An exceptional period thatched property that has been exquisitely restored in an attractive village setting.
A lovely Grade II listed timber house which, in part, dates back to the 17th century that has been beautifully restored, extended and refurbished. Clever design combines the contemporary with period features creating an outstanding house, set in well-kept, lovely gardens which back onto the paddock and open farmland beyond.
The house is set well back from the road behind a hedge and an extensive lawn with a pond and borders. Immediately adjoining the road is a timber and brick barn. The gravelled drive leads to a courtyard area with a central island with clipped hedge and trees. Opposite the house is a substantial brick garage block surmounted by a clock tower, which includes a large store/ workshop, wine store and potting shed. Subject to the necessary planning permission both the garage block and barn could be converted to further accommodation.
Immediately to the south and enclosed on two sides by the house is a south facing terrace with a low sandstone wall and views of the adjoining countryside. Steps lead up to a lawn which continues around the side of the house with a ha-ha backing onto the enclosed paddock. Below this lawn is a knot garden with central raised pond and fountain surrounded by low stone walls. One of the features of the garden is a circular lawn surrounded by well-established yew hedges, at the centre of which is a gazebo. A path leads to a vegetable garden with greenhouse, enclosed by a brick wall and hedges, beyond which is the orchard and fruit cage.
