Property Description

Pusey Furze House is a handsome, attached 6 bedroom Grade II Listed family house with delightful proportions and highly versatile accommodation - designed and set out to provide a separate annexe if required - extending to some 4,887 Sq Ft (454 Sq M), set within approximately half acre grounds and is situated just outside the desirable and picturesque village of Buckland

Once a Georgian farmhouse, believed to date back to c.1740-1750 and retaining a huge amount of character, the property has been the subject of a recent two storey addition; designed and executed in such a way to blend in and be very much a part of the original house, whilst offering the potential to separate into two distinct living spaces.

Character features are seen at every turn: high ceilings, sash windows, fireplaces, wood burning stoves and flagstone floors; these along with modern styling and fittings in the recent addition.

An elegant staircase rises from the entrance hall to a galleried landing and the principle bedrooms. There are three reception rooms; a sitting room, dining room, drawing room and a traditionally fitted kitchen breakfast with an electric Aga and an adjacent utility room. An inner hall opens to a rear lobby, a laundry/boot room, a cloakroom and access to the cellar. On the first floor of the main house are four bedrooms and two bathrooms and on the second floor a large attic/play room. A large loft storage area provides potential. There are two further bedrooms, a further kitchen/breakfast room, bathroom, study, hall and a second staircase in the modern addition. The extent and arrangement of the accommodation provides great overall flexibility.

The house has a gravelled drive and parking to the front and further, gated parking to the side. This is enclosed by hedges and fencing, with an area of lawn and gated access to the rear of the house. Here there is a small lawn, a gravelled path and a gate leading to a paved area with a pergola and an insulated and self-contained wooden studio/office. This has power, lighting, a cloakroom and a fitted sink and worktop.

The garden is a delight: enclosed by old stone walls and with mature trees providing dappled shade through the day across a large lawn. This is interspersed with occasional trees and shrubs, and edged with mature flower and shrub borders. An opening leads to a vegetable garden, surrounded by walls and hedges, with a rustic timber and glass potting shed and store, a greenhouse and soft fruit cage.
