Believed to date back more than 250 years, Bentley’s was originally three cottages combined in the mid twentieth century and subsequently extended by the current owners in 1996 and 2000 to now offer exceptional accommodation set out over three floors. Featuring attractive rendered and weatherboard elevations under a warm clay tiled roof the property is situated in the heart of the old village located in a quiet backwater yet only a short walk from the beautiful village green with its famous pond and church. On entering Bentley’s a single storey porch and entrance hall provides access to the main house which includes a spacious 28’ sitting room with exposed natural stone fireplace and log burner and the advantage of a separate family room which in turn leads onto a large utility/boot room and cloakroom. The more recent extension to the north wing has created an outstanding open plan and part vaulted 32’ kitchen/dining room which enjoys a lovely aspect within the main garden. The kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of base and wall units and features a beautiful iroko worktop, island and integrated appliances. Bedroom accommodation is split over two floors via two staircases. However, for younger children, access is available to all bedrooms directly from the first floor. The master bedroom features both a large en-suite shower room and dressing area. The guest bedroom is accessed by its own oak staircase and has an adjoining bathroom whilst the remaining first floor bedrooms are served by a modern shower room. The two attic bedrooms are particularly pretty with exposed timbers and offer elevated views.
Externally and of particular note are the stunning gardens. Bentley’s is approached off Skittles Green and offers two parking spaces and pedestrian access leading to the outstanding mature walled gardens offering an excellent degree of seclusion with well stocked borders, mature fruit trees, a large terrace and a potting shed. The garden also retains the right to a secondary vehicular access from Gibson Lane and a large 15’ outbuilding offering scope to convert/extend (subject to planning) into a home office or studio.
