A delightful Grade II Listed former bakery in a desirable village setting
The Old Bakery is a handsome Grade II Listed link-detached property, set in the heart of the charming village of Burchett's Green. Dating from the mid 18th century, the property features attractive red brick elevations, with sash windows and a variety of splendid original features inside, while the accommodation is spacious and flexible, with four reception rooms and five bedrooms.
At the front of the ground floor there is a well-presented reception room, with an attractive fireplace, fitted with a woodburning stove. To the other side of the entrance hall there is a study, with original timber beamwork and plaster infill to the walls. Further back on the ground floor there is a formal dining room with exposed timber floorboards and brickwork, and the wonderful Victorian cast iron bread ovens. The snug has a fireplace with a woodburning stove, while at the rear of the ground floor there is a large L-shaped kitchen and breakfast room. The open-plan living and entertaining space has timber ceiling beams and plenty of kitchen storage, as well as a range cooker.
The first floor has four double bedrooms and one single. The principal bedroom has exposed timber floorboards, extensive fitted storage and en suite bathroom. One of the further bedrooms is en suite, while there is also a family bathroom with an over-bath shower.
At the front of the property there is shared gravel access, set back from the highway and leading to a private driveway under a flour loft. The driveway leads to a detached barn at the rear of the house, providing garaging for two cars. The barn has a cloakroom and a studio upstairs amidst the timber roof beams, ideal as a study, music room or home gym. The flour loft provides additional space as a study and occasional sixth bedroom. The garden to the front of the property is enclosed by a low brick wall with wrought iron railings and includes paved and garden areas. The secluded rear garden backs on to an orchard, with farmland beyond and has an area of terracing for al fresco dining as well as an area of lawn, bordered by colourful flowerbeds and a variety of shrubs, trees and hedgerows.
