Full description

The main part of the house is built of local, finely dressed stone elevations under a Welsh slate roof with timber sash windows. At the side there is a later extension dating from the early 20th Century. There is a converted 1 bed coach house and the garden is delightful

The ground floor accommodation is well presented and retains many period features including half-height panelling in the hall, Victorian fireplaces in many rooms, working shutters and period fitted cupboards.
There are 2 principal reception rooms, 1 with a Victorian open fireplace with a pine fire surround and over-mantel and the other fitted with a Jetmaster open fire. There is also a delightful and well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room with a fitted bespoke Cotteswood kitchen incorporating a Mercury Dual Fuel Range Cooker (electric ovens and grill with LPG gas-fired hob) and Fired Earth wall and floor tiling. Below the inner hall stone steps lead down to a useful stone-flagged cellar. On the first floor there is a master bedroom suite with a separate dressing area and an en suite bathroom, 2 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The former coach house has been converted to provide 2 single garages with up and over metal doors on the ground floor and a self-contained 1 bedroom flat above, accessed by an external metal staircase.
The south-facing garden is a true plantsman's garden, with 2 areas of terraced lawn interspersed with borders brimming with shrubs and flowering plants designed to provide year-round colour. To the rear of the house there is a former privy, which is now a useful storage room and there is a paved upper terrace with a brick-built barbeque.
