This well presented and sympathetically extended Grade II Listed family house extends to about 2620 sqft (including the studio/home office) and is believed to date from the mid 16th Century. It is constructed of rendered elevations under a pitch tiled roof and with a flat roof rear extension. The current owners undertook significant consented works, including replastering and insulation of the south and west and east elevations.
The spacious and well laid out accommodation has an entrance hall, sitting room with French doors to the rear garden and large fireplace with wood burner. The dining room has partial open studwork to the kitchen and an Inglenook fireplace with bressummer and Jotul wood burning stove. The kitchen has a good range of units and a concealed Grant oil fired boiler. The rear hall gives access to the second staircase and the living room overlooking the rear garden. There is a utility room and a ground floor shower room. On the first floor are four double bedrooms and a bathroom each independently accessed from two landings. The main bedroom has a separate cloakroom area.
Adjacent to the property is a large double doored garage with light and power and doors giving vehicular access to the rear garden. There is a high quality studio/home office with power, broadband connection and sound and heat insulation. To the front of the property is a gravelled parking area adjacent to the garage. The rear garden is laid mainly to lawn with two useful garden sheds, a small pond, mature fruit trees including plum, apple, cherry and damson and several mature trees. There is a terrace to the rear of the house and a concealed oil tank.
