Full description

Dating back to the 1860’s, this engaging converted Malthouse has considerable appeal from the outside – and the interior does not disappoint! Entered via a welcoming and bright HALLWAY which has a tiled floor with a large storage area under the stairs, the ground floor has an impressive SITTING/DINING ROOM which is exceptionally spacious with views over the rear garden framed by the two sets of French doors (with full length shutters) which open onto the patio. A central fireplace adds character to the room and is fitted with a multi-fuel stove upon a slate hearth. The KITCHEN is a characterful space which leads into a conservatory overlooking the garden. Within the kitchen space is a range of wall and base units including a full length unit for a fridge/freezer flanked by a larder cupboard and shelving; there is also an eye-level grill, oven and an electric hob. The CONSERVATORY is a wonderfully bright room from which to enjoy the garden and has French doors leading to the patio.

From the HALLWAY, a wide staircase with exposed timber bannister rises to the FIRST FLOOR; the landing area is also a bright space with its window overlooking the front aspect as well as a skylight window; an exposed beam adds period detail. In addition there is a useful large airing cupboard where the solar energy systems water boiler is located. On this floor there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The MASTER BEDROOM is a bright and airy room with a plethora of integral storage cupboards and space for further furnishings. BEDROOM 2 is a good size double room with a dual aspect, an integral wardrobe and shelving. BEDROOM 3 has built-in twin beds, and a wardrobe area. BEDROOM 4 is a single bedroom with a low level window, and a sky light window flooding the room with light: it is currently used as a home office. The FAMILY BATHROOM has been recently updated and comprises a bath, WC and hand-wash basin. A second BATHROOM is also a good size room; it is partially tiled with a large shower unit, hand-wash basin and WC and also has space and plumbing for a variety of white goods.

To the side of the property is a PARKING area for approximately two cars. A side gate gives access to the rear garden which is attractively landscaped with a variety of mature shrubs and a raised lawn to the rear bordered by colourful flower beds. Strategically placed seating areas take advantage of the sunny aspect and a well, fitted with a pump system, adds further interest.
