Bedrooms: 5
This magnificent Grade II listed property boasts a rich history dating back over 200 years. It was originally constructed by two brothers who each kept a cottage for themselves. Over time the property has been transformed into a charming and spacious family home. The current owners have taken great care to enhance the property's features by reconfiguring the layout, refurbishing the interior and adding a stunning oak extension with a glass facade. This new addition provides a serene space to enjoy the beautiful garden views.

Nestled within peaceful grounds spanning circa 0.45 acres, this property offers a tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The accommodation is spread across three floors, which can be admired from the central staircase upon entering the hall with feature open fireplace.

The flow from the hall into the kitchen, utility and snug is simply delightful. The kitchen boasts handcrafted cupboards with a Welsh dresser-style unit, and is finished with stunning quartz work surfaces, a butler's sink, integral appliances, and an electric AGA R7. The original rooms are brimming with character, featuring panelling, wooden floors, and feature fireplaces including a log burner in the elegant dining room. However, the pièce de résistance is the oak and glass drawing room, complete with an exposed stone and brick wall, underfloor heating, log burner, a vaulted ceiling with oak roof trusses, and two sets of French doors leading out to the garden.

On the First Floor you will find four bedrooms, including a guest suite with an en-suite shower room and dressing room. There is also a study and a luxurious family bathroom. But the real showstopper is the boutique principle suite on the Second Floor with views from all four aspects. This spacious and airy room boasts a dressing room, an en-suite bathroom with panelled walls, double wash hand basins, walk-in shower and a free-standing cast iron roll-top bath - positioned perfectly for stargazing on clear nights.


The garden is truly delightful, boasting ample parking at the front that leads to a double garage with space above to convert to a home office orpotentially an annexe, subject to planning consents. Previous planning consent for a home office has now lapsed. The property is nestled in stunning grounds of 0.45 acres, featuring various stone paved terraces, lush lawns, pretty planted beds and mature trees and hedging. In summer the pergola is adorned with grapes and hops, adding a touch of natural beauty to the already stunning landscape. The feature pond, complete with a Monet bridge, give a relaxing feel to the garden. Of particular note is the fantastic raised deck, nestled in the treetops and offering a breathtaking view of the grounds. This deck is perfect for entertaining guests well into the evening, with its strategically placed lighting creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. Additionally, the property boasts an original Well with a hand pump, adding to the charm and character of this already impressive property.
