Built in approximately 1990, this stone built village house has been extended over the past few years to provide well-proportioned open plan family living accommodation, offering a large kitchen/dining/living room with underfloor heating, four double bedrooms, separate utility room and office, and double garage. Behind the house is a good sized lawn and vegetable garden, which then leads into a large paddock with a small lake, which offers the potential to develop into a glamping or Airbnb opportunity.
About the inside:
Entering through a large entrance hall with a cloakroom to one side, the property starts with a good sized music/reception room with the staircase rising to the first floor, and then opening into the contemporary kitchen. Fitted with pale green units and granite worktops with a double butlers sink, the kitchen has a built in larder cupboard, space for a large electric range cooker, and underfloor heating. This opens into the light and airy family/dining area with French doors onto the terrace, access into the useful utility/boot room (which houses the cylinders for the air source heat pump), and archway into the separate 22' sitting room which features a woodburning stove creating a cosy space.
Upstairs are four double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The principal bedroom enjoys a vaulted ceiling, dressing area and en-suite bathroom.
Accessed from the rear terrace is a separate space divided into an office and laundry room.
About the outside:
The property offers plenty of parking for several vehicles to the front with a five bar gate leading to the rear. The driveway leads around the terrace to the double garage which offers scope for conversion (subject to planning). Beyond is a large level lawn bordered by fencing, mature shrubs and trees, and a fenced vegetable garden with a greenhouse. A gate leads into the field which is full of wild flowers in the summer, and offers views all the way to Alfred's Tower. There is a small secluded spring fed lake in addition to further outbuildings including stables and a composting toilet.
The property offers exciting potential to develop into a glamping or Airbnb business, or smallholding subject to consent.
