General information Offering a real sense of history throughout and in need of some sympathetic modernisation within certain parts, to the ground floor the property consists of three reception rooms, further storeroom/garden room, spacious galley kitchen and rear lobby. The second floor provides three double bedrooms all of which run off the spacious landing. Furthermore, there is a generous sized family bathroom.
To the ground floor the traditional matt black front door provides access to both the dining room and the adjacent sitting room both of which provide charming Inglenook fireplaces/wood burning stoves and stunning original wood beams. Offset is the well-equipped spacious galley kitchen (leading to the rear lobby) offering tiled flooring, range of base level and eye level units, work-surfaces, oven as well as space and plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher. Again, accessed via the kitchen is the former post office (of which there is a secondary front door at street level), which could easily become the third reception room with its beautiful original wood beams and impressive proportions. Directly behind this is the connected storeroom, which with its position overlooking the courtyard would make the perfect garden room.
The first floor provides three double bedrooms (with the master providing original wood beams) all positioned off the spacious landing. There is also a generous sized, soothingly decorated bathroom to rear with three-piece suite including panel enclosed bath, low level WC and wash hand basin.
