Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Yew Hedge House is a distinctive period village house offering spacious family accommodation with stables, partly walled gardens & grounds extending to approximately 3.5 acres.

The house dates back to the early 1800's when it was commissioned to be the village Doctors residence and Surgery. The current vendors have undertaken an extensive and through refurbishment, remodelling the house to create a stunning versatile and spacious home.

The kitchen/breakfast/family room is a glorious space and is truly the heart of the home with ample space to relax and dine as well as easy access to and views over the garden.

A generous reception hall welcomes visitors to the house, and leads through to the dining room which benefits from a conservatory to the front aspect. Two steps then lead through to the sitting room which is full of character and charm. A trap door then gives access to the best room in the house, The Wine Cellar! Cool and dry ideal for storing your vintage port or favourite Bordeaux.

The ground floor also has a large study, impressive utility/boot room and the all-important cloakroom and shower which is ideally located by the back door, allowing muddy children and dogs who have enjoyed the outdoor space to be sanitised before entering the main house.

The first floor offers well designed accommodation. The master bedroom suite has en-suit facilities and a staircase leading up to a further room which would make an ideal nursery or hobbies room. There are 3 further double bedrooms and a large family bathroom on this floor with a second stair case leading to the 5th bedroom which is in the attic space.

The gardens are a real asset to the property and have been beautifully landscaped, planted with specimen trees and well stocked herbaceous borders. Just off the kitchen is a large paved terrace where many barbeques have been enjoyed in the summer months.

Beyond the formal gardens there is a chicken house with run and a brick built stable block. Outside the stable there is a small yard and area of grass/paddock.

A footpath leads through the side of the property and gives access to the remaining land where the paddocks can be found. The paddocks are well drained and fenced and benefit from large field shelter.

In addition there is an area of copse with a wildlife pond which completes the tranquil life style this village property has to offer.
