In the heart of this picturesque landscape is the most enchanting and unique 5-bedroom detached family home situated on a generous plot of just over 4 acres.

From the moment you park your car on your drive and walk through the gate onto the walk through to the veranda with the most beautiful views over your garden and countryside you really do have that relaxed feeling knowing you are home and also in the knowledge that you own a wonderful plot that has so much further potential to nurture over the years as the current family have done over their time caring and nurturing this warm and welcoming family property.

The property itself has been developed over the years to what was originally a single storey bungalow to now a large versatile family home since the owners bought it in 1982.

The accommodation includes a wonderful living room where there is a fabulous wood burning stove for those cold winter nights but also there are the most beautiful picture windows that feel like they are bringing the garden into the room. Leading from the living room is the rustic and charming kitchen with plenty of room for a breakfast table and again perfect for entertaining as adjoining the formal dining room or double doors lead out to the veranda where you can entertain guests in the warmer months with beautiful views over the gardens.

On from the formal dining room there is a spacious hallway that leads to a bedroom and shower room where there is also a cloakroom and a utility room leading then to the rear courtyard patio. A further inner hallway leads to 2 double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the ground floor.

Stairs lead to the first floor where on the landing there are a range of storage cupboards. Doors lead to two further double bedrooms both benefiting from views over the gardens and countryside with a wonderful shared balcony to enjoy the views sitting out with breakfast and a cup of coffee or a glass of wine in the evenings.

This beautiful home is not your 5 bedroom executive family home but a unique and loved family home with a welcoming energy that envelops you as you walk in and around. There are improvements a new family may wish to make and that is what is wonderful is that there is further potential to be explored. Also the property has solar panels and has the benefit of a heat pump negating the need for oil or LPG. This also helps to improve the energy performance of the property.

Externally there is a summerhouse in the back corner of the garden and perfect as a studio or a teenage den so whether you have teenagers or work from home or both there is the opportunity to benefit from the outhouse.

The owners over their time have spent a lot of energy to create a wilderness garden and with the woodland they wanted to create a garden that could be enjoyed but also be used by all and it is not your mature and nurtured garden but one where the owners have taken much care pride and joy in having zero chemicals and looking after the land organically. There are formal veg plots but if you wished to create further there is ample space to do this. What is so lovely about the plot is you have further potential to create the rooms that the owners have within the land and what a space it is for children as well as adults to escape the stresses of everyday life from the formal garden area which has been fenced to an area where there is ample space of lawn for goals, trampoline and for children to kick a ball, to the more unnurtured where there is a previously timber built castle for the grandchildren. A gate leads to the woodland and the main part of the land leading down to where there is a famous stream.

The stream is a lovely place to sit and also has probably a few tales to tell as further upstream is the famous Pooh Bridge where it has been famous for the Winnie the Pooh stories of playing Pooh Sticks. There are lovely natural ferns and also various patches of Bluebells in the woods.

This home is not polished it is not all gleaming but what it does have is warmth and character that is difficult to find in those more modern homes you can go and view. If looking for your own bit of privacy and security and a home that feels like you own a bit of Narnia then this is certainly well worth a viewing and I would be delighted to show you around.
