An impressive village residence, offering substantial accommodation and a large annexe

The Oak House is a handsome property which provides over 4600 sq. ft of accommodation, and a layout facilitating a single-storey annexe setting in the north-easterly wing. A grand entrance portal and generous reception hall offers an imposing sense of arrival with access into three reception rooms comprising an elegant sitting room with inglenook fireplace and French doors to the garden, a formal dining room and a versatile-use family room. The good-sized kitchen features units which create a subtle divide to an informal dining area, and ancillary space is provided by an adjoining fitted utility. A connecting door provides a route into an inner hall which links to a conservatory setting and the self-contained annexe rooms. These incorporate a spacious drawing room with French doors opening to a terrace, an adjoining kitchen with modern fittings, a family bathroom and two bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room. There are five well-proportioned bedrooms on the upper level and a family bathroom with corner tub. The principal room has a dressing room and en suite bathroom, whilst two other rooms also benefit from en suite facilities. The second floor features a triple aspect ‘look-out’ tower room.


The garden at The Oak House offers a lush green sanctuary, designed with a number of engaging features to create an outdoor haven which is eye-catching to every corner. The pathway at the frontage is bordered by manicured evergreen spheres with pleached trees at the front and side boundary offering structure and a pleasing sense of seclusion. Pathways provide a journey through the garden revealing a water feature, decorative ironwork structures, a formal pond with pretty aquatic plants, a parterre and manicured hedging, a wooden pergola adorned with floral climbing plants, as well as an area of lawn with specimen tree encircled with a timber bench to sit and enjoy the dappled shade. A brick wall and hedging fronts the lane with access onto a driveway providing parking and leading to the double garage, which has an upper level, studio and shower facility.
