A Stunning six-bedroom family home with an extensive garden in a picturesque rural setting.

Cherry Orchard is a substantial detached family home that offers more than 4,000 square feet of attractive, comfortable accommodation arranged over three floors. The main ground floor reception room is the 26ft drawing room, which has a triple aspect including bi-fold doors opening onto the south-facing rear terrace. This elegantly impressive room welcomes plenty of natural light and features a splendid open fireplace with an ornate limestone surround. There is also a sitting room and an adjoining dining room, both south-facing and overlooking the grounds. The L-shaped open-plan kitchen, breakfast and family room adjoins the sunny orangery with its exposed timber beams and ceiling lantern skylight. Shaker style cabinetry, marble worktops, an array of integrated appliances and a sizable Aga create a remarkable kitchen. A further reception room on the ground floor is currently used as a home gym but could be used as an office or studio space. The first floor has five double bedrooms, including the generous principal bedroom, which has its own dressing room and a luxury en suite bathroom. Also on the first floor is a shower room and a family bathroom with a separate WC. The second floor has one further double bedroom, a shower room and a play room or games room.

The property is set in extensive gardens and grounds with views across the picturesque surrounding countryside. At the front, the gravel driveway provides plenty of parking space and access to the garaging block, which has a garage and two carports. The grounds also include a stables block, a shed and a summer house, while the south-facing garden has paved terracing, an ornate water feature, rolling lawns, an orchard, numerous mature specimen trees and established shrubs and a gate leading to an open meadow, which extends to approximately 500ft.

This property has 5.92 acres of land.
