Nock Deighton Country Homes are delighted to have been instructed to
bring The Swan to the market. Formerly a Public House, the property is
Grade II listed and sits on the site of an ancient monument.
A charming 4 bed village property with an abundance of character and a
useful barn all in a sought after village location.
The Swan is a welcoming property, enjoying an abundance of natural light,
located in the heart of the village which is a conservation area.
The Swan is located on Watling Street and has been lovingly converted by
our clients to a high standard. The property has been transformed into the
wonderful family home that it is today with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms,
drawing room, dining hall, reading room, attractive & bright kitchen, walled
garden, barn, and off road parking.
The Swan retains many of the original features of the original building however our clients were keen to ensure that the property is suitable for modern living. The property is entered from Watling Street through the front door and into the attractive dining hall with an impressive stone inglenook fireplace housing a Clearview log burning stove and exposed beams. This is a wonderful welcome into the home and is a charming area, ideal for entertaining with ample space for a dining table. Just off the dining hall is a comfortable reading area with shelving providing useful storage for books etc.
Adjacent to the dining hall is the drawing room, with windows allowing views onto Watling Street or back into the garden at the rear, this is a bright and comfortable room and again, a fireplace houses a Clearview log burning stove. There is a further reception room, currently utilised by our clients as a “craft room”, which is ideal as an office or to be retained as a hobby room. This room benefits from ample storage and shelving and makes a private space within the centre of the house.
From the dining hall, steps lead to the rear hall which has access to a dry and secure cellar, a W.C. and opens out to the kitchen. Rebuilt and designed by our clients, this kitchen is a light and airy space, with an open tiled floor providing ample space for an informal dining/breakfast table flanked by large double glazed windows. Skylights continue to allow light into the kitchen area. The glazed double doors can be opened out onto the patio area, ideal for the warmer days, or kept shut to allow enjoyment of the garden.
A useful utility room is to the rear of the kitchen with storage units, space and plumbing for a washing machine, tumble dryer and freezers and access to the outside.
From the hall, stairs lead to the first floor landing which provides access to the master suite, consisting of a double bedroom, ensuite bath and shower room and an adjoining dressing room with built in wardrobes, a further guest double room with ensuite shower room and two further single guest bedrooms which are served by a family bathroom with the original cast iron roll-top bath.
The property has secure off road parking for several cars accessed via a cobbled drive to the side of the property. The parking is to the front of a very useful and attractive half-timber barn which has a variety of uses and has the benefit of being connected to power. On the ground floor is a dry and secure space for logs, storage and a workshop, along with an area suitable for storing gardening equipment.
The first floor is currently used for further storage of pots etc and is accessed independently from wooden double doors and steps. With the relevant permissions this area is ideal for additional accommodation, such as a home office, a gymnasium, a cinema room or playroom etc.
The garden is mainly laid to lawn however it is split into several parts, one being a vegetable garden and another being a patio terrace ideal for al fresco dining & enjoying the views over the garden. There is also a separate log store, greenhouse and garden shed.
