A striking detached period house overlooking open countryside in all just under 1 Acre.

Outwood House is a particularly handsome double fronted period house with attractive mellow stone elevation under a pitch tiled roof. The house enjoys oil fired central heating and double glazing and retains much of its inherent character including a number of period working fireplaces, reproduction beamed ceilings, exposed doors and woodwork. The house is particularly well presented and provides the most comfortable accommodation, typical of the period with well portioned reception rooms with good ceiling heights and views of the surrounding countryside from most windows. A glazed entrance conservatory leads through to an entrance hallway with turning staircase to first floor and Victorian tiled floor with doors to the main reception rooms, rear hall and utility. The three reception rooms are all of a good size and include attractive open fireplaces and enjoy countryside views. The kitchen has a range of handmade American oak fronted wall and base units with work surfaces on three walls and includes reproduction beamed ceilings and the original meat hooks are still in place. At the back of the house is a large utility room with door to rear and provides access to the ground floor bedroom with en-suite shower with W.C. On the first floor is a galleried landing leading to the four main bedrooms all enjoying lovely views over surrounding countryside. The second bedroom has plumbing for an en-suite and the family bathroom has been recently refurbished comprising a shower and freestanding bath. Outside the house has a driveway with a garden to the front and views over the surrounding countryside. The driveway extends to the side and rear of the house, providing a parking and turning area with access to orchard and workshop.


An Option Agreement exists providing the right to purchase the field in front of the house (in excess of 2.5 acres) and the two storey brick built barn, both at agricultural value. The Agreement may be exercised when certain trigger events occur.
