A spacious detached family home, with extensive grounds of just over 2 acres

A substantial detached family home, with flexible accommodation and plenty of scope for development (subject to planning), in a superb position overlooking beautiful rolling countryside. The property includes outbuildings, providing the opportunity to create an annexe or studio space, as well as grounds extending to more than two acres.

On the ground floor there is a spacious sitting room, which connects with a south-facing conservatory in an open-plan layout, with the space welcoming plenty of natural light. The ground floor also has a formal dining room with a dual aspect and a well-equipped kitchen, with plenty of storage space, an integrated double oven and hob, a dishwasher and a central island. Upstairs there is a 39ft games room, which lends itself to possible conversion. The current vendors hold architect’s drawings (available upon request) showing this room as two double bedrooms, one with en suite and an additional bathroom. We are advised that services are already in place for this. The generous principal bedroom has fitted storage, a dressing room and a large en suite bathroom with dual washbasins and a separate shower unit, while the first floor also has two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

This property has 2.2 acres of land.

Outside

At the front of the property there is a block paved driveway, leading to the carport and double garage, while the driveway continues to the side of the house. The property has a garden to the rear, including an area of lawn, while to the front, across the lane leading to the house, a five-bar timber gate opens onto a large grassy field, with a variety of mature trees and views across the countryside beyond.

The Barns Timber framed detached, spacious barns adjacent to the house lend themselves to possible future development, subject to planning, as offices, workshop or separate annexe
