Featuring delightful painted weatherboard elevations with large brick chimneys under a hipped tile roof, this represents a once-in-a-lifetime chance to own a fabulous period house with countless original features including substantial exposed beams, fireplaces and wonderfully crooked staircases which evidence its age.

    Ideally suited to the outdoors person the glorious Westerly gardens are a true delight, providing a restful and calming atmosphere with areas of wild flowers, meadow-like lawns and a productive kitchen garden with abundant vegetables and fruiting trees. Perfect for those with green fingers and a liking for cricket, it also has clear views over the cricket fields along one side. A large paved terrace partly shaded by a pergola and with a pond are amongst the many areas to enjoy or retreat to outside.

    Measuring over 2,500sq/ft, the accommodation comprises an inviting hallway leading to the wonderful main living room with a comforting farmhouse kitchen/dining room overlooking the gardens behind. A later addition provides further ground floor living space which is completed by a guest cloakroom. Heading up to the wide first floor landing an unexpected view of St Mary's Church spire awaits, with 2 generous bedrooms including the master with en-suite and walk-in wardrobe, plus the family bathroom. The top floor is also enchanting with 2 further beamed bedrooms, a 3rd bathroom and fantastic views from up high.

    It would be impossible to find another such house and this is not a property to extend or re-model. Rather it will amply reward a new custodian who seeks the romance of a treasured home, respecting both the history and materials used to preserve this fine 17th Century building. A further bonus is the close proximity to many highly regarded schools, including John Lyon and Orley Farm, with fast access to London and the Home Counties by rail or road.
