About this property

  • This charming Grade II listed, late 17th century house is positioned just off the high street within the popular village of Byfield. Once a Haberdashery, it is constructed of squared ironstone and has been improved by the current owners.

    The property has an array of period features throughout. The sitting room has exposed timbers, and an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. There are stairs to a cellar and French doors that open on to an enclosed rear courtyard. The study has stone mullion windows at side aspect. The drawing room offers extra living space, ideal for entertaining.

    The kitchen/breakfast room wall has been knocked through to which was previously the separate family room. It is of generous proportion with a sizeable window which would have been the original shop front. A newly fitted kitchen has also been added with Quartz worktops and has gas fired Aga. In addition to this, there is a built in 5 ring gas hob and oven.

    There is a utility room and cloakroom off of the kitchen which also has access to the courtyard.

    The property has five bedrooms which are situated over the first and second floors. The principal bedroom has a stone mullion window and offers generous size with en suite shower. There are a further 4 double bedrooms, and spacious family bathroom. There is also storage on the landing.

    To the rear of the property and in addition to the main accommodation, there is a detached two bedroom cottage. This self-contained living space comprises a sitting room with inglenook fireplace, a kitchen and two first floor bedrooms with a bathroom in between. It is currently being used as an air bnb.

    As well as the enclosed courtyard to the rear of the main house, there is a garden which is accessed by a private patio pathway. Surrounded by a stone wall, it has a majority of lawn with a selection of vegetable, herd and rose gardens, and children's play area.

    There is a gated driveway with parking to the side for up to three cars and useful stone built stores/outbuildings which have planning permission. Ref DA/2020/0241.

What sold it to me was the wonderful kitchen/breakfast room, and all with an additional income stream!
