Orchard House was designed by a well known local architect and built in the late 1960's, a classic example of mid twentieth-century design. Of brick construction with insulated cavity walls on concrete footings with a part slate/part concrete tiled roof.
It is a well proportioned seven bedroom home, designed to make the most of the natural light with stylish open plan living areas and flexible accommodation with separate eastern and western wings, each accessed by their own staircases, giving the opportunity for independent accommodation or indeed holiday letting. On a generous plot off a no through road the gardens enjoy a south westerley aspect with lovely views to open farmland. EPC TBC

The property enjoys a generous plot, the gardens were designed and landscaped by the architect. A gate at the front and paved path open to the front gardens which have a mature hedge boundary to the lane. They extend around to the side and rear of the property, laid to lawn with a variety of mature shrubs and trees and borders, thoughtfully planted to provide year round colour and interest. At the rear of the property is a Greenhouse and a path leads around to the side where the oil tank is situated. This leads in turn to the covered storage area. The gardens enjoy a south westerly aspect and back on to open farmland. There is a public footpath which runs inside and along the western boundary of the gardens. There is a stile at either end. The vendors inform us it is rarely used. It could easily be fenced off.
Planning Permission was granted in 1986 for the use of part of the existing residential accommodation as an architects studio.
