Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This fine and generously proportioned house retains an elegance and simple style, indicative of an Edwardian country home. Much of the original flavour and character has been retained by the current owners who have lovingly maintained the house and garden since January 1983.

The accommodation features many original style fireplaces, exposed polished wood or tiled floors, and picture rails. To retain the original windows, secondary glazing has been fitted throughout the house. A feature of the dining room is the beautifully preserved antique cast iron range. The kitchen has simple bespoke 'plain English' style wood units. There is LPG gas central heating.

Along with its stylish reception hall and staircase, excellent range of bedroom and reception rooms, there is ample scope for a sizeable family and their guests, or indeed, potential for Bed and Breakfast (subject to the necessary planning consents).

The front door leads into a vestibule with inner half-glazed door to The Reception Hall with attractive terracotta cream and black tiled floor. The staircase with polished wood hand rail rises gently to the first floor.
