General information This six bedroom detached family home is situated in grounds of approximately 3.11 acres and offers ideal family accommodation and truly magnificent grounds.

Set back from the road along a shingle driveway Paternoster House has been lovingly extended and renovated by the current owners to create this stunning six bedroom, six reception room family home which boasts four bath and shower rooms, large garden room along with two cart lodges, various other outbuildings and heated outdoor swimming pool.

From the reception hall you lead into a spacious central spine hallway where stairs rise to the galleried landing above which extends through into the garden room and doors give access to all rooms. To one end of the property the original 19th century cottage creates two reception rooms along with a secondary kitchen and further hallway and entrance door. Open plan with the entrance hall is a spacious snug with window looking through into the garden room and gardens beyond. The drawing room has a bay window to the rear elevation along with two windows to the side, a central fireplace and double doors opening though to the garden room. The kitchen/breakfast room benefits from an oil fired Aga, a range of base level cupboards, twin butler sink and a four ring gas hob. A door leads through to the large utility room with a further door leading out to the side garden. Whilst from the kitchen double opening doors lead into the formal dining room with window to the front elevation and traditional cast iron fireplace with inset gas coal effect fire set upon a granite hearth.

To the first floor there are six bedrooms with the master bedroom having an oriel bay window to the rear elevation and benefits from a dressing room with a range of fitted wardrobes and door leading through into the four piece en-suite. Bedrooms three and four have access to the four piece family bathroom. Whilst bedroom five and six are located down a step in to the original part of the property and benefits from a separate three piece bathroom including a roll top, claw foot bath. Worthy of note is the galleried landing with two velux roof lights to the rear elevation and space to sit and enjoy the views looking out over the gardens and views towards the River Blackwater beyond.
