Beyond the spacious entrance hallway, there is a rather unique and intimate bar-room or dining space, which could work equally well as a study or reading room.

The sitting room is a relaxing space with an attractive wood burner providing a lovely focal point. This flows to a bright and airy garden room that has an outlook of the grounds and bi-folding doors to the patio, creating an environment that seamlessly blends the inside with the out. The kitchen/dining room lies at the heart of the home and has an array of cool white units, wooden worksurfaces, a large Aga, a central island and plenty of room for a family-size dining table.

On the first floor, there are four good-sized bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom. The principal bedroom benefits from an ensuite bathroom.

Outside, the grounds surrounding the house extend to almost one acre and are landscaped with a lawn, an orchard, several trees, a patio and a wealth of mature shrubs, colourful flora and a lovely wildlife pond. There is also an attractive, brick outbuilding which could be used for a multitude of purposes.

At the front, the property is approached via a shared driveway that gives access to a private driveway and area for parking. There is a large, detached garage with a workshop that could be converted into a self-contained annexe, subject to the necessary consents.
