Cross Keys is a stunning listed village property believed to date from the 16th Century and enjoying a pleasant location on Pye Corner, overlooking greensward.

The property is entered via a six panelled door to a stylish split level reception hall which has a large window to the front elevation, an attractively tiled floor and a square arch opening to the inner reception hall giving access to the reception rooms. This is a fantastic area being fully glazed with French doors to the courtyard, making it ideal for entertaining. At the end of the reception hall is a trapdoor which leads to the cellar.

The charming sitting room has an impressive inglenook fireplace with oak bressumer above and a wood burning stove set upon a brick hearth. There are detailed carved ceiling timbers with ogee mouldings, studwork to the walls and painted floorboards. A square arch from the sitting room leads to the dining room which can also be accessed via glazed French doors from the reception hall. This room is delightful with exposed brickwork, attractive wall and ceiling timbers and provides views to the front garden.

The kitchen/breakfast room forms the heart of the house and is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units with solid beech worktops and integral appliances to include an oven and grill, hob with extractor hood over and dishwasher. It has a fully vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers on display, exposed flint and brick work, slate tiled floor and French doors accessing the courtyard.

Entered from the reception hall is a large study/snug with wood effect flooring and a dual aspect to the courtyard. Beyond this is a fourth bedroom which has a vaulted ceiling. To the rear of the property accessed via the breakfast room through a square arch is an inner hall which leads to the playroom overlooking the courtyard which has a part vaulted ceiling and a red brick chimney breast. This room could readily be used as a guest suite as it is adjacent to the fully tiled family bath/shower room with a matching white suite.

The first floor is equally charming with stairs rising from the inner reception hall leading to the principal suite. This stunning room has a fully vaulted ceiling and a magnificent crown post on display, set above a tie beam with extensive timbering to the walls and ceiling. A four panelled door leads to an en-suite shower room with oak frame work. The second bedroom benefits from views to Pye Corner and has a fully vaulted ceiling with a wealth of exposed timbers and an impressive red brick chimney breast with an inset cast iron Victorian fire grate. A ledge and board door leads to storage space with a door accessing the loft.

It would be fair to say that Cross Keys is a truly unique property arranged around a central courtyard and provides extensive and versatile accommodation that can be utilised in a variety of different ways.

The property is approached via a gravel drive providing ample parking and in turn leads to the front door. To the front elevation of the property is a pretty walled garden which is stocked with a variety of shrubs and plants providing year round colour and interest. The central courtyard is perfectly positioned boasting a Southerly aspect, allowing it to take advantage of the all day sun and provides a secure and private space. It is ideally placed for entertaining and can be accessed from both the kitchen/breakfast room and the reception hall. It is paved on its perimeter and has an area of lawn to its centre. It benefits from side access and there is a glazed and panelled door which leads to a store room equipped with power and light.
