This substantial and stylish village residence offers an excellent array of accommodation extending to just under 2,500 sq. ft.

It is perfectly suited to families and couples alike, offering balanced and spacious accommodation that is immaculately presented, and impeccably finished throughout. Upon entering the home the quality, light and size is immediately apparent. The sizeable entrance hall gives way to all the principal reception rooms, with a recently fitted stone floor extending seamlessly across much of the ground floor.

On the first floor there are four generous double bedrooms arranged around a lovely light gallery landing. The master bedroom and bedroom two both benefit from modern en-suites, whilst the two remaining bedrooms, that are an excellent size, are served by the separate family bathroom. All four bedrooms offer spacious built in or walk in wardrobes and the large second bedroom also benefits from a sitting area.

The partly walled garden wraps around the home boasting sunny south and westerly aspects and offers a great degree of privacy. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with an attractive mix of lavender and box borders. There are both front and rear terraces, ensuring all day sun. The large paved terrace abutting the rear of the home is the perfect position to entertain and dine outdoors in great privacy and enjoys uninterrupted views across neighbouring farm and pasture land. There is a further piece of garden behind a gated boundary wall, perfect for compost heaps, a kitchen garden or keeping chickens. A public footpath runs through this area providing easy access to footpaths for country walks directly from the property. There is ample parking for several vehicles in addition to the integral double garage.
We thoroughly recommend an internal inspection to appreciate both the size and quality of accommodation and the house's position in this lovely village.
