Sitting Room Kitchen/Breakfast Room Open Plan Living Master Bedroom Two Further Bedrooms Family Bathroom Views over Open Farmland Off Road Parking Character Features
This former Coach House has been converted to make a light open plan home whilst retaining many character features. The property benefits from backing onto open parkland and is situated in a quiet location within the village.
The renovation of the Coach House has been done sympathetically and has kept character features such as the arched doorways and windows. There are wooden floorboards throughout with the exception of the kitchen which has tiles. The sitting room benefits from being south facing making it light and airy leading through to the kitchen. The kitchen is well equipped with modern retro style units leaving space for a kitchen table. There are French doors leading out from the kitchen in to the garden.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom and the bathroom both benefit from being south facing and have views over the open countryside, whilst the second and third bedroom look out over the garden.
Outside the front of the property is a lovely cobbled area which provides parking for two cars. The garden is to the rear of the property and consists of a lawned area and a new decked seating area benefiting from the parkland views.
