An enchanting Grade II listed village property with outbuildings
The Priory is a handsome house dating back to 1570 and has retained many original features. The current owner has lovingly updated the house to offer a superb family home which flows particularly well.
The house was Listed in 1983, notably for its sash windows, gabled hooded panelled front door and off centre brick ridge stack, as well as some internal features including the nooks to either side of the fireplace in the lounge and the dining room egg and dart' moulded cornice and fluted frieze, original dining room fireplace and settle as well as an internal wall cupboard. There are two beautiful trees in the grounds, subject to Tree Preservation Orders, one being a Lime Tree and the other a Weeping Beech.
The entrance hall has decorative Mynton tiles and leads into the sitting room which is lovely and light with exposed beams and dual aspect sash windows. There is a fireplace with a wood burning stove with the nooks either side. Off the sitting room is the dining room which has wooden flooring, an original fireplace with a settle and a door leading into the inner lobby and kitchen. Beyond the dining room is the library/study with a door outside to the garden.
The kitchen breakfast room has pine units, tiled flooring, a double electric NEFF oven with a gas hob. There is a pantry off, along with a useful utility area with storage, a boot cupboard and WC with access outside via a stable door to the gardens.
On the first floor is the principle bedroom with built in wardrobes and a beautiful en-suite bathroom which has a free standing roll top bath sitting centrally. There are a further 4 double bedrooms and a family bathroom with tiled flooring.
The Priory is accessed via a gravelled driveway which opens out to a parking area and garaging. The gardens are situated to the front and to the side of the house and offer privacy. Mature trees flank the boundary along with hedging.
There is a lawn area at the front of the house and the gardens sweep around to the side where there is a patio and seating area. A separate entrance takes you to a further parking area with two separate, traditional outbuildings, which with the necessary planning permission could be converted.
