Immersed in secluded sylvan splendour yet with full essentials and services within a 15 minute radius, this exceptional lifestyle property offers a haven of unsurpassed beauty, tranquillity and convenience. The more entrepreneurial will also see potential for visitor accommodation.
Behind a gated entry, the tree-lined circular driveway leads to an ivy-clad home that couldn't be more engaged with nature. A rich composition of cathedral high-beamed ceilings, timber floors, panelling and stone fire-surrounds, the interior is as easy on the eye as it is to relax in. With expansive and strategically positioned glazing and high wrought iron gates it brings the outdoors indoors.
A rambling country-style kitchen lets the gourmet chefs practice their art supported by a full complement of appliances while integration with dining keeps hosts and guests completely engaged. Leafy green patios are perfect for entertaining, relaxation and decompressing but if the day's been particularly stressful why not take a half hour Finnish sauna or spa?
Three bedrooms are serviced by two bathrooms (including master ensuite) while a self-contained forest-hut and garden cottage could be used as a platform for B&B, a retreat or functions centre.
Previously run as a wildlife sanctuary, the six acre (more or less) property is bordered by streams with a canopy of native and exotic plantings, a crystal clear spring and lush meadows. Extensive outbuildings, yards and fencing would also lend well to keeping larger animals - perfect for those with aspirations toward self-sufficiency.
North-facing and benefitting from a superb sun aspect, this idyllic home is sheltered from prevailing winds, enjoys total privacy and is completely at-one with its exceptional environment.
Be warned - this property will cast a spell over all who view it and only very serious buyers should inspect.
