About the inside.
The property is accessed via the light and welcoming entrance hall, located centrally, and provides access to the majority of the living accommodation. The current owners have utilised this space as a dining area, which can comfortably accommodate an 8-person dining table and chairs. There is a useful cloakroom to the right and stairs ascending to the first floor. Off the hallway to the right is a dual aspect sitting room providing stunning views across rolling hills, and has been fitted with a wood burning stove, creating the perfect space to relax on a winter’s day. The bright and airy kitchen, across the hall, has been fitted with a mix of wall and base units, fridge and Belling double cooker, yet provides plenty of potential for its newest owners to enhance and upgrade to their desired specification.
Continuing from here, you reach the utility area, which can also be accessed via a door from the front of the property. Here you will find additional base units, providing excellent storage. As you reach the end of the utility room, there is access provided to both the garage and boot room. The garage which will accommodate one vehicle, benefits from a first-floor workshop area. Having been installed with power, lighting and dormer style window, this area could provide an excellent space to create a home office. The boot room has also been fitted with base units and sink and houses the utilities. There is access to the rear gardens and paddocks beyond.
The conservatory is at the rear off the hallway and provides stunning views over the gardens and paddocks to rolling hills and mature trees, creating a relaxing and peaceful space in which to unwind. There is access to the gardens. Ascending the stairs to the first floor, four generously proportioned bedrooms can be found. Two of the bedrooms are located at the front of the property, one of which has been used by the current owners as a home office and has built in wardrobes. The principle and second bedroom also have the benefit of built-in wardrobes, while also enjoying uninterrupted views of the grounds. The principal bedroom has an ensuite shower room, while the remaining bedrooms are serviced by the family shower room.
About the outside.
Murtry House is approached by a driveway leading to a parking area, bordered by mature greenery. This area provides ample off-street parking for multiple vehicles. There is also a pathway to the right leading to the rear of the property. The pretty, tiered rear gardens adjoining the house have been mostly laid to lawn and includes a patio area creating a wonderful space for alfresco dining, attractive planted borders, potting shed, and decking area. A set of steps descend to a five-bar gate where two stone barns are situated amongst the grounds.
The first barn, has been re-built as a vehicle store and implement store, the latter currently used as a wood store. The second barn which was a former stable, has standard domestic power and lighting and provides storage for cider production. The mezzanine level provides further additional space. Subject to relevant permissions, these outbuildings provide great potential to provide ancillary accommodation.
The grounds, span approximately 5 acres, and are bordered by the Buckland Brook. With areas of Willow and Italian Alders, these paddocks have been sympathetically rewilded by the current owners, creating a haven that has allowed local wildlife to thrive. Previously partly an orchard for cider production, many of the fruit trees remain on the land, including dessert apples, cider & cooking apples, eating & perry pears, plums, and wild cherries. As you continue your journey through the grounds, you will find vegetable patches, and fruit cages containing gooseberries, redcurrants, white currants, grape, blackcurrants, jostaberry, and raspberries offering potential new owners a chance to experience a taste of 'The Good Life' .
From the northern paddock there is access to The Cross and church in the heart of the village, and the A362 beyond. There is also direct access to the Monarch's Way which passes through the Orchardleigh Estate's woodland and golf course.
