Kitchen / Breakfast Room
Through the timber-framed porch, the beautiful stone-built home welcomes you into the entrance hall, where the staircase leads to the first floor, and doors open to the lounge, kitchen/breakfast room, and cloakroom. The lounge is a particularly characterful room, featuring exposed wall beams, and a gorgeous stone fireplace with wooden mantle, brick hearth, and wood burning stove. There are two arched windows to the side, two windows and an opening into the extension, and access to the second reception room. The fabulous single-storey addition to the house provides a sitting/dining room overlooking the garden, with natural light streaming through triple aspects, two sets of French doors onto the terrace, and dual roof lanterns. The country-style kitchen/breakfast room affords huge potential to design your own ideal environment. Currently, there is ample space and storage, integrated appliances, a sink and drainer, quartz worktops, and space for a fridge/freezer. Beneficial to convenient living is the separate utility room adjacent to the kitchen.
The landing across the length of the property has an airing cupboard, and access to all four bedrooms – three doubles and a single – and the family bathroom. The 14’x16’ dual aspect master bedroom includes an en suite shower room. Bedroom two is a similarly large dual aspect room, with fitted wardrobes. Both the en suite shower room and bathroom are mid-way through completion, but already showcase on-trend and high-quality fixtures and fittings.
In its secluded location, the property is approached through a walled boundary and via the multi-vehicle gravelled driveway to the detached twin garage. The spectacular gardens overlook rolling fields beyond and present the opportunity for all manner of outdoor activities. Predominantly laid to neat lawn, there is also the terrace from the sitting/dining room, patio area, sizeable vegetable plot with space for greenhouse, and wonderful pond with rockery. Past the side lawn is the more sheltered courtyard garden – a mixture of gravel and slate areas, with planted borders, and a specimen tree.
