Occupying an enviable position, ideal for families in a no-through road overlooking the village Green, this most attractive, detached Grade II Listed property boasts an enormous amount of character and period features throughout including fireplaces, many exposed beams and boxed bay windows. The property is complemented by beautifully landscaped South facing gardens, a detached double garage/workshop, and has the benefit of an independent one bedroom ground floor annexe, which can also be incorporated into the main accommodation.

Believed to date from the mid-16th century with later additions, the property provides a wonderful, spacious family home with flexible accommodation arranged over two floors. The ground floor accommodation boasts three charming reception rooms: a family room with open fireplace leading off the kitchen, a sitting room with a fabulous inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, and a study/playroom with views of the garden. The kitchen/dining room, which has been extended in more recent years, is ideally situated at the back of the house enjoying a lovely outlook over the garden. The kitchen with a range of fitted units and a 4-oven gas-fired AGA, opens to the particularly light dining area with two sets of French doors opening to the terrace and garden beyond. In addition, there is a useful external laundry room. Continuing the ground floor, the annexe is accessed from the entrance hall providing the flexibility for the accommodation to be incorporated into the main house. With its own front door, it comprises a kitchen/sitting/dining room, a bathroom and a double bedroom, ideal for a family member or as extra income.

Accessed via two separate staircases, the first floor provides a large landing space with study area, walk-in attic room, four bedrooms and the family bathroom which has a raised rolltop bath set in the large, boxed bay window. Two of the bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms and of note is the principal bedroom suite. Situated at the back of the house with the lovely feature of a large balcony to enjoy the view and the garden from, the principal bedroom is a particularly light room with walk in wardrobe, a shower room and a range of fitted wardrobes.


The property is approached over a gated gravel driveway leading to the rear of the property and to a parking area in front of the garage/workshop, which also provides excellent storage space. The gardens are a particular feature of the property and provide a most attractive setting. A large terrace arranged off the rear of the house, is an ideal place for relaxing and for al-fresco dining. The garden is made up of areas of lawn with mature planting, hedging and trees including a separate area with fruit trees, berry bushes and a vegetable garden with raised beds situated along the rear boundary with open fencing to the adjoining attractive field. Within the garden are a summerhouse, a perfect place to relax and a greenhouse which adjoins the house. To the front of the house the garden has the pretty feature of the village brook running along the boundary.
