Take the private drive, flanked by lush greenery and lined with trees and spring bulbs, and pull round to the front of the home where there is an abundance of parking on the gravel driveway.

Noble and a little bit special from the start Sellet Hall has quite the impact, softened and fixed in the natural and secluded countryside surroundings.

Enter the home through the open porchway and travel down the long hallway, turning left into the drawing room. Be suitably impressed by the most splendid, exposed stone fireplace with flagstone hearth and period stone mullion windows that add character and charm to this dual aspect room. Comfortable and homely the drawing room makes for the ideal cosy spot to read by the wood burner but also lovely to gather and simply watch the TV together.

Continue across the hallway and into the dining room, nicely situated centrally in the home crafting an effortless entertaining space the flows naturally from room to room. Celebrations of all kinds can be imagined in here, fire lit on the flagged hearth filling the room with a soft glow and the table, with ample room for ten, overflowing with wine and a sumptuous meal.

The large kitchen is the true heart of the house, with a comfy seating nook creating a cohesive area to chat and cook together. Upper and lower cabinetry hide integrated appliances, complete with fridge, freezer, two dishwashers, microwave, a pantry cupboard and heaps of storage for all the essentials.
