Description

Ditchetts House is a very charming and attractive village property set just a short distance from the village square. The Grade II listed property has much character and period features and is believed to date from the early 16th Century, originally as an open hall house with subsequent alterations and additions over the centuries.

A superb selling point is the superb, mature walled garden to the rear which is about 260 feet (80m) in length and provides a wonderful backdrop to the house. There are useful outbuildings including one with potential for conversion to alternative uses (subject to the necessary consents) and at the end of the garden is a separate vehicular access and a good sized parking area.

Accommodation

The front door leads into a HALL with stairs to the first floor and to the left is a STUDY with former fireplace and fitted desk and to the right is a cosy SNUG with a brick fireplace, fitted shelving and window seat. The LIVING / DINING ROOM was formerly two rooms and has a lovely outlook to the rear. There are two fireplaces, one with a fitted wood burning stove and a cupboard to the side and many exposed beams. Off this is the BOOT ROOM with former fireplace, cupboard and door into the former garage, now a useful secondary KITCHEN/PANTRY with fitted dresser style unit, work top with shelves below and electric cooker. The KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM has an interesting brick, tiled and cobbled floor and an old water hand pump. There is an oil-fired Rayburn with original 'copper' to the side and a double bowl ceramic sink set into the original counter top from when part of the property was used as a shop. Period panelling and fitted corner cupboard. The GARDEN ROOM has a partly glazed roof, part exposed stone walling and door to outside.

On the FIRST FLOOR the GALLERIED LANDING leads to the FOUR DOUBLE BEDROOMS and BATHROOM. Bedroom one has an outlook over the gardens and has a large DRESSING ROOM which has potential as an en-suite bathroom. The BATHROOM is fitted with a modern suite and has a range of cupboards along one wall. Separate CLOAKROOM with WC.

Outside

The large rear gardens are a particularly impressive feature of the property. Initially there is cobbled area with well-stocked raised beds and a useful BUILDING (27'8 x 8'7 ) to the side with plumbing for washing machine. The gardens extend away from the house to a large lawned area interspersed by a wide array of mature trees including walnut, magnolia, pear, apple, gingko and maple. The gardens are fully enclosed by attractive stone walling providing an exceptional degree of privacy from neighbouring properties. There is a useful two storey BARN, known as 'Saddlers Cottage' with the ground floor providing useful storage and the first floor used as a studio. It is considered that this building has potential for further conversion, subject to the necessary consents.

There is a gated rear vehicular access to the end of the garden where there is plenty of parking and a car port.

In total the property extends to about 0.38 ACRES.
