Porton House is a substantial detached village residence offering flexible family accommodation and an Annexe initially designed to facilitate a self-contained office/business. The property is accessed off the village road via a gated drive to a large courtyard with excellent parking and a large garage. The garden is a generous size accessible off the drive, is laid mainly to lawn with a variety of mature shrubs and trees; there is also a large timber garden shed/outbuilding.

We understand that the original portion of Porton House dates from around the 1850's and has been a family home, the village post office, the village shop and more recently has been reinstated as a family home; the extensive cellar was formally utilised by a commercial wine merchant and is accessible via a trapdoor and staircase. The property was extended in the late 1940's creating what is now the study and utility room; in 2006 an old barn structure was removed from the rear and replaced with a farmhouse kitchen with vaulted ceiling, which links to the Annexe, designed with separate external access to a self-contained office and store room upstairs, with hall, shower room and garage/workshop downstairs. Also in 2006 the entire property drainage system was renewed and connected to the mains.

The accommodation presently comprises at least 4 bedrooms and 5 reception rooms (one or more of these would work as bedrooms), 2 shower rooms and a family bathroom and a large welcoming main reception hall. The two-storey Annexe (highlighted in yellow on the floor plan) with its large hall, own external access, ground floor shower room and garage downstairs with study/landing and bedroom/playroom/studio upstairs could readily be converted into additional self-contained domestic accommodation. In addition, there is a very useful utility room and a large cellar of about 21'10” x 9'4” with natural light, power and light and extensive wine racking.

Porton House is centrally heated via a mains gas fired boiler to radiators, is double glazed, has solar panels generating up to 3.9 kW and is offered for sale with immediate vacant possession.
