The Old House is a charming period house which was
formally a farm thought to date back to the 17th Century with later additions.
Constructed of ironstone under a pitched part thatched and tiled roof, the house successfully combines numerous traditional features with contemporary convenience for modern day living.
Retaining many period features including inglenook fire places, window seats and exposed timbers, The Old House offers charming accommodation for families and entertaining.
In excellent order throughout, from the front door is a drawing room, with inglenook fireplace and an open fire, wooden floors and exposed beams. Accessed from the rear of the sitting room is the conservatory which provides a relaxing place to unwind with views over the garden. The dining room leads into the kitchen which has an abundance of charm with wooden floors, exposed beams, a window seat and an inglenook fireplace with a log burner. A Falcon cooker with a double oven grill and a five ring burner and extractor hood sits centrally and the kitchen is fitted with a bespoke hand made installation made by a local craftsman with granite work surfaces. Beyond the kitchen is a well appointed larder and utility room, and beyond this a study.
On the first floor is the principle bedroom with a raised pitched roof giving a feeling of light and space, en-suite bathroom and a walk in wardrobe. There is a further double bedroom and separate shower room on this floor. An additional bedroom with en-suite shower room is accessed by a separate staircase by the study.
Externally there is ample parking for several cars and a barn which has lapsed planning consent to be converted into a single storey studio with a mezzanine floor (Ref: 12/01001/F), which is currently used as a garage offering good storage. There are raised beds for vegetables and a well established walled garden, mainly laid to lawn with pretty borders and beds and mature apple, plum, and damson trees. There is a paved area outside the conservatory and kitchen which is ideal for entertaining and at the back of the garden is a small raised summerhouse with a power supply. In addition there is a large woodshed on the track on the approach to the property which could be reinstated as a garden store with access from the rear of the garden.View payable Stamp Duty for this property
