This wonderful farmhouse has 18th century origins and has been adapted and extended to create a very comfortable family home. The private property offers spectacular far reaching southerly views to Alfred’s Tower, from beautifully tended grounds of 0.74 acres. The house itself provides flexible accommodation over two floors. The main entrance hall opens to two formal reception rooms, a double aspect drawing room with a central fireplace, wood burning stove, bookshelves, floor to ceiling windows and a wide sliding door opening to the terrace. The equally spacious dining room has display shelving and a wood burning stove set in a stone fireplace. The rear stair hall leads to a large farmhouse kitchen breakfast room at the heart of which is a two hob oil fired Aga. To one corner is a pantry with plumbing for a water softener and utilities. The lobby has a stable door to the garden, a cloakroom and the study. On the first floor, the double aspect spacious master bedroom has a range of fitted wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom with underfloor heating, a raised bath and separate walk in shower. There are a further three double bedrooms, the largest of which could easily be divided into two. The first floor is completed by two separate bath/shower rooms.
