Dating back to the early 1800s, this much-loved home sits in a private plot approaching 1.5 acres and sits in a glorious countryside setting adjacent to local woodland and open fields. The property has been maintained to a good order and retains many of the original period features throughout including exposed beams, exposed stonework, wooden latch doors and impressive fireplaces whilst benefiting from modern conveniences such as double glazing and oil-fired central heating. The property is versatile in its accommodation and is designed so that it could accommodate dual occupation with two entrances and two staircases or can equally be used as one family house. The ground floor accommodation includes a kitchen with breakfast bar seating area and a generous dining room that leads into a spacious sitting room. An inner hallway leads to a ground floor WC and a 2nd kitchen (if using as dual occupancy house) which is currently
being used as a study. Stairs lead up to a half landing where there is a generous sitting room overlooking the gardens (or could be an additional bedroom). The first floor there are four further double bedrooms, a bathroom and a master bedroom with generous ensuite bathroom.
