A delightful detached character house believed to have been built in the late 1920's using many reclaimed materials and features many exposed timbers, brick built fireplaces and oak joinery including flooring, doors and a fine oak staircase. The house has been enlarged with a later sympathetic addition which provides an adaptable further spacious sitting room and an extensive principle bedroom with a generous dressing room and en-suite bathroom. The triple aspect drawing room has a study area and both overlook the rear garden. There is also a well proportioned dining room, a kitchen/breakfast room complete with a gas fired Aga, a separate utility room and a cloakroom. Outside there is a sandstone garage with further garden stores and the gardens provide a wonderful setting extending in all to about 0.6 of an acre and enjoy superb south/westerly views to the rear over adjoining countryside.
