The PropertyBuilt in the 1960's and originally used as the village rectory, the house has been altered and improved over the years to create a well-proportioned home with a convenient layout.
The fact the house sits within its plot, surrounded by mature gardens, gives lots of scope for further development to either side subject to the necessary consents, whether you wish to build more garaging or other extensions.
The gardens surround the property on all sides, and a driveway provides ample parking.
The gardens are mostly laid to lawn with various mature trees and shrubs, and large enough on all sides to give a feeling of privacy and enjoyment at all times of the day.
To the front are four raised beds suitable for growing vegetables, and various fruit trees for home produce.
There is a treehouse overlooking the fields, a large timber shed and a covered log store adjacent to the front porch.
Entering the property is a welcoming reception hall, a recent addition to the property with underfloor heating and attractive LED lighting.
The tiled floor leads through into the inner hall where an original sixties staircase leading up to the first floor.
Off the hall, a downstairs shower-room, WC and handy coat cupboard come in very useful.
The principal rooms all enjoy a southerly aspect.
From the hall, the triple aspect sitting room with its parquet wood flooring also has a bay-window making the most of the natural light.
A central fireplace houses a modern woodburning stove.
Also accessed from the hall is a cosy study with built-in cupboards and ample shelving and a separate pleasant dining room with a hatch through to the kitchen and French doors onto the rear patio.
All three reception rooms and the hall have the original woodblock parquet flooring.
The kitchen / breakfast room is light and airy with modern cream units incorporating integrated fridge, dishwasher, double electric oven and induction hob.
There's also a very useful matching pantry / storage cupboard, open shelving for crockery and plenty of room for a breakfast table.
To one side a useful porch leads out into the garden, whilst a third door opens through into a spacious family room / play room and separate utility room housing the oil-fired boiler and space for a washing machine.
Formally a double garage, this also has potential to create a ground floor bedroom or annexe.
On the first floor there are five good size bedrooms, the majority with a southerly aspect and all overlooking the gardens.
Two of the bedrooms have wash hand basins, whilst the current family bathroom is a good size and nicely fitted with bath and shower over.
There is a capacious airing / linen cupboard and loft access via a drop-down ladder.
