Charming detached Grade II listed farmhouse with superb gardens and outbuildings located in an idyllic location close to the village church and backing onto established farm land. The property has been renovated from top to bottom to a very high specification but kept in keeping with its age and style. The property features a wealth of period features, including exposed timber beams, open inglenook fireplaces and oak doors. The grounds stretch to almost four acres and are truly stunning.

There is also a laundry room with plumbing for a washer/dryer, a cloakroom and plenty of storage cupboards.
The first floor comprises; landing which has three bedrooms, two bathrooms leading off it, loft access and airing cupboard. The master bedroom has a walk in wardrobe, fitted storage cupboards. A key feature of the room is its vaulted ceiling and timber beams, there is also stunning views across the garden. There are two further double bedrooms with similar views.

The guest bathroom benefits from being a four piece suite which includes a roll top bath, double shower cubicle with rain water shower, low level WC, pedestal wash hand basin and underfloor heating.

Outbuildings
The barn had previous planning granted for a two bedroom detached annexe. The planning has now lapsed but has been part set up with some electrics and plumbing installed. The planning consent was for open plan kitchen/breakfast/living space, mezzanine sitting/library area, bathroom and two bedrooms. There are doors which lead out to a courtyard area overlooking a pond with a decked area.

The spa/leisure outbuilding is a superb complement to the property. You will find a hot tub, double shower cubicle, sauna and WC. Through the doors you step into a games/sitting room which is big enough to house a snooker table, double doors on either side which lead to the courtyard and the gardens respectively. There is a kitchen/breakfast room with plumbing for American fridge freezer. At the end of the outbuilding is a workshop. This needs to be accessed by leaving the building as has a separate door.

There is a potting shed which is a fantastic space. This has power and light connected with double doors out and a single door which leads to a nursery greenhouse. I can't stress how superb this space is for a keen gardener.

There is a triple cart lodge allowing parking for six vehicles and storage space for garden equipment.

Summer House is currently being used to store garden furniture. It has power and light connected.

Outside
The gardens are fantastic and cannot be faulted. They have been landscaped by the award winning garden designer Sue Wooster. She has truly helped bring the vendors dream to life. The grounds stretch to almost four acres. There is a central terrace which is ideal for entertaining and has an outside kitchen area incorporating a bbq and pizza oven making this area ideal for al fresco dining.
