A five bedroom Victorian house in Ousden with gardens of an acre is on the market with Jackson-Sale and Stops for £935,000.

Originally a pair of semi-detached cottages built in 1878, the property was rebuilt in 1979 into one large barn house with additional land purchased from the neighbouring Wills’ Estate.

It boasts four reception rooms, a hard tennis court, 36 photo-voltaic panels on the roof which generate electricity and a barn with storage and garaging. All windows and external doors were custom built and double glazed in 2008.

The drawing and sitting rooms both have FrancoBelge Savoy Classic multi-fuel stoves. The drawing room is connected to a porch and patio while the sitting room has sliding doors to the garden and kitchen, which comes with a walk-in pantry, slate worktops, double gas oven and hob and a water softener. The dining room is south facing with solid oak floor.

On the first floor galleried landing, there is entry to an octagonal tower with views in all directions via a trapdoor and metal loft ladder.

A master en-suite bedroom with dressing room, four more bedrooms with built-in cupboards or wardrobes and a family bathroom with a bath and shower cubicle complete the floor.

There are a variety of mature trees and shrubs, a small pond, large wooden compost bin, three separate patios and a tennis court in the gardens. It has panoramic views across the countryside.
