A stunning and scenic five bedroom family home tucked away amidst picturesque countryside with an abundance of wildlife and land flanking the river Boyd. Set within five acres of private grounds, these two 16th century mill workers' cottages were united by the current owners to form a magnificent family house; there is also a substantial garden annexe which makes for an ideal home office. The idyllic position overlooks a weir with the river flowing by and the rural countryside beyond.
The accommodation, which is arranged over two floors, includes a spacious country kitchen and breakfast room with rows of tall windows overlooking the water and allowing the entire space to be flooded with light. The bespoke Chalon fitted kitchen also boasts an Aga, stainless steel integral appliances and a central breakfast island. A large and handsome dining room with exposed beams is situated adjacent to the kitchen and has a contemporary stove and two sets of patio doors which open out into the garden. A sizeable living room also enjoys views over the garden and river, and benefits from a modern stove fitted into the house's original fireplace. The ground floor is completed by a spacious study and a cloakroom. On the first floor is a breathtaking master bedroom suite with a dressing room, and a luxurious en-suite shower, bathroom and sauna. There are three further good sized double bedrooms, one of which has a fully fitted en-suite bathroom. A separate family bathroom and a laundry room complete the first floor. Surrounding the house are gardens and grounds totalling approximately 5 acres, with a superb kitchen garden, tennis court, paddock and summer house which is currently used as a gym. There is a separate two-storey annexe which would make an ideal home office and one further annexe which contains a spacious living area, a kitchen and a fully fitted kitchen.
