On entering the property at the front, there is an L-shaped entrance hall with beautiful tiled floor, built in storage and staircase to the first floor. The main drawing room is a particularly good size and has an open fire, feature alcove and dual aspect windows. Across the hall, there is a separate reception room with large sash window and solid wood floor, currently used as a music room. The hall then leads through to a dining room which incorporates an attractive flagstone floor and the kitchen. Fitted with a range of floor and wall units, the kitchen enjoys plenty of natural light and includes a built in pantry. A glazed door from the kitchen then opens into a very useful utility/boot room, which has access to outside, plumbing for washing machine, plenty of storage and also houses the boiler for the gas central heating. In addition to the extensive ground floor accommodation, there is a cloakroom and another reception room on the north side of the house. Presented by the current owners as a library, this lovely dual aspect room has a central inset fire and French windows overlooking the neighbouring gardens.

On the first floor, there are two very good size bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate WC. The Master bedroom, which has two large sash windows at the front also includes a walk-in dressing area and en-suite bathroom.

The second floor accommodation comprises two further double bedrooms, both with built in storage and one with a particularly pleasant outlook at the rear, across to the church and the countryside beyond.

In summary, Beech House is an impressive period residence with plenty of character that has been occupied by the same family for over 24 years. The property offers substantial and versatile living accommodation, a stone's throw from the High Street.
