It benefits from solar panels and a two bedroom holiday cottage, which provide further income.

The property’s entrance porch leads straight into the garden room, with French doors and full length windows overlooking the rear patio and gardens.

The kitchen/family/dining room is the property’s focal point, with an inglenook fireplace housing an electric Aga, and oak hardwood floor.

The bespoke kitchen by John Lewis is fitted with a range of Shaker style cupboards and drawers with matching wall cupboards, a walk-in pantry and a double butler sink, with a Miele eye level double oven, hob and cooker hood.

Double French doors lead to the rear garden, and there is access to the garden room.

The study has been created from the former main entrance hall. To the rear it has been lined, but the front door is still in place and it could be converted back into a hall.

The sitting room houses another inglenook fireplace with bressumer beam and multi-fuel stove.

It leads to the conservatory, which takes advantage of the garden and has double doors leading to the patio.

Downstairs there is also a utility room, which leads to a shower room and separate WC.

On the first floor the landing leads to the bedrooms and the family bathroom, with a P-shaped bath with shower over.

Bedroom four is on the second floor, reached via steps from the landing, and has a vaulted ceiling.

The house is approached through electric gates by a peashingle drive, which leads to a large parking area.

There is a triple garage with a loft over, a fully licensed property currently let on a holiday basis.

The loft’s accommodation comprises a lounge/kitchenette with outside decking area, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The organic gardens feature a small orchard, lawns, flower gardens and an elevated terrace. Various raised decking areas provide vantage points over the garden and countryside beyond.

There is a kitchen garden with greenhouse, polytunnel and potting shed.

Other features include a hot tub with its own covered enclosure, a range of sheds and a children’s playshed.
