Key Features:

Tenure: Freehold

The property, once a forest dwelling and now extended to provide a fabulous combination of traditional features with modern fittings which add a touch of luxury. The property occupies a generous plot of just over 0.8 of an acre with outbuildings including an impressive Oak Framed garage/carport with substantial lean too log store.

The impressive entrance to this lovey home occupies a delightful green oak traditional porch with wooden front door leading into the entrance hallway. Stepping in you are immediately drawn to the fabulous low rise and turn staircase to the first floor. Solid Oak flooring, decorative cove extends beautifully through the entire property. The sitting room lies to the front, is dual aspect with a pretty bay window overlooking the garden. A feature stone fireplace with inset, dual fuel log burner, storage cupboard to the side and display shelving provide a welcoming focal point to the room and the decorative coving adds to the original style features. The dining room is just across the hallway, once again a dual aspect room with plenty of natural light and an ideal place to formally entertain. The kitchen / breakfast room is a fantastic room, having been extended by the current owner to provide a bright and practical space perfect for families. The one end has been skilfully designed with a glass roof to allow maximum light and enjoy a lovely view across the open countryside. A hand crafted arrangement of both painted and oak styled wall and floor mounted units provides ample storage and the granite work surfaces provide a touch of luxury. A feature bespoke designed collection of units encased the electric AGA which is one of the highlights of the room (available upon negotiation) and tiled flooring completes the country style and offers under floor heating. A utility / boot room with a matching glass roof provides ample space for laundry appliances and a door to outside as well as a continuation of the tiled flooring. A ground floor cloakroom completes the accommodation on the ground floor.

Moving to the first floor a fabulous open landing gives access to five bedrooms, all are generous rooms with bedroom five currently being used as a study. All rooms have great views over the neighbouring countryside and the master suite is a dual aspect room with a pretty bay window overlooking the gardens. The en-suite bathroom is fitted in a luxurious style with modern fittings including a separate shower cubicle and luxury tiling to both walls and floor. Bedroom two also has a dual aspect and an equally luxurious en-suite shower room. The remaining three bedrooms, share the use of the family bathroom which again is modern and well equipped with tiled walls and flooring. Bedroom four conveniently has a return door into the family bathroom so this can also be used as perhaps a guest room en-suite, if needed.


The property is accessed directly from the forest via a cattle grid and rollalong electro-magnetic gate. The driveway provides ample parking and leads to the attractive oak framed double car port with lean to log store to the side. Overhead storage / loft space and power/ lighting. The majority of the gardens lie to the side and rear with an extensive lawn with patio areas adjacent to the house. Mature trees and flower beds and borders add interest and the gardens are extremely private.
