INTRODUCTION Purchasers upon inspection will readily appreciate the opportunity to acquire a four reception and six bedroom property of immense character and appeal with many original features with the potential of further improvements to one's own taste. The property is set in 0.542 acres and has the particular benefit of an attached one bedroom annex with separate access, offering income potential, as well as several outbuildings.

The house itself offers a number of appealing features and a first class layout that maximises flexible living space. The Entrance Hall is in itself a large and imposing space with original Minton tiled floor. From the Entrance Hall, through an archway, the inner hall gives access to the Dining Kitchen, Lounge and Dining Room. There are also steps leading down to a useful cellar area. The Dining Room is situated at the front of the house and benefits from a bay window providing excellent natural lighting. The Lounge is a fantastic entertaining space with a feature fireplace as its primary focal point, having door providing access to the patio/garden. The Dining Kitchen is of generous size and positioned at the front of the house with a bay window, central island and a log burner set within an inglenook fireplace. The Dining Kitchen also gives access to a Cloakroom which provides external access to the rear. The Inner Hall gives further access to a separate WC, Utility Room and the Snug, situated to the rear of the property, having an attractive tiled fireplace and French doors leading into the patio/garden. Completing the accommodation at the ground floor level is the fourth reception room, which is currently being used as a Study, having an external door leading into the rear courtyard.

At First Floor level the accommodation continues to impress. From the landing access can be gained to the six bedrooms, all being of generous size. The Master Bedroom has the benefit of a dressing room which has the potential for conversion to an ensuite bathroom. At First Floor level there are two family bathrooms plus a separate WC.

In itself the house is a superb offering on the market. However taking into context the additional benefits found outside it really becomes a special and completely unique package offering numerous possibilities. The property has the benefit of an attached one bedroom annex which can also be accessed from the main house, offering potential for a number of different uses including dependent relative annex, home office or an all year round holiday let. As already mentioned there are further outbuildings plus a couple of stables situated in the grounds.

The gardens and grounds to the property are an absolute delight extending to 0.542 acres, being predominately laid to lawn, enjoying excellent levels of seclusion and privacy within part walled garden bordered by mature trees and hedging.
