This delightful Victorian detached property has been cleverly and thoughtfully extended and now provides a home of substance and character.

A panelled door with glazed aperture leads to an entrance lobby which has a window taking in views to the fields at the rear and a solid oak ledge and board door that leads to a practical pantry/storage room. The principal reception room is situated in the Victorian part of the property and has wonderful far reaching views across open countryside, solid oak flooring and an attractive fireplace with red brick arched lintel and a stone hearth with a wood burning stove.

A central inner hall has attractive travertine flooring and an oak door leads to the dining room/study which has solid oak flooring, an open fireplace with stone hearth and far reaching views across countryside.

The heart of the house is in the new extension and is formed by the kitchen/breakfast room which has a fully vaulted ceiling with Velux rooflight and is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted shaker style units with solid beech butchers block work surfaces, double bowl sink and 'Zanussi' oven and grill with hob and extractor fan above. The room has underfloor heating and travertine tiles and there are French doors leading to an extensive sandstone terrace making it perfect for entertaining. The remainder of the ground floor comprises a family bathroom which also has utility space and plumbing for a washing machine screened behind louvre cupboard doors.

The first floor is equally charming and wholly retained within the original part of the cottage and all three bedrooms benefit from stunning views across uninterrupted farmland with the principal bedroom having a large storage cupboard and oak beam on display.

There are two further bedrooms, both of a generous size and these are served by a family bathroom with matching suite and window giving stunning farmland views.

The property is approached via a drive providing parking for numerous vehicles which in turn leads to the detached double garage/workshop which is fully equipped with power and light. Immediately to the rear of the property is a stunning sandstone entertaining terrace which is accessed via the aforementioned kitchen/breakfast room which is perfect for large scale family entertaining.

Beyond this are large expanses of lawn with neatly stocked lavender borders with oak sleeper beds. There is attractive mixed hedge and borders to the front of the cottage which provide year round colour and interest. The garden benefits from a South and Westerly aspect enabling it to take advantage of the afternoon and evening sun and has stunning open countryside views.

To the rear of the garage/workshop is a beech hedge and further expanses of lawn and to the Westerly elevation of the property is a mature orchard which has a variety of trees to include apple, pear and plum. To the rear of the kitchen is a building housing the boiler and providing log storage.
