Owner's Comments

“We have had some great parties and barbecues here since the house and gardens make such a sociable space. There's plenty of room for friends and family to stay the night too. We have found it to be a house for all seasons. Bracing walks in the forest in autumn, winter evenings by the fire, watching the birds nest in the blossoming apple tree in spring and sundowners by the fenced fish pond in summer.”

“It's wonderful to be able to just walk (or ride) out of the house straight into the forest just a few yards away.”

The hub of the home is the delightful triple aspect, open plan kitchen living room, partially separated by a central feature Morso fireplace with inset woodburning stove. The kitchen has been sensitively refurbished in a range of traditional painted cabinets with ample granite worktops. There is a door to each of the rear courtyards and integrated appliances include an induction hob, range, Bosch dishwasher and butler sink. Oak flooring extends throughout and white painted exposed beams and timbers create a cosy feel in the kitchen dining area and sitting room. There is an understairs cupboard and the inner hall leads to the dual aspect sitting room which is centred upon a feature painted wood fireplace with tiled surround and freestanding log-burning stove. Double casement doors open to the pretty gardens via a patio terrace.

A patio area leads to the summer house with covered seating area and ornamental pond which is an idyllic resting or entertainment venue.
