Located within a Conservation area, Pilton House dates back to the early 15th century and has been much updated in its 500-year history. The property has been carefully maintained and altered by its current owners and hasn’t been on the open market for at least forty years.
Original period features combine with conveniences for modern living; surrounded by beautiful grounds it’s a perfect country retreat.
The accommodation is spacious and flexible with the main reception hall, sitting room and dining room all benefitting from features including inglenook fireplaces, timber panelling and traditional window casings. The garden room/drawing room was built in 1996 and has a stone fireplace and a stone hearth and spectacular views across the croquet lawn while the kitchen/breakfast room is ‘Smallbone style.’
Upstairs the house has a galleried landing and five bedrooms (the main bedroom is en suite) plus a family bathroom.
