The principal house has been designed and equipped with the good life in mind using state-of-the-art technology backed up by fibre to the premises bringing superfast broadband speeds.
The contemporary kitchen includes a Rangemaster, central island with wine fridge, granite worktops and a porcelain-tiled floor; alongside is a fully fitted utility room. Open plan from the kitchen, the garden room is a recent extension to the house; it has a contemporary 14 kilowatt cylindrical-shaped wood burning stove, huge lantern window and full-width bifold doors that open west to the non-slip porcelain-tiled terrace. The 23ft sitting room has a wood burning stove, and bay windows in both the sitting room and dining room overlook the front garden.
The three contemporary bathrooms are all designed with high quality fixtures and fittings, and the four bedrooms have bespoke wardrobes supplied and fitted by Hammonds. The principal bedroom suite has an electric multi-media projector screen, is west facing and enjoys far-reaching countryside views.
Wrought iron gates and a further pair of timber gates secure the property. Both gates are automated with remote functioning as are the two restored Edwardian street lamp posts. The drive, which is constructed of stone setts, provides ample parking and gives access to the garaging.
The front garden is well screened from the quiet village lane behind a mature hedge. At the rear, the garden faces west and enjoys elevated views over the paddock across green pastures that gently descend to the river. A pergola on the terrace provides structure and climbing perennials alongside a colourful herbaceous border run the length of the garden, with a feature street lamp providing outdoor lighting. Clipped box hedging and elegant wrought iron railings frame the lawn, and a five bar gate gives access to the paddock. A further terrace on the southern boundary enjoys an elevated position and is connected by French doors to the rear garage block where a well-equipped kitchen has been fitted (raising potential further use of the building). Here also is an outside tap.
The paddock is enclosed and extends to approximately one third of an acre with a stable block on the southern corner.
