Purkis House has benefitted from a comprehensive programme of extension, refurbishment and improvement during the current owners' tenure. Substantial side and rear extensions have created wonderful additional living space, notably the dining/music room, a utility, ground floor shower room and boot room as well as two additional bedrooms upstairs. A beautiful AGA kitchen installed by 'Knights Country Kitchens' of Clare forms the heart of the home and is complimented by four receptions, seven bedrooms and five bathrooms. Enlargement of the 'in and out' driveway has created ample parking for multiple vehicles and there is the additional benefit of a double cart lodge and workshop. Delightful formal gardens measure approximately 2 acres and contain mature trees and hedging as well as sweeping expanses of lawn with various areas of interest and sheltered seating.
