THE PROPERTY

A stylish Grade II Listed family home of significant substance and charm, well located in around 0.5 acres close to this sought after village. Entrance hall, drawing room, sitting room, kitchen/dining room, utility room & bathroom. First floor landing/family room, three bedrooms, bathroom & separate wc. Second floor double attic room/ bedroom four & five. Gated gravelled driveway, integral double garage & workshop, delightful gardens & woodland copse. In all about 0.5 acres. THE PROPERTY This wonderful Grade II Listed former farmhouse is believed to date back to the late 17th century being timber framed and plastered over two storeys under a clay peg tiled roof, with second floor dormer windows to the front elevation. The accommodation, which extends to around 2,831 sq ft benefits from oil fired central heating and has been presented, maintained and improved to the highest standards by the current owners since 2007 when they purchased the property. The property does have a small hall entrance from the front door but due to its aspect this is rarely used with the side hall leading in from the driveway in principle use. This side hall has a beautiful imperial slate floor which extends through to both the bathroom and kitchen/dining room, both of which are finished to a luxurious standard. The kitchen presents a superb range of bespoke baker and baker units, with oak work surfaces, double ceramic bowl sink, stylish copper underset preparation sink within the island unit and integrated appliances including dishwasher, bins, John Lewis fridge/freezer, wine fridge and display shelving. There is also space for a range style cooker. The quality of this kitchen is plain to see with features such as the hardwood dove tailed jointed drawers standing testament. There is good space and proportions for a dining table and chairs and delightful views down the garden with two windows and doors to that elevation. There is also a utility room, which is finished to the same high standard with work surface, sink and larder store cupboard, with space and plumbing for automatic appliances and gives access to the garage. Both the drawing room and sitting room are to the front of the property with double aspect windows, the drawing room benefiting from a characterful exposed timber and bressumer beamed inglenook fireplace with log burning stove and perch benches to either side. The sitting room also benefits from a log burning stove fireplace with the added feature of an exposed brick floor. Stairs lead to the first floor landing, which is particularly noteworthy as it adds an additional reception room to the accommodation and is currently used as a versatile family room. This could potentially be incorporated as an additional bedroom space if required, there are also three stylishly presented bedrooms and a family shower room with separate wc. A further staircase leads up to a double attic room with space to either side of the chimney breast to accommodate two further double bedrooms, as it is currently arranged. OUTSIDE The gravelled drive leads over a bridge to the property with parking and turning area to the front of the garage. The garage, which is attached to the house has double doors opening to the driveway and store room/workshop to the rear with access to the garden. The garden is principally laid to lawn with a York stone terrace leading away from the house, delightful shrub and flower beds and borders, specimen and fruit trees and boarded on one side by a brook. To the rear of the garden there is a woodland copse.
