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.
