An enchanting, detached house in New England style, set in exceptional mature grounds of this rural idyll.

The house is located in the popular downland village of West Hendred and has been beautifully renovated to create a quite stunning house complimented by fabulous grounds that can be viewed from the main reception rooms. On entering the hallway, one is immediately struck by the stunning view through the house to the garden. The kitchen/dining room is the heart of the accommodation with an open plan arrangement linking the hallway with the kitchen/dining room. The kitchen itself has a range of integrated appliances together with a breakfast bar finished with a Caesarstone quartz worktop. Beyond the kitchen is a utility room with an outside door and a door leading to a super games room with bar area and a guest bedroom with en suite shower room beyond. The dining area has access to a downstairs bathroom and leads to a cosy reading room which, in turn, leads to the sitting room. The sitting room has a hardwood oak floor with a Handol log burner as the centrepiece and bifold doors leading out to the patio and garden. The first floor of the house is accessed via two staircases, one from the rear lobby leading to the main bedroom with en suite shower room and built-in wardrobes. There is a WC and another bedroom on this side that links with the bedroom on the other landing so the accommodation can be joint or separate. The second staircase is accessed from the entrance hall and leads to two further bedrooms and a shower room. The bedrooms benefit from having eaves storage and dormer windows that enjoy the view of the garden.

The garden extends to almost an acre and is mainly laid to lawn interspersed with an array of mature trees including a weeping willow and a range of fruit trees. At the far boundary is the West Hendred brook. There is a large thriving wildlife pond with crystal clear water, three raised beds for a kitchen garden and a generous raised patio dining area accessed from the dining room bifold doors.. There are two garden sheds and an absolutely charming thatched bothy. To the front of the house is a detached garage and a large driveway for several cars.
