Temple House which was built in 1835 is situated on the south western edge of the village and has an enviable location, its mature south and west facing gardens have wonderful views over open countryside to the rear. The house is accessed from the village road with gate pillars leading to the courtyard which is framed by Temple House Cottage, the stables, party barn and garaging. In the main house the front door leads to an impressive entrance hall with Flagstone floors which leads all the way from the front to the rear and forms the spine of the house. From the hall, doors lead to the south facing drawing room and sitting room with elegant sash windows, moulded ceilings and open fireplaces. The current owners have thoughtfully altered the interior layout to create the ideal accommodation for a family with the kitchen/breakfast room at the heart of the house leading to the dining room and playroom with the rear section of the hall accessing the cellars, cloakroom and utility rooms. On the first and second floors the bedrooms and bathrooms are accessed by way of long landings flooded with light from the south facing arched window.Temple House Cottage is located to the north of the courtyard and bounded by the village road. It is a spacious cottage with three bedrooms providing useful secondary accommodation or an income through letting. With a good reception room and an open plan kitchen/dining room on the ground floor together with three bedrooms and two bathrooms the cottage is thoughtfully laid out. Outbuildings to the east and south framing the courtyard there are a range of loose boxes with a tack room and a feed store, an open carport and a large games/party room with picturewindows and decking overlooking the gardens and paddocks.
The gardens to Temple House surround the house on three sides and face predominantly south and west, including lawns, flower beds interspersed with mature trees and shrubs with views over the houses railed paddocks and open countryside beyond. To the north of the house is a productive orchard shielding the house from the village lane. The current owners have also created a sunny terrace accessed from the drawing room, which is shaded by a tree to the south and the house to the east getting the late afternoon sun. Below the gardens is an enclosed tennis court (in need of resurfacing) with railed and watered paddocks beyond.
