Believed to date back at least 350 years, Vigrove House is an attractive former farmhouse, which combines all modern day amenities with period character features.

The house is entered through an open fronted log store porch into the main reception hall, which has attractive oak wall panelling and a fitted oak bookcase. Off the hall is a ground floor cloaks/WC with wash hand basin.

The splendid drawing room and magnificent dining room are separated by a central stone built fireplace with oak beams above and which houses a double fronted multi fuel stove. Both rooms have exposed ceiling beams and a feature of the drawing room is an original stone wall. Both have oak floors and from the drawing room French doors lead out into the garden. There is also access from the dining room into the snug/TV room, which has a built-in desk and shelves.

A second sitting room is at the other end of the house and has a stone fireplace housing another multi fuel stove. There is also a useful store cupboard and a large window. Glazed double doors lead into a useful conservatory, with fitted window blinds and a glass roof.

The farmhouse style kitchen has ample base and wall units and a Belfast sink. It has a solid fuel Rayburn, as well as an electric oven and hob with an extractor hood above. There is a built-in China cupboard and exposed ceiling beams. There are windows to two elevations, with attractive shutters.

Off the kitchen is the utility room, which has a Belfast sink, fitted cupboard and plumbing and space for an automatic washing machine and tumble drier. There is a stable door to outside. Accessed off the hall is a very useful pantry with a range of fitted floor to ceiling cupboards and with room for fridges and freezers.

An oak staircase leads to the first floor, on to a split level landing. The fabulous master bedroom has exposed beams and an exposed truss, three windows allowing in plenty of natural sunlight, fitted shelves and access into the en-suite with a white suite of bath, wash basin, bidet, WC and a Velux skylight and window. There are five further bedrooms, the smaller one having a Velux skylight and leading onto a small landing, which in turn leads into a shower room, with shower, WC and wash basin. On the first floor there is also an ironing room within which is the airing cupboard and from which a second staircase leads down into the kitchen.

The house stands in attractive landscaped gardens. There is an extensive lawn to the front of the house, with numerous flower borders containing a wide variety of colourful plants, shrubs, bushes and ornamental trees. In one corner is a raised decking area, which is bordered by climbing Clematis and Rose plants and is ideal for the BBQ and al fresco eating.

There are various strategically placed sitting out areas to take full advantage of the sunshine throughout the day and one includes a very attractive raised flagstone patio. Within the formal gardens is a children's play den, a playhouse and children's area and various sheds.

From the road, vehicular entrance gates lead onto a drive suitable for several vehicles and within which is a detached stone built garage with electric lights and points and a workshop area. There is storage in the garage loft area and there is also an adjoining store room.

A second vehicular entrance gate opens onto a driveway, which leads up to a level paddock/orchard. Leading to the paddock is an attractive archway covered in productive grapevines. A wide gate then gives access into the paddock. In one corner is a very productive vegetable section, with four raised beds and a greenhouse. There is also a detached stable and tack room.
