Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Believed to date from the early 19th century, this is an unlisted, classic double fronted Regency house. It has been refurbished throughout and has retained many period features including fireplaces, doors and architrave and care has been taken to blend new fittings with the originals. EPC:D

Overall there are four reception rooms; drawing room, sitting room and study, all with open fireplaces (two fitted with wood burning stoves) and the dining room, which forms an L-shaped single room with the kitchen. It has an Indian grey stone floor and is fitted with painted bespoke timber units and a 3 oven electric AGA. It has windows on two sides including French windows leading out onto the terrace and twin doors to the adjacent drawing room to facilitate entertaining. At the rear of the house off the hall are the laundry room and cloakroom. An elegant, original staircase rises to the galleried landing on the first floor, where there are four well proportioned double bedrooms with en-suite facilities. The master bedroom has a walk-through dressing room leading to the en-suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle. The house has a light and airy feeling and its position means that the views across the garden can be seen from the majority of rooms.
Outside there is an oak-framed double garage, with a studio on the first floor accessed by an external flight of stairs. The majority of the garden extends around the southern and eastern sides of the house, with a broad paved terrace off the kitchen/dining room and a cobbled terrace at the rear to enjoy the morning sun. The garden has an extensive lawn with a number of mature trees, with fringing herbaceous borders. Beyond the garden unspoilt countryside forms an idyllic backdrop to provide a lovely setting.
