The numerous exposed timbers, trusses and natural stone walls all add to the huge charm of the property.Accessed from a quiet country lane and through the well-stocked front garden, the principal rooms are traditionally arranged on two floors. There's a welcoming reception lounge which leads through an inner hallway to the undoubted hub of this fine home, the beautiful c7.3m kitchen-dining room with it's handsome blue Aga. The cream cupboards and matching central island have gleaming black granite worktops and they provide plenty of storage and working space. The integrated dishwasher is included in the sale and there's ample space for a family-sized dining table too. To the rear of the building is a relaxing familysitting room with a wood burning stove. A door then leads on through to ahandy utility/boot room which also houses the central heating boiler.

The first floor rooms are designed to highlight the impressive rooftimbers and there's a spacious landing which could easily be used as aquiet study or reading area. The spectacular master bedroom has abuilt-in wardrobe and an en-suite shower room. There's a pretty guestbedroom with it's own en-suite bathroom, a further double bedroom and asmart family bathroom.
