About this property

  • The Old Coach House is a charming and characterful detached house, set in a generous garden of approximately 1.2 acres. Adjacent to a 13th Century church, this spacious and unusual building has been created from the attractive local Blue Lias stone recovered from the ruins of the former rectory which occupied the site. The Old Coach House enjoys plenty of privacy, whilst also having far reaching views over the surrounding countryside.

    The accommodation is arranged over two floors, with the ground floor comprising a reception hall with cloakroom and utility/boiler room off, a living room with staircase to the first floor and an archway opening to an open plan kitchen/dining room and sitting room. There is also a large utility, sun room with access to a pretty walled courtyard and an en suite bedroom which, subject to planning, would lend itself to ancillary accommodation. Quirky features include an original potable water storage cistern and a short underground passage.

    On the first floor there is master bedroom suite with en suite shower room, along with two further bedrooms, all of which benefit from fitted wardrobes. There is also a family bathroom.

    Gardens and Grounds
    The grounds are predominantly laid to lawn and bound with fence and hedge borders with a number of well established trees. To the northern boundary there is a substantial outbuilding used as a workshop/garage.
