Orchard House is a wonderful Grade II Listed detached, thatched property believed to date back to the 16th Century, with later 18th and mid-20th Century additions with period features throughout.
Of particular note is the heavily timbered sitting room with a magnificent red brick fire place with bressumer beam over, with gas effect fire inserted.
Also of note is the recently fitted kitchen with a wide range of wall and base units under a Corian work top and incorporating a 1½ bowl corner sink, 4 ring electric induction hob with extractor hood over and an eye level double oven. The kitchen also benefits from a floor with electric under floor heating and wonderful views over the rear garden. The kitchen gives access to the utility room with a further door to the garden.
The ground floor also comprises dining room, en-suite ground floor bedroom, study / fourth bedroom, WC and conservatory with French doors opening onto the rear terrace.
The first floor comprises a good sized landing and two further bedrooms with views over the front and rear gardens and a shower room.
Orchard House is approached via a shingle drive, the first part of which is flanked by mature flower beds, which leads to a large gravel parking area for several cars. From the large parking area access is given to the detached barn currently used as a double garage and the workshop/store.
The grounds are predominantly laid to lawn with well stocked flower beds and a variety of mature shrubs and trees. To the rear of the property there is a natural pond, a terraced area ideal for al fresco dining and barbeques and a pergola leading to a pleasant seating area. On the eastern side of the property there is a large expanse of lawn boarded by tall mature trees.
