A deceptively spacious double roundel Oast house providing six double bedrooms with two benefitting from en-suites. Set in an idyllic rural hamlet on a half acre plot which includes formal gardens and adjoining rear paddock. The rear paddock provides access to a detached timber outbuilding which offers the use as another garage or workshop subject to individual needs. There is also a brick built detached garage with ample off road parking on the driveway. The property has a wealth of character and charm throughout including exposed timbers and beams with the sitting room providing a central inglenook fireplace with a wood burner inset. The Oast allows a new owner to add their own stamp and an early viewing is strongly recommended to appreciate exactly what is on offer.

The Property: The front door opens into a spacious entrance hall with a door to an inner hallway. The inner hall has doors to the cloakroom, kitchen diner and sitting room with stairs to the first floor landing. The sitting room is within a roundel with a rear aspect and double doors opening into the garden. There is a central inglenook fireplace to one side with a wood burner inset. The kitchen diner is set within the second roundel and again enjoys a rear aspect. It has a walk-in pantry cupboard with a rear entrance lobby providing a useful boot room with a door to the garden. There is a range of wall, base and drawer units with a one and a half bowl stainless steel sink set into the worktop. Integrated appliances include a four ring electric hob with an extractor fan above and a chest height double oven beside. There is space and plumbing for white goods and a free standing fridge/freezer.
On the first floor landing are doors to four double bedrooms and a bathroom with a spiral staircase to the second floor. The master bedroom has a double aspect and is set within one roundel benefitting from a walk in wardrobe and en-suite shower room. Two of the bedrooms are divided into the other roundel and provide a versatile layout as one bedroom could potentially be used as a study or amalgamated into one larger bedroom subject to individual needs. The other bedroom is set within the barn and has a front aspect with a vaulted ceiling. The bathroom has a white suite comprising low level wc, panelled bath with separate shower attachment above and splash screen with a wash hand basin set into a vanity unit.
On the second floor are two further double bedrooms each with velux windows within the roundel tops. One bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room and has steps up to a mezzanine floor providing useful storage space or teenagers snug.
Gardens & Grounds: To the front of the property is a gravelled drive providing ample off road parking for multiple vehicles. There is also a shared private track continuing to the side where the detached brick built garage is located. The track continues round to the rear boundary of the property with a five bar gate providing access into the rear paddock. The paddock has a detached timber outbuilding offering use as a further garage or workshop subject to individual needs. There is a greenhouse with vegetable garden and a scattering of maturing trees. A hedge line divides the paddock to the rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn with three garden sheds and a patio entertaining area close to the back of the Oast. The rear garden and small paddock are a real feature of the property enjoying a sunny open aspect backing onto open countryside.
