Tenure: Freehold

With stunning looks, straight off a chocolate box or picture-postcard, this property started out as a thatched cob cottage, now forming the living room and master bedroom, this fabulous property was sympathetically extended in the sixties, to create what is now a substantial family home, blending original features with modern comforts.

The property has accommodation arranged over two floors, and is encompassed by gardens amounting to approximately two-thirds of an acre, surrounded by farm land on three sides.

The spacious entrance hallway has a convenient ground floor cloakroom with a WC and basin, and a staircase to the first floor. Steps lead down through the thick cobb walls into the living room, the ground floor of the original cottage. A fabulous room with thick walls, low ceiling, Georgian-paned casement windows with deep sills, and a fireplace, fitted with a wood-burning stove, on a slate hearth, making a lovely feature and wonderful with a roaring fire on a dark winter night.

The kitchen is spacious with a quarry-tiled floor, solid-granite worktops along two walls with a range of oak high and low-level units providing ample cupboard space, complete with feature lighting. A red and black enamel, oil-fired Aga provides cooking facilities, along with a two-ring calor-gas hob, there is an integrated dishwasher, and an inset sink with a draining board carved into the worktop. A utility room has more worktops, a sink, space with plumbing, for a washing machine and a freezer, and the oil-fired boiler for the hot water and central heating.

A separate dining room offers views of the garden and plenty of space for eight around a table, a grand venue for a dinner party or family celebration, with a door and thatched porch to the garden. A rear passage has a door to the driveway, and space for hanging winter coats and a door from the utility room leads into the double garage, which is vast, it has dual up and over doors, lights and power, a workbench to the rear and a door to the garden.

Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom, the first floor of the original cottage, oozes character, with a vaulted ceiling, exposed roof timbers and a thatched dormer window. There are four further bedrooms, three doubles, all light and airy, and a single currently used as a study, all with fabulous rural views. A family bathroom is beautifully tiled, with a roll-top bath, a separate shower and a wash hand basin, and there is a separate WC off the landing. A door leads into a second landing with doors to another modern bathroom, a shower room and sauna, and the spacious second bedroom which has a fitted double wardrobe. The light and airy landing has a hatch in the ceiling providing access to the loft.

A gated entrance provides access into the gardens which are totally private. A sweeping tarmac driveway widens beside the property providing parking for at least eight cars.

A large, level lawn at the front, is punctuated with trees and beds of shrubs and flowers. There is a greenhouse, an open-fronted wood store and a compost area.

At the side of the house, the gardens continue with neat lawns, and a seating terrace, and at the rear there are more lawns, mature flower beds and decorative rockeries, with gentle steps up to the swimming pool which has a cover, entry steps, and a timber, filter and pump house. The pool is surrounded by a paved terrace, ideal for a family barbecue, or outside dining, and there is a timber summerhouse and an open-fronted timber building providing a useful covered entertaining area.

The gardens continue around the far side of the house, with additional parking, raised beds of shrubs and flowers and a lawn connecting to the front of the property. A wide paved terrace with a pergola runs along the rear of the property, with several outside taps for the watering, and the gardens are mainly bounded by beech hedges and adjoining fields on three sides, ideal for children and pets.
