Approach
Callow Stocking is accessed via a private track that winds its way through woodlands and the surrounding farmland, leading to its secluded and extremely private location, enveloped by the breathtaking countryside.
You arrive at the property via a gravel driveway bordered by mature trees to the left and a wonderful mature orchard to the right which contains approx. 24 fruit trees, including apple, pear, cherry and ginkgo.


Entrance
You enter the property through an oak-framed open porch, with a tiled roof and quarry tile floor. Upon entering the hallway, directly to the right is a cloakroom followed by the spacious utility room, which was previously the kitchen and is the oldest part of the house.


Utility room
The utility room features a door leading to the rear garden and is equipped with practical kitchen units, a sink with a drainer and ample space for a washing machine, complimented by ceramic tiled flooring.


Dining room
From the hallway, you step into a well-proportioned dining room adorned with double French doors that provide access to the block-paved patio area behind the property.

Additionally, a large bay window offers views of the garden on the side and stairs leading up to the first-floor accommodation from here. An inviting open fireplace, featuring an oak beam mantle and brick surround, serves as a cosy focal point in this delightful space.


Living room
Double internal doors open into the living room, showcasing a striking log-burning stove framed by an oak beam mantle and a brick surround. The stove is beautifully complemented by large-format quarry tiles.

French doors provide access to the block-paved courtyard area, situated right next to the house. This fantastic lounge boasts a triple-aspect design, offering splendid views of all three sides of the garden.


Office
To the left of the dining room, there is an inner hallway that leads to a generously sized, double-aspect home office. From here there is also a cupboard housing the boiler and controls for the underfloor heating system.


Kitchen/dining/living room
Beyond the hallway lies a stunning kitchen/dining/living room space, which truly serves as the centrepiece of this remarkable property.


Kitchen
Completed in 2014, this magnificent kitchen is a true culinary delight, featuring a large peninsular island, an extensive array of elegant Shaker-style cabinets in off-white Alabaster and is equipped with a Rangemaster Classic 110 induction range cooker with an extraction fan.

Beautiful granite countertops complement the aesthetic, along with a 1 1/2 bowl kitchen sink featuring a mixer tap, a built-in dishwasher and a built-in tall fridge/freezer.


Dining/living room
This expansive open-plan space seamlessly flows into the vaulted open-plan dining and living area, well-lit by an abundance of glass windows, doors, fixed glass panes and Velux windows, all framed by stunning oak beams.
This design provides panoramic views from three sides and a tri-fold door leads out to the block-paved patio area, overlooking the ornamental pond.

At the far end of the living space, you'll find a striking contemporary log-burning stove. Enhancing the entire kitchen/dining/living area is the exquisite oak-engineered flooring with underfloor heating. Towards the rear of the living space, you'll discover a convenient downstairs cloakroom.


Master bedroom
Ascending the stairs from the large dining hallway, you'll reach the first-floor accommodation. Immediately to the left of the landing, is the spacious master bedroom, complete with its own en suite bathroom.

Bedroom three
Continuing down the hallway into the original part of the house is a good-sized double bedroom with lovely views over the front of the property and the surrounding countryside and fields. Both this room and bedroom four benefit from charming original features, including the retained exposed oak frame from the original cottage.


Bedroom four
At the end of the landing is another bedroom with double-aspect windows that capture views of the front of the property, the surrounding fields, as well as the beautiful rear garden.


Garden
Outside the property stands a detached brick-built double garage, complete with lighting and power. Additionally, there's a large wooden workshop, perfect for storing logs, garden furniture or machinery.

Situated between the garage and the main house, a garden gate grants access to the wonderful mature garden which surrounds the property.
