Set towards the end of a peaceful no through lane, 'Little Vaust' is approached via a gated driveway with a sweeping track leading to ample parking and a double garage. A generous lawn with several mature fruit trees and an established hedgerow sits to the front of the house, standing it well away from any neighbouring properties.
Having been sympathetically extended over past decades the property now comprises four bedrooms, three separate reception rooms, kitchen, utility, downstairs shower room, family bathroom and ensuite. There is also exceptional scope (subject to the necessary consents) to further extend the property if desired.
Entering the home via a pretty storm porch you continue into a spacious reception hallway with a feature stone wall and open staircase rising to the first floor. The charming sitting room is to the left of the hallway and features a handsome stone fireplace, exposed timber beams, French doors to the garden and a glorious triple aspect. Beyond the sitting room is further reception room which has a lovely, vaulted ceiling and has been used in the past as a fifth bedroom, music room and playroom.
To the rear of the hallway is the fourth bedroom with adjoining shower room which doubles as a small guest suite, perfect for visiting relatives who perhaps find climbing stairs a challenge. To the far end of the hallway lies the dining room with its tiled floor and whitewashed walls, the dining room then continues through an open arch to the kitchen which is fitted with a good range of matching shaker style wall and base units with tiles splashback and tiled floor. There is an integrated dishwasher, twin eye level ovens, induction hob and plumbing for white goods in the extended utility room which also has patio doors to the garden.
On the first floor are the three double bedrooms, all of which enjoy their own unique character and wonderful outlooks over the surrounding grounds and countryside. Two of the bedrooms share use of the family bathroom while the main bedroom benefits from an en suite shower room and a row of fitted wardrobes.
Outside, 'Little Vaust' sits in beautiful and versatile grounds, perfect for family life or those with an equestrian interest. Recreational pursuits are well catered for by way of a 30' heated outdoor pool housing kitchenette, changing shower room, separate toilet and pump and boiler for the pool. The large rear paddock, whilst ideal for homing a pony or two, has also doubled as a two-hole golf practice course for our current vendors. There are numerous further outbuildings including a two-berth wooden stable, large tool shed (attached to the double garage) and a summer house and wooden gazebo.
Running alongside the paddock is a fenced orchard which produces a rich variety of apples, along with several other traditional fruit trees. Finally, towards the rear of the paddock lies a wild area for Ecology.
