SUBSTANTIAL COUNTRY RESIDENCE WITH ANNEXE - noir by david cliff - This 6 bedroom character home has been extensively upgraded by the current owners. It comprises the original farm cottage to the Manor together with the barn which were converted together into this fine detached dwelling in the early 1950`s. In more recent years there have been various extensions and the main house was reroofed circa 12 years ago. The heart of the home is the open plan kitchen/dining/family room which is triple aspect with a large oak topped island, integrated appliances and granite work tops which continue into the utility room. There is also a walk-in pantry with a marble cold slab. The main sitting room has high ceilings with oak beams and fireplace with log burner. Beyond the sitting room is another good sized reception room currently used as a study/snug.
The annexe can be used as part of the main house or as a separate living space. It comprises a bedroom (making six in all), a sitting room, kitchen, shower room and hall, and has its own front door and interconnecting door to the main house.
To the first floor the master bedroom has a dressing area and en suite. The guest bedroom also has an en suite and there are 3 further first floor bedrooms (two large doubles and a single), along with the family bathroom.
The gardens are a fine feature of this home and are approached via solar electric gates. There is parking for a good range of vehicles and decent sized garage as well as various outbuildings including a substantial garden room which has been used as an entertaining area and an art studio. This also has a sink with running water and excellent lighting and would make an ideal home office. The gardens wrap round the house and are well maintained with a mixture of lawns, shrub and perennial borders, raised vegetable beds and wild flower patches. It has been managed organically for many years and is a haven for wild birds and butterflies. It has a large fish and wildlife pond in the front with decked area. The back patio is covered by a glass awning and makes a fantastic entertaining space.
