Extended in the 1970's, the house boasts a large entrance hall/lobby room with floor to ceiling windows that offer a first glimpse of the impressive gardens. From here we can access the spacious sitting room which enjoys large windows on all sides bar the internal wall, where an impressive stone fireplace with open fire takes centre stage. Double glass doors lead out to the garden and the first of several patio areas and views of Ubley Woods can be seen from all sides. Next to the sitting room is the formal dining room, accessed through double doors from the hall and also via the kitchen . The country-style kitchen which is situated in the oldest part of the house, has a sizable sit-to island to the centre and is surrounded by a range of fitted units and a large walk-in pantry cupboard. Beyond the kitchen is a very large utility/boot room with further storage and worktop space and an additional door out to the front of the house.
Up on the first floor there are four generously sized bedrooms, including the master bedroom with fully fitted wardrobes and ensuite bathroom. The family bathroom is generously sized and sits next to fourth bedroom, both of which are in the older, stone built part of the house which boasts a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and a charming mezzanine level.
The gardens are notable, being made up of mature shrubs and trees, including a beautiful walnut tree, and run predominantly to the rear, and surrounded by lush lawn that wraps around two sides of the property. There are several seating areas and a significant vegetable patch to enjoy, all of which have been beautifully maintained by the current owners including the flower beds to the front and side of the property.
A large double garage and driveway provides ample parking for multiple vehicles and offers a significant opportunity to extend this property or to add a larger annex, subject to planning consent. The entire house is spacious and light and benefits from gas central heating and a relatively new boiler. A highly flexible layout means that it is ideal for families and multigenerational living.
