Set in a delightfully central village location this charming detached period village home is well located for all the local facilities and offers well balanced family living space.
The Old Telephone Exchange dates from the Edwardian era and maintains much of its original charm and character with some sympathetic extensions now offering some excellent living space.
The entrance hallway runs from the front to the rear with a lobby area and exposed wooden floorboards leading down to the split level kitchen area to the rear.
The principle reception room has a large dual-aspect with a high ceiling, Parquet flooring and fireplace with inset gas wood-burner style stove. Also to the front of the house there is a family room and study. To the rear and occupying most of the back of the house is a large kitchen/dining/ conservatory which has an extensive range of custom built traditional units with co-ordinated roll-top work surfaces and island unit/breakfast bar. There is an integrated gas/electric fired AGA within a recess with extractor above. This area is fully tiled and the kitchen has various integrated appliances. There are windows and doors opening onto the gardens and a lovely feature of this space is the Amdega style sunroom to the rear with French doors and underfloor heating.
Moving upstairs, on the first floor there are three good sized bedrooms with a master suite enjoying a walk through shower room leading to a Jack and Jill family bathroom. There are fitted wardrobes in the master suite and the two further bedrooms also enjoy use of an additional family bathroom/shower. On the second floor there is a further guest bedroom with dressing area, bedroom and en suite shower. There are an additional two bedrooms, one with en suite shower, which can be accessed by separate staircases.
On the outside, the house sits in beautifully tended and mature landscaped gardens which have been tastefully planted with a variety of mature shrubs and trees. There is a patio to the rear of the house and gated paths on either side. To the side sits a large garage which has presently been converted to a games room but perhaps could provide a self-contained annexe if required (subject to planning permission).
