A large sash window looks out to the front and bathes the room in natural light. Adjacent to the sitting room is the dining room with fireplace, gas fire, alcoves with built-in cupboards and a window looking out to the rear garden.  This spacious room can comfortably accommodate a table to seat eight to ten guests and features painted wood floors and a picture rail.  Open to the dining room is the study with built-in cupboards, shelves and a window to the side garden. Leading from the dining room is the kitchen with original 'Barrel' French doors opening out to the garden and Spanish terracota floor tiles.  A range of bespoke country style kitchen cupboards and built-in plate rack are painted in a tasteful soft taupe colour.  The kitchen features a 1 1/2 bowl ceramic sink, ceramic hob, integrated oven, original fireplace with built-in cupboards along with space for dishwasher and both an undercounter fridge and freezer.  Off the kitchen is the hardwood conservatory, currently housing the hot tub (this may be available by separate negotiation), with natural slate floor, opening windows, blinds and doors to the rear garden.  This fantastic space could also be used as a breakfast room or additional seating area.  To the rear of the kitchen is a dual aspect utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine, inset sink and wall mounted, gas fired water heater. A door leads to the fully tiled shower room with corner shower enclosure, wash basin and WC.

Stairs, with stripped pine banister, rise to the bright first floor landing which leads to three of the bedrooms and the family bathroom. To the front is a good size double bedroom with picture rail, arched cast iron fireplace with black marble surround and sash window with front aspect. A second double bedroom, again with picture rail, benefits from views over the garden. A single bedroom with sash window and picture rail looks out to the front. The fully tiled family bathroom comprises; corner bath, wash basin and WC.  

Stairs lead up to the second floor with side dormer window allowing plenty of natural light.  On this floor are two further double  bedrooms (five in total), the first being open to the stairs and currently presented as a games room.  This space, with exposed beams, vaulted ceiling and sash window, could also be used as a further sitting room/teenage den or combined with the adjacent bedroom to create a principal suite.   The fifth bedroom is a notably generous double with vaulted ceilings, large alcove and dormer window with front aspect.


Well-tended gardens surround the property on three sides. To the front, enclosed by low stone wall, mature hedges and wrought iron gate is a low maintenance gravelled area and paths leading to the front door and side garden. A wrought iron gate opens into the deceptively spacious side garden with green house and raised vegetable beds and path leading past the conservatory to the rear garden.

Also accessed from the kitchen is the rear garden:  To the side of the kitchen, covered by a pergola planted with a prolific grape vine, is a patio area ideal for outside dining and entertaining.  Raised borders edged with sleepers are planted with an array of lush, exotic planting including a large tree fern.  A further patio is neatly tucked away, just around the corner, with space for outdoor furniture.   To one side is a border, currently fenced off and used as a chicken run.  An area of lawn, surround by mature trees including an Indian Bean Tree and a Foxglove Tree, leads to a pond with fish included.  At the far end of the garden is a detached tandem garage/workshop with, light and power, pedestrian door to the garden and a garage door opening onto a hardstanding offering parking for three cars.   Adjacent to the garage is a large wooden outbuilding with stained glass double doors, which is currently used a studio and storeroom but would also make a great home office, business space or gym.  A gated path leads between the two buildings to the off road parking area.
