Orchard House is set back from the road, screened by hedging, and standing proudly behind beautifully landscaped gardens.
An oak post entrance porch is a later addition to the property, very much resembling the style of the Lynch Gate at the nearby Church of St. Peter, and gives access to a central entrance hall which stretches to the rear of the property and has stairs rising to the first floor. From here access can be gained to the rear garden and a useful ground floor shower room. The hallway also has doors leading to the two main reception rooms both of which offer a wealth of period features and have been restored cleverly utilising a number of natural materials to compliment the original fabric of the building. The triple aspect sitting room is noted for its generous proportions and offers a large inglenook fireplace with inset wood burning stove. The dining room, located on the opposite side of the hallway, links well with a large kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a good range of units finished with solid oak and granite work surfaces. From here there is access to the rear garden and a further door leads through to a utility room and study.
On the first floor the landing splits to give access to the staircase rising to the second floor and another section that widens to provide a lovely area perfect for a reading nook or secondary study area. The master bedroom suite is located over the sitting room, providing a generous footprint which easily accommodates the bedroom area, a well appointed dressing room and a wonderful en-suite bathroom with freestanding copper bath. Two further bedrooms are located on the first floor both having the use of a well fitted bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle.
On the second floor there are two bedrooms and bathroom, cleverly capturing borrowed light via well positioned windows. The rooms on this floor are full of character having an abundance of exposed timber, as you would expect from rooms situated in the eaves.
Outside, to the rear, the property is set in a plot of approximately 1.1 Acres (sts). The plot has been masterfully designed and offers a mix of formal lawned gardens interspersed by mature trees, a grass tennis court, a hidden walled garden packed full of exotic plants and offering a secret seating area, two large barns and an extensive gravel driveway leading to a double bay cart lodge. Finally a stunning enclosed courtyard adjoins the rear of the property with feature glass covered well and a stylish garden room, converted by the current owners, with bi-folding doors which provides a fantastic place to sit and enjoy your surroundings. The garden room has also been fitted with a mini kitchen to further enhance the enjoyment of it.
Part of the driveway to Orchard House is shared with a neighbouring property.
There is an overage agreement on the bottom segment of the rear garden.
