General Comments - The location of Woodside is very special and whilst being extremely private and completely hidden it is just off the centre of the village and within walking distance of excellent facilities and bus top. The property has been in the same family ownership for many years and the current owner's father was the village doctor and patients would visit Woodside - the right hand entrance door opened into the waiting room.
The property comprises the main dwelling, a separate detached cottage currently a successful holiday let, garaging for four cars, stables and approximately three acres of land. Woodside itself is a fine detached period house with attractive stone elevations offering spacious accommodation and pleasant views from the rear over the gardens and grounds. All of the rooms are of a very good proportion with high ceilings and large traditional sliding sash windows that afford plenty of natural light. There are four bedrooms plus an attic bedroom, large kitchen/dining room with Aga, spacious sitting room, study, cloakroom, utility and bathroom. There is a ground floor reception room, wet room and second entrance that could easily be reconfigured into a separate annexe if required. Large mature rear gardens enjoy a sunny aspect and are very private with lawns and many interesting shrubs, plants and trees. A front drive provides parking for many vehicles and there is a detached double garage.

A short distance away is a two bedroom detached cottage, currently rented out as a holiday let. The cottage is very well presented and includes two bedrooms, spacious sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and cloakroom. Outside is a small garden, parking, two garages and a store. It can also be used as a full time home or annexe - it does not have a holiday occupancy restriction. There is potential (subject to consent) to create private access from the main thoroughfare of the village by re opening a previous blocked up access if required.

The land is gently sloping and is divided into two useful sized paddocks within natural hedge boundaries. It extends to just over three acres and is ideal for hobby farming and equestrian enthusiasts. There is an excellent outbuilding divided into three stables and tack room. An internal viewing is essential.
