The front hall sets the scene and provides a welcome entrance into this lovely home. On either side of the staircase there are doors to the Drawing Room and Sitting Room, both of which have high ceilings and wonderful inglenook fireplaces (the Sitting Room also has a woodburning stove). The carved oak beams in the Drawing Room are of particular note and really lend to the character and feel of this room. This room leads through to a light and airy Dining Room with french doors leading to the side garden with its delightful borders. From the Sitting Room you enter a Butlers Pantry which in turn leads to a good sized utility room. Beyond the Sitting Room is the large, bright and well appointed bespoke fitted Kitchen with views to the side and front gardens and the pond with its abundant wildlife. Space for a large table makes this room the real 'heart of the home' and a great entertaining space. A window seat in the kitchen allows you to relax and enjoy the serenity of the views and setting and the wonderful ambience within the house. A Boot Room/Lobby leads off this room and includes the Cloakroom with Water Softener unit.
To the first floor where there are three delightfully decorated bedrooms giving views of the surrounding countryside, the largest of which has an ensuite making it an ideal guest bedroom. A small space off the inner landing is a useful space for study/library or music room. A Shower Room can be found further along the landing together with the fourth Bedroom currently used as a study. Up to the second floor where the high vaulted and beamed ceilings are a feature. One is set up as a dressing room, whilst the other is the Master Bedroom off which is a stunning large ensuite with freestanding bath.


Outside
The grounds surround the property which has a gravelled drive accessed by a five bar gate from the lane. The gardens are planted with immaculate cottage style borders and present a perfect backdrop for the farmhouse. The pond at the front of the house is a wonderful setting and falls partly within the boundary of High Poplars and is a haven for wildlife. To the rear and accessed from the Kitchen is a paved courtyard with roses and wisteria setting the scene for a perfect outside dining area. Behind this courtyard is a workshop and garage which had planning permission for conversion/rebuilding as a separate annexe for holiday accommodation. This provides further potential opportunities for income if so desired. The peace and quiet in the garden allow you to enjoy the abundant birdsong and make for a very tranquil home.
