Full description

DESCRIPTION Situated in the pretty village of Kencot, The Old Stable is a charming detached period property which has been sympathetically converted from a former farm building in the 1980's with more recent extensions. The house, now in need of updating, provides spacious accommodation with the potential to develop further. The property is complemented by a pretty walled garden, an oak framed car port with workshop and a gated gravel driveway providing parking.

Arranged over two floors, the property comprises a spacious ground floor with entrance hall, utility/cloakroom and boot room, a fitted kitchen with a range of pine units, a spacious sitting/dining room with raised fireplace with wood burning stove, and a further reception room with doors opening to the garden. Also at ground floor level is a bedroom and shower room. On the first floor leading off from a large landing with laundry area with plumbing for a washing machine and dryer, are three bedrooms and a bathroom. The main bedroom is a particularly spacious room providing the potential to create an en-suite bedroom. The landing also provides a seating/study area with fitted book shelves.

The property is approached via a gated driveway with a detached open bay car port and with parking for several cars in front of the house. The walled garden predominately south facing, provides a lovely setting and is arranged to the front of the house continuing round to a secluded area at the side. The garden is laid mainly to lawn with a variety of shrubs and trees and a terrace area with a pergola leads off the reception room perfect for al-fresco dining. A pedestrian access at the rear of the house leads to the back door.
