Formally an Inn, The Anchor is a most attractive 18th century grade II listed detached family home constructed from colour washed Wychert elevations under a clay tiled roof set in substantial mature south facing walled gardens. Although requiring updating throughout, the property was extended in the 1920’s creating spacious and well planned accommodation set over two floors with many rooms boasting outstanding views over the pond and rear garden. On entering The Anchor, an entrance hall with terracotta tiled floor provides access to all principle reception rooms which include; a double aspect living room complete with inglenook fireplace, and French doors which in turn leads to a beautiful timber framed double glazed conservatory constructed in 2011 with a tiled floor and double doors leading to the rear garden. Ground floor accommodation continues with a generous dining room featuring exposed ceiling timbers and a fireplace with stock brick surround, a spacious kitchen/breakfast room with built-in storage units and a walk-in pantry, separate utility room and the advantage of a small study.
First floor accommodation features five bedrooms with three large double rooms and two single rooms. All bedrooms are served by two bathrooms one of which includes a separate shower cubicle. Externally The Anchor is situated in the most beautiful of settings being only a stones throw from St Mary’s church and adjoining the famous duck pond. The property is approached via the green and has permission to use a single track lane approaching the house which in turn leads to double doors* providing access to a garage workshop with part glazed/corrugated roof. To the rear of the property and of particular note, are the beautiful south facing walled gardens with stunning easterly views towards the church. Offering total seclusion, the gardens are laid predominantly to lawn with a terrace and ornamental pond directly behind the house. Beyond the lawn almost half of the garden has been dedicated to a kitchen garden served by a stone clad store at the rear boundary. The gardens also feature a substantial detached stone outbuilding ideal for conversion into a studio or home office and there is a timber green houses located behind the house with direct access from the utility room.
