Hartley House is an idyllic village house, being an attractive building with Virginia Creeper and a climbing rose on it south facing front elevation which overlooks its garden. The accommodation is generous with lots of space and also privacy having several reception rooms and plenty of bedrooms.

The front door opens to a spacious entrance hall with oak flooring, 3 large store cupboards and a cloakroom with a loo and lots of space for coats.

The adjacent sitting room has pine floorboards, a double aspect, fireplace and a door through into the 26ft. drawing room - a comfortable room with an open fireplace and double doors into the garden room. This has a tiled floor, ceiling blinds and French doors into the garden.

A door from the drawing room leads through into the farmhouse style kitchen & dining room.

This part of the house has been extended by the present owners and it's a great room, the heart of the house, having kitchen area and dining areas. It's also very light and airy having a lantern roof light, double French doors to the garden and oak flooring.

The kitchen area is well fitted with floor and wall units, hardwood worktops and a Stoves range cooker.

Adjacent is a large boot and utility room with a tiled floor, sink unit, fitted cupboards plus space and plumbing for washing machine and dryer. A door opens to the garden

On the first floor, there are 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and front and back stairs. One bedroom is in the middle of the house and can be approached from another bedroom or from a landing. This gives all the rooms total privacy.

The staircase from the kitchen leads to the west side of the house and a landing which serves 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. Two of these bedrooms have excellent ranges of fitted wardrobes and cupboards and the 3rd has a hand basin. The bathroom is spacious and has both a bath and shower.

The staircase from the entrance hall leads to the east landing and this serves two more bedrooms and a bathroom.

A drive leads into the property and there is a parking area in front of the two garages adjacent to the house. The front garden is lawned with a small Lilly Pond, herbaceous flower beds and numerous shrubs.

The gardens continue around the house and to a very private rear garden. Again, mainly lawned with shrubs, trees, a shed and greenhouse.

Immediately outside the dining room is a paved terrace with views westwards over meadows and ideal for al fresco evening dining.

Other features are well established boundary hedgerows and various trees including apple, silver and magnolia.

Hartley House is on the market with Roderick Thomas for £925,000
