A delightful village house with fabulous accommodation and a stunning garden

The Vale is a stunning village house set in beautiful gardens that have been carefully designed creating a very special environment, and feeling of seclusion and privacy.

The accommodation is elegant and well-proportioned and the ground floor reception rooms centre round a charming reception/dining hall with an impressive sweeping staircase. There is a large and lightfilled kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke painted cabinetry and a 4-door Aga, and french doors opening out to the terrace.

The charming drawing room has an open fireplace with attractive stone mantlepiece, and looks out over the garden. There is also a study/office, and utility room and cloakroom on the ground floor. Upstairs on the first floor there is an impressive master bedroom suite, and three further bedrooms, one en suite bathroom and a family shower room. The staircase leads up again to a further large living space, currently used as a second study and sitting room, but which would also be suitable as another bedroom, family room, office or games room.

The fabulous gardens are an important feature of the property and have been beautifully designed and landscaped, with mature trees and hedges surrounding formal borders and planting, creating a mix of 'rooms' and open spaces.

The property is approached across a gravel driveway which provides plenty of parking beside a very attractive oak framed car port and store.
