A delightful Grade II listed period family home of considerable charm and character, including an inglenook fireplace, dating back to the 16th Century with later extensions.
The property does require some updating, although does have gas central heating and is partially double glazed and offers a rare opportunity to own a charming period country home nestled within its own delightful grounds. There is a large detached outbuilding which comprises two garages at either end with three open-ended bays between, together with storage areas to the rear. This outbuilding offers potential for ancillary accommodation, subject to the usual planning consents. There is also a period stable and a small duck pond which is located at the head of the long drive, which leads to the house. The grounds surrounding the house consist of a variety of established trees, shrubs and fruit trees, fenced kitchen garden with water standpipe, broad level lawns and to the rear of the house, there is an old well, providing water ideal for gardening and a separate paddock/orchard. There is a separate area of woodland located to the other side of Weare Street which offers scope to provide wood-burning for the house. In all, the grounds extend to about 3.4 acres, with the grounds and paddock/orchard amounting to about 1.9 acres and the woodland to about 1.5 acres.
Weare Street is located between Ockley and Capel with both villages providing local shops, pubs, school, church and lovely countryside, ideal for walking and riding.
