General information This delightful 3 bedroom property has been extensively modernised whilst restoring the original characterful features, providing a pleasant and cosy feel throughout. An early viewing is highly recommended.

The front door opens into the traditional Victorian style sitting room which has a double glazed window, overlooking the front garden and an exposed original feature fireplace, with a brick hearth and surround. This feature has been sympathetically stripped back to highlight the charm of the property, and the current owners have installed a wood burner here. The original parquet flooring in a herringbone style combines beautifully with floor mounted column radiators, and a door leads to the stairs rising to the first floor.

Just off the living room a door leads into the kitchen which has brick laid flooring throughout and has been fitted with a variety of eye level and base units, with oak worktops over, and space for an electric cooker. The current owners have upheld the traditional approach and fitted bespoke distressed, farmhouse style units, hand made by local cabinet makers Ashford & Brooks. A storage cupboard provides a great pantry space and there is a butler sink and drainer just below a window looking through to the dining room.

The dining room has a vaulted ceiling with two skylights to both sides and a door onto the side passage and garden beyond. The brick laid flooring is continued through here and there is a further cupboard providing excellent storage. There is also a column radiator in this room too.

Off the dining room is a door through to the utility which houses the majority of the white goods and appliances. Beneath an oak worktop is space, electric and plumbing for a washing machine, dishwasher and tumble dryer and there is further space and electric for an upright fridge freezer. The utility also houses the boiler for the oil fired central heating, which was installed by the current owners in 2019. There is also a butler sink with mixer tap and a Victorian style pulley drying rack. From the utility is a loft access, which offers some storage space.

The utility leads into a rear hallway which gives access to the downstairs bathroom, which has been fitted with a claw foot, roll top bath, a separate shower cubicle, a wash hand basin and high level wc.

Bedroom two is located at the rear of the property and is a double room with a dual aspect that has a double glazed window to the side and double doors onto a decking area, which gives access to the garden and the beautiful countryside views beyond.

Offering such flexible accommodation, the second bedroom, bathroom, utility and dining room could be used to serve as a separate annexe, converting the utility room into a kitchen and the dining room into a living area. The main house would remain to be served by the kitchen and living room, with two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs.

The first floor comprises two bedrooms and the second family bathroom. Bedroom one has a front aspect with a double glazed window looking to the front garden. There are two cupboards providing further storage space and polished wooden floorboards. Bedroom three has a window to the rear aspect and also benefits from storage space and exposed floorboards with an internal window to the landing. The second bathroom has been fitted with a wash hand basin, a low level wc and a panelled bath with a wall mounted shower over and a wall mounted column towel radiator.

Outside The property is approached by a pathway over the front garden which is mostly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and bushes.

The rear garden is also mostly laid to lawn and is enclosed by fencing on both sides. As well as the decking area at the top of the garden, there is a second seating area at the rear of the garden which offers a great space to sit and enjoy the far reaching views over the fields beyond. The oil tank is housed in the rear garden but carefully hidden behind fencing and trailing shrubs and plants, and there is also two external plug sockets.

The property provides off road parking for 3 cars, and access to this is provided by a path that runs from the rear garden behind the neighbouring property's garden, and this is included under the same freehold title as the main house. This parking can be accessed from the main highway across the neighbours driveway, the current owners have a right of way across this neighbouring property.
