Description

This period detached home was built nearly 500 years ago. Over the centuries, the house has been sympathetically remodeled and extended to provide a wonderful family living environment with good sized reception areas with an abundance of original charm and character. Throughout the house there are plenty of original period-style windows maximizing not just only light but also some magnificent views towards the open countryside.

The everyday entrance to the house is to the rear, through an open porch which leads to a lobby with a guest cloakroom/shower. The flooring on the ground floor is either of solid wood floorboards or original brick/tiling. There are three principle reception rooms including a drawing room with a wood-burner, a sitting room also with open fireplace and inset stove and an open-plan kitchen/dining room together with a further family room to the rear. The kitchen area has a bespoke range of hand crafted solid wood wall and base units and fitted gas fired AGA.

Moving upstairs, there are five bedrooms and a family bathroom/WC. Many of these rooms have interesting features and some stunning views as mentioned before. Between two of the bedrooms there is a walk through cupboard which may provide a potential Jack and Jill en suite if needed.

There is a secondary staircase to the second floor where there are two further interconnected bedrooms/store areas.

On the outside and adjacent to the house is a large garage with a bi-folding door, currently used as a workshop with its own wood burner. There is an outside toilet, coal store and potting shed. To the front of the drive there is a three bay open cart lodge providing additional parking.

The house itself is set in a mature parkland style garden with a variety of trees and shrubs dotted amongst neatly manicured hedging. There is a disused tennis court upon which sits an array of solar PV panels providing a useful additional income.
