The gardens offer extensive scope and will appeal to keen gardeners and nature lovers alike.

The characterful accommodation is arranged over two floors and briefly comprises; Rear part glazed entrance door opens into the traditional styled utility/boot room with downstairs WC.

The cosy sitting room is a delightful dual aspect space of pleasing proportions. Views are enjoyed over the gardens. Bedroom two is found on the ground floor and is a comfortable double bedroom with views over the gardens. The beautiful stripped timber staircase leads to a first floor landing area with a store cupboard and doors to the principal bedroom and bathroom. The principal bedroom is a substantial dual aspect double bedroom with stripped timber floor, central fireplace and superb countryside views. The principal bathroom is beautifully fitted in a sympathetic and traditional style with a slipper bath, WC, wash basin and separate shower enclosure.

The property is approached through a timber gate into the front rose garden. The rear garden is a generous size and very much a blank canvas at present being predominantly laid to lawn – an ideal opportunity for a keen gardener to create an outstanding country garden.

Guide Price: An indication of the seller’s current minimum price at auction. The guide price of range or guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

Reserve Price: The seller’s minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
