Sowerbys are delighted to offer a particularly handsome detached period property dating to 1890 in the heart of a pleasant rural village, Walpole Highway. The property has been an integral part of the this village for over a hundred years with part of the house being a former village shop and it has been a private residence since the late 1990s. The gardens are beautifully kept with a manicured green lawn and well-tended flower and shrub borders. They are also superb for entertaining having a purpose build outdoor covered dining and barbeque barn. The gardens are completely enclosed and secure behind remotely operated gates.

Inside the house there is a very nice feel and the accommodation is extensive. Downstairs there are four reception rooms; a dining room, sitting room, family room/study and custom built garden room. Furthermore there is a kitchen/breakfast room and rear entrance. Upstairs there are five bedrooms with two modern en-suite facilities, refitted family bathroom and a further bath and shower room on the ground floor making a total of four. The property has retained some fine sash windows in which the vendors have installed secondary glazing and the property has oil fired central heating.

Another significant benefit is the garage and coach house which is attached, this has garage below and partially converted first floor which could provide useful storage or much in the form of additional accommodation or office space if one requires (subject to any relevant planning consents).
