Occupying a delightful semi rural position on the southern outskirts of the village, this gorgeous period home has an abundance of original character features and incredible potential for the right buyer.
Approached via a shared access from the main road, a five bar gate then leads through to a lovely sweeping driveway that continues to a large gravelled parking area and several garages. The main entrance to the front of the house is gained via a pedestrian gated footpath leading to an attractive period front door and storm porch, however as is customary with most farmhouses the kitchen provides to more well used pathway into the house. On the ground floor are no less than four separate reception rooms including a formal dining dining, sitting room, snug and breakfast room, complete with a well proportioned kitchen with pantry plus a handy utility and downstairs WC. Throughout the reception rooms are a host of original features including stunning open fireplaces, wonderful timber beams and gorgeous farmhouse style doors with traditional ironmongery.
On the first floor are the four bedrooms, all of which enjoy lovely aspects either over the property's own garden or open countryside to the front. There is also a spacious family bathroom with three piece suite plus a separate shower cubicle.
Just outside the kitchen there is also a useful building with electricity, radiator and telephone point plus separate telephone line, for use as a home office with a separate telephone line ideal for use as a home office or study.
The grounds and garden at Cherry Tree House are simply delightful, measuring approximately 0.85 acre the property sits towards the front of the plot with a large sweeping lawn enjoying a superb southwest aspect to the rear. With an incredible amount of privacy and several scenic spots to enjoy the serene setting the garden really is a joy! There is a good sized patio attached to the house which is perfect for outside dining, a pretty ornamental pond with a decked seating area ideal for watching over the visiting wildlife and lawns that stretch as far as the eye can see. There is an original outside well, a green house, shed and lovely mature trees and plants throughout the garden.
There is also huge potential at Cherry Tree house. A large stone built garage/workshop is perfect for those who love to tinker with vintage vehicles whilst a further three garages provide ample car storage. However, subject to the necessary consents, there is also excellent potential to create an annex or even a holiday let by restoring and potentially combining some of the outbuildings or potentially even extend the footprint of the main house into the generous grounds.
