Tucked away on the outskirts of a popular village is this detached house built by our vendor in 2004. The property has the charm and appeal of an older style property but with modern day conveniences. The property is in a rural location with no immediate neighbours and overlooks an established garden. Adjoining the property is a useful yard and circa 4 acres of sloping pasture and small woodland.

The property is approached through a formal porch into a sizable dual aspect sitting/dining room with an open fireplace to one end housing a multi fuel woodburner. French doors lead into a separate kitchen/breakfast room with a range of eye and base level units. To the rear of the property is a large utility room and WC. A door from the utility room opens out to the brick paved driveway. Also on the ground floor is a study and further reception room which are now accessed via an external door. A doorway between the study and sitting room has been blocked off but could easily be reinstated.

On the first floor are 4 double bedrooms (1 en-suite) plus a study/hobbies room. The master bedroom enjoys a view over the garden and has both an en-suite shower room and built-in wardrobe. The other bedrooms are all doubles and offer ample space for furniture. The study/hobbies room has restricted head height but could be used for a variety of purposes. The family bathroom has a matching 3-piece suite with a shower over the bath.

In front of the property is a lawned garden that is enclosed and full of interest. Next to the porch is a level patio with built in stone BBQ. Beyond the garden is a yard accessed via a secondary gate off the nearby parish road. The yard has a generous garage, stable and other storage sheds. In total the garden, driveway, and yard amount to circa 0.40 acres. A track gives access to the paddocks that are found to the higher side of the property. In total both paddocks amount to circa 4 acres and are free draining and sloping. Previously these paddocks have been used for grazing animals and horses. Finally, there is a small area of young woodland located at the top of the track.
