The Retreat is a lovely old house with origins dating back to the mid-18th Century. It has a classically pretty and symmetrical front facade with sash windows and a central projecting porch, typical of the Georgian era and is Listed Grade II. The front door opens into a spacious hall, either side of which are 2 well proportional reception rooms both with high ceilings, sash windows with shutters and fireplaces. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of cupboards and incorporates a dual fuel range style cooker and a walk-in larder. Also on the ground floor is a utility room and a charming Victorian conservatory with an ancient vine. On the 1st floor there are 2 double bedrooms both with fireplaces and sash windows and far reaching views. There is an en-suite shower room to the main bedroom and in a wing projecting to the rear of the house, there is a 3rd reception room, over looking the courtyard, which could serve as another double bedroom. Beyond there is a study/dressing room/potential en-suite. On the 2nd floor there are 2 attics double bedrooms both with amazing views. Outside there is a gated access to a car port and immediately to the rear of the house a charming paved courtyard. There is a substantial former coach house and stables running alongside the courtyard which is currently used for storage but could potentially be used for other purposes. Steps lead up to the main area of garden which is a good size and subdivided into 2 principle areas.
