    About this property

    • Farthings is a delightful detached property with painted brick and tile hung elevations under a tiled roof. Believed to date from the 1920s, the property has been significantly extended and sympathetically renovated by the current owners, with improvements including partial underfloor heating to the ground floor and double glazing throughout.

      The result is an extremely well-appointed house offering stylish and contemporary accommodation.

      The spacious sitting room has wood flooring and a fireplace.

      The open plan kitchen/dining room has an excellent range of wood fronted cabinetry complemented by granite surfaces and tiled floor. Appliances include an integrated dishwasher and under counter freezer; there is space for a range cooker and hood.

      The dining area is vaulted and fully glazed on two sides, with French doors to the slate- paved terrace.

      A cloakroom, with space and plumbing for a washing machine, lies off the entrance hall.

      On the first floor, the superb dual aspect master bedroom has a walk-through dressing area leading to the contemporary en suite shower room.

      Three further bedrooms and a stunning family bathroom with free-standing roll top bath, separate shower, basin and WC complete the accommodation.

      Outside
      Farthings has right of way over the short drive from The Green, and is set slightly back from the road, with a pretty lawned garden and off street parking to the front of the house.

      The good-sized landscaped rear garden is fully enclosed by fencing. A slate path leads to the solid oak front door, and on to an impressive elevated rear terrace, creating an ideal space for entertaining. The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn, and has the benefit of a detached home office and storage shed.

      Agent's Note
      The woodburning stove, range cooker, breakfast bar and kitchen dresser are not included.
