DESCRIPTION

Knapp is one of just three properties down a quiet lane surrounded by countryside. The original cottage is believed to date back to the 19th Century and has been significantly extended over the years to create an individual home with flexible accommodation.

Beneath the front entrance porch, a timber door opens to a reception hall which, in addition to a Utility area, provides a link between the original and newer parts of the house. The western 'wing' comprising Sitting Room and Study, both with doors out into the gardens, the Study has fitted cupboards and door to the front.

Straight on from the hall is a bright, vaulted ceilinged Family Room extending across the rear of the cottage and features windows and door overlooking the gardens. Steps descend to an inner hall to the Kitchen, bathroom and eastern wing with a generous reception room/bedroom. This room offers potential for division and/or en suite provision.

The Kitchen is fitted with a range of units with quarry tiled floor and space for a dining table leading through to an adjoining office/utility room. On the first floor, separated by a central bathroom are two double bedrooms, the larger of which has a door into substantial walk in attic room.

OUTSIDE

The land and gardens are positioned to the rear of the property extending to over 7 acres and accessed from both the rear of the house and from the lane.

Extending across the rear of the property is a paved terrace, with partly covered verandah, the remainder a sheltered courtyard/patio. Beyond are lawns sweeping around a central pond with rain fed pebble feature. This is a delightful entertaining private space enjoying uninterrupted views. Wild meadow extends into the distance before transitioning to woodland, and orchard with a variety of rewarding fruit and nut trees. To the side of the house are two large open-ended barns with gated vehicular access up around the side from the lane. To the front of the property is an area of hard standing and open car barn.
