The Pippins is a charming t shaped, white rendered period property with slate roof, parts dating back to approx. 1750's. It has been tastefully renovated and extended in 2012 to create ample accommodation for all the family, without impacting on the goodsized garden with its countryside views.
The front door opens into a boot room with tiled floor, leading into the oldest part of the house, with its abundance of character, dating back to 1750's. A spacious room divided by a chimney creating two separate rooms; a nice, cozy snug/sitting room and formal dining room. The snug has a multi fuel burner and is ideal for a teenager den/cinema room. The dining room is a light and airy room with feature chimney breast and stairs to the first floor.
Past the dining room we enter the utility. Well equipped with a selection of solid wooden cupboards, larder unit, solid wood worktop and Belfast sink.

A stable door leads out to the garden.
The main sitting room, built in 2012, is again a very light and airy room, of a good-size, with multi fuel burner and full wall of bi-fold doors leading to the patio, making for an ideal entertaining space for those summer BBQ's. Due to it's close proximity to the kitchen it also makes for an ideal playroom for younger children.

A special feature of this home is the two separate staircases which allows the adjoining bedrooms to be closed off and accessed from one side or opened to allow access through from one side of the house to the other. This offers flexibilty of living and if needed, privacy for those growing teenagers.
Grounds and gardens
The house and parking are accessed via a wooden 5 bar gate, offering much privacy and allowing the main part of the house to be set back nicely from the road. There is parking for approximately 3 cars. Although there is currently no garage in place, there is some historic footings laid beneath a beautiful flower bed, thus giving you some flexibiltiy should you wish to build a garage. The main family garden is a particular feature of the property and is laid mainly to lawn with well-established shrubs, herbaceous perennials and fruit trees such as cherry, plumb, apple and pear. There is a patio that runs the length of the property which is ideal for barbecues and outdoor entertaining and a stunning flower garden section. An impressive weeping birch and two sheds ideal for storing garden tools. Behind the garden lies council farmland, a site of a medievil manor house, giving you unrestricted views of the countryside.
