This former farmhouse in attractive local stone has been beautifully modernised and is set in a superb rural location with generous gardens and lovely views through fields from both the front and the rear of the property.

With three bedrooms and a luxury dining kitchen, Arthur’s Well House is approached up a sweeping driveway. The comfortable and spacious family accommodation must be viewed to be appreciated.

Through the entrance porch there is the hall, cloakroom, a snug or sitting room with range, a ground floor shower room, a 21ft lounge and 20ft dining kitchen. Further features include a balcony with stunning countryside views, a spindle-balustraded staircase which leads to the galleried landing, master bedroom with dressing room and en suite bathroom and a further two bedrooms.

There are gardens to the front, side and back of the house, a small front garden with a stone flagged pathway and a flower and shrub bed, an extensive lawned side garden with flower beds and trees, and a shaped lawned rear garden with flower beds and a stone-flagged patio.

Other garden features are pergolas, a greenhouse, and vegetable plots. The cosy snug and sitting room boasts a cast iron range with coal effect gas fire, a built-in floor-to-ceiling pine cupboard and a beamed ceiling, while the lounge’s open fire has a mahogany surround with marble inset and a copper surround.

The double-glazed French window look out to the back of the house and then it is into the spacious dining kitchen, which is open plan to the galleried landing and has a two-floor height.

The staircase rises from the hall to the landing with its balcony area, which has stunning views over open countryside.

One wall in the kitchen diner is of exposed stonework, and the three-section hardwood double glazed bay window has a useful window seat. It is a light oak custom built fitted kitchen with a corner fitted sink, an integral dishwasher, an island unit with ceramic hob and under oven.

The floor is tiled and with built-in seating below the bay window there are fine views across the fields.

Upstairs the master bedroom has a cast iron fireplace, a spacious en suite bathroom and two hardwood double glazed windows overlooking the side and the back of the house.
