Tenure: Freehold

The sturdy panelled timber front door with glazed side panel welcomes you into this handsome seventeenth century farmhouse, filled with rustic charm. This appeal continues into the York stone flagged entrance hallway with exposed beams, display niche and three pitch pine latch doors stand before you, one being a walk-in storage cupboard housing the Worcester Bosch gas central heating boiler. Another gives access to the inner hall with its wooden spindle staircase to first floor having a storage cupboard beneath and the third opens into the fully tiled cloakroom with an opaque window to the rear and a coloured three piece suite complete with corner shower cubicle, pedestal wash basin and a low flush W.C.

Off the inner hall is the principal lounge with its feature stone mullion window niche and two prominent oak beams which stretch lengthways across the spacious room, however, the eye is immediately drawn to the exposed stone wall with full height stone-built ingle and beamed mantle housing a multi-fuel burning stove. At the far end of the room is a snug seating area where you could relax in the sunlight which streams through the two picture windows and the glazed panel door to the sun terrace and from where you can enjoy the simply breathtaking, uninterrupted views over the Douglas Valley.

Returning to the inner hall and taking a sharp right, you are taken through to the dining room with two double glazed windows to the rear, a beamed ceiling and a distinctive quarry tiled floor which continues through the pine latch door into the farmhouse kitchen. A wooden stable-style door leads to the side garden and a timber double glazed window to the front illuminates the room which has been fitted with a range of light oak units, a glazed display cabinet and drawer banks having pale laminate worktops and coordinating wall tiling. Cooking facilities are provided by the AEG four-burner gas hob having a chimney style extractor above and the eye-level AEG double oven and grill. There is an integrated fridge freezer and plumbing for an automatic dishwasher close to the inset stainless steel one and a half bowl sink unit with swan neck mixer tap which is set beneath the window with stunning views.

At the half-way turn of the staircase you pass a large double glazed window to the rear overlooking the courtyard below and mature gardens and woodland beyond. Arriving at the top you are greeted by a spacious landing with loft access overhead and timber latch doors leading to the four double bedrooms, bathroom, separate w.c. and storage cupboard. The spacious master bedroom has two built-in double wardrobes, a large double glazed window to the front, beamed ceiling and pitch pine latch door, epitomising the charm of this period property. The dual aspect second bedroom has windows to the rear and a stone mullion window and to the side. Bedrooms three and four, again, have latch doors and double glazed windows overlooking the grounds. There is a fully tiled bathroom featuring a tile-panelled bath, pedestal washbasin with shaver point above, laminate flooring and an opaque window to the side. The separate W.C. is also fully tiled and has its own pedestal wash hand basin and a circular window to the side.

Outside, double wrought iron gates open to the cobbled driveway and shale pathways which provide parking for numerous vehicles and lead not only to the entrance but to the stone-built double garage with timber up-and-over doors and security light. Inside there is further power and light and windows to the rear also illuminate the space. It has an adjoining utility room with plumbing for automatic washing machine and space for a tumble drier, fridge freezer and finished with a wall heater. The quarry tiled floors run into the attached kennels to rear with a secure outside run ideal for the family pet. The mature formal gardens and shrub borders extend out and wrap around the property giving roughly three quarters of an acre of lawns, York stone pathways, an ornamental pond, sun terraces and a rear flagged kitchen garden. To the edge of the property, via a six-barred gate, is a further discrete parking area screened by a mature hedge line, with its own security lighting and offering an ideal spot for caravan or horse box parking. Here you will also find the LPG tank for your central heating and an access way to the rendered out-buildings with power, light and water which could easily provide pony stabling. In addition to the formal grounds the property overlooks the sweeping three acre paddock which stretches down towards the tree line boundary and runs virtually parallel to the canal beyond.
