    About this property

    • This Grade II listed building is understood to date from the 15th century. The oak-framed structure, with brick and stone elevations, was rescued from the 'At Risk Register' and converted for residential use in 2005 by the present owners. Internally, the property has a light and spacious feel, with the use of open plan design, the inclusion of bi-folding doors and the vaulted roof being open. This design results in there being an absolute wealth of exposed and well conserved structural timber. The full height, central bay provides a particularly spacious reception and dining hall, with a step leading up to the main sitting room and a semi-enclosed study area under the catslide roof. French doors open into the front garden. A beautifully appointed, fitted kitchen, with a range of bespoke furniture under granite surfaces, includes a central island breakfast bar and bi-folding doors open to the garden. The boot room, larder and utility room are accessed off the kitchen. A pair of oak staircases lead to two bedrooms, complete with en suite wet rooms.

      Access leads to a private forecourt, with a timber, barn-style carport and store room. To the front of the house, there is an enclosed, formally laid out, Italianate garden comprising a paved south-facing terrace leading onto a chequer board lay-out of alternate grass and gravel squares with miniature box trees. The rear garden hard landscaping is a continuation of the indoor flooring of Natural Limestone, and comprises a low-maintenance arrangement with water feature.
