Having been extended and altered over the years Town Head House is now a stunning and spacious family residence with beautiful period features and charming character evident throughout.
The property offers flexible accommodation (family home or a B&B, holiday let cottage).
The entrance porch leads through into the main hallway which has a traditional feature fireplace, double sash window and stunning original oak staircase with carved spindles. Directly ahead, the hallway has a sash window into the rear courtyard.
To the right, through an arched doorway the hallway then leads through to the dining hall which has twin sash windows. Off the dining hall is situated the main formal drawing room, with stunning large bay window to the front and feature fireplace with decorative original fire surround. To the far end of the dining hall there is a side entrance hallway with door to the garden/ front parking area. The side hallway has a cloaks/ WC nearest to the main door with a snug/ office enjoying beautiful views out to the rear garden.
To the back of the side hallway a further living room has
been opened out to seamlessly continue into a substantial garden room. These two rooms have a glorious view of the rear garden with French doors onto the side gravelled seating area and a feature fireplace in the living room area with a multi-fuel burning stove. The sitting room, in the west wing of the property, is a charming space with original fireplace with decorative surround. The Victorian Estate safe is still installed in the internal wall and is a special feature of the room.
The kitchen, to the rear of the sitting room, has locally sourced stone flag flooring and a beautifully hand crafted solid oak kitchen. It includes a built in Neff gas hob and Neff electric oven, with a larder and base units fitted opposite the gas Aga that sits proud at the heart of the room. Off the kitchen there is a utility room which has been plumbed for appliances and offers additional storage.
The head of the staircase on first floor landing has a feature arched window with etched glass and this area leads into the two oldest bedrooms in Town Head House. The first bedroom has superb decorative oak and plaster panelling and a beautiful feature fireplace and surround.

The second bedroom, again with a private en suite, enjoys hand-crafted solid ash fitted wardrobes and drawers.
