The present owners purchased Sheepfold as a derelict barn in the late 1990's. Since then they have created a beautiful home inspired by the stunning scenery and the peaceful location.

Sheepfold offers flexible accommodation designed to take full advantage of the setting whilst retaining a wealth of character with vaulted ceilings, feature brick walls, exposed wall and ceiling timbers apparent throughout. The layout is cleverly designed to maximise natural light with windows perfectly positioned to frame the views.

The country kitchen/breakfast room has fitted storage, an Aga, an electric oven and ceramic hob, a fitted microwave, an integral fridge and a dishwasher. The adjacent utility room offers additional storage and space for other appliances. The breakfast area has access to a paved patio.

The study opens to the light and airy sitting room where triple aspect windows and French doors frame superb views and an inglenook fireplace houses a Morso wood-burning stove for cosy winter evenings.

The impressive drawing room and formal dining room have vaulted ceilings, exposed timbers, feature brick walls and share a double sided log burner set in an attractive inglenook fireplace. Two sets of French doors open to the gardens.

There are four bedrooms; the master bedroom is dual aspect and has fitted storage, an ensuite bathroom and a private balcony enjoying superb views. There is also a family bathroom.

Located above the garage, the annexe is accessed via external steps. There are two bedrooms, a bathroom, an open-plan kitchen/ sitting/dining room with a wood burning stove and a private patio.

The landscaped gardens surround Sheepfold and are designed to complement the countryside setting. Discreet areas of the garden are defined by mature hedges and are linked by meandering paths. There are areas of lawn edged with well stocked borders and a variety of seating areas all placed to take advantage of the views.

One sheltered area is home to a summerhouse and natural swimming pond. This is a delightful spot nestled within curved walls, with a paved terrace, a decked pontoon and a cellar creating the perfect place for outdoor entertaining.
