Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An opportunity to purchase a piece of history in the heart of Highweek. A three-bedroom, semi-detached house with a loft room, rear garden and on road parking.

This grade II listed property dates from 1628 and was remodelled in 1850 into its present form. It has retained its character and many original period features such as large stone fireplaces, Georgian-paned sash windows through the thick rough-rendered walls with window seats below.

A gate into the walled garden leads to the front door on the glazed veranda. Inside, the property immediately feels warm and cosy with the heat from the wood burning stove reaching all parts of the house. The living room has sturdy, blackened beams spanning the room, and a large, stone, inglenook fireplace with an oak lintel, fitted with the wood burning stove, making a fabulous feature for the room, and there is plenty of natural light from the sash window overlooking the garden.

The dining room has a lovely tiled floor, another stone fireplace, fitted with a multi-fuel Rayburn. There is a beautiful stained-glass window to the adjacent utility room, and an under-stairs cupboard, with a stripped pine door and black iron hinges and latch, providing storage. The kitchen is spacious with plenty of worktop space, and a range of oak-fronted kitchen units in a country kitchen style. A large range cooker fits perfectly in a stone fireplace, with several ovens and a seven-ring halogen hob. There is floor space for an upright fridge/freezer, and an adjacent utility room has a sink and room for more essential white appliances. The condensing combi boiler, sits on the wall, providing the hot water and heating on demand, there is a convenient downstairs WC, and a back door leads to a courtyard of hard standing where there is a storage shed, and a gate to the garden.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, two doubles and a single, all with lovely features such as bare floorboards, some of which are original, decorative fireplaces and sash windows with window seats. The split-level landing leads to the bathroom, with lovely, polished, original floorboards and a modern suite containing a bath, with a double-headed shower and screen above, a vanity unit with a basin and hidden cistern WC, and working shutters to the half-obscured sash window.

A staircase from the third bedroom leads up into the loft room. A fabulous space, carpeted and decorated, with vaulted ceiling and exposed white-painted roof timbers, a Velux skylight provides natural light and there is extensive storage by way of cupboards in the eaves. This room could make a great hobby room, study or even a bedroom if required.

Outside, the garden is wonderful. The veranda runs the length of the house, making a great, all-weather spot to relax. There is a timber pergola, a neat lawn bordered by rock-edged beds of plants, flowers and shrubs, and a patio at the centre makes a lovely venue for drinks with friends and family. There is a shed, a timber workshop, and a summer house, and the garden is fully enclosed making it safe for children and pets.

A lovely property, full of character and charm. A viewing is essential to fully appreciate all that is on offer.
