Period house with detached cottage and outbuildings.
Old Place is a delightful period property, with a wealth of charm and character, believed to date back to the mid-19th century. The house has the added benefit of a lovely spacious detached cottage and outbuildings, which could have the potential to be used as a gym or an office. There are a host of features including exposed beams, high ceilings, wood flooring, sash windows, fireplaces and two staircases.
The front door opens into the reception hall with sash windows and a staircase to the first floor. English Oak wood flooring extends from the hall into the stunning dining and sitting rooms, with wide double doors between the rooms. Both are of wonderful proportions, full of character, with heavily beamed ceilings, and sash windows overlooking the front garden. French doors from the dining room open on to the garden and in the sitting room is a beautiful brick fireplace with a working fire. A door from the sitting room leads to an inner hallway with a cloakroom, a second staircase to the first floor and through to the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of units complemented by granite worktops. Appliances include a Belling dual fuel range cooker and a dishwasher, with space for an American style fridge/freezer and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a useful walk in utility cupboard together with a built-in Welsh dresser style shelving/storage unit. A door from the kitchen opens to the rear garden and there is plenty of room for a table. A further reception room lies adjacent to the kitchen, with lovely garden views, and would be perfect as a family/TV room. A study, off the reception hall, completes the accommodation on this floor.
On the first floor, the principal bedroom is a charming room, heavily beamed with built in wardrobes, a dressing area and an en suite shower room. There are four further bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes and served by both a family shower room and a family bathroom.
Old Place is approached through gates on to a gravelled driveway with parking for several cars. The property benefits from garaging and outbuildings providing excellent storage and offering great versatility. The house has a large frontage with a manicured lawn and well stocked beds and borders. Footpaths lead from the driveway to the front door and to the side gate and cottage. The rear garden enjoys a terrace adjoining the house and a central patio area, both ideal for outside entertaining or a good spot to relax. The gardens are enclosed with mature trees and hedging giving a good deal of privacy. A store room and shed to the rear also gives further outside storage. A real feature of the property is the delightful detached garden cottage to the front, with two reception rooms, a bedroom, kitchen and shower room. This provides charming accommodation, generous in size and would be ideal as a guest suite or a home office, but could have a multitude of uses.
