Stone House is a charming and spacious detached farmhouse which has retained a wealth of period features, whilst standing in an enviable position within its delightful mature gardens. On entering the property through a stable door, the entrance hall leads to the main living room off to the left. This delightful room retains a magnificent brick ingle nook fireplace with gas burning stove, and has a wealth of exposed timbers to the walls and ceiling. Located off the living room is the inner hallway with the sitting room, guest cloakroom and cellars. Following on from the entrance hall is the charming farmhouse kitchen, again with many exposed beams to the walls and ceiling. The kitchen with views of the courtyard garden, offers fitted cabinetry with integrated appliances including double electric oven, and electric hob. Leading on, the spacious utility room has cabinets with space and plumbing for appliances.
The inner hall gives access to the staircase which rises to the first floor landing area. Doors lead off to the three double bedrooms all having plenty of character with exposed timbers to the walls and ceilings. The family bathroom offers a fitted suite along with a separate bath and shower enclosure. An additional staircase rises to the second floor leading to a double bedroom and shower room. A larger than average bedroom which is currently used as a hobby room, leads to another charming bedroom boasting plenty of character.
Grounds and gardens
The property is approached through a driveway which leads to the main house and court yard garden. The attached barn and additional outbuilding can both be located to the side aspect, whilst the remains of a former barn creates a very interesting feature to the garden. A stone archway leads to a paved path with most of the rear garden laid mainly to lawn. An array of fruit trees adorn the far corner of the garden, whilst delicate fruit such as raspberries, gooseberries and redcurrants grow against the remains of the old barn. A range of stone walling and evergreen hedging provides the boundary. Following on from the courtyard garden, a timber gate leads to the front garden planted with mature shrubs and laid mainly to lawn.
