Harper & Stone are delighted to present to the market Easter Cornhill: an impressive family home of approximately 317sqm boasting 5-bedrooms, flexible modern living space and substantial garden grounds. This unique property was originally built as a single storey cottage circa 1850 and has been extended in 2011 and 2012 to the South and West with two storey extensions of natural stone, slate roof and extensive glazing.
The property is finished to a very high standard with engineered oak flooring in the kitchen and principal bedroom with high quality floor coverings throughout the ground floor reception areas and extensive glazed areas. The property sits in a semi-rural position and benefits from the most spectacular views across surrounding countryside and beyond.
Entry into the property is through a fully glazed front door into a welcoming reception dining area. A feature woodburning stove adds additional warmth to the oil-fired central heating system.
Within the West wing of the property is the kitchen/dining/family room and principal bedroom suite. The kitchen/dining/family area is a generous size with access to the garden via French doors, which the current owners use as their everyday entry to the property.
The kitchen provides ample storage space and a large island with dining table to one end ensure this is a great space for entertaining and modern family living. The neutral-finish wall and base units are complemented by granite worktops. A large 5-door AIMS AGA with 2 hotplates and is the heart of the kitchen. Integrated appliances include an oven, grill, microwave, a double fridge/freezer, dishwasher and Quooker tap providing instant filtered and boiling water. There is space for a large sofa and tv area for relaxing, and a gas flame stove stands as a focal point of the room.
The principal bedroom suite is located above the kitchen/dining/family area, where the full height cathedral style windows are designed to take advantage of the spectacular panoramic views while allowing daylight to flood the space. The dressing room is a good size with ample space for clothes storage and leads to the en suite, which is equipped with underfloor heating and a 5-piece suite of freestanding bath, separate walk-in shower, vanity unit with sink, and WC.
Returning to the entrance hallway, there is an internal hall with convenient WC and a utility room, with access to the rear garden. The laundry includes an additional sink and further units with space for laundry appliances.
The lounge is located to the centre of the property and forms part of the original cottage. Fitted bookshelves have been added and an open fire creates a cosy atmosphere. From here a corridor along the ground floor leads to three further bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room as well as an additional shower room in the hall.
At the end of the corridor, the hall opens again and a further wooden staircase, with glazed roof above, leads to a bright and spacious guest bedroom with en suite shower room. There full height windows showcase the views across the countryside and surrounding farmland.
At the far end of the South wing of the house is a fantastic games room with tiled floor and a generous cupboard. Double French doors open to a patio area to the front of the property, a fantastic seating area benefitting from an inbuilt pizza oven.

A timber outbuilding is positioned at the top of the driveway, with two car ports and a gym with light, power and heat, and further parking for several cars. A large flat lawn sits to the side, ideal as a children’s play area. The garden immediately behind the house consists of a collection of raised beds, pathways and timber bridges over the stream which runs throughout.
