    About this property

    • SUMMARY
      Substantial detached stone and slate farmhouse. Features include high ceilings, picture rails, dado rails, bay windows, window shutters, fireplaces and panel doors. A number of rooms have dual aspect windows for additional light. The current configuration is particularly versatile with a large floored attic room which has potential to be developed further as an en suite bedroom, games room, cinema room or hobby space. It is understood that the front part of the house was built around 220 years ago (1800), the rear wing was added at least 120 years ago and the single storey rear extension and the two storey front bay window and front porch were added in the 1950s or 1960s.

      ACCOMMODATION
      An entrance vestibule has tiled flooring and a box bay window overlooking the front driveway. All the main ground floor rooms are off the spacious reception hallway. Informal and bright is the family room with bay window and window seat overlooking the garden. A cosy aspect to the room is the log burning stove and fitted bookcases. Opposite is the drawing room with double aspect windows and an open fire. The third reception room is the formal dining room which has large windows and dual access to both the hallway and then connects through to the drawing room. The kitchen has plenty of room for dining and features handmade wooden units and an oil fired light blue four oven AGA, with wood panelled walls to dado height. Bringing the outdoors in are double glass panel doors which open onto a large decked area. For everyday domestic tasks there is a utility room with base and wall units and space for a refrigerator and freezer. At ground floor level is a shower room with white two piece suite and a shower enclosure with mains shower. The study is bright and has a garden view along with fitted bookshelves. A cloakroom is fitted with a two piece white suite. A wide and carpeted staircase leads to the spacious landing. The current principal bedroom has dual aspect windows and a fireplace. A further bedroom adjacent and with connecting door would be ideal as an enhanced dressing room or potential en suite. Four further double bedrooms are of good proportions. A cloakroom is fitted with a WC. The family bathroom has a white three piece suite and wood panelling. A large and versatile attic room which has wood panelled walls and ceiling, a window overlooking the garden and a large Velux window, has potential for further development subject to gaining the necessary planning and building consents.
