    About this property

    • The Old Bakery is a charming 19th century property comprising of brick and slate, which has been owned by the current owners for the last 30 years. It provides flexible, deceptively spacious accommodation and retains a wealth of period features. Set in a thriving village, with good communication links and access to a range of schools, it is likely to appeal to a variety of buyers.

      The ground floor has a variety of rooms. The sitting room is sizeable with a fireplace and log burner. There is also another family room/ snug, perfect for cosy evenings with a working open fireplace and window seat. The kitchen is traditional with a Mercury five ring gas hob and inbuilt appliances. There is also a spacious dining room with a generous adjoining conservatory. The conservatory is a lovely open space leading out to the garden through French doors, where there is a courtyard/ patio area with an established vine on the pergola and an external bread oven. A charming outdoor space, perfect areas for entertaining and alfresco dining. There is also a boot room, downstairs cloakroom and garden room with hot tub.

      The first floor comprises a spacious and versatile landing. Leading off are four double bedrooms and a useful utility room/ airing cupboard. The principal bedroom is an impressive size and benefits from its own separate dressing room and en suite bathroom. There is also a Juliet balcony with an outlook of the garden. There are three further double bedrooms; one with built in wardrobes, a separate family bathroom and a separate shower room with a glass shower and mural.

      The property also benefits from recent change of use. Originally a retail unit to the front of the property, this now has residential use, thereby providing scope for an additional reception room, home office or annexe. More potential continues to the rear of the property where there is a self contained annex with an open plan kitchen/ sitting room and one bedroom; a workshop with store room and WC; an open store and three further store rooms. Planning permission has been granted for conversion of the former annexe and stores to a separate three bedroom cottage. Ref 23/02691/FUL.

      As well as the courtyard, there is a charming split level garden. Mostly laid to lawn, with flower borders, vegetable patches and mature shrubs, trees and hedges. It is private and peaceful, with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. There is also a gravelled driveway. There are two access areas for vehicles to the property. One to the front through the black gates, and one to the rear through a wooden gate to a gravelled driveway. (Via Butchers Lane.)

    What an exciting opportunity. The house is in such a lovely position, I think it would be perfect for an Airbnb with all the potential accommodation.
