A truly stunning individual character conversion offering a versatile and spacious level of accommodation approaching 2400 sq ft and spanning two floors, finished to a high specification with a great deal of thought and attention to detail.

The property retains much of its inherent features and character with many interesting elements including vaulted ceilings with exposed king post and trusses, internal exposed brickwork, reclaimed pine doors and deep skirting. This combines with a wonderful light and airy homely atmosphere with many rooms benefitting from dual aspects and enhanced by tasteful decoration throughout.

Over more recent years the property has undergone a sympathetic programme of refurbishment including a simply stunning open plan dining kitchen with high vaulted ceiling, exposed timbers and internal brickwork and having dual aspect with French doors leading out into the garden. The kitchen is beautifully appointed with a generous range of bespoke units, granite work surfaces and high quality integrated appliances. This links through to two additional reception rooms including a formal dining area and well proportioned sitting room with open fireplace and French doors leading out to the courtyard garden. In addition to the ground floor there is a large utility room, useful boiler/boot room and ground floor cloakroom.

Accessed off an inner hallway is a well proportioned dual aspect master suite with contemporary ensuite facilities. This area is currently utilised as the master bedroom but alternatively would make an excellent guest or annexe suite.

To the first floor there are three further double bedrooms leading off a versatile landing with useful study and reading areas, all packed with features including exposed beams and wonderful views through Velux skylights across the generous established garden and countryside beyond. In addition there is a modern bathroom.

The property occupies a deceptive plot which has been lovingly landscaped and established over many years and includes a central courtyard which is accessed from the main reception and kitchen, creating a wonderful outdoor living/entertaining space which benefits from a southerly aspect capturing much of the day's sun.

Electric gated access leads down the drive to the rear of the property which provides access to a large area of hardstanding. Period brick and pantiled outbuildings provide useful garage and workshop space including open fronted cart shed providing a double width car port.

The rear gardens are immaculately kept and beautifully landscaped providing a delightful outdoor area to sit and relax in a high degree of privacy with large lawn, well stocked perimeter borders as well as a productive vegetable garden.

Overall viewing is the only way to truly appreciate both the idyllic location and superb accommodation on offer.
