Property description: A truly glorious, Grade II listed period residence of character and space in a secluded setting with grounds circa a third of an acre in this much sought after village.

The original house has been transformed by later additions yet retains an abundance of character and charm, seamlessly blending a period cottage with more recent open and modern living spaces. The current owners have beautifully refurbished, extended and enhanced this rural home creating the superb home you find today.

Upon entering the home, you are greeted by a sizeable, welcoming entrance hall that in turn gives way to all the principal reception rooms. There is a stunning formal sitting room with a beautiful inglenook fireplace amongst numerous other hallmarks of the original cottage. Across the entrance hall there is then a fully fitted kitchenbreakfast room with underfloor heating which continues into the glorious timber frame reception room with French doors leading to the rear garden. This lovely room is the ideal dining room with wonderful views across the gardens and countryside beyond. In addition, there is a modern utilityboot room and a ground floor cloakroom.

Upstairs on the first floor are three bedrooms, all of which are a generous size. The master bedrooms has an en-suite cloakroom whilst the remaining bedrooms are serviced by the family bathroom, which is fully fitted but offers scope to be reimagined and redesigned by the next owner. There is a further stairwell leading to a second floor room, prime for creating an office or further bedroom.

The current vendors have enhanced the property considerably, both in terms of redecoration and remodelling. We thoroughly recommend an internal inspection at your earliest opportunity.
