The Property

An extended, detached Edwardian property, positioned on a country lane in an elevated setting commanding breathtaking panoramic valley views. The main entrance is via the traditional front door which leads into an inner hallway with access off to a useful utility/cloakroom. The hall, with its delightful decorative tiled floor, is centrally placed within the home, and enjoys natural light which streams in from a glazed rear door and the landing window. The staircase with handy storage cupboards leads off the hall along with doors into the kitchen/dining room and the sitting room. This original reception room, also brimming with natural light, boasts a dual aspect including a delightful square bay window overlooking the garden and view. It has an attractive parquet floor and fireplace with wood burning stove. The kitchen/dining room with its tiled floor, is one open plan room, which runs the whole length of the house. The fitted kitchen is positioned at the front and the dining area sits at the rear with french doors opening onto a fantastic wooden sun terrace. The much loved gas Aga, is used solely for cooking and is inset within a fireplace. The adjoining reception room with a wooden floor, is a particularly flexible space; depending on your own family needs as it could be used as a guest bedroom with the ensuite shower room or maybe a home office or playroom as a further door opens onto the fabulous decked area. (The gas combination boiler is located in the loft space above the ensuite). On the first floor a good-sized landing greets you, from here all rooms are accessed along with the loft access. At your own risk we would suggest you look at the attic as there might be options for conversion (subject to planning permission and building regs). The two well-proportioned double bedrooms, both enjoy superb views at the rear, the other bedroom has views across the lane to the neighbour’s orchard. The family shower room serves all three bedrooms. No onward chain.


To the right hand side of the property lies a long narrow drive with private parking for a couple of vehicles. A path to the front leads to a greenhouse and on around the property via a gate to the sun terrace. The majority of the grounds are found at the rear where the superb views are enjoyed. The wooden sun terrace connects the house to the outside and is a fantastic place to entertain. A wide and sloping shrub bed, with steps to the side lead down to the lower lawned area. A farmer’s field lies adjacent and a neighbouring paddock sits at the end of the garden. It is a perfect haven for those who love wildlife and birdlife.
