Vendor's thoughts: "We purchased our house in 2011 to modernise and re-organise to suit our family needs. The home we have created is spacious and designed to meet a variety of purposes. Tarlton is a lovely village, it is a quiet haven, and is in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty and a conservation area. There are numerous walks in and around the village to suit all capabilities. There is even a pub within walking distance just outside the village. The night time noise comes from a variety of wildlife; owls, hedgehogs, pheasants, foxes to name but a few. On chilly winter days it is lovely to sit in front of a roaring log fire and relax. During the summer it is wonderful to dine outside or if it’s a particularly hot day sit under the shade of the fruit trees in the orchard."

In a nutshell: A superb versatile contemporary home in a fabulous village.
