Purchased by our vendors 8 years ago as a project they have since put countless hours into creating the spacious and comfortable period family home it is today. Work carried out to a high standard included but was not limited to rewiring, replumbing, improving the layout, redecoration, new kitchen and bathrooms, and landscaping the garden. With an eye for design and attention to detail throughout, they have created something quite special for the next owners to enjoy. Accommodation is laid out over three floors with many original features retained throughout such as fireplaces, high ceilings, doors, stripped wooden floors and bannisters. Entering the ground floor into the hall there is plenty of space for coats and shoes. The large kitchen, dining and sitting rooms are all open to each other forming an ‘L’ shape whilst retaining a distinct identity and the right degree of separation, ideal for social family living. The traditional style blue kitchen units have wooden tops with a double Butler style ceramic sink, and space for a six-ring range cooker and freestanding fridge/freezer. Stripped wooden floors extend to the dining room where there is a wood burning stove in the exposed brick chimney and large bay window. The sitting room is a step down from the dining area with a dual aspect and wooden flooring. Off the kitchen is the utility room with further storage and space for a washing machine, which leads on to a beautifully appointed shower room.
The first floor has two spacious bedrooms, both with bay windows, with space on the landing for furniture. The large family bathroom has a luxurious free-standing double ended roll top bath, stripped wooden flooring and useful storage cupboard. On the second floor there are three bedrooms, with potential to have a further shower room installed on the landing if needed. Two bedrooms are good size doubles, one currently in use as a home office with far reaching views over the surrounding area to the countryside, and one with a large eaves storage area. There is a large loft space giving potential to create further accommodation if required, subject to the necessary consents.
Benefitting from a high degree of privacy the plot is securely surrounded by fencing and walling, with large double gates providing access to the parking area and double garage, with further parking always available in front of the gates. The front garden is laid with shingle with a paved path to the front door and space for bin storage. The south facing rear garden has been landscaped with a large paved terrace adjoining the house, ideal for entertaining and alfresco dining on sunny days. The level lawn is surrounded by beds with a productive grape vine trailing the fence. Steps lead to the parking area and double garage. This area offers potential for further development subject to planning permission.
