Description The Lime House dates back to the mid-18th Century with later additions, and is situated on a quiet no-through lane on the edge of the village. The current owners have undertaken sympathetic updating throughout, including converting a former barn into a fabulous annexe, and it is extremely well presented throughout, with many original period features, creating a very special family home.
Accommodation The kitchen/breakfast room is dual aspect, with a family eating area and French doors opening onto a terrace. It comprises a good range of units, a Belfast sink and an oil-fired Alpha-range (used for cooking, heating and hot water).
The sitting room has a wood burner and provides a comfortable snug/family room with doors leading to the gardens. Steps lead to a study/occasional guest room. The drawing room is dual aspect, with feature fireplace and woodburner, and a large bay window creates an additional seating area. Completing the ground floor is a dining room, useful utility room and downstairs cloakroom.
On the first floor the master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and views over the gardens. There are a further three double bedrooms, all with good storage, and a family shower room.
The detached annexe is a fabulous addition, with a large sitting/dining room, shower room and adjacent store (which has the potential to be converted to a kitchen). A mezzanine level has a bedroom.
Gardens and Grounds The Lime House is approached via a gravel drive, with plenty of parking. There is in addition a carport, further stores and outdoor seating area.
The gardens are to the front and rear, mainly laid to lawn with established borders, and there is also a vegetable garden with raised beds. There is a useful period glasshouse.
