A quiet lane leads to a small hamlet of 5 houses, of which this property is the most impressive. A walled garden with manicured lawns and shrubbery is concealed behind an imposing stone gateway.

The main house and two large barns enclose the other three sides of the formal garden. More expansive lawns are to the rear of the house and behind further barns.

MAIN HOUSE

Consistent with the original layout of the building, the ENTRANCE HALL (33m2) on the ground floor leads to 4 ground floor DOUBLE BEDROOMS (14m2, 17m2, 15m2, 15m2). The high ceilings are dominated by large beams. The radiators in each room are a small concession to modern life. Each bedroom has a recess with a sink, which could be converted to a shower.

At the far end of the house is a large room (50m2), currently used as an artists studio, with an imposing fireplace. Behind this is the BOILER ROOM (20m2), housing the oil fired boiler.

Upstairs we find the impressive DINING ROOM (44m2) with a large fireplace, wooden floor and exposed beams and stone window surrounds.

The corridor then leads to the KITCHEN (19m2) with it's bespoke wooden kitchen units. Next is the BATHROOM (10m2), again with exposed beams and then steps lead down the STUDY (28m2). This room is dominated by a huge brick fireplace and 3.6m high ceiling. A door then leads through to the SALON (51m2). This is a very well proportioned room with similarly high ceilings and another notable fireplace, this time in limestone.

To the rear of the main house is a courtyard, mainly laid to lawn. There is a sheltered eating area and the gite

GITE

The gite is a similar style to the main house, albeit on a much smaller scale. The LIVING ROOM (19m2) is focused around a modern wood burner. The galley KITCHEN (3m2) is tucked under the stairs and whilst small, is very serviceable.

Steps lead up to a mezzanine floor with the SHOWER ROOM (3m2) with toilet and the BEDROOM (9m2).

Adjoining the main building is an OUTBUILDING with several small rooms which would have been for animals. This overlooks the large gardens, mostly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs.

At the other end other end of the house there are 2 further BARNS, one of overlooks a neighbouring lake and would be very well suited for conversion to additional living space.

A small lane loops through the hamlet and the final two BARNS are just across the land from the house. They are setback slightly from the lane and behind them is a garden (3000m2 or 3/4 acre).

All the buildings are in excellent condition. The barns have had new roofs.

This is genuinely a rare find, a period building that has been renovated throughout in a consistent and considerate way. A little piece of history!
