excellent access for commuting and also benefits from a primary school, church, village hall and a pub.

There is a wealth of period character throughout including open fireplaces, panelled walls, sash windows and former servant’s bells in the kitchen. It spans across three floors and has a total of six bedrooms. The ground floor briefly comprises of four reception rooms, a large kitchen diner, utility room and pantry. On the first floor are three of the bedrooms including the master bedroom which has a fabulous ensuite and enjoys views across the village green. There is also a family bathroom. The second floor has three further bedrooms, a dressing room and a bathroom.
The annexe to the side of the property has a useful separate access. The one bedroom accommodation provides flexible additional accommodation for guests, relatives or even as a holiday let.
Large gardens to the rear have been beautifully landscaped and are enclosed by a high brick wall making it very private and secluded. The property also benefits from a range of outbuildings, double garage and ample off road parking. Uniquely, the property does also own the village green to the front together with a further area to the side.
The East House currently has planning permission for a single storey extension to the rear leading from the kitchen as well as demolition of the garage block and construction of new garages and a store. Application number 15/00059/FUL. However please note that the position of the new garaging is on the development site for sale in Lot 2, so cannot be built unless both lots are purchased together.
The whole property is being offered for sale as two separate lots. Part of the garden to the side of The East House along with the Coach House benefits from planning permission for two dwellings and conversion of the Coach House. This has a separate access and the boundaries have clearly been marked. Please request further information if interested in this separate lot.
