Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The main entrance has a covered porch leading into the hall with a storage cupboard. The hall leads to the study, which has the benefit of an en suite shower room and built-in storage cupboard and could easily be used as a downstairs bedroom, or there is the potential to create an annex if the adjacent family room was incorporated.

There is an attractive kitchen/breakfast room, particularly light and airy in the morning sunlight. It is fitted with a range of wall and base units, coupled with a wood-effect floor, double electric oven range with six-ring electric hob, space for a fridge/freezer, a one and a half bowl ceramic sink unit, a built-in larder cupboard and hatch to the dining room. Off the kitchen is a useful utility room connecting to the integral garage and rear door. The inner hallway, which includes a storage cupboard, has doors to the formal dining room, sitting room and downstairs cloak room. The sitting room is of exceptional proportions, with a feature fireplace. This beautiful room offers a superb degree of natural light, with double doors to the garden at the side and windows enjoying views of the rear garden.

A turning staircase from the sitting room leads upstairs to five bedrooms. The half landing opens to a triple aspect master bedroom. This room has far reaching views across the countryside and has built-in wardrobes and en suite bathroom. There is an additional room off this landing area, which could be used as either a dressing room or nursery. Four further double bedrooms are found off the main landing, three of which have built-in wardrobes. Bedroom five is currently being used as a home office and has a lovely feature stained glass window and a full height feature window with views of the rear garden and fields beyond. The family bathroom, walk in airing cupboard and a separate shower room are also on this floor.

The property is approached via a shingle driveway and front garden with mature trees. The house is set well back from the road behind a five-bar wooden gate. Beyond the gate there is generous off-road parking and brick paving leading to an integral single garage and oak framed cart lodge with light and power and includes oil tank and wood storage to the rear. A wooden side gate allows access to the rear garden which is enclosed by hedging and fencing. The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn with exceptionally well-stocked borders and mature trees including a selection of eating and cooking apples. There is a patio area ideal for al fresco dining, two sheds, greenhouse, an additional outbuilding/barn and a fully enclosed chicken run.
