Entry to this lovely property is via the front door which leads into an internal porch. A pair of wooden doors take you into a fabulous reception room which is being used by the current owners as a dining room. The space is full of character by way of charming original beams and exposed floorboards from the room above. These are enhanced by a huge original range which is connected to a working flue, perfect for ‘in house dining’ barbecues if the weather is inclement! There is a sash window overlooking the front of the property and a magnificent stone slab floor taking you back in time. Various doors lead off with the first one taking you into the spacious lounge, also with a sash window to the front. There is delightful oak flooring and a pretty stone surround fireplace with a cast iron insert and tiling housing a charming wood burner on a slate hearth. One of the night storage heaters is here with the addition of a full wet oil central heating system. Wall lights and a ceiling light complete this room.

Moving across to the other side from the dining area is a further reception room which is a very large garden room running through from a pair of wood and glass French doors. The design of this space is spectacular with Velux windows in the roof and an elegant hexagonal section at the end. The windows are shaped at the end of the building adding further charm and there are windows all around the side offering panoramic views over the driveway leading up to the property and the surrounding countryside. French doors open out from here onto a patio at the front, yet another place to sit and enjoy the marvellous views. The floor is fully tiled and there is a wood burner for those cosy autumnal nights. A nice feature is the exposed stone wall at the rear of the house. 

A door leads on from here into the utility space which has a quarry tiled floor, plenty of cupboards and solid wood work surfaces, a stainless steel sink, plumbing and space for a washing machine, space for a tumble dryer and an under bench fridge or freezer.
