Junction 1 of the M50 motorway south of Upton is only about six miles distant.

Description

Corner House is believed to date back to the 1640's when it was understood to have been a farmhouse. Its original half timbered "Cruck" construction is still in evidence (thus the reason for its Grade II Listing) but this has been sympathetically enhanced by extensions that were undertaken in the early 1900's and again in the 1960's. The result is a very spacious family home that retains many of its original features blending them well with more contemporary additions. Many of the original floors, beamed walls, ceilings and a fine inglenook fireplace remain. The house how has an efficient oil fried central heating system and a recently redesigned and refitted well equipped kitchen/breakfast room. The generous accommodation also includes a porch, hall, study, a very impressive drawing room, a lovely garden room/sitting room, utility room, four bedrooms, a shower room and a bathroom that can serve the whole family or alternatively can be en-suite to the master bedroom.

The garden is a delight and clearly the pride and joy of the current owners. It is beautifully landscaped with large areas of lawn, mature well stocked borders and some particularly fine trees. A gated entrance leads to extensive off road parking and a garage. At the far end of the garden there is an area of meadow upon which planning consent has been granted for the construction of a new detached dwelling.
