Idyllic Country home with the potential to improve.
The Old House is situated in the heart of the village surrounded by gardens offering plenty of off road parking on the gravel drive. A detached Grade II listed property built of stone with a tiled roof thought to date back to 1640 with later additions. There are many original features including exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces, window seats and wooden floor boards
all of which add to the charm of this home which is in need of modernisation. There are three good sized reception rooms with south facing kitchen/breakfast room and separate utility and cloakroom.
The entrance hall has a separate cloakroom which leads through to the dining room, with flag stone floors, a large inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and dual aspect window seats overlooking the front and rear gardens. This leads through to the delightful sitting room of generous proportions with parquet flooring and open fire place and window seats. The family room which could be used as a playroom or dining room has the original elm floor boards, and large inglenook fireplace with original salt cupboard and direct access onto the garden through glass French doors. The kitchen/breakfast room was a later addition with a large south facing window, with bespoke oak hand crafted cupboards with built in dishwasher, fridge and freezer and electric fan oven and hob and gas mains Aga. A separate utility room with double sink, built in cupboards and space for washing machine and tumble dryer. There are stone steps down to the cellar. The cellar is a good sized room useful for storage with a stone floor and heating, another set of stone steps leads up to the dining room.
The elm staircase leads up to the first floor whereby there is the principal bedroom and en suite bathroom and four further bedrooms, and family bathroom. Stairs up to the second floor give rise to bedroom six with a mezzanine. There is further accessible attic storage which has the potential to be converted into more living accommodation if required.
Outside are pretty gardens with mature trees and shrubs giving it a lovely buffer from nearby properties. The mature trees include Walnut, Hazelnut, Mulberry and Spruce enclosed by stone walling with an area that was once used for vegetable growing. There is a gravel drive with plenty of parking for several cars.
This home would suit those looking to escape the city, or for those looking for a family home with space to roam.
