A most attractive village house providing substantial and versatile accommodation with a wealth of character enjoying large gardens and grounds amounting to approximately 8 acres (3.23 hectares). The property was formally a Public House and has a host of period features including fireplaces and exposed timbers. On the ground floor are four reception rooms. The large dining room includes a personal lift to the master bedroom on the first floor and has double doors to the adjoining sitting room. The sitting room extends the full depth of the house and has a wood-burning stove set in an attractive exposed brick fireplace. To the rear is a most impressive former function room which now provides an additional family/games room, ideal for entertaining, and, being a conversion of the former stables, the room features high vaulted ceilings and exposed timbers. The kitchen boasts an oil-fired Alpha range and adjoins the breakfast room. There is a useful large cellar which also houses the oil-fired boiler serving the heating and hot water. On the first floor the master bedroom has an ensuite shower room, plus the lift down to the dining room. There are three further bedrooms and the family bathroom.
To the front vehicular access is gained on to a drive which adjoins a timber car port beyond which is the tandem garage/workshop. To the rear of the house is an attractive courtyard area ideal for seating and entertaining. There is a brick-built store and gate to the car port. The gardens extend into large formal lawns with a mixture of mature small trees, a vegetable area with greenhouse and associated composting. There are two large timber stores with double doors to the front on concrete bases. Beyond the gardens the grounds then extend to extensive grazing land, currently divided into two areas enclosed with a mixture of stock fencing and hedging. To the far end of the field a vehicular right of way gives access over an adjacent farm track and on to the road providing separate access. The gardens and grounds amount to approx. 8 acres (3.23 hectares).
