Pinecroft offers a wonderful family home, bursting with period charm and offering sensational valley views. The accommodation flows beautifully and has an instantly welcoming and homely vibe with numerous entertaining spaces and cosy corners. The two main receptions are a mirror image of each other, leading off either side of the entrance hall. Pretty bay windows allow an abundance of natural light, offering the perfect spot to relax with a book whilst soaking up the panorama and working equally well as lovely spaces for entertaining family and friends. Both rooms benefit from working fireplaces with a wood burner inset in the sitting room, offering a lovely 'cosy-up' for the colder months. The kitchen is located to the rear of the property and is clearly the heart of the house. Fitted solid pine units provide ample storage and there is room for a dining table, providing a great space to chat with guests whilst cooking up a feast. A spacious utility/boot room plus cloakroom leads off the kitchen, providing the ideal spot to hide laundry and with access to the outside; this room is well-placed for offloading muddy boots and coats following a country walk. Four bedrooms are located on the first floor, together with a spacious family bathroom. All of the rooms benefit from ample storage space and the two front facing bedrooms have superb valley views. A stone workshop adjoins the house with a superb room above, currently used as a gym.
Pinecroft's landscaped garden is immaculately presented with numerous areas creating 'rooms' within the garden. Manicured box topiary hedges, neatly mowed lawns, a cottage garden, stone storage outhouse, wood store and greenhouse, together create a garden that is both practical whilst simultaneously a pretty and magical haven . A good size patio to the front of the house offers a wonderful area for alfresco entertaining whilst enjoying the superb views, together with further seating areas located around the garden. A sweeping drive leads to the rear of the property with ample room to park several cars, whilst also providing additional garden space.
