Originally built in 1880 with later extensions to make this a very pretty, characterful family home.
The front door takes you into a small hallway with door to the ground floor living areas and stairs to the bedroom accommodation.
The door opens into the pretty DINING ROOM which has space for a large dining table and overlooks the lane at the front of the house. A small alcove under the stairs is rather useful for storage or a small desk.
Into the SITTING ROOM with its inset wood burner to keep you cosy on cooler evenings and wet winter days. For those warmer days there are patio doors which open straight onto a patio area. Timber cupboards set to the side of the chimney breast offer good storage space. A door into an inner hallway takes you to the kitchen, utility, shower room and bedroom 5/study.
The KITCHEN is delightful and a lovely space for the chef of the household! Overlooking the large rear garden and a back door to access it, the kitchen is fully fitted with wall and base units; plenty of work surfaces and terracotta tiled flooring give it a rustic feel. There is an inset gas hob with extractor over, inset oven and grill and space and plumbing for a dishwasher and fridge freezer. Back into the inner hallway and there is a UTILITY cupboard which houses the boiler and has good additional storage space.
Along the hall is a generously sized SHOWER ROOM which is fully tiled with a double walk-in shower, WC and wash basin. Then BEDROOM 5/STUDY, a double room overlooking the lane to the front, useful as a guest room or for family who prefer ground floor bedrooms.
From the main hall the stairs rise to the remaining bedroom accommodation. BEDROOM 1 a double with a walk-in wardrobe and ornate fireplace, overlooks the lane with its field and village views.
BEDROOMS 2 & 3 are also both double rooms, one overlooks the front and the other the garden at the rear.
BEDROOM 4 is a SINGLE ROOM and is presently used for storage and has a built-in storage cupboard.
The FAMILY BATHROOM has a claw foot, stand alone bath with telephone shower attachments, WC and wash basin, an airing cupboard that houses the boiler (only 5 years old) and large frosted window bringing in natural light.
There are 3 lofts, (2 are boarded) all accessible from the first floor.
There is parking at the front of the house and PARKING at the side for several car leading up to a GARAGE – which is in need of some work. The REAR GARDEN is very large and wide, mainly laid to lawn with fruit trees and mature shrubs. There is a PATIO area which sits outside the kitchen and sitting room and a VERY LARGE RAISED DECKING AREA which has masses of room for table chairs, loungers and BBQ! The views from here are stunning across open countryside. This fabulously large garden offers opportunity for families and space for a wonderful kitchen garden for those with green fingers!
