Tenure: Freehold

A converted period building with a pretty garden and paddock situated in a small rural hamlet. Dating back to the late 19th century and formerly part of the Duntish Court Estate. It stands in a lovely setting surrounded by pretty countryside. EPC Rating F.

It has been the family home of the current owners for the past 18 years. During their ownership, considerable improvements have been made to the garden and the property has been extended to create a garden room/ dining room off the kitchen/breakfast room, which enables the lovely view over the garden to be fully enjoyed. The garage has been converted to create a lovely studio. The internal layout of the property optimises the views from the windows and gives the property a light and airy feel throughout and it is presented in excellent decorative order. Off the entrance hall through an archway is the walk-through study leading to the sitting room, which has windows on three sides including French doors to the terrace and a fireplace fitted with a wood-burning stove. The kitchen/breakfast room is also off the hall and is open plan to the adjacent garden room/dining room. On the far side of the hall is the cloakroom and a double bedroom with en-suite shower room. A staircase from the study rises to the galleried landing with doors leading to the master bedroom, a further double bedroom and the family bathroom. There is a parking area beside the house, a paved path leads through to a small walled garden to the front door, with the main part of the garden lying on the far side of the house. There is a studio/office and in all the gardens and paddock extend to about 2.8 acres.
