DESCRIPTION

The property has many period features including exposed beams, deep window sills, original doors and inglenook fireplaces. The house also benefits from double glazing.

ACCOMMODATION

The spacious accommodation offers a tiled entrance hall, leading to a dual-aspect kitchen/breakfast room which includes an extensive and useful range of units. The kitchen also boasts an adjoining pantry, an oil-fired Stanley cooker and a Belfast sink. The sitting room has a large feature stone fireplace with the original bread oven, an inset woodburner and an oak lintel. The downstairs accommodation is completed by a utility room, WC and a study, along with a second kitchen/breakfast room,

drawing room and bathroom. This part of the property could be easily separated to create a self-contained annexe with separate staircase to bedroom 5.

Upstairs, the triple-aspect master bedroom with exposed beams provides fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

OUTSIDE

At the rear of the property there is a decked area and a hot tub. The lawned gardens lead from the private gravel

driveway to the edge of the Little Dart River, where a timber pedestrian bridge leads to a well-planted orchard. Further bridges lead to the garden area which fronts the river and is planted with a number of mature shrubs and trees. A large enclosed pond with an island adjoins the gardens and has been sympathetically planted with wild flowers.

There is also a timber stable block comprising two loose boxes and a tack room which benefits from mains water and power, with a concrete yard area to the front. There is also an open-fronted hay store and barn which gives access to the paddock.
