A beautifully-designed courtyard-style barn conversion with separate cottage, in a tranquil, rural location.
Improved and extended by the current owner, Pond House is a beautifully presented home offering light and spacious accommodation, with a delightful outlook onto the courtyard from the principle rooms of the main house. To the ground floor the reception hall provides access to the study, and to the sitting room and library which both have exposed timbers and beams, and stunning feature wood burning fireplaces.
The triple aspect kitchen/breakfast features a bespoke Thomas Ash painted fitted kitchen, oil fired Aga, vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and sky lights, central island and twin double doors opening onto the courtyard; creating the perfect entertaining space. The drawing room has part-vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and three-sets of double doors providing a wealth of natural light and leading to the courtyard. An en suite bedroom, utility and separate shower room complete the ground floor. On the 1st floor is the master bedroom with exposed timbers, fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room; 2 further double bedrooms (1 with an en suite bathroom) and a family shower room.
Pond House is approached via a private lane leading to a gravel driveway, which provides ample parking. A decorative iron gate provides access to the courtyard with raised sleeper flower beds, silver birch and an olive tree. On the north side of the courtyard is a self-contained cottage with sitting room, kitchen, shower room and mezzanine bedroom.
The garden itself is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees (including ancient oak) and raised flower beds, with neighbouring farmland and fields beyond providing picturesque views. One of the highlighted features of the property is the natural pond which lies to the rear. Surrounded by mature trees and with a large decking/jetty area and stunning outlook; this area provides the perfect spot for al fresco dining or for simply enjoying the tranquil location.
