St Andrew's House was formerly St Andrews Church and was built in 1811 from old local Chilmark stone salvaged from a former church in the grounds of nearby Pyt House. The church was deconsecrated and converted to residential use in the 1970's and now provides spacious accommodation with some fascinating features including a very impressive beamed barrel vaulted ceiling.

The house is accessed through a stone vestibule that leads
directly into a spacious dining hall with vaulted ceiling and double height windows. Off the dining room/living room is a kitchen with a range of units and an oil fired Aga as well as attractive arched glass panels. Stairs lead up, passing a study area, to the galleried drawing room which is at mezzanine level. This room is triple aspect with a wood burning stove and views over the dining room/living room. A galleried landing leads into the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and linen cupboard. There is a further double bedroom on the ground floor as well as a family
bathroom. To the rear of the house is the study which leads through into an entrance porch. This study could also be used as a bedroom if so required. The house has the potential to be extended (subject to gaining any necessary consents) and the current owner has had drawings prepared which demonstrate where the house could be extended.

The house sits centrally in its gardens which are enclosed with mature hedging and wooden fencing. To the front of the house, wrought iron gates lead to a gravelled area leading to the vestibule. The gardens are well stocked with borders and a variety of trees including ornamental and fruit. There is also a very attractive summerhouse in the garden. At the back of the house is an elevated area for parking with a detached double garage, the garage doors are automatic. Next to the double garage is a tiled coal and log store.
