What you will love about this home

Modernised Early Victorian manor house situated in a charming village in the heart of rural England. Ivy House is a stone built property dating from about 1840 with lots of original stylish features. The large windows and high ceilings make all the rooms light and airy. The house is warm and cosy in the winter months thanks to a real fire, a wood burner stove and a state of the art heating system. It has a large kitchen/breakfast room with french windows onto the garden, sitting room, study, dining room and downstairs WC / utility room. Upstairs are four bedrooms (one ensuite), dressing room and master bathroom. It boasts a large and pretty walled garden. An extremely comfortable and well appointed home.
