This classic Georgian house based around an earlier 17th century cottage offers elegance and cosiness all in one home. The original features have been retained and the rooms are bright and airy, giving a feeling of space. The layout provides flexible living options with a self-contained annexe and ample garaging.
The house, with the sweeping driveway to the front, is of beautiful symmetrical proportions with a Palladian porch leading to the front door.
To the ground floor there is a drawing room with sculpted fireplace surround, a sizeable dining room with period features and the original 1600s sitting room with French doors to the garden. Also on the ground floor is a good sized study with an inglenook fireplace. Stairs lead down to an extensive cellar with two large rooms and a wine cellar.
The warm and welcoming kitchen/breakfast room has a four oven Aga as well as an additional oven and hobs. A roof lantern makes the room feel light and airy. There is a useful utility room and walk in larder. To the rear of the house is a boot room and shower.
The first floor is accessed via the original Georgian staircase. The two bedrooms to the front and the family bathroom are part of the original cottage whilst the two rear bedrooms, with a Jack and Jill bathroom, are located in the Georgian section and enjoy the high ceilings typical of this period and benefit from views over the garden.
On the second floor there are two further bedrooms with vaulted ceilings.
The former Coach House has been thoughtfully converted into an annexe comprising a sitting room, kitchen/dining room, bedroom with dressing room and a bathroom. This is an ideal space for a relative or guests to enjoy their own privacy.
The gardens include formally laid out lawns with large hedgerows, mature trees together with grounds that could be fenced off to form a paddock.
There is a single garage as well as a double garage providing ample parking.
