A charming detached village house, steeped in local history but with modern day extensions.
Monks Rest is a Grade II listed house and constructed during the 17th century. The property has been improved and extended over the years, but with sympathy to its age and character. It still retains some mullion windows, several exposed timbers and two fine stone fireplaces. Upon entering the property there is a large but comfortable dining/reception room with a fine stone fireplace, exposed ceiling beams and open stairs leading to the first floor. Off this room is the main sitting room with another exposed stone fireplace with wood burner. The extended ground floor reception/garden room has a light, airy and almost contemporary feel. The present owners designed the extension to enable it to be potentially used as a self-contained annexe, having a second kitchen, ground floor shower room and its own access.
The first floor has a spacious landing with recessed seating area. The principal bedroom with its high ceilings has an en suite bathroom and ample wardrobes/cupboard space. There are three further bedrooms and a family shower room.
The gardens lie to the front of the property and are walled, laid mainly to lawn with flower beds. There is a large paved area from the garden/reception room and a good size timber store with electricity. The property benefits from a southerly aspect and there is a parking space for a vehicle.

I am particularly impressed with the way the character features blend with the newer extension, creating a warm but contemporary feel.Jack King
