About this property

  • This detached family home dates back to the 1700s featuring impressive exposed beams throughout, brick fireplaces and antique panelled doors. The house has been well maintained and offers a wealth of original character. The rooms are well proportioned and there is great scope to extend in multiple directions. On the South-West aspect there is currently a conservatory in need of renovation and a York stone patio with excellent views. The house benefits from about 4.18 acres of land and a sizable brick outbuilding with lean-to storage. There is good potential to convert this for additional accommodation (subject to obtaining necessary consents). The house, outbuilding and land are served by a wide driveway with parking for numerous vehicles with additional access from Mark Lane.

    The main house is about 2614 sq ft with the accommodation arranged over three floors, plus a cellar. On the ground floor, the house can be entered via garden doors or from the drive via an internal porch, encompassing a cloakroom/WC and adjoining laundry space, leading on to the kitchen. This has an original AGA and space for a table for informal family meals. A walk-through pantry/utility and hallway both lead to the main reception room, this is a 30ft triple aspect sitting/dining area with a log burner and an excellent Baxi multifuel hearth situated in impressive brick surrounds at each end. The central room is South-West facing and enjoys natural light.

    On the first floor there are two large bedrooms with far reaching views, one with a hand basin and a generous double bedroom with similar vintage basin and an attractive cast iron fireplace. There is a family bathroom on this floor and additional bathroom upstairs. A landing on the second floor leads to a further two double bedrooms in the eaves.

    The property is set within about 4.18 acres of land, comprising of paddocks, lawns, herbaceous borders and shrubbery with well established trees throughout, many bearing fruit. There are a number of useful outbuildings, including log storage, poultry housing and a field shelter as well as the main brick workshop/stable/store with adjoining garage and WC.
