ACCOMMODATION The property is accessed principally from the rear elevation, from the driveway and off-road parking. The entrance is sheltered by a storm porch and an attractive timber period style door opens in to the generous entrance porch. Here there is space and hanging for coats and shoes and doors opening to a ground floor wet room including wash basin, flush WC and walk-in shower. A separate panel door with stained glass leaded window opens through to the impressive main reception hall. Plenty of natural light floods in through the gallery style landing and a cupboard beneath the staircase provides welcome storage space. Doors open off to the remainder of the ground floor accommodation including a beautifully light and airy dual aspect sunroom, currently used as a second sitting room, with views and access through double doors out to the formal gardens. A well-appointed country style kitchen also enjoys a dual aspect with side and rear facing windows taking in views towards the paddock. The kitchen comprises a range of attractive wall, base and display units with timber work surfaces, large ceramic drainer sink with mixer tap, discreetly housed central heating boiler and a serving hatch through to the dining room. Space and plumbing is available for fridge, freezer, dishwasher and a range style oven with cooker hood over. The separate dining room provides a great entertaining space for formal dining or for large families and the well-proportioned living room is the cosy heart of the property with beautiful stone fireplace, timber mantle and wood-burning stove. A door from here leads towards the annexe accommodation which also benefits from its own self-contained doors from the rear garden. The annexe comprises a double bedroom with en-suite shower room and a light and airy open plan living room/diner/kitchen with integral appliances including hob, drainer sink and access to separate central heating boiler.

The first floor landing is beautifully light and airy and features loft access, doors opening to a dual aspect bathroom with roll top freestanding bath and separate double shower cubicle, and an additional separate cloakroom with WC. The four bedrooms are of generous proportions and all enjoy dual aspects with plenty of natural light. Bedroom one has an open fireplace, range of fitted wardrobes and wonderful countryside views with bedroom two also incorporating fitted wardrobes and a pleasant aspect across the rear gardens and paddock.  

OUTSIDE The grounds are accessed via a sweeping driveway which leads in around the back of the formal gardens to the property itself, loosely separating the paddock. Off-road parking is available at the rear of the property comfortably for five-six vehicles but several more if required. The formal gardens are mostly laid to lawn, interspersed with mature trees, flower beds and an enclosed vegetable plot, potting shed and outbuildings to one end. Further timber sheds and a summerhouse provide welcome storage space at various parts of the garden. The stocked pond makes a welcome focal point from the generous patio area which provides a great entertaining space, enjoys a southerly aspect. A decked area spans the rear of the annexe accommodation linking the patio which has access through double doors from the sun room. Corrugated outbuildings provide potential stabling or general storage and fencing denotes an area currently used for the leasing of caravan pitches with communal recreation area. Electricity and water supplies are available to these pitches and are separately metered with the annexe. In total the grounds offer circa 2.3 acres of versatile space although offering a genuine current business opportunity. Finally at the rear of the property itself is a separate outhouse housing the utility room with a range of fitted storage units and work surfaces, drainer sink and space and plumbing for appliances as required. An enclosed cloakroom is found at the end of this space.
