Sunnyside is an elegant home nestled down a quiet country lane occupying an idyllic position providing exceptional accommodation on one floor, standing in mature gardens and paddocks of approximately 1.7 acres, subject to planning there is scope to extend to create a third bedroom.
Around 10 years of age, the property has been thoughtfully constructed with separate living and bedroom accommodation along with a detached office and workshop, formerly used as stables. There is also an additional separate stable with adjacent tack room/storeroom and loft.
The property is entered from the front into the entrance porch which leads into the open plan kitchen/dining room along with the cloakroom. Well equipped, the kitchen offers a range of grey storage units that provide integrated appliances that sit under light work surfaces. The room is light and airy with views to the front and French doors open on to the rear garden terrace along with another set of doors opening into the conservatory. The utility room provides a further range of storage units that allow space and plumbing for utility appliances and there is access to the outside of the property. The sitting room is a generous size with view and access over the rear garden and an inset log burner with detailed surround.
Bedroom two is positioned to the front of the property with a bathroom ensuite with shower over bathtub, WC and wash hand basin. Bedroom one is a wonderful room, well-proportioned with a fantastic high vaulted ceiling, velux windows and doors leading on to the garden complete with a generous ensuite with walk in shower, WC and wash hand basin.

A sweeping driveway guides you to the property and provides ample parking leading to open cart lodge with storage room to the rear where the ground source heat pump is stored.
The rear garden enjoys a partly open aspect onto the paddocks and stunning views of the countryside beyond. The garden commences with a terrace, ideal for alfresco dining, and the remainder of the garden is predominately laid to lawn surrounded by well-stocked flower beds and borders, providing an abundance of colour and scents throughout the seasons. Formerly used as stables, a detached outbuilding is currently arranged as an office with large workshop attached with double doors. To the front of the property is a small stable yard, providing potential for the office to be utilised as stabling once again. Access from the country lane and garden leads into the paddocks to the rear, laid to lawn enclosed by mature hedge rows and post and railings. We understand that opposite Sunnyside there is now an additional parcel of land for sale. This parcel of land has a large stable with storeroom to the rear, and has easy access to the paddocks. This additional parcel of land is ideal for winter turnout.
We understand there is a right of access to the neighbouring property between the paddocks and a footpath crosses diagonally to the adjacent paddock from the road. Where?
