A characterful detached house, with an unexpected gem at its centre, set in landscaped grounds
At its heart, Magpies showcases the stunning retained features of its 18th century barn, around which the extended house has been sympathetically designed to provide an abundant, versatile family home. Decorative double doors at the entrance open into a light-filled reception room with fireplace focal point and beyond this, the centrepiece of this property is revealed. Open to its historic roof rafters and showcasing ancient exposed timbers, the sitting room offers an impressive setting to sit and enjoy the warming ambience of the wood-burning stove whilst also providing space for dining with an outlook to a garden terrace. The adjacent farmhouse-style kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with contemporary cabinetry topped by granite worksurfaces and features an island unit within its design. The roomy, galleried landing offers breathtaking views to the floor below and provides an area to lounge with access out to a sunny, south-facing balcony. A walkway gives access to two first floor stylish en suite bedrooms. Three further well-appointed en suite bedrooms are situated on the ground floor where there is also access to a large utility room which doubles as a gym. The various outbuildings offer options for supplemental accommodation and are currently presented as a games room with adjoining shower room; a home office; a large workshop or studio space, along with storage buildings and garaging.
The delightful, well-maintained gardens at Magpies have been skilfully designed to create a picturesque outdoor sanctuary. Colourful shrubs and flowering perennial plants have been selected to form pleasing displays which are complemented by ornamental and fruit-bearing trees set within swathes of lawn. A series of outdoor ‘rooms’ are crafted by wall enclosures adding interest on a journey through the garden, where features include a courtyard with brickbuilt oven and an outdoor pool setting with a paved surround providing an area for lounging. Beyond the boundaries, the open countryside offers far reaching views and there is ample parking on areas of hardstanding, as well as under the cover of carports. All set in 0.78 acres
