The property under the ownership of the current vendors has been lovingly restored and transformed into what is now a beautiful home full of history, character, and charm with the added comforts of 21st-century living, including super-fast broadband with Cat6 cabling throughout.
The accommodation is primarily arranged over three floors.
The former dairy, which is on a lower level, has been converted to provide a fabulous kitchen/breakfast room, retaining the brick floor and old churn-shaped hatch to pass the milk through to the old kitchen, which still features the gamekeeper's sink.
French doors open from the kitchen to the lower courtyard garden, which is perfect for enjoying the evening sunshine over a glass of wine, along with being the perfect spot for a herb garden.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a lovely room with a multi-fuel stove, that makes for the perfect snug, or an additional dining area.
A conservatory and inner hallway provide access from the side of the property to the gamekeeper's kitchen and the snug.
Leading off the grand entrance hallway, the sitting room and formal dining room are both worthy of note.
The dining room boasts wainscot paneling, 10" solid oak floorboards, and a large fireplace. The sitting room feels both elegant and cosy with exposed timbers and feature brickwork making it ideal for long winter evenings in front of the impressive Inglenook fireplace.
A study, gamekeeper's kitchen, (formerly the grain bagging room), and a large boot room with a door to the side of the property, along with two cloakrooms complete the ground floor accommodation.
Steps from the ground floor lead down to the cellar, which is now a super laundry room, complete with the original hatch opening to the courtyard garden.
The first floor can be accessed via the fabulous main hallway, along with new stairs leading from the gamekeeper's kitchen to the games room above.
The master bedroom is a luxurious space for adult living, with exposed timbers, oak flooring, high ceilings, a beautiful en-suite bathroom, and a feature fireplace with wood burning stove.
Three further large double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower, and a family bathroom are accessed off the landing on the first floor.
The original grain store has been carefully restored to provide a fantastic living space, which enjoys views over the garden. The current vendors have enjoyed using the space as a games room and gym, but it would lend itself to being utilised for a number of purposes.
The upper staircase, which is an Elizabethan feature has been beautifully restored and leads to the additional bedrooms on the third floor, and the shower room, which have fabulous vaulted ceilings and exposed timbers that emphasise the sheer history of this stunning period home.
Outside, the former stables have been converted to provide a one/two bedroom annexe with a wet room on the ground floor, a lovely sitting room with bi-folding doors to the garden and a study/second bedroom above, perfect for multigenerational families, or those that want independent living space.
A large timber-framed barn/workshop, a potting shed, and a garage complete the package.
A sweeping tarmac driveway provides plenty of parking, along with access to a further graveled area behind the annex and barn.
The garden is mainly laid to lawn, extending to approximately half an acre, with mature fruit trees, shrubs, vegetable garden, and a pretty feature pond, along with a delightful sunken garden and numerous attractive seating areas.
