Understood to date from the 18th century and of local Hornton stone construction the property has been significantly improved over the years and still offers the potential for further extension, subject to planning. With four separate reception rooms and an impressive annex, the property offers versatile space presented to a high standard with a wealth of period features, including exposed stone walls and beams.

      A charming, dual aspect snug benefits from a inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and leads to the spacious, dual aspect drawing / music room, featuring a stone fireplace and has a door into the courtyard. A welcoming dining room with wooden floor and wood burning stove opens into the kitchen.

      A wonderful, dual aspect sitting room benefits from an open fireplace and under floor heating, with double doors and a separate stable door opening into the garden.

    I think the Old Bakery has such charm. The annex provides a perfect spot to work from home and I think the potential to further extend the property is really exciting.
