The Cheese House is the perfect village family home.   Grade II listed and dating back to the late 17th Century, it has been substantially and sympathetically extended to create a superb and hugely versatile home with beautifully presented and characterful accommodation extending to over 2,700sqft.   The charm and appeal of the original cottage have been enhanced by the modern, oak framed addition to the back and the accommodation addresses all modern day family requirements. The older part of the property retains many original features including exposed timbers, brick floors, casement windows, inglenook and cast iron fireplaces. There is an original “range” and a “copper” in the hallway – the latter would have been used for washing clothes in Victorian times.   

The superbly finished extension has lime blasted oak structural timbers and comprises a wonderful open plan bespoke kitchen, with excellent range of units and granite work surfaces, 2 oven Aga, separate oven hob, Villeroy & Boch sinks, Fisher & Paykel drawer dishwashers and built in fridge and freezer, opening through to the family room/dining area. It is the ideal entertaining space with three sets of French windows opening to the terraces and gardens. An oak staircase leads up the 2 double bedrooms and a shower room and there is also a further ground floor bedroom and shower room.   Stairs lead down to the cleverly designed basement room which is currently used as a cinema room and occasional guest bedroom (this could be used as a 6th bedroom if required). Also in the basement is a “comms” and storage room. From the family room is a large study leading through to the spacious utility room/boot room.   There is also an additional cloakroom off the entrance hall. Accessed via another staircase is the charming master bedroom which leads through to a further bedroom/dressing room and onto the recently refitted bathroom with walk-in shower, double ended bath and twin wash basins.
Highlighting the flexibility of this fantastic property is the detached one bedroom self-contained studio. This has been delightfully fitted out with an open plan sitting room and kitchen and a shower room and would serve as guest/nanny accommodation.

The property is approached up a gently sloping brick pavior driveway opening to a large gravelled parking area providing adequate space for 4-6 cars. A picket gate opens to a path leading to the front door and on to the terrace and gardens.   The attractively landscaped gardens wrap around the house perfectly and are partly terraced. On either side of the property are two large paved terraces providing sun at all times of the day and offering superb spaces for al-fresco dining etc. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with mature planting and pretty trees, with far reaching outlooks from both the front and rear. The site affords beautiful views across the neighbouring countryside and is exceptionally peaceful and secluded. There are three timber sheds for storing bicycles, garden machinery/furniture etc.
