The lounge, ideal for entertaining, provides stunning dual aspects over the gardens and beyond.

The aptly named Heartsease is an incredibly comfortable home.

The first level provides open and bright living space; with a welcoming reception hall setting the tone for the property complete with ornate plasterwork, opening to the lounge; beautifully proportioned and ideal for entertaining, providing stunning dual aspects over the gardens and beyond, with thoughtful upgrades such as the retained coving and cornicing, feature fireplace, as well as working shutters.

Across the hall, a modern and streamlined kitchen with a spacious adjoining open plan dining room, with a cloakroom and excellent in-built storage also opening from the reception hall. Upstairs the grand proportions continue, with two stunning king-size bedrooms, one with modern en-suite shower room, and both of which benefit arguably the most majestic of the hills; extending across endless rolling fields and greenery.

The outdoor space is the perfect complement to the accommodation; hosting a generous landscaped garden and grounds, providing private parking, a garage, lawn and patio, water feature and plentiful borders and beds, there is no shortage of space to enjoy.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
