    About this property

    • A wonderful five bedroom family house in the heart of this sought after village. The Old Laundry, formerly ‘The Barton', is a historic Grade II Listed house that is thought to be originally part of the Grittleton House estate. Dating originally from 17th century, this beautiful three storey house is rubble stone built with a stone tile roof and 20th century additions at each end. A central gabled ashlar porch provides attractive symmetry and a welcoming entrance.

      The porch opens in to a wonderful sitting room with exposed wooden beam ceiling and a large stone fireplace with wood-burning stove. Stone mullion windows, wood skirting and architraves add to the aesthetic of this marvellous historic house. Adjacent is the dining room with wooden floors and an oversized inglenook fireplace with inset stove. To the rear of the ground floor are a collection of superb entertaining rooms, including a snug, playroom/study and conservatory, all of which enjoy excellent proportions and pretty views of the rear garden. The large family kitchen is located to the side of the house, with garden views and a lovely vista of Grittleton House next door. The ground floor is completed by a boot room and downstairs WC, and side door access to the garden.

      The bedroom accommodation is split over the first and second floors. The principal bedroom has its own original spiral staircase accessed from the sitting room as well as significant built in storage and a large en suite bathroom. Two further bedrooms on the first floor are serviced by a family bathroom and a second staircase leading from the ground floor snug. The second floor provides two further bedrooms, both with built in storage and a comfortable shower room.

Attached to the side of the house is a large double garage with vaulted ceilings and rear access to the garden.
