DESCRIPTION A splendid Four/Five bedroom country house within approx two acres of grounds with stables, barns and countryside views. The property originally was two cottages but has been completely re-built and extended to the style, specification and standard of a brand new house.
Upon entering the property is a vaulted entrance hall with an abundance of natural light. From the hallway is a downstairs cloakroom and utility room/boot room which houses the boiler, units for storage and plumbing for white goods. A triple aspect kitchen/living room is the main family room with an incredibly well appointed kitchen and ample space for dining. The kitchen comprises an array of wall and base units with built in dishwasher, fridge/freezer, electric range cooker, central island with stools and built in slide and hide electric sockets. The dining/sitting area is substantial with a stone faced fireplace with wood burner, oak flooring and beautiful views over the gardens. The formal dining room overlooks the rear gardens and has ample space for a table to accommodate twelve to fourteen people. The dining room could easily be used as a play room, home office or an additional reception room if required. The sitting room features a wood burner with stone surround, a dual aspect view over the gardens and glazed french doors opening into the kitchen/living room.
Stairs rise to the light and open galleried landing leading to all five of the bedrooms. The master bedroom benefits from an ensuite shower room, countryside views and a dressing room providing storage and access to further eaves storage. All three further double bedrooms have the benefits of either countryside views or views over the private gardens surrounding the property with one of them having access to storage in the eaves. The fifth bedroom with velux window could be used as a single bedroom, study or brilliant nursery. The family bathroom has been finished to an exacting and immaculate standard with a bath, separate shower, toilet, wash hand basin, heated towel rail and storage.
OUTSIDE Approaching the property is a private driveway meandering to a substantial parking area for up to ten vehicles and leading to the barns. The gardens for the house are at both the front and back with a large expanse of lawn with a variety of shrubs, flowers and bushes.
A short distance from the house is an attractive block of three stone faced stables with stable doors and an adjoining garage. Behind which is a barn which has vast potential to be created into either a holiday let, annex or office space, subject to obtaining the necessary consents. A further substantial barn, currently used as storage provides a fantastic dry space for a multitude of different uses. Both the barns and stables have been renovated and are in a great condition. The land is to the rear and side of the property which is separated with post and rail fencing and heading making it completely enclosed.
