In the middle of the house, a square reception hall from which a railed staircase rises to the first floor. Discreetly positioned adjacent to the main hall there is a two-piece cloakroom with a low suite wc and a pedestal washbasin. There is a separate cloaks cupboard and shoe storage cupboard. The elegant lounge has dual aspect windows with a Minster stone chimney-piece and a log effect living flame gas fire for instant warmth and ambience; either side of it arched display alcoves. Beneath each window you’ll see period cast iron column radiators and above there are two ceiling light roses. With an opening to the breakfast kitchen, the ample dining room is a place you’ll enjoy entertaining guests. Square in shape, it has dual aspect windows and a coal effect living flame gas fire. An impressive limestone floor continues into the kitchen, creating a seamless flow of space. The traditionally styled kitchen cabinetry features hand painted timber doors paired with luxurious granite counters and a fluted draining board. Fridge, freezer and dishwasher are integrated and there is a gas fired Cookmaster range style cooker with seven rings, two ovens and a grill. The sink is an under-counter Blanco with a swan neck mixer tap. Beyond the rear door you’ll see a small porch with access to the rear drive. There is a separate utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and a tiled floor. One of the two boilers is located in here.

On the first floor there are four well balanced bedrooms. The sumptuous master is positioned above the equally spacious lounge. It too has dual aspect windows with the rear looking across the Brook towards the stone arched bridge. Fitted furniture along one wall consisting of wardrobes, drawers and shelved cupboards. There is a three-piece en-suite bathroom comprising a vanity washbasin, low suite wc and an “air bath”. Towels warm on a ladder radiator and there is a shelved airing cupboard with a panelled radiator. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are both front facing doubles, each with built-in robes.

The equally stylish three-piece house bathroom comprises a glazed quadrant cubicle with a thermostatic shower and easy-clean shower board, pedestal washbasin and a low suite wc. A ladder radiator for towels and a built-in toiletries cupboard.

Outside - Sat proudly within stone walled gardens of considerable beauty, the roadside wall has galvanised metal railings, a security gate and electrically operated oak timber gates that open to the gravelled front drive which leads to the detached garage. The garage has planning permission to increase the roof height in order to create detached ground floor kitchen and first floor residential annexe; ideal for both family or guest use. Built from concrete block with a dash rendered finish, it has an electric roller shutter door, windows overlooking the garden, light and power. Behind the house is a further gated drive which offers additional off-road secure parking if required. The delightful garden is quintessentially English in concept with a box edged footpath, limestone edged planting beds, a feature pond with a central urn and three stunning silver birch trees. The beds were conceived and planted out by the RHS award winning Holden Clough Nursery. With an east – south/easterly orientation, the garden enjoys a sun-drenched aspect. You can reach the lower level patio area either by seven shallow steps or a gently sloping walled ramp. Bordering the brook, you can enjoy the gently rippling water as it passes by. This section is part stone walled and part metal railed with gated access to some steps that reach down to the Brook bank. Attached to the garage is a metal railed dog kennel and beneath the house are three individual compartments. One has a sink, kitchen cabinetry and plumbing for a washing machine, the middle one houses the central heating boiler and is great for airing clothes, with the third fitted out as an office with a glazed door and casement window overlooking the patio. The abundant sound of bird song leaves an abiding pleasant memory.
