A particularly handsome Georgian village house, Listed Grade II being beautifully presented and set within a highly sought after village with potential for an independent annexe.

This particularly fine period house has an imposing symmetrical facade and has enjoyed a long and varied history being occupied as a shop, a bank and is believed to have originally been built in 1666 and remodelled in 1801. The present owners have created a particularly elegant home with well proportioned rooms being beautifully decorated and retaining fine features throughout, expected with a house of its age. A short flight of stone steps and balustrade lead to the double front doors opening into a particularly welcoming reception hall with period fireplace with an open grate, a bookcase and two large south facing windows. A door leads into the drawing room, again well proportioned, with elegant period fireplace with a bioethanol log live flamed fire. There are bookcases, shelves, window to the south and a door into the inner hall. The dining room has a magnificent fireplace with contemporary electric fire and has a magnificent carved mantelpiece. There is a deep recessed drinks cupboard and a door opening to the staircase hall. There is a guest cloakroom with a tiled floor and wash basin found near the staircase and a lobby with understairs cupboard, a door to the outside and steps down to the cellar with a cobbled floor, wine bins, excellent storage space and an adjoining storeroom formerly used as a games room. The kitchen/breakfast room has an array of well designed and fitted panelled wall and floor mounted cabinets, centred around a gas fired AGA. There is also an induction hob, oven, integrated dishwasher and a terracotta floor and further French doors up into the raised courtyard. From the kitchen, a door leads into a side hall having a range of useful cloaks cupboards and shoe racks, a shelved larder and a bathroom, having a roll top bath, wc and wash basin. The back kitchen has a terracotta floor, painted cupboards and a stone butlers sink. A staircase from the back kitchen leads up to a peaceful garden room with a double aspect, fireplace with multi fuel stove and a door out into the garden. The principal staircase is elegant and light with a large window to the garden and leads to a guest bedroom with Victorian fireplace. A first floor drawing room has a fireplace with a cut stone mantelpiece and electric log effect fire. There are two windows to the south providing an excellent amount of light. The principal bedroom has excellent wardrobes and a cupboard and a fireplace. There is a further bedroom on the first floor, this room could perhaps provide an en suite bathroom to the principal bedroom, subject to all necessary consents. A family shower room has a shower, wc and wash basin. A mezzanine landing has a cloakroom, wc, wash basin and a further inner door to useful loft storage. The second floor landing leads to a spacious double bedroom with fireplace, with well preserved wooden mantelpiece and built in wardrobes. A family bathroom has a shower with a 1200cm shower cubicle, wash basin and a roll top bath. There are two further bedrooms on the second floor, one at the moment used as an office with fireplace and a range of built in cupboards.

A short flight of steps lead up to the front door and to either side cobbled paths are interspersed with mature viburnum bushes and provide a most attractive entrance to the property. The gardens to the rear of the house provide excellent entertaining space and include a raised cobbled terrace with a raised rectangular fishpond with waterfall and a variety of well chosen shrubs and plants including climbing hydrangeas, roses and pleached holly. A further flight of steps lead up to a further terrace, where there is a garden store and another short flight of steps lead up to the principal walled garden, which is lawned, has a lovely view of the village church, is surrounded by mature shrubs and has a magnificent magnolia, which is protected by a tree preservation order.
