The Property

Entrance Hall – Crossing the threshold into the Entrance Hall with its black & red original tile flooring.

Sitting Room – To the left is the Sitting Room, a light and airy space with exposed beams and a West-facing window overlooking the private front lawn. The large red brick fireplace is a cosy focal feature, with the Jotul stove atop the stone flag hearth.

Dining Room – Opposite lies a spacious Dining Room, revealing the authentic skeleton of this home with three walls of exposed beams and a small under-stairs cupboard. Again with views over the front garden, this is a highly malleable room equally suited as a Study/Home Office, Library or Music Room.

Kitchen/Breakfast Room – At the Hallway's end, with its tiled flooring to the Kitchen, featuring an electric Aga, fitted cream shaker cupboard units with Belfast sink and under-counter space, with plumbing for a dishwasher.

A good-sized room with ample space for a six-seater table and chairs, with twin windows looking onto a bank of ferns, with a low retaining wall and a part paved & gravelled path around the rear of the house. Off the Kitchen is a walk-in Pantry, a full-sized room with east facing window for cool food storage. There are open storage shelves and a copious amount of space for a fridge and chest freezer.

Utility & Shower Room – To the other end of the Kitchen, a door leads down into the Utility. This highly functional area is home to solar panel controls and two external doors leading to the rear patio and front of the house. A multi-tasking area, water and waste connections for the washer and dryer make it the spot for laundry, while the tiled Downstairs Shower Room includes a power shower cubicle, WC and corner basin.

Cider House – The conversion of the old Cider House offers another highly malleable space, flooded with light from its large picture window with original twin windows on either side and other dual skylights; this is a lovely room of new timber frame and exposed brick, made cosy by a large wood burning stove.

Orangery – Oak and glazed doors open into the Orangery - a private retreat overlooking the gardens and pond. A high vaulted ceiling wooden frame constructed with timber harvested from the neighbouring estate finishes the unique rustic feel.

Bedroom 1 – Up the original wood staircase and beyond an ancient wooden door lies the dual-aspect Main Bedroom, with a window overlooking the front garden and twin skylights to the rear. A great-sized bedroom with wooden floorboards and exposed beams creates a low partition wall with ample under-eaves storage beyond.

Bedroom 2 – A further carpeted Double to the rear aspect, with alcove space ideal for a wide wardrobe. Includes Airing Cupboard behind closing door housing the water tank.

Bedroom 3 – Enjoying exposed floorboards & beams, the third bedroom overlooks the front, with enough space for a double bed and additional furniture.

Family Bathroom – A stylish white suite in keeping with the property style, the Bathroom includes a freestanding clawfoot bathtub with shower head attachment, WC, hand wash basin and LED mirror cabinet. The room is well-lit by a skylight window and LED spotlights, with a useful eave’s storage cupboard and a pretty glass door.


Outside

Two sizeable well-kept lawns are surrounded by hedging and trees at the perimeter. At the same time, the Cottage extension is framed by gravel around the Orangery, providing a lovely spot for al fresco dining. Continuing around to the rear is a patio with a sun-trapped greenhouse and a small ex-privy outbuilding, now a functional storage area.

Throughout the spring and summer months, fruit trees, including Damson, Apple, and Cherry, harvest abundant fruit, with the hedgerows intertwining with blackberries.

Further down, a seasonal pond feeds an abundance of wildflowers and encourages a plethora of birds, insects and wildlife. Further on, an old well can be found allowing water to be drawn for the garden.

Beyond a wooden gate enclosing the gardens is a large gravel driveway, sweeping to the right towards the one-and-a-half-sized detached garage and workshop with mains electric supply. A good-sized shed and wood store make yet more practical storage. The drive turns back towards the second entrance, secured by a metal gate adjacent to the woodland.
