Property Description

Full description

VIDEO/VIRTUAL TOUR AVAILABLE for this property. Beautifully and quietly tucked away at the end of its own tree-lined driveway offering peace, privacy and tranquility and set in the most glorious gardens. This exquisitely presented detached period cottage which has been beautifully extended, restyled and refurbished with great thought and attention to detail.
The substantial accommodation offers a great deal of flexibility in use with two ground floor en-suite bedrooms, which would enable a B&B business to be operated or would ideally accommodate elderly relatives or teenagers. All five bedrooms are substantial doubles and have the space to take dressing tables and other furniture, three have extensive wardrobes built-in.
Having been in the business some 37 years, I can quite honestly say Lavender House is one of the most beautifully presented properties I've seen, and you can clearly see the property has been loved and cared for by the present owners with a superb refurbishment enhancing the property's character, whilst still providing all 'mod-cons'. Moving onto the gardens, the plot is totally private, faces almost due south and, like the rest of the house, is beautifully presented, stylishly replanted and thoughtfully planned.
