From the spacious entrance hall, a door leads through to the elegantly proportioned drawing room with a large and attractive open fireplace, and an under stairs cupboard. From the sitting room there is access to a good sized study benefitting from fitted office furniture. Also approached from the entrance hall is the delightful dining room which leads in to the kitchen/breakfast room with an AGA and a walk-in larder, integrated dishwasher, an induction hob and electric oven. Access to the cloakroom is via a small hallway which leads through a stable door, into a generous utility room, with sink and storage. The first floor is approached via the turn staircase. At the far end of the landing is the principal bedroom with en-suite bathroom and dressing room with generous storage cupboards. There are two further double bedrooms with inbuilt cupboards and a family bathroom, and a separate WC. Bedroom four is currently used as an office. All rooms have delightful views.

This property has 2.55 acres of land.

Outside

The house is approached via a long single track lane with a turning into the driveway through the five bar gate. The generous driveway cuts through the well maintained front garden which is laid to lawn and includes various mature and well stocked borders and established trees. A paved path leads across the garden to the very impressive and characterful front door. To the right of the driveway are outbuildings including an old stable with two loose boxes, a tack room and storage, and a separate barn and store currently used for logs. At the top of the drive is additional parking in front of the double garage and double car port. The gardens surround the house with the rear section hosting an orchard, fruit cage and raised beds and a greenhouse and composting area. From the garden there is access via a gate to adjoining 1.5 acre field which has direct access to the road. Including the garden, the total plot is approximately 2.55 acres.
