The house is an attractive detached four bedroom property built of stone elevations to the front and enjoying views across a pleasant semi-wooded valley. It was built for and has been the home of the current owner for over twenty five years so this is a rare opportunity for a potential purchaser.
The property enjoys well proportioned ground floor accommodation, including a storm porch that leads on to the hallway. From here you can access the main rooms of the house which includes the duel aspect living room with woodburner and natural stone surround. There is also a dining room and study which benefits from views to the front. The kitchen is well equipped with windows to the side and rear and a door leading through to the utility room.
On the first floor the good sized master bedroom also enjoys views of the valley and benefits from an en-suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The property has been well maintained by the owners and benefits from double glazed windows throughout.
Garage and Garden
The property is approached via a shared driveway that leads on to a gated private driveway. The front garden is elevated above the lane with a flat area of lawn and a variety of mixed shrubs and trees. The rear garden can be accessed via either side of the property and benefits from a sheltered terrace area to the immediate rear of the property ideal for summer barbeques. The rest of the rear garden rises away from the main house and is largely laid to lawn with a small orchard, greenhouse and shrubs and a style leading to the field and woodland. The double garage has an up and over vehicle access door leading to the driveway as well as separate pedestrian access and plenty of storage overhead.
Land and Woodland
The pasture land is located to one side of the house and consists mainly of gentle sloping land leading down to a small stream and separate access to the lane. You can also access the woodland via a style adjacent to the stream.
