Part of our Signature collection, this unique and charming Grade II Listed three bed semi-detached home is set within the grounds of Vernons. Situated in a peaceful and elevated position, it offers picturesque views towards the Colne Valley. The old outbuilding has been beautiful restored and rebuilt to create a tastefully finished annexe offering flexible accommodation.

The entrance door opens into a porch at the front of the property with a doorway leading into the hall and a stair flight rising to the first floor with an understairs cupboard.

The property boasts two reception rooms which flow seamlessly from one to the other. The light and spacious lounge has two windows to the side aspect, a door leading out to the established courtyard and a log burner with oak mantle for those cosy evenings. There is a step down into the dining room which has two windows to the rear, a log burner with oak mantle and a door to the kitchen.

The kitchen has a range of matching base and eye level units, worktops with tiled splashbacks and an inset one and a half bowl stainless steel drainer. Integrated appliances include a fridge freezer, electric cooker with hob and extractor over and a dishwasher. There is a utility which has additional cupboards and houses the oil fired boiler with doors leading to the courtyard and providing access to the cloakroom.

On the first floor, the primary bedroom is a large double with three sash windows to the rear aspect and fitted shutters with two separate storage cupboards and the airing cupboard. Bedroom two has dual aspect with sash windows to the side and rear of the property, a built-in wardrobe, and a picture rail. The third bedroom has a sash window to the side aspect and a picture rail.

The family bathroom has been thoughtfully refitted and benefits from a bath with a stylish matte black mixer tap, a walk-in shower with waterfall shower head and framed glass screen, a circular wash hand basin on top of a vanity unit and low level wc. There is a black heated towel rail, tiled flooring with electric underfloor heating and an obscured sash window.

Annexe
The annexe has been fully restored and carefully rebuilt to create the impressive space it is today. Finished to the highest of standards, there are two sets of black framed bi-folding doors opening out to the immaculately kept garden. There is tiled flooring throughout with underfloor heating, four Velux windows, exposed and restored original beams, a stable door to the front, and a Bronpi four-sided stove, perfectly tailored for expansive open-plan areas.

The kitchen has been tastefully fitted with dark sage shaker style units and oak worktops, with an inset butler sink and black mixer tap. A corner cupboard houses the LPG gas fired Glow-worm boiler, and there is a breakfast bar with additional seating.

The bathroom has been exquisitely finished and benefits from a panelled bath with brass mixer tap, a walk-in shower with brass controls and shower head, a low level wc and wash basin. There is an exposed beam, black heated towel rail, extractor fan, sliding wall mounted door, and a double glazed, obscured sash window.

Outside
At the rear of Vernons Wing, the established south facing courtyard garden has a patio with a path leading to the utility room door, raised flower beds and a selection of plants and flowers. There is a shingled area for additional pots or seating all enclosed by fencing and hedgerow. A separate brick outbuilding is perfect for storage and the oil tank is set behind it.

The generous well-maintained garden at the rear of the annexe is mainly laid to lawn with raised sleeper flowerbeds boasting an array of established bushes, plants, trees and shrubs. The large patio provides ample space for entertaining with a sheltered area and power socket. To the side of the annexe is space for additional parking and storage, a shed which is to remain and access to the separate bio-efficient septic tank. At the bottom of the garden is a low hedgerow with picturesque views over neighbouring fields and countryside beyond.

There is allocated off-road tandem parking to the side of the property, two spaces in front of the annexe on the block paved area and an additional space within the double gates of the garden at the annexe. The property is set within the grounds of Vernons with a communal in and out driveway.
