    About this property

    • High Street comprises two properties on the same site right in the heart of this popular village. The principal property is a former pub and butcher's shop overlooking the Green. Of rendered elevations beneath a hipped tiled roof, this timber framed property is listed Grade II as being of Historical and Architectural interest. Of late 17th century origins, altered in the 19th century with three dormer windows on the second floor with segmental heads, the property has been further extended to the rear to provide a spacious kitchen/dining/living space. Three reception rooms span the front of the house with one or two exposed timbers (some moulded), two have fireplaces and arched alcoves and the sitting/family room has an oriel bay window to the front. In addition, there is a rear hall/boot room, utility (with oil fired boiler) and cloakroom with a cellar beneath part of the front of the house.

      The part vaulted kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of cupboards and drawers, a central island, granite worktops and a range of appliances including dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, coffee machine and an electric Brittania range with halogen hob.

      On the first floor there is a bookshelved landing creating a library area and three double bedrooms all facing the front – the principal with views to the green has an en suite bathroom, and the others have cupboards for storage. There is also a family bathroom and cloakroom on this floor. The second floor comprises two further bedrooms, vaulted with pretty arched windows to the front and a loft/store beyond one – with further potential perhaps (subject to planning and Listed Building Consent).

      In the grounds is an additional detached property with brick elevations of approximately 1,565 sq ft with an integral garage/workshop. Thought to originate from 1910, here there is a large double aspect reception room with kitchen/breakfast room beyond, a ground floor shower room and cloakroom and on the first floor there is a principal bedroom and en suite dressing room (or additional bedroom), another double bedroom, a smaller third bedroom or study and bathroom.

      Outside

      There is an area for parking in front of No 46 and the partly walled garden is principally to the rear of the main house with former bread making bin and a terrace.

      The site extends to about 0.21 of an acre.
