Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This fine example of a Grade II Listed timber-framed house offers a fine blend of period charm and contemporary elegance, with exposed ancient beams, vaulted ceiling and inglenook fireplaces, whilst occupying an enviable position, overlooking Offham's quintessential village green.

Throughout this 17th Century former blacksmiths residence there remains striking evidence of its past. In more recent years it has been sympathetically enhanced, bringing character and modern conveniences together to afford the best of both worlds within this versatile and highly desirable home. Appointed over two/three levels and currently configured with four bedrooms, this beautiful space provides an impressive level of living accommodation.

A well considered and arranged ground floor offers a generous level of light and airy entertaining space. Comprised of a spacious triple aspect lounge with an imposing inglenook fireplace, exposed beams to the ceilings and walls and French doors opening to the rear terrace. A contemporary bespoke fitted Smallbone kitchen/breakfast room with granite work surfaces, twin butler style sinks and a comprehensive range of integrated appliances to include - a double oven, dishwasher and microwave. The breakfast area exhibits characterful beams and a feature open brick fireplace. In an adjacent room a dedicated utility room complements the kitchen with an additional sink and space/plumbing for a washing machine and dryer. Housed within the converted forge element of the property, a sizeable dining room with double aspect views of the village green. In the opposing half of the old forge - a hugely impressive cinema room with a feature ragstone wall, beamed and vaulted ceiling, concealed A.V. equipment room and French doors opening to the rear terrace. A wine cellar can be accessed via a trap door located in the lounge. A downstairs cloakroom offers convenience and completes the ground floor.

A staircase rises from the reception hall to the first floor. The double aspect master bedroom is bathed in light and exhibits an air of boutique charm with a feature open stone fireplace, and characterful beams to the walls and ceiling, whilst in-built wardrobes provide practicality and convenience. A luxurious en-suite shower room compliments the master bedroom perfectly. The second bedroom also benefits from luxurious en-suite facilities, whilst the remaining two double bedrooms are supported by a contemporary family bathroom.

Step Outside

The stunning gardens offer a fantastic degree of variety depending on the occasion or mood. To the back of the house a brick paved terrace can be accessed via the kitchen, lounge or cinema room and offers an elevated position overlooking the beautifully manicured gardens. Beyond the terrace, a large lawn exhibits prolifically well stocked flower beds with a range of mature shrubbery, herbaceous plants, specimen trees and a wooden summerhouse. Steps down from the lawn arrive at a large elevated decked area, affording sweeping view and the perfect location for alfresco dining and entertaining. Within a secluded area of the garden, a delightful water feature works its way through to decorative pond. Further steps lead down to a concealed gym/Yoga room with doors opening up to a woodland view.

Parking & Garaging

To the front of the residence a driveway dressed in fine shingle provides parking for up to two large vehicles. There is a detached brick-built double garage, with electronically operated doors, power and light.
