The property, within easy walking distance to the village yet extremely private, is located in a small valley surrounded by woodland and farmland. The architecture indicates an early building with considerable development and construction taking place in the 18th century. Extensive renovations have been undertaken by the current owners in the nineteen sixties with further improvements in more recent years which include a new bathroom, several new windows and replacement flat roofing. The property does however retain the opportunity for further ongoing development. It is ideal for use in its traditional role as a splendid family home or alternatively could find a future in a commercial role, for example as a designer guest house, of course subject to the appropriate consents.
The internal design and arrangement of the accommodation reflects its Georgian past featuring both high ceilings and sash windows. The formal entrance is via a period front door into a large Reception Hall with a coved ceiling and local stone fireplace with a coats cupboard to the side. Leading from the Reception Hall there is a delightful well-proportioned Drawing Room with views west over the valley to the village. Shuttered French windows lead on to an outside terrace. On the south side of the house there is a Dining Room with an impressive stone fireplace, again decorative coving and oak flooring. The Inner Hall, lit by shuttered sash windows, leads to the First Floor via an open tread staircase. The Sitting Room, with an extensive range of book shelves and a stone fireplace, fitted with a wood burning stove, has a view out to the drive. The Kitchen features a huge stone open fireplace with bread oven, an inset oil-fired Rayburn, a range of cupboards and walk- in Larder. In addition, there is a Utility/Boot Room plumbed for a washing machine which leads through a charming stable door to a rear courtyard. A downstairs cloakroom completes the ground floor facilities.
The staircase, modern open tread design, leads on to the spacious landing which overlooks the gardens and beyond in a southerly direction. The Bedrooms as with the rest of the house reflect an elegant past being well proportioned and mostly with sash windows which give wonderful light with far reaching views. In some cases, the rooms retain period fire places. Bathroom 1 was renovated in 2018 with Burlington fittings and includes a large shower cubicle, heated ladder towel rail and under floor heating. The second Bathroom has a coloured suite with corner bath and bidet. There are two airing cupboards, one with hot water cylinder.
