Full description

Rarely do you find a property which truly catches your imagination as soon as you cross the threshold - well, walk this way. Spacious rooms full to the brim with character and charm to reflect its origins and throwing sparks of contemporary style into the mix plus superb annexe and private gardens.

A painted timber door with leaded glass insert opens into the vestibule with circular windows to either side. An opening and step up takes you into the charming dining hall with window to the front, exposed ceiling beams and a striking sandstone fireplace with cast iron dog grate resting on a York stone hearth. There are ample lamp and wall lighting points to give a delightful evening ambience and, to one end, a spindle staircase turns and rises to the first floor.

The solid oak flooring continues into the snug which is also positioned to the front of the property and a tall Adams style oak surround with a raised cast iron open fire grate on a York stone hearth takes centre stage. Again, wall and lamp lighting points illuminate the room and there is also a television point. The principal lounge has an almost full width window to the rear with central French windows opening to the garden. The classical style of the honey coloured Bath stone fire surround and hearth sits perfectly on the light oak flooring and beams and the painted timber wall panelling raises the rooms profile.

The superb living dining kitchen is fitted with a mix of painted timber base cabinets and stripped pine drawers having coordinating shelves and plate racks above, a freestanding dresser and an island unit with basket storage and woodblock worktop. Ginger flecked granite counters harmonize with the tiled flooring and incorporate an inset butler's sink with swan neck mixer tap and etched drainers to either side. On hand to provide the catering is the four-oven Aga with two hot plates and companion a four ring ceramic hob with tiled splash-back. There is plumbing for an automatic dishwasher, space for a larder fridge and, across the peninsula unit, there is ample room for a further dresser, kitchen table and chairs. The tiled flooring continues through double doors into the uPVC conservatory which overlooks the garden, has a further set of double doors to the garden and a wall mounted air conditioning unit. The utility room, off the kitchen, houses the other essential white goods and has further storage cupboards. A door opens to the cloakroom which is fitted with a Heritage high flush w.c. and pedestal wash basin plus built-in cupboards and a heated towel rail.

An almost full height window at the half landing allows natural light to pour through and gives attractive garden views. The L-shaped landing has two loft hatches, exposed ceiling beams, wall lighting points, latch doors to all four of the double bedrooms, bathroom and also the linen cupboard housing the hot water tank. The dual aspect and very spacious master bedroom has ample space for wardrobes and chests, is wired for wall lighting and lamps and enjoys far reaching rural views, taking in the three acre field included. The en suite comprises a white Heritage suite comprising sprinkler shower in a tiled cubicle and a pedestal wash basin with a backdrop of painted wall panelling to dado height - as are the other bathrooms.

Bedroom two has two windows to the rear, oak flooring, wall lighting points and a wall mounted television point. The en suite has a one and a half size tiled shower cubicle with sprinkler head, pedestal wash basin and low flush w.c. plus inset spotlights overhead. Bedrooms three and four are also spacious double rooms with exposed oak beams and windows to the front. Both are served by the luxurious bathroom with an opaque window to the rear and fitted with a white four piece suite comprising roll-top claw-foot bath, a large shower cubicle with splash tiling, w.c. and a pedestal wash basin, inset spotlights and a heated rail to warm the towels.

The painted rendered former farmhouse sits beyond a low retaining wall backed by deep laurel hedging which curves around the lawn garden and specimen tree. Alongside is a broad, pebbled driveway with parking for several cars and having a five barred gate to the rear garden which proves equally as appealing as the interior. Laid mainly to lawn, a low stone wall meanders around the boundary and harbours raised shrub and herbaceous borders whilst an extensive Indian stone sun terrace abuts the house.

Across the garden, a rustic brick built store has been skilfully converted to provide a superb annexe with stone flooring, Velux windows and a stable style door. The space includes an open-plan snug with high level cot above, TV point, space for a double bed and a door to a wash-room with electric shower in a glazed stall, Butler's style wash basin and a low flush w.c. You'll probably never see your teenager again! A rambling rose arbour over a pebbled pathway and stepping stones leads to the timber built gymnasium with two side windows, wall mounted television point and ample power points. A further, matching timber building is currently used for storage. In addition, across the road is a fully enclosed three acre paddock, currently home to a small flock of sheep. Returning to the rear garden, the enchanting shepherds hut currently works as a private retreat and can be purchased under separate negotiation.
