  • Bedrooms: 5
A 'chocolate box' period property with quite a difference! This fabulous five bedroom extended Grade II Listed home cleverly combines character features with stylish modern day open plan living amounting to over 3000 sqft of accommodation. As you would expect from a cottage with origins dating back to 1480, the house retains a wealth of charm with Inglenook fireplaces and log burning stoves, exposed ceiling beams and timbering. This is combined with a superb barn extension that includes a 28ft vaulted kitchen/dining room with oak beams, a central island with granite worktops and a balcony overlooking the garden. The five bedrooms are divided between the old and the new and served by three refitted bathrooms. There are three reception rooms and a useful utility/cloakroom. Outside two separate gravelled driveways provide ample parking, with the addition of a single garage and large shed. The wonderful established gardens amount to 0.85 acre and enjoy complete privacy, with level lawns and mature trees, patio sun terrace and views. An outhouse with bedrooms and shower room complete this fabulous family home.
