DESCRIPTION Set within extensive mature gardens, Priors Court dates back to the Sixteenth Century with later additions and a Georgian style façade. The house is full of period features including high ceilings, stone mullion windows, flagstone floors and original doors. These combine beautifully with the spacious and well-appointed rooms to create an exceptionally versatile family home which the addition of a contemporary glazed drawing room further enhances.

The house has well-proportioned rooms with a large farmhouse style kitchen and dining room and a recently added drawing room with bi-folding elevations opening out onto the gardens. Ideally suited to a large family, or someone wishing to work from home, the accommodation is arranged over three floors with two staircases. In addition there are some useful outbuildings and extensive gardens and grounds. The village is a short stroll away and has good facilities such as a primary school, a village hall, doctor's surgery, a delicatessen and two pubs. 

THE ACCOMMODATION A wooden front door leads into the entrance hall with tiled floor and stairs to the first floor and a door to the sitting room. This room has a stone mullion window to the front, exposed wooden floor boards, picture rail, polished stone open fireplace and double doors leading to the garden room. A recent addition, the glazed drawing room is a fabulous room with bi-folding doors, creating a fusion of house and garden allowing the gardens to be fully enjoyed throughout the year. There is a cosy snug with a wood burning stove and a useful adjacent study. A traditional farmhouse style kitchen has flagstone floors and is fitted with a range of white floor and wall cabinets and overlooks the gardens. The adjoining dining room has doors onto the patio area. There is a useful utility room, downstairs shower room and a pantry completes the downstairs accommodation. There are two staircases to the property with four double bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor and three further bedrooms on the second floor. 

OUTSIDE The gardens and grounds lie mainly to the rear of the property and have a patio seating area, extensive lawns, an orchard and a wildlife area.
There is ample gravelled parking the front of the house with a timber triple garage and further single garage/outbuilding. There is another large area of hard standing that can be used for parking and storage to the side of the property.
A tiled veranda to the side of the house serves as a covered seating area with entrance doors to the side of the house.

The generous gardens incorporate an orchard, a secret garden and the large lawned area which slopes away to a pond on the boundary below.

The gardens are ideal for children and a zip wire in the garden will provide hours of fun.
