Upon entry into the entrance hall, attention is drawn to the characterful Victorian tiled flooring, setting the tone for the entire residence. Notable features include lofty ceilings and a captivating switchback staircase, enhancing the grandeur of the interior.

The ground floor offers four inviting reception rooms: a sitting room, dining room, breakfast room, and snug/study. Each room boasts its own unique charm, with working fireplaces adding warmth and providing picturesque views of the garden and countryside. Period details such as picture rails and alcove storage adorn the rooms, adding to the property's timeless appeal.

The kitchen, the heart of the home and features fitted units, granite worktops, and a central island. An oil-fired AGA nestled within a fireplace adds character, complemented by a slate hearth. Adjacent to the kitchen, a boot room, pantry, and utility area ensure practicality meets style.

Ascending the staircase reveals five spacious double bedrooms, each offering tranquil vistas of the rural surroundings. Bedroom 1 features ample built-in storage and a cast iron fireplace, while bedrooms 2-4 also offer convenient storage solutions. The family shower room and newly fitted bathroom boast underfloor heating, adding a touch of luxury to everyday living.

A spacious loft room awaits at the top of the stairs, offering extensive storage space and potential for various uses. It serves as an additional feature of the property, providing versatility and further enhancing its appeal to prospective buyers.

Between stone pillars, double wrought iron gates open to reveal a spacious parking area, with the driveway extending to a recently constructed double garage featuring electric doors, power, and lighting. Additionally, the current owners have erected a wooden stable block on the premises. Surrounding the property, the gardens envelop it in natural beauty, adorned with mature trees, shrubs, and flowering plants. Predominantly consisting of lush lawn, the garden also includes a charming stone patio offering panoramic views of the countryside. To the west lies a quaint orchard boasting a variety of apple and plum trees, accompanied by a sizable storage shed. It's worth noting that the owners currently rent the neighbouring paddock from a local farmer, and this arrangement may potentially be continued by the new owners.
