Under Offer

Built in 1905, Orchard house is a freestyle Arts and Crafts family home, designed by Alexander Ellis Anderson and retains some original features such as the doors and the staircase. Situated on a generous plot of approximately one third of an acre, in the heart of picturesque Bugbrooke village, the current owners have sympathetically extended the property to create a characterful and versatile layout. The stunning open plan kitchen, dining, family room is the hub of the house, with views over the garden. The full accommodation comprises; entrance hall with feature stained glass, cloakroom/WC, sitting room with open fireplace, family room, contemporary kitchen breakfast family room with integrated appliances, central island, family area and adjoining utility room. To the first floor are four double bedrooms, a study area and a family bathroom. The master features fitted wardrobes, an en-suite shower room and a stylish Juliet balcony with full height windows to the garden. Outside, the south facing rear garden has been well landscaped with a choice of entertaining areas, mature lawn and established trees and flower borders. The gardens wrap around to a well planned kitchen garden with vegetable beds and fruit trees. To the rear is a brick outbuilding, formerly a coach house and stabling, currently used for extra storage but could be converted into an annex or self contained office/studio. The large driveway to the front allows off road parking for several vehicles and access to the single garage. An early viewing is highly recommended. EPC: E
