Displaying a wealth of character, the property is immaculately presented and tastefully styled to a 'Home & Gardens' standard together with an excellent self-contained annexe and large gardens of ¼ acres.
The present owners have created a truly unique home with the benefit of an integral one-bedroom annexe which has its own private access to the side. Currently, the annexe is successfully used as a holiday let providing an additional income whilst it also lends itself as prime accommodation for a dependent relative. With an interconnecting internal door, the annexe can equally be utilised as an extension to the accommodation for the main house if required with the whole extending to just under 3,000 sq.ft.
The accommodation has been sympathetically updated to a very high standard whilst retaining the original charm which includes sash windows, exposed beams and traditional stone fireplaces. Modern finishes include bespoke shutters, underfloor heating in all bathrooms and smart Velux windows within the annexe. The ground floor is entered through an impressive entrance hall with flagstone flooring and bespoke fitted boot/coat storage. The ground floor WC has been beautifully re-fitted upkeeping with the Victorian heritage whilst there is a traditional cellar below which provides useful storage. The heart of the home is thoughtfully arranged at the rear designed to spill into the south-facing garden through French doors comprising a large kitchen/family room and a separate living room, of which has a large inglenook fireplace. The kitchen is a particular feature of the property, fitted with bespoke handmade units, the kitchen features a large Aga complete with companion oven, integrated dishwasher, wine cooler and a breakfast bar with built-in swivel TV above. Dual-aspect French doors off the family room open to the garden terrace which has been cleverly landscaped to serve as outdoor living space in the summer months. There is a large walk-in larder providing ample storage.
Upstairs, the first floor comprises four double bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate shower room. The delightful master suite features generous built-in wardrobes, plus further 'his and hers' dressing room adjoining an en-suite shower room.

The south-facing garden extends to 0.25 acres enjoying a great degree of privacy screened by high hedges and backs onto open paddock land.
