THE PROPERTY

THE PROPERTY A handsome, traditionally built family home constructed of brick and flint under a tiled roof linked to an original more modest thatched cottage. The property is centrally located in large gardens bordering the River Piddle. The property has spacious well laid out accommodation over two floors and has been built in keeping with the local architecture. The main house was built in the 1980's. On the ground floor are two reception rooms (the sitting room with recessed log burner, and the dining room), a large reception hall and a large conservatory overlooking the garden to the rear. There is a charming hand built kitchen with an AGA and space for a dining table together with an adjacent utility room. A corridor links the main house with the original cottage which is lined with bookshelves and leads to a spacious ground floor study. The first floor of the main house has three double bedrooms, two bathrooms and there are two further bedrooms in the cottage, all are presented in good order. OUTSIDE Set in the beautiful open countryside of the Piddle Valley (which is a Conservation Area), set back, away from the valley road this lovely house is approached through a five bar gate into a drive with ample parking and access to a double garage with room above. The boundaries consist of mixed, mature hedges, some lovely trees and the River Piddle at the bottom of the rear garden. There is a pretty front and fabulous rear, level garden laid to lawn with a kitchen garden and a large timber summerhouse. Stone terraces provide lovely al-fresco dining or entertaining areas. A short walk down the lane will take you to the local pub, The Poachers Inn.
