    About this property

    • Cromwell House is a charming and well-presented Grade II Listed house set in a pleasant edge of village location. Dating back to 1722, but with earlier features, this attractive period property has brick, flint, and weatherboarded elevations under a tiled roof. This well-proportioned house retains much of its original character with features including sash windows, inglenook fireplaces and exposed timbers. The accommodation incorporates an entrance hall with stairs to the first floor, two reception rooms, kitchen/family room, study, two bathrooms and four bedrooms.

      The good-sized sitting room is located off the entrance hall, with a sash window to the front, inglenook fireplace housing a wood burner and exposed ceiling beam. The double aspect dining room has a sealed fireplace and quarry tiled floor. The newly created shower room now benefits from a walk-in shower and WC, and the bathroom is located off the kitchen with a bath, pedestal wash basin and exposed ceiling beams. The superb partly vaulted kitchen/family room has a handmade oak stable door to the garden and impressive inglenook fireplace housing a French multi-fuel stove. The kitchen has a combination of fitted and standing cupboards, wood worktops, Belfast sink with drainer, conventional cooker, quarry tiled floor, ceiling mounted spotlights and space for a washing machine and fridge. A galleried mezzanine over the kitchen/family room lends itself as a study.

      The landing to the first floor has a window to the rear enjoying views over the gardens. There are three bedrooms on the first floor, and bedroom four is located on the second floor, with a vaulted ceiling and exposed timbers.

      Outside the property is a five bar wooden gate to the side leading to a paved driveway providing parking for several cars. The garden backs onto further gardens and is enclosed by hedging and picket fencing, making the garden very secure for children or dogs. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with specimen and fruit trees, well stocked flower and shrub beds, sheltered gravel area for seating, two storage sheds and two outdoor taps.
