About this property

  • Station House is a characterful late Victorian home built circa 1895 in red sandstone. It was extended in 2017 to offer excellent updated family accommodation with original features such as astragal windows and fireplaces remaining.

    The accommodation begins with a bright reception hallway with a door leading to the sitting room with wood burning stove and window to the front. The bright modern fitted kitchen/dining room has wood flooring and a good range of wall and floor mounted units, central island with Belfast sink and breakfast bar, dual aspect windows one side with window seats overlooking the garden, and plenty of room for dining. Appliances include a recessed range cooker. There is access to the rear hallway, with a generously sized utility room and downstairs shower room off. The shower room can also be accessed via the ground floor bedroom. From the kitchen is access to the fine drawing room with fireplace and inset bookshelves either side, tall dual aspect windows and timber flooring.

    From the main hallway there is a staircase leading to the first floor where there are three double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room. Finally there is a contemporary three piece family bathroom.

    Gardens
    Station House sits within in fairly substantial gardens, which are mainly laid to lawn with some mature trees.

Station house is a great house for a family looking for that extra space and with the scope to extend into the former signal box it could be made to be a lit bit “out there” and very special.
