About this property

  • Attractive late 18th century Grade II listed village house. Stone construction under part Stonesfield slate/part reconstituted Stonesfield slate roof.

    Wealth of period features including fireplaces, sash windows, window seat, exposed floorboards, cornicing, built-in storage and display cupboards and shelves, exposed timbers, stone staircase and panelled internal doors.

    Due to its architecture (well proportioned principal rooms, high ceilings and sash windows) the house affords a feeling of space and light.

    Excellent kitchen and breakfast room opening into the dining room, ideal for modern day family. The kitchen has extensive fitted units, tiled flooring and has a window and access into a recently built conservatory with double glazed elevations, making a delightful sitting and entertaining area.

    The house has undergone some modernisation including a shower room, WC and the conservatory plus the installation of Clearview multifuel stove and Gazco flame-effect gas fire.

    Well laid out family sized accommodation, with versatility offered by Bladebone Cottage, a separate cottage comprising two bedrooms, one bathroom, kitchen and sitting room. Perfect as an income stream, for working from home or as guest accommodation or granny annexe.

    Extensive garaging for a number of cars, with planning permission to convert part of the garage into a craft workshop/ studio (Planning ref: 20/005886/F). There may also be scope for a games room or office with skylights and double door access on to the rear garden, subject to the relevant consents.

    Ample off road parking. Level gardens, Summerhouse. Greenhouse.

    In all about 0.35 acres.

I really like this house, especially with the addition of the cottage and the potential to convert the garaging, in such a great village with shop, pub and school, what more do you need?!
