Description

From the moment we stepped inside, we were completely in awe. It is so rare and exciting to find a property which has retained such a wealth of original features and with the traditional layout virtually untouched.
With its wide hallway and elegant staircase, the generous footprint is immediately apparent as is the beaming natural light which floods through the array of south-facing floor to ceiling sash windows, just one of the features we really love about this home.
Every room is packed with visual appeal and treasures to be found, starting with the glorious drawing room, where the peaceful garden views pour through both the grand bay window and tall sash window, a room with space for all the family. Exuding a much cosier feel, the sitting room is much more of a quieter spot, where afternoons merge with the dusky evenings in front of the charming log-burning stove. Stepping into more vast modern proportions, the once formal dining room has been opened through to the kitchen, maximising light and space and creating a functionable space with a real heart-of-the-home feel. Complete with historical Aga, the kitchen is such an inviting room, where more of those enviable garden views pour through the dual aspect windows and where double doors lead out to the Veranda, another favourite feature of ours where endless mornings can be spent with your morning coffee whilst you enjoy the changing seasonal views.
Leading up the elegant staircase, the first floor accommodation has been designed with the perfect symmetry you could hope to expect from a fine Georgian home. The principal bedroom complete with en-suite bathroom is the first room to encounter, mirroring the drawing room beneath with its fine bay window and tall sash window. The remaining five bedrooms which we have to mention are all generous in size, all lead from the sweeping landing in addition to the family bath and shower suite and separate loo.
All in all, this is a truly remarkable home where handsome architectural scale has managed to entwine with all the charm and warmth you could hope to find within a beautiful country home such as this.

Outside...

Abutting the quiet country road which whistles through the heart of this ever-popular village, the main driveway sweeps in beyond the five bar gate allowing not only plenty of space to park but a moment to enjoy the un-interrupted garden views and bountiful display of Wisteria which drapes over the eastern elevation. A spectacular Beech tree dominates the centre of the garden which casts a enchanting shadow beyond the south facing aspect the garden enjoys. Stepping from the charming veranda, the initial lawned portion of the garden is slightly elevated, sloping down past the Oak tree to the orchard and wild meadow. Well maintained kitchen gardens enclosed by box hedgerow line the westerly aspect in front of the timber summer house, another stunning vantage point to enjoy.
A thoughtful addition, the detached summer house is further space to be enjoyed, particularly in the warmer months.
The double garage complete with electric doors can be found to the westerly aspect, where you will also find an additional driveway which is useful for access to the less formal back door. A wide range of brick outbuildings adjoin the garage, essential storage spaces needed when you have grounds approaching one acre to care for and maintain.

Franks Thoughts...

Perhaps one of the most memorable homes we have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. The light that fills this home is nothing short of magical, highlighting the remarkable Georgian features that can be found in abundance both inside and out of this stunning country home.
