The house is firmly in the local vernacular, built of stone and brick with a hand-made clay tiled roof. As a listed Grade II property, the house retains many period features inside as well as out, including the original fireplaces, exposed ceiling and wall timbers, and a brick floor in the reception hall. On the ground floor, the farmhouse-style kitchen benefits from the best of both traditional and modern, with a four-oven Aga sitting literally at the heart of the house. There is also the convenience of a fully fitted kitchen with an integral oven and dishwasher. The elegant dining room leads off from the kitchen, on the other side of the large open fireplace, which gives on to a drawing room with a log burner for cosy winter evenings. For summer days, the drawing room has a door leading directly out to the warm south-east facing sun terrace, bordered by a sensational mature wisteria and the large garden beyond. There is a further sitting room also with direct access to the garden. Upstairs, the dual aspect master bedroom has a fitted wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom that connects through to a dressing room beyond. This could be used as a fifth bedroom if desired. There are two further double bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes, and a family bathroom with a freestanding bath and separate shower. The fourth bedroom could also be used as a study. Gardens and Grounds The property is approached down a gravel driveway, leading to a generous parking area for several cars. The property is well screened by mature hedging and is surrounded by well established gardens, including a large pond. On the left of the drive there is a garage with adjoining workshop, also built of local stone and believed once to have been the village blacksmith, hence the name The Old Smithy.
