Originally two stone built cottages adapted to form one charming home, it has generous sized rooms over three floors.

The house is set in delightful, private gardens with unparalleled views across a valley to King Alfred's Tower. The house is loaded with period features including hardwood floors, stone fireplaces, window seats, and wooden beamed ceilings.
This lovely home is south facing, which gives warmth and light to the reception rooms which sit at the front of the house, and therefore also have great views through the traditional, shuttered windows.

There are fitted, wooden kitchen units as well as space for a large kitchen table for cosy family suppers and Sunday lunches.

The bedrooms are located on the first and second floors of the house, and they are in a flexible arrangement as there are two staircases, one at each end of the house. From the hall area the main staircase takes you up to a landing, which leads two double bedrooms, a good size single bedroom and a family shower room. There is also a further double bedroom on the first floor which also has a staircase leading up to the second floor, as well as having a staircase from the ground floor
On the second floor there is a large attic bedroom with a living area, as well as a further double bedroom, both of which have great character and sloping ceilings with velux windows.
The garden wraps around the house, with pretty, level areas of lawn bordered by established shrubs and hedges, and with a gravelled area for a garden table and chairs. A vegetable patch is located outside the back door leading from the kitchen and utility area, and there are also established fruit trees offering some shade. A gravel drive is to one side of the house, leading to the large garage, and also an outbuilding which is a useful size and provides a great opportunity for conversion into an office or annexe.
