This is a property with an abundance of character throughout. The house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms and comprises approx. 2,500 square feet. It is sitting on 1.5 acres laid out as gardens divided into ‘garden-rooms’ with mature beech hedging
The house, which forms three sides around a courtyard, was originally a group of farm buildings and was converted into a dwelling in 1980. The old stone buildings which dated from the 18th / 19th centuries included a barn, a cowhouse and various stone sheds. During the conversion, the small original farmhouse was demolished. The delightful enclosed courtyard with its lawn and flower beds, can be viewed from all the main rooms: living room, library, sunroom and bedrooms.
The house has a very large open-plan kitchen-dining-and-living room. It is part of the original barn whose high ceiling gives it a wonderful sense of spaciousness that is totally unexpected in this otherwise cottage-like building. Beyond it , forming the other end of the barn is the master bedroom also with a high ceiling. Off this bedroom is an ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet.
From the living room one door opens into the courtyard and another leads into the second side of the house. This consists of two double bedrooms and a bathroom. They are reached through the lovely south facing sunroom, a large bright space with terracotta floor tiles and a full view of the garden and grounds beyond. Double French doors lead into the courtyard. Beyond the sunroom is an extensive storage area, once a garage which has potential to be redeveloped and which provides access to the third side of the house.
In the third side is a suite of rooms – double bedroom, bathroom and library . Whilst the main part of the house has been considerably upgraded in recent years this side is still in need of renovation
