Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This beautiful 17th century home with later additions was constructed in an attractive Ham Stone under a thatched roof. The property retains a huge amount of character, including sash and stone Mullion windows, open fireplaces, window shutters, window seats and an attractive 18th century staircase.

Whilst the current owner has recently refitted the kitchen, including the addition of a two-oven electric Aga, as well as overhauling the heating system and connecting to the mains gas, the house still has great potential for improvement, particularly in the large attic bedrooms, connected by a dressing room and replacement of the existing bathrooms.

The annexe offers excellent potential for ground floor living with a separate rear entrance, self-contained modest kitchen, living room, bedroom and ensuite bathroom with a hidden connecting door through to the drawing room. A particular feature of the property is its gardens, the whole site extending to 0.83 acres, including a former stables, currently garaging and workshop space with further potential; separate garage building and wider formal and informal garden areas including kitchen garden space, all backing onto fields providing a beautiful village edge setting. This combined with its excellent village amenities and A303 access makes it a very attractive proposition indeed and we recommend an internal inspection.
