Dating from the 16th Century, the house is full of charm and character, with exposed beams and inglenook fireplaces, and holds a lovely sunny position ensuring all the principal rooms are light and cheerful. The front door leads into the entrance hall, off which is the cloakroom and boiler room. From here a door leads through to the trio of reception rooms. The formal drawing room is double aspect with a pretty brick fireplace and heavily timbered ceiling. Next door is the family sitting room, an equally fine room with a wide and deep inglenook fireplace with large wood-burning stove; beyond is the dining room, a welcoming yet intimate room for entertaining.The kitchen adjoins and is a wonderfully relaxed and informal entertaining space with handmade kitchen units with granite work surface over; a four oven Aga with additional gas hob sits within a tiled recess and a central island unit, with second sink and electric oven, wraps around two exposed brick piers to form a focal point to the room. The conservatory style breakfast area provides ample space for a sofa, large table and chairs.On the first floor, the master bedroom and en-suite bathroom are situated at the end of a hallway that services the four bedrooms and family bathroom. A further flight of stairs leads to the second floor, where the study, fifth bedroom and a large storage area are located.Little Bossington Farm House is approached over a short driveway, which terminates in a large parking and turning area to the side of the house. A timber-framed carport and adjoining log store are at right angles to the drive. At the head of the drive is the detached annexe - this comprises two ground floor rooms with WC, water supply and heating boiler and a large open plan space on the first floor.The gardens are a delight! Colourful beds surround the house and steps lead up the bank past two ponds to a lightly wooded area leading through to the swimming pool. There is a large and useful raised summer house with a wide veranda on all sides, and the upper garden, with raised vegetable beds and fruit trees, has lovely views over adjoining farmland. The paddock has an entrance from the garden and a separate gated entrance from the lane.
