This beautifully appointed early 19th Century house has a wonderful flow with diverse accommodation offering both living space and income/office opportunities. There are both generous open reception rooms as well as more intimate family spaces making an ideal family house which is also perfect for entertaining.
The rear of the property, which can be accessed both internally or externally, is currently used as a substantial home office for the owner’s business. It provides a large open space suitable for a number of desks and is fitted with all the necessary equipment. This area was formerly a garage which could be re-instated or could provide a number of alternative uses such as gym, studio etc.
The current owners have substantially enhanced the house, creating a modern and up-to-date home that has been decorated beautifully and finished to an exacting standard, whilst maintaining and enhancing the period style.
The hallway forms the centrepiece of the house with two well-proportioned reception rooms either side. The first has a charming bay window and open fire creating a lovely drawing room. The adjacent sitting room would make an excellent playroom or study. There are a range of built-in cupboards throughout.
Towards the rear of the property is the true heart of the home; the kitchen/dining/living room. This has seen a sympathetic and well planned extension from the original building and is a large open-plan space that has been split into three independent zones. The kitchen/breakfast area is fitted with a range of solid wood units, complemented with a granite and wooden worktop and houses integrated appliances such as an oil fired AGA, back up summer cooking facilities, induction hob and space for a fridge/freezer. The kitchen opens on to the breakfast area which forms part of the extension is a generous open space with wood flooring and a double aspect allowing excellent communication between the kitchen and breakfast areas. A ceiling lantern light provides natural light into the centre part of this room.
A small step leads to the lower section where you will find the living room and formal dining room. Again open plan but the ‘L’ shaped arrangement creates a good degree of separation between each area. There are clever integrated cupboards with space for television and speakers and double doors which allow access on to the rear landscaped gardens and terracing.
The wood floor continues into the dining area creating a seamless link between the two and an integrated yet discrete fireplace contains a wood burner.
The kitchen area is backed up by three walk-in rooms; the first is an integrated pantry, a substantial utility room and the lower barrelled cellar ideal for wine storage and over flow kitchen items. There is a small side door which can be used for deliveries.
Steps from the kitchen lead via a half landing and WC into the office area. There is a reception hall, with additional integrated kitchen units, which has exterior access and would make a lovely garden room or an independent annexe subject to the necessary permissions. This leads on to the office area with its open feel and vaulted ceilings.
Rising to the first floor you will find five double bedrooms, two with en suite facilities and a family bathroom. All rooms offer a pleasant outlook over the front or rear with well fitted modern facilities and a host of period features. There are many integrated and fitted cupboards and wardrobes throughout.
The second floor contains a further double bedroom and bathroom together with useful additional storage.

With access from the main high street, double opening wooden gates lead through to the driveway and in turn the parking at the rear. The garden has been well planned and landscaped into three informal tiers. The top tier, bordered by flower beds, has a large grassed area with sunken trampoline and steps lead down to the second tier where you will find a circular decked area ideal for al fresco dining. The lower tier offers further seating and access to the main house.
Discreetly located at the end of the garden is the bunded oil tank with secondary rear access.
