Property description

This enchanting house, originally dating from the 1700's, has been extensively renovated and extended in recent years to create a charming and practical family home. The entrance lobby leads into one of two main reception rooms with an inglenook and exposed beams that have been restored to the original oak. The dining area forms part of the Martin Moore kitchen, which has an extensive range of base and wall units, with granite and oak work surfaces. There is a gas fuelled Rayburn, which provides heating and hot water plus cooking facilities, and a separate gas hob. An engineered oak floor in the kitchen has underfloor heating. Bespoke folding glazed oak doors give access to the rear courtyard and the exterior building. The sitting room has a granite hearth with multifuel woodburner and exposed oak beams making it a most inviting space. From an inner hall, the downstairs shower room with basin and wc has a limestone floor with underfloor heating. Upstairs are two double bedrooms with built in cupboards, the master bedroom has views to the rear garden and an adjacent single bedroom, which is ideal as a nursery or peaceful study. The family bathroom has a re-enamelled roll top bath and hand held shower. Accessed from the courtyard, the garage building has a separate utility room with plumbing for the usual appliances and space for an additional fridge/freezer. Behind the car area are two generous storage rooms. This building has its own separate gas boiler to keep the temperature ambient all year round.
