An impressive 16th Century property situated towards the edge of the village with countryside views, triple garaging, ancillary accommodation, stables and paddock grazing extending to over five acres. Video Tour Available on Request.

Dating back in part to the 16th Century with later additions, the property has been sympathetically modernised over the years to create a deceptive and substantial family home. Situated towards the outskirts of the village, it offers privacy with far reaching countryside views, garaging, separate ancillary accommodation, stables and paddock grazing extending to over five acres. Constructed of stone and brick beneath a tiled roof with double glazed windows, gas fired central heating serving radiators and wet under floor heating in the kitchen area of the main house.

Internally the property provides comfortable and characterful accommodation combining period features with all the conveniences of modern family living. The sitting room features exposed beams and a fireplace with a wood burning stove. The dining room, which connects the sitting room via a snug/office to the kitchen, has a fireplace as the main focal point with a multi-fuel burning stove. The room affords views from its bay window across the garden and terrace. The spacious open plan kitchen has a number of fitted bespoke cupboards and drawers with a Rangemaster electric oven, fridge/freezer and Bosch built-in dishwasher. There is a central island featuring a double Belfast sink and granite work surfaces. There is an additional seating area to one end of the kitchen and double glass doors at the opposing end lead to the rear terrace. A separate utility room and separate boot room, both with space for washing machine and tumble dryers complete the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor is the principal bedroom with dressing room area and en-suite shower room which benefits from fantastic views across the garden and countryside. There are three further bedrooms; one with an en-suite and the other two bedrooms share a further shower room.

Outside
Whilst the house offers the full package, there is the addition of a detached stone built annexe which has a modern contemporary feel. The annexe includes a garden room with bi-folding doors leading to the gardens. In addition, a fantastic bedroom and shower room above feature a picture apex window with far reaching countryside views. The gardens are laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs providing privacy and plenty of space for children to play. The detached double garage with electrically operated doors and carport add substantial storage space for cars with storage space above. The stable block comprises two stables and an open fronted store area with power and light connected. There is paddock grazing and a natural pond, encompassed within 5.13 acres and with a separate vehicular access.
