Set off a private lane, the main accommodation was originally on a single floor, comprising, living room, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. More recently a first-floor loft has become the main bedroom suite. In addition, the adjoining barn has become the main living and entertaining space, linked to the main house by a covered walk-way across a sheltered courtyard.
The courtyard itself is a superb morning suntrap with a doorway to a vine-covered pergola terrace, framed by a low wall. With lovely views across the surrounding parkland, this is a perfect spot for al fresco dining and the 10x5m swimming pool is set nearby.
Lawned areas and level pastureland extend from the buildings with magnificent mature trees and orchard area with a variety of fruit trees. Further out some10 hectares are grazed and hay cropped by a local farmer.
This is an ideal property for large summer gatherings where there is also a choice of private and shaded areas for peace and quiet. Without being luxurious, the property has immense character and while it is comfortably habitable throughout the price takes into account some further updating.
A sheltered courtyard, 14 x 8m, is a delightful morning suntrap, formed between the original house and the converted barn. A doorway leads through to a vine covered pergola terrace, framed by a low wall and with lovely long views across the property’s pastureland. Swimming pool, 10 x 5m, with paved surround and safety roller cover. Timber garden store, 6x4m, for gardening equipment, games and outdoor furniture. Small, covered woodstore.
15.45 hectares of garden and level pastureland, studded with mature trees, including a massive spreading oak and orchard area with apple, pear, cherry, plum, fig and walnut trees. Small additional paddock across lane. Beyond the immediate parkland area, some 10 hectares are grazed and hay cropped by a local farmer under a SAFER contract with about 5 years to run.
