Fir Trees House

Fir Trees House is a substantial family home built by the current owners and latterly extended to provide exceptional annex accommodation. Surrounded by farmland and with far-reaching views, the property sits comfortably in a lovely plot of approximately 1 acre including the driveway and orchard.

The house has been intelligently designed to provide superb family accommodation and a spacious feel throughout, with three good reception rooms and a modern, open-plan family kitchen and breakfast room. The annex enables independent private living for a family member but this could no doubt be re-incorporated into the main house if required.

Fir Trees House Accommodation

An impressive reception hall with a huge galleried landing creates an immediate feeling of space and light on arrival. From here, there is access straight through to the dual aspect, L-shaped living room, which has a fireplace, doors leading outside and windows providing excellent views over the gardens and farmland beyond.

To the front of the property, a second sitting room has a lovely, relaxed feel and benefits from a sunny southerly aspect to enjoy whilst reading a good book or simply relaxing with friends.

The hub of the home is undoubtedly the large family kitchen, dining and breakfast room: a modern and sociable space with access straight out to the decking. The fully fitted kitchen features curved units with wooden work surfaces, along with a separate breakfast bar at which to enjoy a morning coffee. The adjacent utility room is ideal for keeping the essentials out of the way and leads through to the rear lobby and gardens beyond.

On the first floor, there is a large window providing eye-catching views over fields and farmland. The master bedroom at the rear has windows to two sides and benefits from its own en suite shower room. The remaining three bedrooms are serviced by the family bathroom.

Annex Accommodation

The annex enjoys an independent feel, with its own separate front door leading into the hallway. There are stairs up to the first floor and doors to the ground floor cloakroom and the open-plan kitchen and living area. This is a large, comfortable space with windows to the front and double doors out to the decking.

The first-floor accommodation comprises a bathroom and four bedrooms, one of which could also be used as a separate living room with two windows letting in plenty of light and offering glorious views.


Fir Trees House is surrounded by lawned gardens, with views all around. It is approached via its own long, sweeping driveway bordered by a well-tended orchard, which opens up to a large parking area in front of the property.

There is an area of lawn to the front and continuing around to the rear, with shrubbery, trees and fenced boundaries. A large patio is accessible from the living room and a timber decking area adjoins both the main house and the annex.

Timber outbuildings provide plenty of room for outdoor storage, while the greenhouse is certain to be enjoyed by those with green fingers.
