About this property

  • An attractive grade II listed house, formerly an C18 barn, The Tithe House is constructed of stone, with quoins and stone dressings under a Welsh slate roof, and is positioned in an attractive position overlooking the village's Green, alongside its parish church.

    The front door opens under an open fronted porch into an entrance stairwell hallway. The kitchen/breakfast room has views of, and access to, the garden and incorporates an extensive fitted suite, with dining breakfast bar, electric oven and hob. The hallway also provides access to the integral coach house garage, along with the utility, a workshop and store beyond, which together occupy the majority of the ground floor.

    The staircase rises to first floor level, where the landing corridor accesses the spacious 19', dual-aspect sitting room and dining rooms, each with attractive views of the garden, together with bedroom four, with built in wardrobes, and the family bathroom.

    Bedrooms one, two and three are at second floor level, accessed along a landing corridor with built-in eaves storage cupboards. Bedroom one has a vaulted ceiling, exposed stone gable wall and built-in wardrobe. Bedroom two and three also have full height ceilings, with a built-in wardrobe to bedroom two. All offer elevated views of the garden.

    The property occupies an attractive setting, alongside the parish church. Parking is provided on the driveway access to the garage.

    The large garden lies to the rear of the house, accessed from the kitchen and garage. Walled to two sides, the south-easterly orientated gardens are lawned, with extensive and well stocked flowering and shrub beds, which offer spring and summer colour and fragrant interest, with a backdrop to mature trees. The grounds extend to 0.22 acres, or thereabouts in total.

This is an attractive property, with a lovely garden, in a pleasant village setting, with relatively little passing traffic, so convenient for many of the area's favoured leisure pursuits, schools and commuter links. It has been a loved home for the almost 30 years and works well. Equally, it offers obvious potential to me, subject to all listed consents, for potential enhancement with the incorporation of some of the ground floor garage and stores into the accommodation.
