A wonderful period house with annexe set in glorious grounds of approximately 2 acres with outstanding views across the open countryside beyond

The Old Fleece & Feathers
The Old Fleece & Feathers was originally built
in the 17th century and has recently undergone
modernisation to create this stunning light, wellproportioned family home which is full of character and ideal for modern family life, with the added benefit of a self-contained annexe. Of particular note is the wonderful kitchen/breakfast room with double French doors leading to the terrace and the beautiful garden beyond. Leading directly off the kitchen is an impressive dining room which has the original beams and opens onto the sitting room which has a wood burning stove. There is also a galleried reception hall, study, family room and recently re-fitted utility.
Upstairs the master bedroom has a new en-suite
and dressing area with fitted wardrobes. There
are three further bedrooms, one with an en-suite
shower room and the remaining two bedrooms are served by a newly appointed family bathroom.
To the side of the main house there is a large separate barn/garage with an annexe which has a bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. There is also a separate timber clad outbuilding with clay tiled roof which has undergone significant refurbishment to create a stunning office with bespoke fitted furniture, new heating and a separate fibre connection. There is scope to convert the room above into more living
accommodation subject to planning.
Outside, The Old Fleece & Feathers is approached by wooden electric gates over a gravel driveway, with parking for several cars. The garden and grounds are private and level and mostly laid to lawn bordered with well-established flower and shrub beds and lead directly onto the paddock beyond which also incorporates a vegetable garden.
