3 Tangier Lane is a 6-bedroom house constructed in the 1960's and extended and refurbished by the current owners to provide a spacious and flexible family home with a contemporary feel. The well-proportioned accommodation is arranged to maximise enjoyment of the lovely outlook to the South from the principal rooms. Points of note include:
- oak panelled internal doors;
- limestone flooring to the entrance hall and kitchen/living area;
- large open-plan kitchen/living area with freestanding wooden units under granite-covered and woodblock worktops and a 4-oven oil-fired Aga. Walk-in larder and space for an American-style fridge/freezer;
- woodburning stove open to both the dining and family room areas and bi-fold doors leading onto the garden terrace, the limestone flooring continuing out to the garden terrace to create an almost seamless flow from inside to outside;
- separate sitting room with its own access to the entrance lobby and to the terrace and stairs up to a bedroom/study, offering potential for the creation of a self-contained annexe;
- master bedroom with French doors onto a South-facing balcony, extensive built-in cupboards and an en suite bathroom which can also be accessed from the adjoining bedroom/study;
- double aspect bedroom to the front with delightful countryside views to the East.

The property is set back from Tangier Lane behind mature hedging, a driveway leading down to a parking area directly in front of the house. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn interspersed with specimen trees and shrubs including cotinus, tree peony and weeping pear. The garden benefits from a high degree of privacy, with mature hedging to the boundaries and farmland and countryside to two sides and beyond Tangier Lane to the North.
- a paved utility area incorporating two substantial sheds lies to the eastern side of the house, enclosed to the front by a picket fence;
- the rear garden slopes away to the South and has been landscaped to create three main tiers with a large level area to the middle tier comprising a lawn and the paved pool area;
- steps lead up from the pool area to the main terrace;
- a further set of steps provides access from the lawn down to the lower level which features a pond, a wild garden and a summer house.
