Description

A thoughtful and stylish renovation of this appealing historic house has been newly completed to very high standards. The combination of historic architecture and good design provide exciting and dynamic accommodation. Believed to date from the 18th century and enlarged during the late 20th century there are a combination of architectural styles which combine to provide the appealing house of today. Automated wooden gates open onto a gravel drive which runs to the south of the house and garden. The front door is on the garden facade and upon entering, the quality of the design and presentation is immediately apparent. The superb kitchen/breakfast room with pattern tiled floor has beech wall and floor cabinets with extensive marble work surfaces. There is space for a large fridge freezer, a Miele 4 ring electric hob with CDA extractor hood above and a Neff double oven. Across the hall is the sitting room with its open fireplace, ceiling beams and bookshelves. An open doorway leads into the library/snug which is arranged in two rooms at the front of the house. The drawing room has French doors opening onto a terrace and the garden beyond. There is a staircase from the hall to a small landing serving the master bedroom and bathroom. The principal bedroom has a fireplace, a good range of built in wardrobes and a door to the main landing. The bathroom offers classic white sanitary ware with ball and claw bath, separate shower and marble tiles. There are two further bedrooms and the family bathroom on the first floor and a bedroom with an en suite shower room on the second floor.

The large garden is private and enjoys a magnificent Cedar tree at its eastern end. Mainly lawn there is a large fire pit, perennial beds and a Magnolia tree as well as laurels, yews and a clipped topiary bed in front of the kitchen.
