About this property

  • This historic building was formerly an Inn and has been recently been converted into three attached properties by C. Ansell & Sons, specialist builders, whose their fully trained team of traditional craftsmen use the highest quality materials. The firm has been trading since 1791 and as such is one of the oldest family owned businesses in England, having and used extensively for projects by the Church and the National Trust and as well as private clients. As a result the attention to detail and superb finish is clearly evident . The house has been stunningly designed and appointed and created by blending all the charm of old world features with the comforts of the latest modern fittings. The spacious accommodation is arranged over three floors and particular features include a charming sitting room, and a stunning kitchen and dining room.

    The property is approached through an entrance hall with a cloak cupboard and beautiful stone flooring. The open plan sitting room features some beautiful oak beams and a charming fireplace. The well appointed luxury kitchen offers a suburb range of quality units including a breakfast bar, built in larder cupboard, two ovens, and an American style fridge freezer. The kitchen has stylish granite worktops. Flowing from the kitchen the dining room has a roof lantern, and double doors onto the garden terrace. Both rooms have lovely hardwood timber floors. Leading off the kitchen is a useful utility room and downstairs WC.

    The well-proportioned bedrooms on the first floor both have beautifully appointed en suite bathrooms and the family bathroom. The two second floor rooms can be addition bedrooms or study rooms offering great flexible accommodation.
