Property description

Beautifully presented, traditional weather boarded barn-style dwelling with stunning vaulted reception / dining hall, handmade Orwells kitchen and well-proportioned living room with inglenook-style fireplace with wood burning stove. The property further benefits from extensive additional accommodation with change of use to B1a (offices) approved.

Seamlessly combining contemporary style with the traditional barn exterior, Orchard House is an immaculately presented property, set in five acres of land, with substantial, versatile secondary accommodation.

The accommodation is presented in a horseshoe shape around a central courtyard, with the right-hand wing forming the residential property. The remainder of the versatile rooms were previously utilised as a kindergarten but a change of use to 'offices' has now been approved.

The main house comprises a central, vaulted reception / dining hall with the generously-proportioned living room and stunning, bespoke kitchen to either side - creating the perfect flow - ideal for both entertaining or for the family. The living room benefits from an imposing brick fireplace with wood burning stove - ideal for cosy autumnal evenings.
The stunning, handmade kitchen was designed and installed by Orwells - and features a central island with ample seating at the breakfast bar - perfect for informal dining or simply to sit and chat over a coffee. The stylish kitchen is well-appointed with a range of integrated appliances and is further complemented by the adjacent utility room and pantry.
Completing the ground floor accommodation is a further room - currently fitted as a second kitchen, that could be re-imagined as an additional bedroom, study or reception room, and a cloakroom.
Upstairs, off the galleried landing, the property offers three double bedrooms, all of which are fitted with built-in wardrobes, and a contemporary family bathroom; the master bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room.

The additional accommodation, with planning approved for business use, is in excess of 2300 square feet and is for offices and kitchen / bathroom facilities. In total, the accommodation of the residence, offices and barns is approximately 5000 square feet, and is set within approximately 5 acres (sts). The extensive and private grounds include the courtyard, gardens, the orchard and a paddock.
