Ivy House commands a wonderful setting within spectacular gardens and grounds of approximately 1.5 acres. The property is believed to have early 18th Century origins enlarged in the early and late 19th Century with more recent additions added by the current owners. The property is of timber framed and clunch construction, rendered with pitched pan tiled and clay tiled roofs. The whole has in recent years been sympathetically restored to create a quite exceptional family home. Every effort has been made to retain and restore original period features such as timber and brick flooring, feature fireplaces and wall panelling and the more modern improvements have been carried out with great care and attention to detail so as to blend in seamlessly with the original.

The result is truly unique with the ground floor accommodation affording considerable versatility and upstairs can be found 4-5 generous bedrooms and 2 bath/shower rooms. Particularly worth of note is the sitting room with conservatory/orangery extension overlooking the gardens and the kitchen/family room has been beautifully fitted in a traditional style with 4 oven Aga, granite worktops and built in appliances.

The picturesque gardens and grounds surround the property and enjoy a southerly aspect with the detached barn/studio offering any number of possibilities.

The property is approached via a sweeping gravelled driveway leading to car parking to the front of the property and further car parking to the rear. There is a detached double garage and adjacent detached barn/studio currently used as a playroom/children's den. The gardens surround the property to all sides and screened from the road by mature trees and hedging enjoy maximum privacy and seclusion. The neatly trimmed formal lawn is flanked by shaped flowerbeds and borders thickly planted with well established bushes and shrubs and there are several specimen mature trees. There is a large paved terrace immediately to the rear of the property, water feature/pond, ornamental gardens including box hedging, and enjoying a southerly aspect, the grounds in all extend to approximately 1.5 acres.
