In addition there is a stable block with a tack room and hay store and a large outbuilding with workshop, storage area and garaging. All set in around 18 acres of landscaped gardens, paddocks, a field and water meadow.

In the main house the ground floor has four reception rooms including a spacious drawing room and conservatory, a kitchen/breakfast room with French doors opening out onto a decked area overlooking the stream and original 17th-century stone footbridge.

Built in the early 1900s, this charming detached farmhouse is full of character and contains lots of period features, including fireplaces, stripped-wood flooring, picture rails, high ceilings and good-sized rooms.

Chaney Court has been modernised over time with white aluminium double-glazed windows and, most recently, a new shower room. There is a real‘heart of the home’ kitchen that’s big enough for a good-sized family dining table and chairs, as well as a family room and a sitting room, both with feature fireplaces, a useful boot room and a boiler/utility room.

Upstairs are four spacious bedrooms and the family bathroom, plus stairs to the loft room which could be an ideal teenager’s den or office.

The separate Lodge has an integral garage, plus three bedrooms, a kitchen/diner and lounge, making it ideal as annexe accommodation for guests or family members, or for rental as a holiday let. It comes complete with its own garden area.

The grounds of around 1.5 acres include a kitchen garden and paddock with its own separate access for a horse box or trailer plus two barns.
