The Old Wheelwrights is a beautiful family home surrounded by its own gardens in a secluded setting. The earliest part of the house is believed to date from the 17th Century and the house has many period features, including exposed timbers in the kitchen and fireplaces in both the dining room and sitting room. The sitting room is light and spacious with an attractive alcove and views of the gardens on three sides.

The dining room has a large fireplace and striking tiled floor. The kitchen is well equipped with an AGA, wooden units and solid ash worktops, ceramic sink, plumbing for a dishwasher and walk-in pantry. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large utility room with built-in units, an electric cooker, butler sink, plumbing for a washing machine, space for a tumble dryer, large airing and storage cupboard and door leading to the drive and gardens. The entrance hall has an under-stair cupboard and access to the cloakroom and stairs leading to the first floor.

The master bedroom is light and spacious, with views on two sides of the gardens and surrounding countryside, a walk in wardrobe and bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, the largest having a walk-in wardrobe, and an attractive landing leading to the family bathroom.

The property has the advantage of a semi-detached cottage, currently used for bed and breakfast accommodation and as an annex. The open-plan sitting room/kitchen has an attractive terracotta tiled floor with underfloor heating, large fireplace, built in base units and integral fridge. There is a wet room with underfloor heating and towel rail. On the first floor is a bedroom with views over the garden. The cottage has its own entrance, patio and lawn.

The Old Wheelwrights is accessed via a gravelled driveway with parking for several cars. The barn is an attractive timber framed building that could be converted to an annex, holiday lets or offices, subject to planning consents.

The main house is at the end of the driveway, surrounded by gardens containing mature trees, shrubs and flower beds. The gardens are surrounded by mature hedging and willow panel fencing, providing a secluded and private space.
