Property Description

The property is approached via a wide gravelled driveway, edged by beautiful cottage-style flower beds, and bounded by low brick walls. Through the wooden gates a brick courtyard lies to the front of the property. A pergola adorned with grape vines provides a covered seating space, for evening drinks or morning coffee. This is a natural suntrap where fruit grows in abundance on the espalier trees against the walls of the house.

Double doors set into double height picture windows, open into the family room, which includes an attractive niche, shelved with glass. A further set of glass doors open on the rear courtyard. The family room offers a clean and light space in which to work, play or just relax.

The bespoke kitchen with painted wooden units and an inset range with tiled back drop gives this farmhouse kitchen a warm feeling of cosy dinners and baking. There is an extensive range of cupboards and space for a fridge-freezer and dishwasher. Open shelving with spice drawers enhances this wonderful space. The kitchen will easily accommodate a family-sized table and six chairs, and there is centre island to make pastry and decorate those cupcakes.

Double casement doors open from the kitchen directly into a garden, containing gravelled paths that meander between beds of flowering shrubs and trees. Adjacent to the kitchen, there is a useful utility room, with space for a washing machine and tumble dryer, a double stainless steel sink unit, further storage cupboards, work-tops and open shelving to accommodate home-made produce. A quarry tiled floor and glass door open to the rear courtyard. The rear door of the property is set in a brick porch, which contains useful shelving to serve as a boot room. This leads through an arch to the boiler room. Both areas also benefit from quarry tiled floors.

The inner hallway provides access to the downstairs cloakroom, the study/office and two further delightful reception rooms. The formal dining room has a beamed ceiling and a useful walk-in cupboard. The wonderful light and airy drawing room has a double-height ceiling, large windows over the garden and double glass doors which open on to the courtyard. There is an inset wood burning stove and stairs leading to a mezzanine level, providing a quiet library space or music room.

Upstairs, the galleried landing above the family room offers beautiful views of the garden and surrounding landscape. The spacious master bedroom has a large en suite shower room. There are four further bedrooms including three doubles, one of which has a walk-in wardrobe and there is a large family bathroom. Bedroom five, a double room with an en suite shower room, has an additional door leading directly to the private mezzanine area and stairs to the drawing room, thus enabling it to be used as a separate suite of rooms for guests or family members, if required.


The gardens are a wildlife haven with grassy pathways, leading through wildflowers and wooded areas to a bridge over a natural stream. The focal point is the lake known as Ledwyche Pool which was originally a mill pond. This is home to an incredible variety of wildlife, including ducks, moorhens, frogs and dragonflies. There is a productive vegetable garden with raised beds, fruit cages, log stores and shed. Apples and pear trees form a small but productive orchard.

The property provides flexible accommodation and gardens, which must be viewed to appreciate the quality of lifestyle on offer.
