Archers House is an individually designed, detached village house. Set in a slightly elevated location, it has the most wonderful, panoramic outlook across the village to the countryside beyond. To capture this view, the house has been carefully and successfully arranged to ensure that the main accommodation enjoys the setting and the drawing room, in particular, is a fabulous living and entertaining space.
The house is gloriously light, with wide picture windows throughout, ensuring that the views are maximised and natural light fills the rooms. The layout is extremely flexible, with plenty of rooms that can be utilised as needed, either bedrooms or reception space. Beautifully decorated, the property has a warm, elegant feel, both spacious and welcoming.
From the Entrance Hall there are three double bedrooms, two with excellent fitted storage and there is a very well fitted family bathroom. The lower ground floor is currently arranged with a large Guest Suite including a fully fitted en-suite shower room. On this level is also the garage/utility, with power and plumbing connected and this space offers huge potential to create a self contained annexe with independent access.
On the first floor the Drawing Room features two huge windows framing the panoramic views. A lovely room, of very good size, with a bespoke, curved oak bookcase forming an attractive feature, there is also the potential to re-instate an open fireplace if required. French doors open to a wrap around balcony, which continues right around the house to the kitchen.
The Dining Area forms a sociable entertaining space, open plan to the well fitted Kitchen which is fully equipped with a Rangemaster range cooker and Siemens integral dishwasher.
On the second floor the Master Suite is fantastic, a large bedroom with fitted storage and luxury en suite shower room, it also enjoys the lovely setting, with fine, far flung views.
The entrance drive offers plenty of private parking, shared from the lane, before separating between Archers House and its neighbour. There is also a large garage with up and over door.
The Gardens are mature and very well maintained. To the front, carefully clipped Beech hedging on the boundary, encloses an area of orchard with apple and cherry trees, approached via steps flanked by yew trees, leading down through a well stocked shrubbery that provides colour and interest throughout the seasons.
The wrap around balcony forms a lovely place to sit and enjoy the view and at the rear, steps lead down to a wonderful sun-trap terrace, south facing and bounded by carefully terraced beds. An ornamental fish pond provides a charming feature and steps lead up the rear boundary which adjoins open farmlands.
An archway in the Beech hedging opens to a further generous area of land, currently leased from the church on an agreed licence of £100 per annum. Ideal for using as a kitchen garden, or extra play space if needed.
