The Property
Entering the property via the front door we are welcomed into the generous reception hall. This fantastic space provides the perfect spot for our coats and boots when returning from a country walk, whilst offering the space for furnishings that would allow this room to serve as an excellent study area or home office where needed. A window over looks the stunning gardens whilst a door pushes open to the sitting room. The sitting room offers the perfect balance of space coupled with the charm of the original building; an inglenook fire place gives home to the wood burning stove whilst a door to the left of the fire place leads to the staircase which rises to the first floor. Two windows over look the gardens and fill the room with natural light, whilst pamment tiles under foot complement the space and boast under floor heating both of which continue into our kitchen dining room. The family kitchen dining room enjoys a view over the gardens and benefits from french doors which open to generous patio area. At over 20 ft this impressive room offers ample space for entertaining and family living alike. The kitchen itself is fitted with a contemporary range of wall and base units set below solid wood work surfaces. The units incorporate our washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher whilst space and provisions are made for an electric cooker. A door leads to the rear porch where our ground floor cloakroom leads off and a door opens to the gardens. Climbing the stairs top the first floor landing we find separate access to all of the rooms and a second staircase rise to the second floor. Stepping along the landing we find the first of the four double bedrooms, this generous room enjoys a view over the gardens and boasts a generous storage cupboard that gives home to our hot water tank. The next of the rooms on this level is the family bathroom where a contemporary four piece suite comprises a bath, shower cubicle, w/c and a wash basin set within a vanity storage unit. Adjacent to the bathroom we find the smallest of the bedrooms which is still a generous double room before heading into the impressive master. The master bedroom enjoys a window which over looks the gardens and meadows beyond and offers ample space for a double bed and the required furnishings. Completing the accommodation we climb the stairs to our forth and final double bedroom. This room boasts a wealth of exposed timbers which reveal the true age of the property, exposed timber flooring further complements the space and eaves access and storage runs to either side.
