About the inside.
This pristine four-bedroom home exudes luxury and comfort in every detail. The property is of a classic yet modern style, which sits comfortably in its rural setting. Its oak-framed construction is evidenced by the beautiful beams throughout. On entering the property through a charming oak entrance porch into the spacious hallway, past the study/library and the sitting room, you walk into the generous and welcoming triple aspect open-plan family room comprising kitchen/dining room/ living room, which extends across the full depth of the house. The hand-made beautifully designed kitchen is a chef’s dream with high-end appliances and granite worktops, a large island, Belfast sink, integrated dishwasher, and Rangemaster cooker, making it perfect for entertaining as it opens onto the dining area. The final portion of this room is the living area which has a set of bi-fold doors opening onto the rear terrace. On the opposite side of the hall is the sitting room where a modern woodburning stove creates a cosy sitting area and a French door opens onto the terrace. The useful study/home office enjoys views across the front garden. There is also an impressive, fitted utility/boot room and cloakroom, with access out to the rear of the property.
Progressing up the staircase, a large double height window fills the area with natural light and offers views across the rear garden to the paddocks beyond. The landing, which boasts a magnificent, vaulted beamed ceiling, leads to the four generous double bedrooms, two with en-suites, and the vaulted family bathroom with vanity unit, separate bath and shower and a feature wall. The impressive principal bedroom features a vaulted beamed ceiling, a range of fitted wardrobes and drawers, Velux windows and a Juliet balcony. An expanse of glazing at the end of the room floods it with light and provides views of the garden and paddocks beyond.
The fixtures and fittings throughout are high quality: the double-glazed windows are Danish and comprise painted wooden interiors combined with powder-coated aluminium exteriors; floors are engineered oak to the living spaces, limestone tiles to the bathrooms and utility spaces; and carpet to the upstairs rooms. The property benefits from superfast broadband via a fibre internet connection. Heating is provided via underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, which is served by an air source heat pump, which also serves the central heating on the first floor. An air circulation system is also installed. There is mains water and a private sewage treatment system.
About the outside and outbuildings.
The house is set-back from Pelting Drove, separated from the lane by a drystone wall and mature beech hedge. A pathway leads to the front door past an attractive wildlife pond surrounded by a lawn planted with native bulbs and wildflowers. There is also a useful parking space here. The secure rear garden includes an attractive terrace which offers a place to sit and enjoy the grounds. There are steps up to a lawned garden and raised flower/vegetable beds. External lightning allows you to enjoy this garden into the evening. The gravelled driveway continues through a pair of wooden gates to the side of the property, which provide privacy and security. This leads past the rear garden to the oak-framed triple bay garage (one end being enclosed to provide storage/workshop space) and an attached store room, with parking in front of the building. From here a wooden field gate leads into a level yard where a timber open-fronted barn with attached tack room is located. From here, two small paddocks with stock fencing are accessed, providing useful restricted grazing. Two stables are also located here, a smaller stone and a larger timber one which also benefits from double doors to allow larger machinery to be stored. From the top of the yard, a larger stock-fenced gently sloping pasture enclosure is accessed, from which views across to Priddy nine barrows can be enjoyed. A further gate leads on to two further level paddocks. All paddocks are served by automatic filling water troughs and all outbuildings have electricity. The grounds extend to 7.7 acres in total. With great access to local bridleways, perfect for a ride within the countryside.
