THIS is a wonderful detached residence occupying a plot of around 2.45 acres, within this stunning rural setting.

'Little Bridge' is an outstanding residence within a delightful and peaceful setting.

Having been lovingly improved by the current owners, the home now offers the traditional character of a period home, with the charm and efficiency of modern homes.

Occupying a sublime plot of mature gardens and a large paddock, the home offers wide flexibility for any prospective purchase.

Built in approximately 1760, the original body of the home was later extended, almost doubling in size, with the current accommodation cleverly arranged over two floors.

To the ground floor an entrance porch leads to the spacious lounge beyond, with modern stone tiled flooring, designed in a period fashion, a bay window and an inglenook fireplace with wood burner centre piece.

A restored wood staircase leads to the first floor, while a door gives access to the study.

A quarry tiled floor runs through this area, into the sizeable pantry and downstairs cloakroom, before you reach the kitchen diner.

To the first floor, a large landing area is filled with an abundance of natural light, with porthole windows overlooking neighbouring fields.

The space could easily be reconfigured to create a third bedroom or study, if desired. To the far end the main bedroom is an exceptional size, with a dual aspect outlook and doors leading to a balcony above the dining room.

The second bedroom is an excellent size again, with the added benefit of a fitted wardrobe and a splendid en-suite bathroom.

The family bathroom sits between the two, a hugely spacious area with a three piece suite and shower over bath.
