Description

Lavender Mead is a Grade II listed house dating originally from the 14th century. This iconic thatch home has bags of charm and character with all the period features you could hope for, to include: functioning inglenook fireplace, exposed beams and even a well which is believed to date to the construction of the house which was only discovered by the most recent owners.

The house is entered into via the porch from which you have access to the dining room and sitting room. Both have period fireplaces and the sitting room has stable doors to open directly onto the South-facing terrace and established cottage garden. The kitchen is recently fitted by the current owner who is a chef. There is another stable door from here out onto the lane. Through the kitchen you reach the utility room and pantry and downstairs cloakroom. The South-facing wing on the ground floor is currently in use as an Air BnB with its own entrance. On the ground floor there is also a home office which would also lend itself to being a boot room with direct access to the garden.

Upstairs, the master bedroom has a dual-aspect outlook and it’s own en suite shower and loo. There are three further bedrooms on this floor making five bedrooms in total. There also is a family bathroom and two staircases. Planning is in place to open up an additional bedroom on the first floor. Additionally there is a spacious cellar perfect for a home office or gym.

The house is set in just under half an acre of land. Access is off the lane straight onto a pretty gravel drive with space with multiple cars. The front garden is currently in use with a duck coop but would also be perfect for chickens. Previous owners had lawn and flower beds in this area and used it as the perfect spot for a table to watch the sunset from. The garden sweeps round to the back of the house which is classic English country garden awash with roses and lavender. There is a terrace with rose arbour, raised beds for vegetables, a large climbing frame for children and sheds which are awaiting planning permission for conversion into a home office with bi-folding doors onto the garden. The layout is perfect for al fresco lunching and sunbathing in the summer on the lawns.
