Handsome Grade II listed Georgian property thought to date from 1780, including around 4 acres of land
The house is a handsome Grade II listed Georgian property thought to date from 1780 and altered in the 19th Century. It is a house of enormous character which retains many of the architectural features of the period, including window shutters, cornicing and fire places. It is currently split into two parts and does require modernisation, however it does offer a purchaser the opportunity to create a wonderful family home.
A sweeping tree lined driveway leads you to the front of the property, a traditional stone entrance porch with front door opening leads through to the traditional kitchen with original tiled flooring and exposed stone feature fireplace with a Yorkshire rose inlay and housing a solid fuel Rayburn. From the kitchen breakfast room is a useful walk in pantry. Adjacent to this room is a stunning light drawing room with high ceilings and large windows offering views over the surrounding land, a large feature marble fire surround and traditional cornicing. A cosy snug is located next to this room with a marble fire place. A return staircase leads you to the first floor with three double bedrooms, all with splendid views over the grounds and hills in the distance, a dressing room, a traditional family bathroom and a further staircase to the second floor attic room.
The house is currently divided into two dwellings with potential to be converted back to one home. Currently accessible from both the courtyard along with separate access from the driveway. This entrance opens into a separate hallway which leads to a study room, and cosy sitting room with feature stone fireplace and access out to the gardens. Further along the hallway a large drawing room with bay window and a kitchen breakfast room adjacent with exposed wood flooring and a range of base and wall units. To the first floor are two double bedrooms, a traditional family bathroom with exposed wooden flooring and a walk in airing cupboard.
The property has private mature gardens, trees and a woodland. An area of outstanding beauty all year round and abundant in wildlife and garden birds. A pathway leads around the outside of the property, firstly to an expanse of lawn to the front, a perfect spot from which to take in the breath taking panoramic views and further leading to a secluded terrace area ideal for outdoor entertaining and a kitchen garden area. In addition a lawn area opposite the rear porch has a beautiful cherry blossom tree and with steps leading up to woodland. A large area to the rear of the property provides ample parking space and a separate walled courtyard has a workshop and utility room.
