The property maximises its position within the plot, approached from a sweeping gravel driveway you arrive at this charming stone built Georgian property and its surrounding views.

The light hallway, with its stripped wood flooring sets the tone for this classically styled family home. Leading to the kitchen/breakfast room which has the potential to be the heart of the home, to stand preparing food is to look over the charming gardens. The dining room, bathed in natural light, is a fabulous room for formal entertaining, with its original fireplace, stripped wooden floors and large sash window this room is nothing short of magnificent.

The warm sitting room with wood-burner, exposed brick surround and one of the two original bread-ovens, overlooks the front garden and leads onto a further study. A large conservatory has been added to make the most of the views across the garden and countryside beyond. To follow down a further flight of stairs is to find a family room and study area perfect for multi-generational family living.

To the first floor, the master bedroom with fitted wardrobes is light and spacious, and steps down into a large en-suite bathroom. Two further double bedrooms, a single and the family bathroom complete the upstairs accommodation.

Sat in grounds of 1.7 acres, to the front (South) of the property there are 2 lawned areas separated by a pathway leading to the front door. There are 2 mature Holly trees and 1 yew tree which pre-date the residence, with flower borders running along the front of the property. A mature hedge borders the front of the property. A large 7ft wall separates the front garden from the side garden (the original orchard) which is laid mostly to a well maintained lawn, with a number of fruit trees, as well as an established planted garden incorporating a Dovecote.

A flint driveway leads from one side of the property into the rear of the house and provides secure off road parking for many vehicles. Additionally there is a large double garage via electrically operated door with a heated workshop area leading off. Entrance to the house and grounds is via a shared secure driveway through electrically operated security gates incorporating an intercom system to the residence.
