THE PROPERTY

A handsome, traditionally built family home constructed of brick and flint, centrally located in a generous garden. This lovely property is approached via a quiet lane into a private drive sweeping to the side and rear of the house to a large gravelled parking area overlooking the rear garden. The property has spacious well laid out accommodation over two floors and has been built with lots of character and includes an original seventeenth century granary, converted to preserve its original charm. The main house, built in the 1970's, has spacious and light accommodation over two floors. On the ground floor are two reception rooms (the granary room and the sitting room), a large reception hall and a generous study. There is a charming kitchen with an AGA, larder and utility room. A lobby divides the main house from the granary which is ideal for boots, coats and dogs or simply a quiet, light seating area. The first floor has four double bedrooms, a bathroom and includes a master bedroom with adjoining bathroom, all are presented in good order but would benefit from repainting and recarpeting. Set in the beautiful open countryside of the Piddle Valley and hidden from view due to the private location the house is approached via a private drive with ample parking and access to a double garage. There is a fabulous front and rear level garden with rolling lawns, a kitchen garden and a stone outbuilding (a former eel house). There is a large pond and a paddock with access via a path to the village street to the village shop and pub. NB we understand the Granary element of the house is listed Grade II as a building of historical or architectural importance.
