Property Description

This beautiful detached, period house enjoys a fine centre-of-village location set back and screened from the road within mature and private gardens and grounds of approximately 0.46 of an acre. The current owner has skilfully and lovingly restored and refurbished this beautiful house and erected a luxury, detached, self-contained barn annex within the grounds, perfect for those with dependent relatives.

The accommodation comprises an entrance hall with two large reception rooms both with inglenook fireplaces and exposed timber beams. The kitchen / breakfast room is fitted with bespoke cabinetry, solid oak work surfaces with an inset one and a half sink unit with mixer tap and drainer, pantry cupboard, integral dishwasher and a gas-fired Aga plus space for a fridge-freezer. Just off is a large utility / boot room with space for the usual white goods and a cloakroom w.c.

Upstairs, there are four good-sized bedrooms including the master suite with dressing area and luxury ensuite with designer sanitaryware including a roll top bath. The family bathroom also boasts Villeroy and Boch sanitaryware and again with a roll top bath and shower cubicle.

The annex accommodation comprises a large vaulted, open-plan kitchen/ dining / sitting room fitted with contemporary cabinetry with oak work surfaces and a range of integral appliances. There is a ground floor ensuite bedroom and a first floor home office / bedroom 2. There is an adjoining study space, making this accommodation so flexible particularly for those with dependent relatives or indeed space to work from home.

Outside, a gravelled driveway provides parking for multiple vehicles and is screened from the road by hedging. Side access leads to the rear garden, which is laid predominantly to shaped and manicured lawns with well-stocked flower and shrub borders and beds, a generous paved, terraced patio and to the rear of the garden is an additional detached home office. The plot approximately 0.46 of an acre and enjoys excellent levels of privacy and seclusion.
