This delightful property offers well-proportioned rooms throughout with the downstairs comprising a kitchen, dining room and sitting room, both with woodburning stoves, utility room and cloakroom. Upstairs there are four double bedrooms, two family bathrooms with free standing roll top baths and hand-held showers.  The gravel drive provides plenty of room for parking, approached off the road leading into the village.  The pretty wrap-around garden is planted with mature trees and shrubs and the majority is laid to lawn.  There is a summer house in the far rear corner with raised beds each side.   

The interior of Langar House has an abundance of character features, including beams, exposed brick and flint walls, flagstone flooring throughout the ground floor and inglenook fireplaces and woodburning stoves in both the sitting room and dining room. The accommodation flows well, with French doors from the garden path leading into the spacious entrance hall, and into the kitchen. The entrance has a wonderful feeling of space with high ceilings and light floods through the windows and French doors into the open-plan kitchen and dining room.  A magnificent distressed pine dresser enhances the entrance as well as providing useful storage.  The cloakroom and utility room lead directly off the entrance. The cloakroom has a hand wash basin and loo, while the utility room is equipped with a butler sink, wooden worktops and plumbing on either side of the sink for a washing machine and tumble dryer. 

The kitchen has built-in wooden kitchen units, a butler sink, wooden worktops, a Kenwood range cooker and recessed spaces for a dishwasher and fridge freezer.  Also included are two distressed pine cupboards and central island unit with shelving underneath.  The front door leads out to the garden from the kitchen and windows overlook the side of the garden.  

The dining room leads off the kitchen and has a huge inglenook fireplace and a woodburning stove.  There is plenty of room for a good size dining table and the light comes through from a window overlooking the garden and a pretty glass and pine door leading back through to the entrance hall.    

The sitting room is a generous size, full of character with plenty of space for comfortable sofas and features an inglenook fireplace with exposed brickwork, that houses a woodburning stove. There are windows to the side and front, with wonderful views over the garden.   

The main staircase, between the dining room and kitchen leads up to the first floor landing, running the full length of the cottage with recessed book shelves, off which are four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The first bedroom on the left at the top of the stairs has dual aspect commanding lovely views over the front and side of the garden, a built-in wardrobe and wonderful exposed beams up to the ceiling. Steps from the landing lead down into the bathroom, which has a roll top bath, hand-held shower, hand wash basin and loo. Bedroom Two to the right of the staircase is another double bedroom with wooden panelling, a built in wardrobe and wonderful views over the front garden.  The second bathroom lies in between the second and third bedroom, with a rolltop bath and hand-held shower, hand wash basin and loo.  Bedroom Three is another pretty room overlooking the front garden with an in-built wardrobe.  Bedroom Four at the end of the landing is currently used as an office and has a window facing the rear garden.  


Langar House is accessed from an enclosed gravelled driveway, which provides plenty of parking and passes through a gate into the wrap-around garden.   A gravel path surrounds the house and leads to the front and back doors.  The front garden is primarily lawn with mature shrubs and trees and a landscaped rockery.    

The rear garden is also laid to lawn and with a path leading to the French doors into the entrance hall.  In the far corner there is a summer house, which may be used to store garden furniture or to enjoy the winter sun during the colder months.  The walk down from the summer house is bordered either side by raised flower beds filled with mature plants and flowers.
