Enjoy the view on the approach to Penfield, a detached home set in an idyllic woodland spot of more than 11 acres.
King George II, grandfather of mad king George III was the reigning monarch when work first started on this house, although there have been a number of later additions.
Buyers will love period features including an inglenook fireplace, painted brickwork and brick fireplaces in some of the bedrooms.
Contemporary features include a bespoke solid wood hand painted kitchen/breakfast room, fitted with Miele appliances and an Alpha oil-fired range which provides the heating and hot water.
On the ground floor are the drawing room, sitting room, dining room, the kitchen/ breakfast room, utility and downstairs cloakroom.
On the first floor, reached by the primary oak staircase, is a principal bedroom suite with en suite bath/shower room. The two remaining bedrooms are reached via a secondary staircase which also leads to the family bathroom.
Both of these bedrooms include period features such as painted wood panelling, brick fireplace, cupboards and have beautiful views over the surrounding land and gardens. The main garden is south west facing and the purple beech hedging enclosing the garden is spectacular.
The borders are mature and planted with bulbs and herbaceous plants which provide a riot of colour throughout the spring and summer. The main garden is fenced off from the remainder of the plot, which includes grazing land and woodland.
There is a gravelled driveway, a double open bay garage and a timber outbuilding.
