Victorian village property with annex, workshop, office and outbuildings for storage, with income potential.
The Nook is an attractive, deceptively spacious Victorian four-bedroom property situated in an elevated position set back from the road. As well as being ideal for village living within walking distance of the village shop, school and other amenities, it offers a self-contained annex and office for ancillary living, and a workshop with light industrial use permission (B1C) connected to three phase electrics. The property therefore boasts two potential incomes streams. There is also the benefit of a useful boot room/study and further storage sheds.
The current owners have sympathetically modernised and renovated the property, dating back to 1890, maintaining much of its character and charm including flagstone floors and fireplaces and yet has the addition of some more contemporary twists with solid oak parquet flooring in the kitchen, folding open glass doors to the rear garden and replacement hand crafted shutters on the bedroom windows. It now offers spacious family living.
The ground floor consists of the flagstone hallway with plenty of south facing natural light, leading through to the sitting room and snug. The formal sitting room has good ceiling height and benefits from a wood burning stove and south facing sash bay window overlooking the front garden. Through into the snug with built in shelves and a beautiful flagstone floor, there is a further multi fuel stove which feeds a thermal store, which provides heating and hot water. (There is also an immersion heater for hot water.)
The kitchen and utility area are well equipped with a bespoke fitted kitchen, solid oak worktops, as well as a central island offering a useful workspace and seating area. There are two sinks, a Bosch induction hob, electric Bosch oven, Bosch built in dishwasher and fridge, space for large fridge/freezer and washing machine. This opens into the light and airy dining area with glass folding doors opening out on to the paved courtyard and garden beyond. A wc can be found just off the utility.
Upstairs are four bedrooms over two floors with a contemporary family bathroom. The principal bedroom on the second floor has the addition of a separate loo and sink. The bedrooms boast bespoke woodwork with an extensive bookcase in bedroom two, and useful built in storage under beds in bedroom three and four as well as further wardrobes under the stairs leading to the principal bedroom.
Outside, close to the house is a brick outbuilding which is used as a study/workspace with a cedar clad wall making it an attractive space to work from and is currently being used as a boot room. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a sandstone path leading to a second paved seating area, perfect for outdoor entertaining. The large shed, annex, office and workshop benefit from access from two gated rear drives laid to gravel where you will find the off-road parking directly accessed via Old School End. The light annex benefits from bi folds doors, a courtyard and has a kitchen with induction hob and integrated dishwasher and fridge as well as a sitting room area, separate shower room with loo and a mezzanine double bedroom above, ideal for guests to stay. The office also benefits from solid parquet flooring, or could also be used as a second bedroom for the annexe.
The commercial workshop, which could also be used as offices, with light industrial permission is a fantastic space positioned at the end of the second drive enabling independent access from the property if required and offers three phase electrics as well as separate services, there is also an additional storage shed here. There are endless opportunities to be offered with this property not to be missed!
Key attributes include striking Victorian property with a wealth of period features; popular village with extensive facilities; accessibility to Soho Farmhouse and communication links; self-contained annex and workshop/offices with B1C use providing a separate income stream: off road parking.

This house is like a box of surprises that keeps on giving! I love the fact that it has so much to offer particularly the annex and workshop which is unusual to find in such a well renowned village.Sophie GannonProperty agent
