A captivating attached thatched house renovated to an exacting specification with a fabulous contemporary interior designed to enhance its unique character & period charm.

THE PROPERTY is Grade II listed being of Architectural and Historic Interest and accordingly its original features have been retained and enhanced. Its origins are 16th century and built as a pair of cottages and attached to a separate dwelling at one end. It has later additions of brick, stone and flint elevations beneath thatched roofs and distinctive leaden light windows.

The current owners have created a light modern atmosphere with a stylish choice of muted colour scheme and the addition of brushed white oak flooring through the ground floor. Numerous period features include exposed ceiling timbers, window seats and inglenook fireplaces.

The GARDEN ROOM was added in the mid 1980’s at the back of the house; a superb addition and the perfect vantage point from which to observe the wildlife – with a special mention for the numerous songbirds which are regular visitors. The meandering stream continues along the far boundary (there is no history of the stream flooding the garden or property) there is an unspoilt rural landscape view across the abutting countryside.

The grounds are a very special part of the property, set back from the village road with a high evergreen hedge forming the boundary. The front garden is laid to lawn with an old stone path at the front of the house.

A timber screen and side gates lead around to the stunning rear gardens; beautifully landscaped it is well stocked with numerous herbaceous shrubs and flowers in addition to a lovely old and gnarled apple tree takes centre stage. A flag stone sun terrace stretches the length of the house with barbeque and sitting areas making it the perfect spot to enjoy al fresco dining and summer entertaining.

The grounds follow the stream and open out to sweeping lawns bisected by flowering shrubs and specimen trees. SWIMMING POOL with a paved surround and sheltered by wattle fencing. High beech hedging forms ‘rooms’ within the garden – a productive KITCHEN GARDEN has fruit cages and raised beds supplying year round home grown produce. Much of the garden is under planted with a colourful array of spring bulbs.
