a discreet entrance door which opens to reveal stone steps heading down to a vaulted wine cellar below.

Summer House 
A timber framed summer house has its own heating and light supply thus making it enjoyable to use all year round, this would be a great space to work from home or simply as an extra storage area if desired. Part of the summer house is divided for use as a log store, and the building also plays hosts to the solar panels (details of which can be provided by the Vendor to interested parties).

Double Garage 
A substantial structure in its own right, the garage is built in a similar stone in keeping with the style and theme of Maple Farm, with twin oak doors opening into a large garage to comfortably house two cars whilst still allowing a good level of storage around and in the eaves. To the front of the garage is a stone flagged off road parking area for three cars, fully enclosed by the attractive wooden gates with a stone pillared entrance.

The gardens are a true delight being flat and enclosed thus perfect for family use, the space is mainly laid to lawn wrapping around three sides of the property with a feature pond to the front, all bordered by a stone wall. Maple Farm is positioned in a truly beautiful setting with breath-taking views - which can partially be grasped in our aerial drone video however a viewing is strongly advised to appreciate the full panorama of the surrounding landscape.
