The original provenience of the property dates back to the 17th century, but recently it has undergone a complete renovation programme by the current owner and now offers a wonderful spacious contemporary family home that seamlessly blends open plan living with cosy formal entertaining spaces, designed for modern day living whilst being sympathetic to its past.
Constructed from local ironstone and sheltered beneath a tiled roof, this home is equipped with modern amenities, including oil-fired heating, a pressurised water system, and desirable Crittall style double-glazed windows and doors. The property spans four levels, including a converted cellar and attic, and the current owner has thoughtfully renovated and refurbished it to an exceptional standard. The result is a seamless fusion of contemporary interior design with traditional charm, featuring period elements such as exposed beams, fireplaces, latched internal doors, and window seats adorned with shutters.
Upon entering the property through two entrances at the front and rear, you'll find a spacious hallway leading to the ground floor, flanked by a long corridor that provides access to the ground floor spaces. The Sitting room boasts an engineered oak floor, a bay window with views of the front, and an open fireplace housing a log burner. Adjacent to it, the snug/family room also features an open fireplace and an engineered oak floor. The single-story kitchen/dining/living area spans over 40 feet and boasts a vaulted ceiling adorned with exposed purlins and rafters, along with a ceramic tiled floor. The kitchen is thoughtfully equipped with a range of bespoke solid wooden units, including a central island with a second oven and granite work surfaces. Fitted appliances, such as a range cooker, dishwasher, and wine fridge, complete the kitchen's offerings. Two sets of bi-folding doors open directly onto the walled courtyard, seamlessly merging indoor and outdoor living. This provides a great space for entertaining in the summer or wintertime.
The first floor accommodates three bedrooms and a family bathroom, complete with a roll-top bath and a separate shower. The principal bedroom includes a coveted walk-in dressing room with built-in storage and an en-suite shower room. This dressing room offers access from the hallway, presenting the option of a fifth bedroom.
Outside, the property is accessed through a right of way over the former farmyard, leading to parking and a detached garage. The south-facing front garden is a manicured expanse of lawn, intersected by a central pathway and bordered by cottage-style flower beds. The walled rear garden is a peaceful sanctuary with a spacious paved terrace that ensures privacy and relaxation, a real sun trap.
