DESCRIPTION Believed to date back to 1839, this delightful Grade II listed village property was sympathetically extended in 2008 by the current owners to create the spacious family home that it is now. The property offers modern living space arranged over three floors, with a wealth of character and period features that balance perfectly with more recent contemporary additions. The current owners enter the house via the door to the kitchen, which has a wonderful traditional farmhouse style, with a four door electric AGA, bespoke units with granite work surfaces, natural stone flooring and a stable door leading out to the terraces. From here steps lead down to the family room with solid oak flooring and double doors leading out onto the gardens. Beyond this is the dining room with open fire and staircase leading up to two double bedrooms and a family bathroom which are independently accessed, making ideal guest rooms.
From the kitchen a wooden staircase leads up to a glazed atrium, which blends the old and new sections of the house together; on this floor is the living room which has bi-fold doors leading directly onto the higher gardens, a double bedroom and a shower room.On the second floor is the master bedroom with a charming Juliette balcony overlooking the garden, a further double bedroom and a bathroom.
The charming mature gardens to the rear of the property are divided into two level lawns linked by stone steps and two fabulous terraces with an elevated aspect overlooking the village to the open countryside beyond.The property benefits from a driveway with parking for two cars, in addition to a single garage.
