    About this property

    • Steeped in local history, this prominent period cottage was formerly the village butchers shop and convenience store and more recently a popular restaurant known locally as the "Farmhouse Feast". When the restaurant closed sympathetic changes were made to the use and layout of the building using traditional local materials. This attractive Grade II listed building is now a wonderful and spacious home displaying many fine period features including exposed timbers, open fireplaces and original decorative pargetting. The house has attractive part rendered, part weather boarded elevations including a bay window at the front of the house with a mixture of casement and sash windows under a predominantly peg-tiled roof. The deceptively spacious accommodation in brief comprises four reception rooms and a kitchen/breakfast room with four/five bedrooms at first floor level including an en suite to the bedroom as well as potential for a further en suite in addition to the family bathroom.

      The property is entered from the front into a delightful reception room with a cast iron Victorian-style fireplace with decorative tiled inset. There is a bay window and open studwork leading through to the dining room with a study beyond displaying further exposed timbers. The lounge is positioned to the rear of the property and provides extensive windows overlooking the garden and a beautiful brick fireplace with log burner. An inner hall separates the kitchen/breakfast room and offers stairs leading to the first floor and access to the cloakroom. The kitchen includes a range of cottage-style fitted units including eye level storage cupboards with worktops incorporating sink with cupboards and drawers beneath. There is a separate cooking area with an AGA cooker, quarry-tiled floor and a central breakfast area. Dwarf doors to storage facilities. The utility room is located off the kitchen and includes an oil-fired boiler and space and plumbing for washing machine

      To the first floor there a large area currently used as a study/fitness room. There are a further four bedrooms and a family bathroom. One of the bedrooms provides a luxury en suite with a vaulted ceiling, roll-top bath, shower enclosure, w.c. and wash hand basin. The principal bedroom is positioned to the rear of the cottage and is a charming room with a walk-in dressing room with the option for further en suite facilities.

      Double timber gates to the side of the house provide potential for off-road parking. A single garage is being offered with the property located a short distance from the property in St. Michaels Drive with an annual licence charge of £134.00 per annum. At the rear of the house is a delightful tiered terrace seating area with a retaining red-brick wall and flower and shrubs providing a wealth of colour.
