A beautifully appointed family house with annexe and detached holiday cottage

Accessed from a quiet parish lane, the five bar gate opens onto a spacious parking/turning space with the drive leading to the house and the holiday cottage with a further parking area. Extensive open lawns border the drive, house and cottage and are interspersed with established shrubberies and mature trees. The whole garden is enclosed by clipped hedging. A secondary drive runs along the southern edge of the garden and could be used as separate access to the holiday cottage. The house is thought to date from 1740 and is very attractive with Ashlar Bath stone elevations under a clay tiled roof and a prominent central gable with recessed French doors makes for an appealing façade. To the west stands the detached holiday cottage. Also constructed of Bath stone and like the house it provides beautifully appointed and excellent accommodation. The rooms within the main house are spacious and there is an appealing flow of enjoyable family living spaces arranged laterally over just two floors. The large kitchen/breakfast room has traditional, quality farmhouse cabinets and cupboards and benefits from a double aspect and door to the garden. Appealing architectural features enhance the lovely interior design including open fireplaces, ceiling beams and wooden floors. On the first floor there is one bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, the principal bedroom with fitted wardrobes and two further bedrooms, a playroom/TV room a bathroom and a shower room.

The holiday cottage provides large rooms and is well appointed with two bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room plus kitchen, living room, parking and potential to create a separate area of garden and its own vehicular access.
