Two well presented adjoining homes in about 2.75 acres, one incorporating a large ground floor reception/bedroom with adjacent wetroom - absolutely ideal for a dependant family member among two families wanting their own spaces! One intercommunicating door provides a link between the two dwellings, offering masses of accommodation for one large or extended family, or as two separate but adjoining dwellings.
A discreet gated entrance opens out into the lawned gardens and grounds, at the far end of which are the two dwellings, one with 18th century origins, the adjoining West Wing was constructed mid 1980's. Both kitchen/dining rooms are beautifully fitted, natural stone, slate and hardwoods have been incorporated into the finish, and a lovely brick arch in the original house hallway all contribute to the unspoiled character of these homes combined with thoroughly useable modern facilities.
The M5 passes by one field beyond the raised one acre pasture paddock and stable block and yard, and a gravel track leads down from there to the houses and domestic gardens.
