Description

Smithy House is an attractive Grade II Listed detached stone-built village home. The property has a handsome façade with a stone porch and shuttered sash windows. A stone arched storm porch opens to the tiled entrance hall and leads into the elegant drawing room with large sash windows, ornate bath stone surround fire with log burner and dual aspect. Three main reception rooms, the sitting room, dining room and the large open plan kitchen/breakfast room adjoin one another. The dining room overlooks and opens out onto the garden and also leads into the farmhouse kitchen with a classic cream Aga, fitted wooden cabinets and double doors to the side garden. The sitting room is a warm inviting room with a cast iron fire, space for a wall mounted TV, built in bookshelves and a dual aspect.
To the first floor the period charm continues with exposed beams in many of the rooms including the master bedroom overlooking the street as well as the garden and benefiting from a private dressing room and a bathroom as well as a large, recently refurbished family bathroom. To the second floor is an attractive loft room again with exposed beams and its own storage/dressing area and sink.
Little smithy

Attached to the main house is Little Smithy. This stone-built cottage has been refurbished to a high standard and offers an additional two bedrooms to the main family home or a separate annexe. There is a cosy sitting room and compact kitchen plus a large attic bedroom with an en-suite bathroom plus a further double bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor.
This charming and practical addition to the property would lend itself well to being an annexe for a relative or a large home office. Smithy House has a gravelled parking area to the front with double doors into both the garage and the workshop. Little Smithy has a further gravelled parking area with its own gate from the street. There are mature shrubs and flower borders with a terrace adjacent to the kitchen. The rear garden has a terrace leading from the dining room with a mature vine trained across the house. There is a colourful raised bed and level lawn with a spectacular arched and shaped yew tree. The tree leads into a secluded garden with a circular arbour surrounded by lavender. Pretty dry stone walls surround and are bordered by more mature planting.
