Winding high hedged lanes take you to the hamlet of Fennington where secure double gates open to the parking area at the front of Dustings. Step in through the big double doors to the wide hallway; it's all been brought right into the 21st century with solid oak doors, window frames and timbers. There’s pine flooring throughout the ground floor and beneath it is a cosy heating system that can be controlled individually in each room. Upstairs is fully carpeted, with the practical exception of the bathrooms.
Off to the right is Bedroom 2, with zip and link beds that can be arranged as a superking or twins; a door leads to the en suite shower room which can also be accessed from the hall.
At the end of the hallway is the large kitchen/dining room with high open rafters; a sturdy table seats 16 – perfect for everyone to gather round for happy mealtimes and celebrations. This room is super sociable – get you all ensemble, drinks in hand, nibbles on the central island, then cook and chat, have a dance, do some singing; no need for anyone to be left out slaving over a hot stove! French doors open onto the patio where you can sit out in the hot tub, have a barbecue or an elegant afternoon tea.
The farmhouse style kitchen is very well equipped with a 4 oven oil fired Aga, but if that’s not your thing you can cook on the double oven electric range instead. No need to worry about the washing up, just load the two dishwashers, set them to work and go off and put your feet up.
Off the kitchen there’s a utility room with a sink, 2 washing machines and 2 tumble dryers. This room is perfect for when you’ve been for a tramp across the fields and you come back with muddy boots and paws, and it’s nice and warm for dogs to sleep in.
Off the dining area is the cinema room where you can snuggle up of an evening or on a rainy afternoon and watch a movie on the big screen; doors open onto the garden if you need to pop out for a breath of fresh air.
Upstairs is the part-galleried games room, overlooking the kitchen to one end, and to the front are views of the wide open fields and the Blackdown Hills beyond. This is an awesome place to hang out and have a game of pool or table football, or to settle down on the sofas and watch TV.
On from the games room is the sitting room/library, a quiet room for contemplation, a chat or somewhere to curl up and get your head in a good novel. Next to this is Bedroom 1, a spacious room that can sleep 4 people, with beds arranged as a superking and two singles, or as four singles. It's a great room for a family, or for four good friends, plus it has a good sized en suite shower room.
Back downstairs in the hallway there are 4 more bedrooms off to the right; most have plenty of space for hanging clothes and are bright and airy with views over the open countryside. Bedroom 3 has zip and link beds and Bedroom 4 has a kingsize bed and a single; between them is a shared bathroom with a big corner bath and an overhead shower, accessed from both rooms. Bedroom 5 has a kingsize bed and a single, and Bedroom 6 has zip and link beds; these rooms both share a wet room.
To the front of the house is the walled garden which leads round to the patio outside of the kitchen; there’s a lawn for the young ‘uns to run about on and play equipment for them to clamber on, so they’ll be happy. You’ll all be happy.
