Outstanding village house with outbuildings, landscaped gardens and glorious outlook.
The Garden House is a modern yet classic, detached house built of handmade bricks and designed to sit sympathetically with the neighbouring village houses. Constructed circa 2010, it enjoys the room proportions, tall sash windows, open fireplace and wonderful walled garden of a property from an earlier era, and yet it comes with all the benefits associated with luxurious, modern living. This includes ground source heating and a functional room layout. The south facing, landscaped garden is enclosed by high, mellow brick walls and can be enjoyed from every corner with flagged terraces and seating areas.
