Originally serving the impressive Burwood House, The Coach House is now an entity in its own right, set in an attractive position in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with mature gardens, orchards and a pretty meadow bordered by mixed woodland and natural ponds.

The traditional red brick, tile hung, Victorian coach house was converted into residential accommodation approximately 38 years ago. Much of the character and charm remains intact with the retention of many of the original stable fittings creating an interesting feature. Originally the grooms' quarters, the second floor enjoys a lovely outlook over the gardens and grounds, with the principal bedroom fitted with a wide door out to a Juliette balcony.

This well proportioned and adaptable property now offers an opportunity to further enhance the accommodaiton to create an individual detached country home, with the benefit of a separate, self-contained annexe.

The grounds are a superb feature, extending to about 7.36 acres in total. The garden to the rear of the Coach House merges into an orchard, stocked with established apple trees, whilst the Annexe enjoys a lovely position with full height French doors from the bedroom and living room opening out to the original walled estate garden. The field extends from the buildings down to the rear boundary, offering open space for children and animals alike.
