Offering a happy blend of accessibility and country-style living, this period home offers some really lovely reception areas.
Dating back nearly 200 years this former lodge house to the surrounding estate has been sympathetically improved by the current owners, now offering good sized family living space incorporating pleasant reception areas on the ground floor and three double bedrooms upstairs.
An entrance lobby leads you into the snug and dining room which is semi-open plan and divided by a double backed fireplace with an inset wood-burning stove to one side with Cast Iron fireplace on the other. This room is the hub of the original house and, like many of the other rooms, retains the original diamond leaded windows. A staircase leads from here to the first floor. To the side of the house there is a fitted kitchen with an electric range-style cooker along with traditional-style wall and base units and roll-top work surfaces. This opens into a breakfast area with a door onto the garden and a larger, more everyday family room. Just off the kitchen there is a guest WC and store room, together with a utility room housing the oil central heating boiler.
Moving upstairs, there are three double bedrooms, the second bedroom with original Cast Iron fireplace and all three with built-in wardrobes. The master bedroom has a large walk-in wardrobe potentially suitable for an en suite shower room. This is adjacent to the family bathroom which has a three-piece suite and separate shower cubicle.
On the outside, the rear garden is of a good size with various sheds, two green houses and concealed oil tank. There is a patio adjacent to the kitchen and the gardens themselves are mature with a well-chosen selection of mature shrubs, trees and fruit trees. There is off-road parking to the front for several cars.
Agents notes: The house has oil fired central heating, private drainage (cess-pit) and the water comes from a shared borehole in the neighbouring farm.
