A rarely available early 17th century Grade II listed four-bedroom detached family home with a detached one-bedroom annexe/studio set within the picturesque Thorncombe Valley. Beautifully presented, exuding charm and character, whilst benefiting from the latest technology. Set in an elevated position and enjoying
wonderful landscape views. In all 0.85 acres.

Raggetts is a charming Grade II Listed cottage with 17th-century origins and later 19th extensions. A former three-bay house, the timber frame is beautifully preserved and visible throughout, interspersed with whitewashed brick infill and plain tiled roof above.

Internally the cottage has a great deal of character with wonderful oak beams, fine open fireplaces, and natural stone and walnut planked flooring. Of particular note are the Gothic-style arched head tracery bar windows. With many rooms enjoying dual aspects this wonderful home is light and airy.

A pitched oak framed entrance porch gives access through a solid oak and galetted front door into the main reception hallway. Leading from the hallway is a generous-sized drawing room which is centred by a stunning inglenook fireplace with an open hearth and studded cast iron hood, side bench seats, and cast-iron hanging pot stands are a reminder of this historic home. To one side is a charming nook and door to the terrace. Discreetly hidden behind an original oak door is a comms cabinet for hosting the home entertainment system and a connection point for the built-in speaker system that runs throughout the house. Gothic-style windows look out to the front and side gardens whilst a set of arched wooden doors lead to the rear garden loggia. A study is accessed at the end of the drawing room.

It is often said the hub of the home and one of the most important rooms in which to gather and share in family life is the kitchen. The kitchen/dining room at Raggetts offers that opportunity in abundance. A rich opulent interior design with navy blue & pale grey shaker style units are arranged in a U-shape, with a mix of eye-level glass display cabinets and open front plate racks and shelves, which are cleverly lit by a range of LED lighting schemes. The large central island and breakfast bar also have decorative LED lighting tucked just under the oak work surface. The under-surface lighting along with the plinth lighting, offers a warm and subtle lighting scheme. Recessed into the chimney breasts is a range-style double oven with a five-ring ceramic hob with a griddle. A wine cooler, fitted dishwasher, bespoke larder and a space for an American-style fridge freezer all complement this modern and luxurious kitchen. Towards the far end of the kitchen is ample space for a farmhouse dining table with a wonderful outlook across to the rear gardens, along with a set of gothic styled arched wooden patio doors to the terrace.

The first-floor accommodation is equally impressive. The principal bedroom suite enjoys a vaulted ceiling, a bright and sunny dual aspect from the Gothic style windows, and benefits from an en-suite shower room. Three further bedrooms and a family bathroom complete this wonderful family home.

The extensive gardens at Raggetts are simply stunning. Approached via an automated set of double gates the driveway provides ample parking. A three-bay (two open and one closed)
hand crafted oak barn provides ancillary accommodation, additional parking and storage options. This charming Oak framed garage block also plays host, above the parking area, to a studio room. The entrance from a side door brings you into a study or potential kitchen area, with an internal staircase leading to the studio. Adjacent to the entrance door to the barn is a second external door that accesses a shower room and WC facilities. This could be amended to provide internal access if one wished.

The front gardens are screened from the lane by mature trees and hedging, with brick-paved pathways running around the house and leading to the rear garden. The rear garden is arranged into three areas, closest to the kitchen and garden terrace is a hidden lawn area enclosed by shaped yew hedging. Towards the rear of this magical secret garden is a large Cornish moonstone that is carefully aligned to cast amazing shadows from the sun but also from the moonlight. The second section of the garden has wellstocked flower bed borders, several specimen trees, and a mature Japanese Acer. The third and final part of the garden is an expansive lawn area that gently slopes upwards. At the high point, you are greeted with some wonderful landscape views over the adjoining farmland and hillsides beyond.

A large timber outbuilding provides ample space for garden machinery and a workshop. However, if enjoying a glass of something special whilst partaking in alfresco dining is more your style, then an octagon shaped breeze house that sits in an elevated position and is aligned to benefit from the westerly sunny aspect is just perfect. In all 0.85 acres.
