Bedrooms: 5
The Cider Barn is a characterful home, believed to have been built in the 1880s as a cider press and later converted to a family home in the 1990s. The property is modernised throughout and yet managed to retain a good deal of character, with exposed ceiling trusses, beams and vaulted ceilings. The reception room also features part of the old press mechanism, preserved as a feature. The house is more than 3500 sq ft across two floors, with exceptionally generous proportions on both floors further enhanced by the very high ceilings and large windows which flood the spaces with natural light. Beginning on the ground floor, the accommodation comprises an entrance hall which leads to the family accommodation: an expansive kitchen open plan to a sitting and dining room which is approximately 66ft long and decorated in a traditional country style. This is a wonderful room for entertaining, with the kitchen flowing seamlessly into a dining area and a sitting space at the opposite end. Also on the ground floor there is a bedroom/study, utility room and cloakroom with w.c. A useful cellar space has its own entrance and is ideal for storage. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a sitting room, which has a separate staircase down to an additional bedroom and en-suite shower room on the ground floor; this has its own private entrance and access to the garden, making it an ideal principal suite or for older children.

The property is set within a good-size plot, with a very spacious driveway to the front having ample off-street parking for a number of vehicles. There is also the added benefit of a detached tandem garage with barn-style doors which is situated just behind the house. Most of the outside space is situated to the rear and the side, where there is a fabulous mature garden laid to lawn but featuring a large pond, a moat and a paddock which borders open farmland, over which there are lovely views. There would be excellent potential for a smallholding.
