A commanding period house sitting in beautiful grounds of 1.08 acre close to the village centre. The gardens have regularly been opened to the public with Church Fetes taking place as well as general social gatherings.


A detached stone built village house dating back centuries with some later additions, being sold for the first time in over sixty years. This impressive family home was once a pub known as the 'The Tap' and more recently was the village doctor's surgery, it now offers nearly 3,500 sq.ft (325 sq.m) of living space with the addition of a garage & car port, located within minutes walk of the village centre and overlooking the south facing gardens. The house offers grand reception rooms with tall ceilings, a cellar that has proved ideal for wine, a broad entrance hall behind a solid wood front door, potential to create an annexe within the old surgery, split level first floor with a master suite and five further bedrooms. There is an Aga in the kitchen, many of the windows are double glazed, the electrics have been improved and the boiler replaced a year ago.

The gardens are a stunning feature with a breathtaking array of plants and year round colour, they have even been regularly opened to the public. The wide stone flagged terrace is partially covered by a pergola for al-fresco teas and dining, steps lead down to the gently sloping primary lawn with a stream running through. The other side of the stream are two further gardens where one side is a sunken lawn with rose beds and even a practice cricket wicket. The entire garden has fenced boundaries, a stone wall along the front boundary and a gated drive that leads to a large courtyard parking. The car port and garage are of similar stone construction with beams and a pitched roof for storage. Beside the kitchen are two outside store rooms and a WC.
