Vendor Insight - Situated in a superb location right in the heart of the delightful village of Yardley Gobion is The Old Hall, an extremely attractive property that dates back to 1865.

Before we purchased The Old Hall in 2010 we were living not far from here in another property within the village, says Terence, but our children were growing up and about to move on so we decided to downsize a little. When we came across this property, though it wasnt an awful lot smaller than the house we were in, we were so taken by the peaceful location and the character of the house, that we decided to go for it. The previous owners had done a beautiful job of renovating the property and they managed to retain all of its external period charm, while giving it a more contemporary look and feel inside. Theres an easy flow from room to room - which makes it a very comfortable house to live in and also ideal for entertaining all of the rooms are generously proportioned and theres also a really nice connection with the garden via the dining room and the kitchen.
The garden is a really good size and backs onto a small paddock, so its peaceful and private, continues Terence. Theres a very large patio terrace where we have a table and chairs and the BBQ, and the rest of the space is laid to lawn with a mature border of shrubs and trees. I must say weve gained an awful lot of enjoyment from the garden, both as a family space and for entertaining friends.
The hub of the home is the lovely big kitchen, says Terence. We have a settee and bar stools, so its not only practical but its also a very sociable space. It also has patio doors, so the space can be extended into the garden when the weather is warm.
A new shop has just opened up in the village, so day-to-day needs are catered for, says Terence, and we also have a nice pub and a sports-and-social club close by, but what I love most about the location is that its so incredibly peaceful.
In the smallest reception room weve created a gym and sauna, Terence continues, which is a really nice feature of the property.
Ill definitely miss the peaceful nature of the location when we move, but also the space both inside the house and out in the garden. Its just a really lovely family home.
