Orchard House is a stunning period property with origins dating back to the 1700's offering substantial accommodation measuring over 3500 square feet. The property offers a complimentary blend of both character features and contemporary aspects which make this a wonderful family home with a welcoming ambience. Set within approximately 4.5 acres(TBV) of grounds made up of formal gardens and paddocks offering outstanding equestrian facilities rarely found within a village location. STEP INSIDE
This well-appointed country residence has four double bedrooms, three bathrooms, a sitting room with study area, a formal dining room and a recently upgraded, contemporary kitchen/breakfast room with a stunning vaulted and beamed ceiling which together make up the principal part of the property. The West wing of Orchard House is made up of two further reception rooms, a shower room and a mezzanine bedroom area all of which would make an ideal integral annex, but equally, as is the case currently, could be used as a fifth bedroom. The property also boasts a large balcony to the rear which can be accessed by two of the main bedrooms and provides glorious, uninterrupted views over the gardens and grounds. STEP OUTSIDE
