    Platts Down represents a truly stunning, unique and rurally situated country property package offering a rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful oak framed detached residence with superb countryside views, no immediate neighbours and set on about 3.56 acres.

    The property, which is not listed, was constructed in 2015 as a replacement of an earlier dwelling, comprising an oak frame structure, internally exposed and with rendered external elevations beneath a thatched roof. The property offers a blend of charm and character with modern living having met up-to-date building specification, including underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, radiators to the first floor and well insulated, together with double glazed windows and doors.

    Inside this attractively appointed home, on the ground floor; is a thatched porch, an entrance hallway area which leads to a large dual aspect study with woodburning stove and cloakroom off. From this central space is a modern, spacious dual aspect kitchen/dining room. The main feature of this home is an impressive open plan living/reception space with part vaulted ceiling revealing the superb oak frame and beamed timbers enjoying lots of natural light with seven glazed openings, including two sets of patio doors and tall windows either side of the attractive brick fireplace which contains a further woodburning stove. Stairs from this living space rise to the spacious first floor galleried landing area overlooking this wonderful vaulted space. The landing leads to three large double bedrooms, master with en-suite shower room, together with a family bathroom.

    For layout and approximate room measurements please see the enclosed floorplan and refer to the Virtual Tour.


    Platts Down is initially approached from the country lane, via two separate private gated driveways, providing ample off road parking and turning with the first drive leading to a useful detached garage/utility outbuilding. Attractive and established lawned gardens adjoin the front southerly elevation containing a variety of mature trees and flower beds.
    Adjoining the rear of the property is a large pasture paddock with copse area extending to about 3.06 acres which may appeal to those with equestrian/agricultural or amenity interests.
