The first floor has a large landing area with the principal bedroom having an en suite and bay window to the east, overlooking the gardens.

The property is set back and enjoys grounds of around three-quarters of an acre (sts), beautifully kept and maintained and ensuring a good deal of privacy by way of a large selection of mature trees. The property is approached from the lane behind the church, onto an extensive driveway area via a 5-bar gate, with a large proportion of the gardens to the front of the house, enjoying a southerly orientation with some well-stocked flower beds and terrace, as well as a traditional timber-framed barn providing further scope and potential at the far south-easterly corner of the plot. Wonderful views are enjoyed to the front towards the magnificent village church.

The property is situated along a quiet lane in arguably one of the best spots within the village and located within a "stone's throw" of the thriving village centre.
