It is probably only once in a lifetime that you get the chance to own a piece of English history. Originally built in the early 1600's this Georgian period property has been significantly extended and sympathetically modernised. This five bedroom detached home is unique and has been lovingly upgraded over the years without losing the essence of the original features that make this outstanding family house. From original oak flooring, to the Inglenook fireplaces the house oozes quality. The four reception rooms can be configured to your requirements and include the Sitting Room, Lounge, Breakfast/Snug Room and the beautiful Formal Dining Room. The period features are complimented by modern additions, such as the master bedroom which benefits from a recent addition of an en-suite. The home is heated by a modern Worcester boiler, there is a large utility/boot room and a downstairs cloakroom, added in the 1970's and recently modernised. To demonstrate the mix of old and new there is a modern style kitchen with a traditional style pantry attached. The outside space is equally impressive with fully enclosed front and rear gardens, gated access to the courtyard and even a large garage.
