Built of stone and render under a tile roof, Dial House has been renovated, extended and modernised by the current vendor into a delightful family home. Works include new windows, heating systems, kitchen, bathrooms and extending into the second floor. Combined with the high ceilings and tall windows that are part of the original design, there is a sense of light and space throughout. The property is slightly elevated above the village road and is thought to date predominantly from the late 19th century with earlier parts.
The entrance/dining hall with stained glass inner porch and traditional Victorian/Edwardian tile floor leads to the formal drawing room with large open fireplace and stone surround, wooden floors and large bay window that lets in a plethora of light.
To the left of the entrance hall is the sitting room/play room which could be used as a more formal dining room.
To the rear of the house is the kitchen/breakfast room with quarry tile floor, Rayburn solid fuel oven, fitted units and integrated washing machine, fridge, freezer, electric hobs, electric oven and microwave, as well as a pantry store. From the kitchen can be accessed the useful utility/boot room and further store room, as well as separate access to the cellar, currently used as a gym.
Stairs from the dining hall rise to the first floor comprising the guest bedroom with en suite wet room and power shower, four further bedrooms and family bathroom with roll top bath.
Stairs rise again to a wonderful master suite with bedroom, dressing area and stunning wet room.
