Believed to date back to the early 1800s the property was converted 30 years ago by master craftsmen to create an outstanding family home. The property has been in its current ownership for the last 20 years and has been lovingly cared for and improved during this time. The property is full of character with exposed wall beams and brickwork.
Entering the property through a pair of solid Oak doors into a substantial entrance hall it is immediately apparent of the size of the accommodation that the property provides. From the entrance hall a further main hall is accessed that enjoys a vaulted ceiling and that would have the ability to house the tallest of Christmas trees if required.
The main hall provides immediate access to the sitting room which is tri aspect and that contains an inglenook fireplace. There is a small hallway that provides access to a ground floor study, which contains an interesting feature of the original wheeled hoist which would have been used to load hay bales into the loft area. There is a large dining room, that could accommodate the largest of social gatherings, and a kitchen / breakfast room, that is well appointed and that again benefits from being tri aspect. Leading off from the kitchen is a separate rear porch with more than enough space for boots and shoes.
On the first floor, leading off from a galleried landing are 5 double bedrooms. All bedrooms contain character features, are of generous proportions and provide pleasing country views. The master bedroom benefits from an en-suite bathroom with full bath, double shower and two wash basins. There is also a recently refitted family bathroom.
Outside and to the rear is a formal garden that is laid to decking, lawn and herbaceous borders. There is also a railed paddock that benefits from a stable block which is comprised of 2 x loose boxes, foaling box / tack room, with hot water and power, a hay barn and garage. The garden also contains a large shed and separate greenhouse with power and light. The garden provides uninterrupted far reaching countryside views.
The property also benefits from a large (1372 sq ft) 6 car garage that benefits from remote control panel lift doors, an expansive integral workshop that benefits from both 16 & 32 Amp power supply and plumbing and radiator heating. The garage could have alternative usage such as a home office or annex accommodation, subject to the usual constraints.
To the front and side there is a lawned garden behind post and rail fence. There is a drive, secured by a five bar gate, that provides parking for multiple cars.
This property represents a unique opportunity to acquire a country home with equestrian facilities in an unspoilt location.
