A rare opportunity to own an exceptional family home on the edge of this most fantastic village, with delightful gardens and grounds and an established income from 3 holiday cottages. THE PROPERTY Situated on the edge of this most popular village, first glimpses of this wonderful property are most impressive with its very pretty red brick faade under a pitched slate roof. On first entering the property there is a real sense of charm, space and light with a very good-sized hall with beautiful flag stone flooring. The property has undergone a very extensive programme of works by the present owners and has been cleverly upgraded over the years, producing a perfect juxtaposition of old and new. The property, which is surprisingly not listed, is very well presented and offers incredible and very flexible family accommodation. The hall leads perfectly into a fantastic family kitchen with large flag stone floors, wooden beams, and incorporating a number of wall and base units. There is also plenty of room for a large breakfast table. Also on the ground floor is a TV/snug room with a woodburning stove and reading area, with views over the village and countryside beyond. Also worth a special mention is the dining room, which has also been used as a playroom or study, such is the huge versatility of this incredible property. There is also a laundry area and a cloak/shower room on the ground floor. A very pretty wooden staircase leads up to the principal bedrooms on the first floor, with three fantastic double bedrooms and a family bathroom. On the second floor are two further bedrooms, ideal for children or guests. The property is also situated alongside Orchard Cottage, which could easily be incorporated back into the main house giving a perfect two bedroomed annexe. To the front of the house a pathway separates a small lawn to one side, with a large, paved terrace to the other, ideal for al fresco dining. The main parcel of garden wraps around the Eastern boundary and is mainly laid to lawn interspersed with a variety of mature trees, shrubs and plants. There is also a paddock forming the boundary to the North, with shelter. The property offers ample parking , as well as a garage with artist's studio above, and a detached barn/workshop/store. All in all this is truly wonderful property in an idyllic yet very convenient location. HOLIDAY COTTAGES ORCHARD COTTAGE Orchard Cottage, which could easily be incorporated into the main house, is a very spacious two bedroomed cottage sleeping 5 people. The property is bursting with character and charm and has been very successfully holiday let by the present owners. There is a private terraced style garden, ideal for children and pets, with wonderful countryside views. THE BOTHY The Bothy forms part of an old coach house and has three large bedrooms, sleeping 7-8. The front door leads to a hallway, which leads perfectly into a large living/dining area and recently refurbished kitchen.
