The five-bedroom dwelling, named Hilltop House, comes with an adjoining barn and a small commercial annexe which was once the local village store and, more recently, a hair salon. This area has now been subdivided to provide further ancillary accommodation.

Inside, the property is spacious and beautifully presented. Reception rooms include a family room with an open fire and double doors that open to the garden, a sitting room with a bay window and an open fireplace with an inset wood burner, and a large playroom. The bright galley-style kitchen/ breakfast room is fitted with cream units, wooden worksurfaces and doors that lead to the veranda. The adjoining conservatory offers lovely views over the garden and has a door to the sun terrace. The ground floor is completed by a dining room, a boot room, a utility room and a large study which links to the playroom.

Outside, private gardens extend to approximately 0.8 acres and include expanses of lawn, mature shrubs, an extensive range of fruit trees, plus a highly productive vegetable and fruit garden with a large polytunnel and greenhouse. A veranda at the front and side of the house provides a charming, covered seating and dining area while hard landscaping softened by raised flower beds connects the house and the barns.

The array of outbuildings includes a large garage workshop and further storage spaces.
