This is an attractive and deceptively spacious detached character property originally built in 1872 as two cottages, converted into one in 1976 and further extended in 1996. The property still retains much of the original charm and character with a cottage feel throughout and has also been the subject of sympathetic refurbishment by the current owners and consequently is beautifully presented and furnished to a high standard throughout. With four granite fireplaces (three of which have multi-fuel or wood burning stoves) and a four-oven Aga, the property offers:- 7 bedrooms (five currently used for letting purposes), 4 bath/shower rooms, owner’s private sitting room, residents lounge, dining room, conservatory sun room/breakfast room, entrance conservatory/boot room, reception hall, large kitchen, utility room and downstairs WC. All bedrooms and bathrooms are on the first floor, accessed from two separate staircases. Externally, the property stands in grounds which extend to around 6 acres which include 2 hay meadows and a paddock with stables. The grounds also incorporate car parking for 10+ vehicles, attractive lawned gardens interspersed with mature shrubs, flowers and trees, a vegetable garden, herb garden area, greenhouse, chicken coop and run and wooden storage shed. There is also a useful range of outbuildings and a single garage.
