An attractive and un-listed period house with gardens of just under 0.5 acres in a village setting

The Feathers is an attractive period house with plenty of character, and now in need of some updating. The property has a wealth of original features, and includes four reception rooms. Of particular note is the stunning octagonal library, with a fabulous upper gallery and vaulted ceiling. The circular walkway of the upper gallery is filled with bookshelves, and looks down into the library/study below which has a brick fireplace and woodburning stove. The accommodation is well laid out and includes a large entrance hall, leading to the comfortable and cosy sitting room which has an open fireplace with an attractive wooden surround. The galley kitchen is well equipped with floor and wall units, and leads through to a formal dining room. There is also a study and useful utility room. Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom and bathroom, and the upper gallery of the library, are accessed via a staircase at the north end of the house, and there are three further bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate WC, accessed via an additional staircase.

This property has 0.45 acres of land.

Outside

The gardens lie mainly to the far side of the house. There is a lovely old brick and flint wall dividing the rear garden from the front of the house, and steps lead to a beautiful and secluded area, mainly laid to lawn and interspersed with beautiful mature trees, hedges and shrubs. Beyond this is the old vegetable garden. The property is approached off the village lane through a wooden 5-bar gate across a gravel driveway leading to a parking area in front of two timber garages. The Feathers is part of an old farmyard and shares the driveway with the neighbouring property.

Situation
