The Old Stables enjoys a beautiful Westerly aspect with views over the adjoining gardens and open countryside beyond and in total extends to just over 0.2 acres. Converted around 2005, much of the charm of the former barn has been retained, along with new materials, including under floor heating throughout the ground floor, exposed beams and exposed bricks.
The exceptional ground floor accommodation gives a fantastic sense of open plan living and is accessed from the entrance hall with stairs to the first floor and a useful storage cupboard for outside wear. The spacious double aspect sitting room includes a feature fireplace with inset woodburner and double glazed doors opening onto the patio. A step leads to the kitchen/dining room comprising a range of units, wooden worktops with inset butler sink, range style cooker and integrated appliances, including dishwasher and fridge/freezer. Adjoining the kitchen is the utility with a oil fired boiler and space for laundry appliances, along with a cloakroom beyond.
To the first floor is the family bathroom and four bedrooms all overlooking the gardens. Two of the bedrooms have en suite shower rooms and the principal bedroom also includes a walk in wardrobe.OUTSIDE
Accessed along the village lane, a shared drive leads to the private gravelled drive providing a large space for parking and turning, with access to the double garage beyond and gardens.
Adjoining the house, a paved terrace extends the width of the property, providing a fantastic sitting area to enjoy the attractive outlook. Predominantly laid to lawn, the garden is fully enclosed with mature shrubs and planted borders, along with a gravelled path leading from the parking area.
Detached from the house is the superb red brick outbuilding with a double garage on the ground floor and a separate staircase to the rear leading to the first floor, which is currently used as an office and for storage.SERVICES
