The property is built of locally quarried stone with numerous leaded light mullion windows beneath a Welsh slate roof. The property enjoys a tucked away setting in the village Conservation Area and is curtilage Listed Grade II. The property was sympathetically converted in the early 1990s to create light and airy accommodation combined with traditional features including exposed oak timbers and a stone inglenook fireplace. A particular feature of the property is the original substantial barn opening which is now fully glazed and allows light to flood into the dining room and first floor landing. The spacious accommodation includes three well-proportioned reception rooms. The sitting room has a stone inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and a door leads into the family room which has a partly vaulted ceiling, substantial store room and French doors opening out to the courtyard. The dining room has a seasoned solid wood floor and again French doors which open out onto the courtyard to the rear. The kitchen is located at the heart of the house and has a range of units and drawers and an oil fired, green enameled two oven Aga and opens into the breakfast room. The kitchen leads to a rear lobby with access to the utility, cloakroom and double garage.
A staircase rises from the dining room to the first floor galleried landing which is particularly spacious and could accommodate a study or further sitting area with views over the garden to the front of the property. Accessed from the landing are two generous bedroom suites, both with en suite shower rooms and large walk in wardrobes. There are two further bedrooms, a family bathroom, a good sized walk in housekeeper's cupboard and airing cupboard.
The annexe adjoins the main living accommodation and is located directly above the garaging being accessed via a separate staircase. The annexe is built in a similar style to the main house with attractive red brick relief and timber casement windows. Again the accommodation is spacious and offers a very well-proportioned sitting room, a galley kitchen, two bedrooms, both with a fitted wardrobe, and a well-appointed bathroom.
The general setting of the property is delightful with established gardens and grounds. To the front of the property is an area of lawn dotted with specimen trees, a herbaceous border and decorative stone wall. To the rear of the property is a south west facing, hard landscaped walled courtyard garden which is ideal for outside dining. A driveway leads to the garaging and parking whilst a secondary driveway leads to a useful fenced paddock extending to over an acre with mature fruit trees and countryside views.
Situated between the paddock and the property is a pair of modern concrete and steel framed disused agricultural barns with potential for improvement or conversion to a number of uses (subject to planning). The barns are set out around a small concrete yard.
The property is curtilage Listed Grade II.
