Orchard End is an incredibly well-built property on a select development of only 4 houses, which was built about 21 years ago. The owner managed to successfully buy some of the adjoining farmland off the Church Commissioners, extending the garden considerably.


The spacious and well-lit house is approached from a wide entrance door into a double height atrium hall.

A short flight of steps leads down to the reception hall with door to ground floor WC, staircase rising to the spacious first floor landing and a pair of doors into the kitchen/breakfast room. This very bright room benefits from a large amount of windows with two French windows out onto the outside patio area, affording much light to flood into the kitchen. A fully fitted kitchen with an integrated refrigerator, Neff microwave oven, electric single oven and Neff 4-ring gas burner with extractor hood over. 1 bowl stainless steel sink, integrated Neff washing machine and a 2-oven oil-fired Aga.

The sitting room has a working fire with a Jetmaster fireplace and stone mantelpiece with French windows out onto the patio and garden to the side. A pair of doors lead through into the study/dining room, again, with a pair of French windows leading out onto a slate step down onto the paved patio, with fantastic views over the garden beyond.

Off the entrance hall, is a utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier, double sink, Worcester Bosch oil-fired boiler with a range of kitchen units and a door through to the double garage with electrically operated up and over doors. Door to the rear garden. Additional storage over and an electric car charging point.

Upstairs the property has a large master bedroom with integrated wardrobes, far-reaching views over the village and countryside, with an en-suite shower room with WC, wash hand basin and bidet. Bedroom 2, double, with fantastic far-reaching rural views to the side and to the rear. Bedroom 3, double. Bedroom 4, double. Family bathroom with a jacuzzi bath, separate shower and WC and sink unit. On the landing there is an airing cupboard with a factory lagged hot water tank.


A substantial feature of the property are its well landscaped and extended gardens facing West which contain a number of mature fruit trees, including apple, pear, plum and greengage. The vendor has successfully purchased an area of the field and developed the garden into the area, providing additional spaces for raised vegetable beds and a large covered fruit cage at the far end. There are a number of sheds, a greenhouse, Wendy house and circular granite pig trough, which will remain.

The large patio area, which is accessible from numerous openings from the house, is a superb area for outside entertaining with a built-in barbeque and is complemented by a range of garden structures with climbing hydrangea and clematis. The garden at the front has the same patio with a further area of level lawn with herbaceous borders, bordered by a high rendered stone wall. There is a mature cider apple tree in the corner to the other side of the small ornamental garden pond.

The upper triangular section of garden to the rear has an Overage Agreement in favour of the Church Commissioners.


Oil-fired central heating and oil-fired Aga. Bottled Calor gas for the hob. Mains water and private treatment plant drainage.
