Property Description

Full description

A well presented 3 bedroom conversion within a circa 1754 building. Stunning rural views located within the picturesque village of Lower Froyle.


Description 
Reputed to have originated as a Merchants House and granary, the property was created as part of an ingenious conversion into three totally differing units some decades ago and then subject to complete refurbishment in around 2007 having at one stage been the village shop as far back as the 19th Century. Whilst not a Listed building, architectural details of interest include the varying levels of the 3 bedroom accommodation, exposed beams, higher ceilings to the first floor and eclectic selection of latch and traditional recessed panelled doors with moulded architraves and skirting boards and externally, clay tiles and slates to the roof areas. All the rooms are independently accessed from the halls or landing whilst the vistas are over neighbouring properties to the surrounding and undulating open countryside. The property benefits from double glazing featuring ironmongery furniture and gas heating system.
