The property has been sympathetically improved
by the current owners over many years. The house is extremely well presented and there is a general feeling of understated luxury and a fine attention to detail.
The renovations did not end in the house, the
gardens have also been carefully designed.
There is an impressive entrance hall, with original
period staircase. Either side of the main entrance
hall there are two well proportioned reception rooms, both with lots of features including period fireplaces, high ceilings, attractive bay windows and views over the village green and pond. The first reception room is used as a formal drawing room complete with open fire and working shutters. The second reception room
is used as a study and has been fitted by Smallbone with bespoke cabinetry in natural wood giving the study its sumptuous feel.
The kitchen / living area is at the heart of the house. A spacious 850 sq ft of light and airy space naturally divided into 3 living spaces, the kitchen, a dining area and a formal sitting room. This area has underfloor heating and a Jutul log burner (market leaders in wood burners and stoves).
The kitchen is a stylish hand built affair, with hand
painted grey cabinetry, a beech worktop and
bespoke antique breakfast bar with zinc top. There is a Miele oven and AEG induction hob. The kitchen area has a dual aspect with bifold doors opening out into the garden.
The space outside the kitchen has been traditionally laid with reclaimed cotswold stone and provides a lovely South-West facing sun terrace. The paving leads around to the front gardens past the pond and well. The entire garden has been expertly landscaped
to provide an established and low maintenance
space. There is also a comprehensive lighting
scheme throughout the grounds.
The dining area has an oversized feature bath stone fireplace with aga and a table that seats 14.
There is a formal sitting room off the kitchen / dining space and is used by the current owners as the children's play room, but could provide a large formal sitting room.
There is a lovely boot room with plenty of storage and space for all the familys coats and boots which has direct access out to the service garden, with a wood store, an outside tap and direct access to the garage.
Upstairs there are 5 double bedrooms, a family
shower room, ensuite bathroom and family bathroom.
The master bedroom suite spans over 35 ft with
attractive wooden built in wardrobes. Overlooking the garden.
The two bedrooms at the front of the house are of particular note with barrel ceilings.
