Property Description

Full description

A beautifully presented four bedroom detached chalet style bungalow with double garage and heated swimming pool set in a tranquil setting. With one acre of land, more than 2,700 sq ft and further communal grounds, this is a stunning rural country home. The property is set behind exclusive gates, in the grounds of a beautiful Elizabethan manor house and has a swimming pool, garage and car port. There are two reception rooms, four bedrooms (two of which come with an en suite) and another family bathroom. Known as The Coach House, this house was built in the late 1990s on the site of the manor's walled kitchen garden. Today, the original wall remains, along with a pretty courtyard and delightful landscaped gardens beyond, creating a private, tranquil oasis. The majority of The Coach House is on one level, with most rooms having direct access to the garden. Large windows, raised ceilings in the kitchen and a double-height lounge area allow for an impressive amount of light to pour in, creating a sense of wide-open living space. Two formal reception rooms and a large dining room make both family life and entertaining guests easy. Details such as maple flooring, a floor-to-ceiling library in the lounge and a wood burner on a stone hearth provide the wow-factor when people visit. And whether it is enjoyed by guests or those who live here, two sets of chic French windows open onto the garden, making it easy to take in the views surrounding the home. If you do have visitors staying frequently, this property's first floor provides a self-contained guest suite, a bedroom and en suite bathroom, with the added feature of a mezzanine-style balcony overlooking the lounge area.Parts of the grounds of this home wouldn't look out of place in a period drama with a quaint sun terrace, a pool which was reinstated from its original Victorian version, and octagonal stone changing huts. It is the perfect place for idyllic country living, whether for an individual, couple or family. Much of the garden is laid to lawn with occasional shrubs and trees - perfect for lounging, reading or playing games on a summer's day.
