THE PROPERTY
Highfield House is a charming country house believed to date back to the early Victorian era with rendered elevations beneath a clay tiled roof which has just been reroofed. This comfortable home benefits from modern double-glazed windows and an oil-fired central heating system and has been extended by the current owners who have added an excellent, slate roofed kitchen/breakfast room to the eastern elevation, which overlooks much of the fabulous gardens and stunning view to the rear. There are retained character features such as the back to back range and stove fireplaces with an old bread oven and some exposed timbers. The porch to the front gives access from the gated path through the substantial front door to the entrance hall which, with the stairs to the first floor, leads to the principal reception rooms. To the western end, the reading room, which benefits from an open fireplace, shelved alcove and window to the front, opens to the sitting room to the rear. The sitting room has a feature stove fireplace and old bread oven, to one end and a door giving access to the greenhouse conservatory to the other end. The garden room, which leads off via glazed double doors, enjoys full appreciation of the garden and countryside views to the rear. There is access through the dining room, which features an old wrought iron range stove set into the exposed brick chimney breast, with a section of exposed original wattle and daub plaster to the side, to the well-proportioned and stylish kitchen/breakfast room. With windows to three elevations and glazed/part glazed doors to the front and rear, this semi vaulted room offers good light and atmosphere and is fitted with an attractive range of base and eye level units, with integrated appliances such as a Neff double oven, electric hob cooker with extractor above, dishwasher, Neff fridge/freezer and space and plumbing for further white goods. The boiler cupboard leads off the kitchen and houses the oil-fired boiler affording good drying space. The snug/tv room connects the kitchen back to the hall, where there is also a cloakroom/wc. On the first floor, this former five-bedroom house has been changed by the current owners, amalgamating two bedrooms to create an excellent master bedroom suite with dressing room and en-suite shower room; This could be reversed if desired. There are three further well-proportioned double bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes and good views from the windows. There is also a family bathroom with a separate shower over the bath.

OUTSIDE
The gardens are a particular feature of Highfield House and are enhanced by the glorious rural views to both the front and rear.
