AGENTS REMARKS At the centre of the house is a magnificent galleried reception hall, with exceptional high vaulted ceilings incorporating several skylight windows providing an abundance of natural light into the heart of the home.

Located off the hall is a large formal drawing room, with a beautiful exposed brick Inglenook fireplace, incorporating a wood burning stove and attractive window seating built in to either side of the chimney breast. There are windows to both the front and side elevations, and French doors open onto a rear facing patio, enjoying splendid views over the gardens and grounds.

There are three further reception rooms including a Dining Room, and a Snug, which is currently used as a Study, and a charming part glazed family room which is open to the kitchen.

The large farmhouse style Kitchen provides ample space for informal dining, and has been fitted with an extensive range of beautiful hand painted cabinets, with contrasting black granite worktops incorporating a peninsular island as well as a combination of quality integrated and free standing appliances. Attractive natural stone tiled flooring from the kitchen into the family room, which provides a light and cosy living space enjoying magnificent far reaching views over the land.

Adjoining the kitchen is a side hall and Boot Room with a WC off it, and an adjoining Utility Room with fitted cabinets matching to the kitchen.

First Floor

On the first floor there are four bedrooms in total, which are all of very generous proportions, including a lovely master bedroom suite with a side facing balcony and rear facing window enjoying stunning open views across the land and pond.

The Master bedroom benefits from a dressing room, with built-in open fronted wardrobes and shelving, and a separate En-Suite Bathroom, fitted with a quality period style suite, including a free standing claw foot bath, as well as a contemporary large shower enclosure.

Two of the three remaining bedrooms share the use of a generous period style bathroom, again fitted with both a freestanding bath and shower enclosure, including both a freestanding roll top bath and large contemporary style shower enclosure, with the guest room benefiting from a second En-Suite Shower room.

A notable and deliberate feature to the design of the house is the high pitch of the roofline, with space saving trusses creating 2 large attic rooms which would provide additional potential for conversion, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent.

Externally the property is accessed from the private lane, with twin entrances to the house, and to the stables and barns.

A large American style steel frame barn is located between both gateways, and provides space for a workshop and dry storage. The barn has been granted planning permission to be replaced by a larger two storey barn of brick construction with slate roof. The building benefits from permitted development rights which could allow conversion to a residence. This would suit a large 4 bed detached property.

There are three further brick and render buildings including a secure tack room, gatehouse and switch room. The tack room also has permitted development rights, which would allow the extension and conversion to a residence which could be a guest, groom's or relative's accommodation.

There is a stable block comprising 11 individual loose boxes set around a concrete yard retained by post and rail fencing with a gated entrance for additional security. Beyond the stables is a 60x20 metre all weather arena, with a professional Martin Collins surface.

The property sits in approximately 13 acres in all, comprising formal gardens and several paddocks, which are all retained by post and rail fencing. There is a large pond which enables efficient drainage to the fields.

N.B. There are an additional 7 acres of land adjoining the property which the current owners rent.
